After winning the toss, the Kiwi skipper, Mitchell Santer decided to bat first owing to a turn on the pitch. However, they only managed to score just 99 runs for the loss of 8 wickets.

In the 15th over of the chase during the chase bowled by Glenn Philips, Suryakumar Yadav tried the reverse sweep but only managed to get some bat on the pad, and the ball rolled towards point. Even as New Zealand appeals for the lbw, Yadav tool off for the single. It should be Washington’s call, but he keeps running even as Washington has his hand up.

In the end, Washington Sundar decided to sacrifice himself. The third umpire is called upon to check if they have crossed. He also checks the lbw, which shows a bit of glove. Team India eventually won the game with just one ball to spare and 6 wickets in hand owing to the partnership between Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav.
