India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I: So, was it daylight robbery when Daryl Mitchell was given out leg before wicket in the 2nd T20I at Auckland? Krunal appealed and the umpire raised his finger. Mitchell felt he had got a nick on that and opted for the DRS. The DRS was used, which wasn’t conclusive and it showed the ball was hitting the stumps. The third umpire preferred snicko over hotspot which is not a common practice and that is what is creating the hullaballoo. Daryl would feel he was robbed after he had to depart for 1. Mitchell was caught in the crease as he went back, the bat came down hurriedly as he jabbed at it.
Here is the video:
In the meanwhile, Krunal Pandya has already picked up three wickets. The Blackcaps are 130/5 in 17th over. Santner has just come in after Grandhomme departed for a breezy 28-ball 50. Ross Taylor is looking to settle in and get set for the final onslaught. Kiwis look well on course to get a 170-180 score.
Meanwhile, both teams have gone in unchanged from the Wellington game where India was decimated by 80 runs. With it being a must-win game for India, the Rohit Sharma-led outfit will look to bounce back.
