KL Rahul in just his fifth ODI as a wicketkeeper put on the ‘Pant’ mask and missed the easiest of opportunities to increase the dismissal to seven as the Indian wicketkeeper. All of this happened when Rahul could not collect Manish Pandey’s throw to affect the run-out to dismiss Henry Nicholls.
New Zealand openers were up and running in the chase after India only managed to put on 296 runs on board in the first innings. Martin Guptill, in particular, took on the attacking role and tonked Jasprit Bumrah and the other Indian bowlers all over the Bay Oval. India looked clueless against the two as they managed to weather the early storm posted by the Indian bowlers with the swinging delivery. However, once the ball got old, the batting got better, the openers godlike, hitting some of the best shots in the series. 
As Guptill struck Bumrah over the leg-side, Nicholls drove Shardul Thakur in the off-side for a brilliant boundary. The game, however, decided to present India with an opportunity when Guptill tapped the ball on the off-side and took off. For once, the running duo synced, despite the run being highly risky with an on-rushing Manish Pandey. Pandey’s pick up was excellent and the throw even better, hitting the ball straight into the gloves of Rahul. For Rahul, it was the easiest of run-outs to make inroads in the New Zealand batting order. Stop, freeze the time, as this is when Rahul struggled as a wicketkeeper. 
One of the rarest moments in the series, when Rahul has failed at anything in the series as he struck the stumps before collecting the ball. It gave the left-handed Nicholls another life in the game, with New Zealand already on the up chasing India’s 296.
This is what happened!

When he keeps scores 100, people turn a blind eye to his wicket-keeping!

@cricketaakash @vikrantgupta73 It is a irony that we always try to findout what rishabh made mistakes when he plays match but in case of KL Rahul’s we see what he did good not see his mistakes ( a runout chance) but we all will ignore it.

So Virat is going to end this ODI series without scoring a ton 😓

Side note: KL Rahul’s form has made things shaky for Rishabh Pant. I don’t see how the electrifying left hander is going to break into the team with Rahul batting well and keeping wicket. 🇮🇳

New Zealand has defeated India in the last three ODI. India failed to chase a smallish total at Old Trafford. NZ chased a mountain at Hamilton. And then defended a below-par score at Auckland. #NZvInd

KL Rahul wicket-keeping is as good as Rishabh Pant then you realize what wrong Rishabh Pant did actually to drop clueless Captain

With the way KL Rahul is batting in the middle order and keeping wickets, Rishabh Pant’s entry into the 11 looks impossible. Rahul’s batting in limited overs cricket is 👌#INDvNZ
