Indian allrounder Deepak Hooda’s dismissal attracted a lot of attention in the third match of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. The dismissal left the commentators and fans puzzled.
The fourth ball of the 34th over was not the best Tim Southee delivery. It was banged in short and was going down the leg side, tempting Hooda to pull only to get a nick. But the on-field umpire did not spot the edge Hooda got, the same happened with wicket-keeper Tom Latham and bowler Southee. Considering the ball was down the leg side and well past the stumps, the umpire straightaway signaled a wide.
Yet, after a while, Latham and Southee went to have a chat with skipper Kane Williamson and told him to challenge the decision, Williamson agreed with them and went upstairs, and the snicko showed a clear spike when the bat was next to the ball, resulting in the change of the decision from not out to out.

New Zealand wrap up the series by 1-0
The third ODI between India and New Zealand at Christchurch was called off due to rain. With this outcome, New Zealand win the three-match series 1-0. The hosts had won the series opener by seven wickets and the following two matches were abandoned due to rain.
After winning the toss skipper Kane Williamson invited India to bat first. India started their innings slowly and lost their openers under 13 overs. Shreyas Iyer looked assured, timing his cuts and punches through the off-side well while also not shying away from the heaves to the leg side. But Pant couldn’t keep himself calm and ended up throwing his wicket to Adam Milne.
Iyer and Washington Sundar were the top-scorer from the Indian innings and helped India to achieve a respectful total of 219. However, Rain took center stage again, washing out the final match of the series in Christchurch after 18 overs of the New Zealand chase of India’s 219. Finn Allen scored 57 runs off 54 balls and Devon Conway was batting on 38 not out in 51 balls, New Zealand were at 104 for 1, well ahead of the DLS target, when the players were taken off the field at Hagley Oval.
