The iconic Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium is set to host the series decider game between India and New Zealand. Indian captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to bat first, despite team India’s easy yet tough chase in the 2nd T20I.
Santner’s decision to bring in spinners early in the game is an unusual strategy, despite the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium’s pitch favouring the ‘pacers’ tonight. According to the analysis, Bracewell was called in for Ishan Kishan, who struggles to settle when spinners dominate early overs, leaving no time for Ishan to create a comfort zone for big shots. Santner’s plan ultimately worked as Ishan Kishan fumbled in playing against Bracewell and the LBW decision by Nitin Menon remained “OUT” despite Ishan Kishan opting for DRS.
Netizens react to Ishan Kishan’s early dismissal –
After so many chances, Ishan kishan is still failing in T20I but BCCI isn't even giving a single chance to Prithiv Shaw. 💔
I just hope he do his best in IPL nd slaps everyone face.#INDvsNZ pic.twitter.com/kA2Cj4MR0s
