Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan got themselves involved in a horrific run-out in the ongoing third ODI against New Zealand. In the 35th over of ongoing India’s innings, the latter played towards mid-off facing Jacob Duffy. Kohli, who is known to pick quick singles kept running toward the striking end. However, Kishan, on the other hand, didn’t respond the way he might have.
The result of this was both batters were on the same side of the pitch. Notably, the left-hander, Kishan saw Kohli reaching the crease. After watching this, the former decided not to try and reach either end of the wicket. Instead, the former India U19 skipper, Ishan decided to sacrifice his wicket as he was struggling with the bat as well. He only managed 17 off 24 balls including a six and a four.

Virat Kohli ends the ODI series against New Zealand sans a hundred
Meanwhile, ahead of the series, the former India skipper needed two hundreds to get past Virender Sehwag’s seven hundreds record against the Kiwis. At this point, Kohli has five against the Blackcaps. Also, not to forget, the right-hander, Virat hit two hundreds against Sri Lanka in the preceding series.
However, in the ongoing series, he has managed 8, 11, and 36 in the three-match series. The score of 36 is his highest score of the series for him. In the ongoing game, the Delhi player started well as he hit a second-ball six to get going. After playing for 26 balls, he scored 36 including six and three fours. However, two overs after Kishan’s wicket, Kohli was caught at mid-off by Finn Allen off Duffy. At the time of writing, Men In Blue scored 385/9.
After the wickets of Kishan and Kohli, the team kept losing wickets in regular intervals. However, thanks to Hardik Pandya’s half-century and Shardul Thakur’s cameo, the home team reach the daunting total for the Kiwis.
