Captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill provided the perfect start to Team India with their 212-run opening stand in 26 overs. The hosts were staring at a colossal 400-run total against New Zealand in the third and final ODI match of the series in Indore. But in a space of 10 overs, momentum slipped out of the hands of India as they lost four quick wickets. One of those dismissals was a result of a horrible mix-up between Virat Kohli and Ishan Kishan which led to the latter's dismissal and was followed by a cold exchange between the two batters.

The incident happened in the 35th over of India's innings. Ishan tapped the length ball from Jacob Duffy towards cover and called for a quick single. Kohli hesitantly took off, but then picked up his speed after watching Ishan run for the single. But while Ishan halted his run midway, Kohli kept sprinting. Ishan had a look at the fielder, who by then had collected the ball and thrown it towards the other end. Ishan turned back to run towards the striker's end but Kohli had already beaten him to the crease.

Replays had clarified that Kohli had reached the crease before Ishan implying that the latter was dismissed. But even before the replays were shown, Ishan had already made his walk towards the dug-out and the camera caught a tense moment between the two batters. Kohli was seen visibly disappointed with his head down and his hand on his hip. And as Ishan made his way back, upon crossing his partner, Kohli mouthed a few words which even evoked a response from Kishan.

Watch the video below:

Ishan was stuck on 17 off 24 balls. Although he had smacked a six and hit a four, the New Zealand bowlers had him all tied up, whereas Kohli was batting brilliantly having struck three boundaries and a six. So at that stage, if there was one batter India wanted to keep batting, it was Kohli. However, two overs later, Kohli too perished for 36 holing out to mid-off trying to clear the fielder.

New Zealand kept the Indian innings quiet until the final 10 overs where Hardik Pandya switched gears and even with wickets falling at the other end, kept the scorecard ticking by striking a half-century. He added an important partnership of 54 runs with Shardul Thakur for the 7th wicket, one that was crucial in taking India close to 385/9.

As for the match, Rohit ended his long-standing century drought with his 30th ton in ODIs. It was his first in the format in over 1100 days and first in international cricket in 509 days. Gill too continued his sublime form to score yet another hundred. Having beaten New Zealand in the first two ODIs, India now aim for a whitewash in Indore and a win here will propel to the top of the ODI rankings.
