DK Pulls of a stunner in IND vs NZ First T20I


The first T20I between India and NewZealand Commenced recently. The bad news is that India Lost the T20I Batting second. Summarising the first T20I, New Zealand scored a mammoth of 219.
In return, India could only manage 139 in 19.2 overs. Hard Luck!

What caught everyone's eye was the stunner from Dinesh Kartik on the boundary to dismiss Daryl Mitchell! New Zeland got off to a flyer in the first T20I. The Kiwi Opener Colin Munro Played a brilliant Knock of 34 from 20 deliveries. Things weren't looking good for India then. What added to the misery was, in 11th over Dinesh Kartik put down the Kiwi Opener! It was a dolly indeed which he should have clinched on.

It was a lucky day for Kartik as God seem to be very kind on him. He pulled off a brilliant catch on the ropes to dismiss Mitchell. Having patience and keeping the nerve is important in such situations which is exactly what Dinesh Karthik did!

The event goes this way,
It was the final delivery of the 15th over when Hardik Pandya bowled a length delivery to Mitchell. The debutant went for the lob over the long-on boundary, but the connection was not perfect as the ball sailed straight to Karthik. Emphasizing more on it, Karthik was moving backward after catching the ball comfortably and the 33-year-old showed a brilliant presence of mind to push the ball back before stepping on the ropes. Karthik did touch the ropes after releasing the ball and completed a sensational take by diving forward and grabbing it.

We certainly need to forget what happened earlier and appreciate the efforts of our won DK. In the absence of the regular Skip Virat Kohli, Indian team seems to be struggling a lot! The performance of the team in the 4th ODI and the first T20I is worrying many. This is a clear indication to tighten up their shoes as the world cup isn't far.


Thank you for your time and patience !
