India lost their second wicket to a short ball with Ajinkya Rahane dismissed for three runs in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at Hamilton on Tuesday.
Batting first, India opener with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. But Kohli didn’t last long dismissed by a short ball by Tim Southee. The New Zealand bowlers kept their line and length tight to restrict the strokes from the crafty Indian batsmen.
Kyle Mills in particular found his length perfectly pitching it just short of good length. Rahane who looked good at the start tried to pull a short delivery and spooned a simple catch to Tim Southee at deep fine-leg.
Ambati Rayudu joined Rohit after Rahane’s dismissal. Rohit was tentative but managed to play some impressive strokes and earned two sixes.
