The second match of the T20I series between India and New Zealand was held on Sunday, January 29th at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. In which New Zealand cricket team captain Mitchell Santner decided to bat first after winning the toss.
Which turned out to be very wrong. Indian team spinners were completely ineffective. New Zealand, while batting first, scored 99 runs on the loss of 8 wickets. And India won the match by 6 wickets. Meanwhile, during the first innings, Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav made a mistake by dropping a catch, but he soon rectified his mistake.
In the 13th over of the New Zealand innings, India’s part-time spinner Deepak Hooda was bowling. On the fourth ball of his over, the present batsman Mark Chapman tried to hit more runs, but he couldn’t time the ball well.
The ball was in the air for a little while. Kuldeep Yadav tried to catch it in a 30-yard circle, but he failed and couldn’t reach the ball. It is believed that soon after, Kuldeep corrected his mistake. After hitting the six, batsman was looking to rotate the strike.
However, the non-striker was not in sync with his partner, as a result of which he ended up standing in the middle of the pitch. In this situation, Kuldeep quickly threw the ball to the wicketkeeper on the non-striker’s end. As a result, the batsman was dismissed for 14 runs.
