It was quite an exciting 50th over for the Indians. The match began with Nitin Menon giving Ajinkya Rahane out caught on the leg side. However, the Indian skipper quickly reviewed it. Replays showed that there was no inside edge, so the decision was reversed. Rahane was able to survive, but the right-hander’s luck today meant that he was promptly dismissed.
Ajinkya Rahane was not able to enjoy the DRS saving him. He was bowled by Kyle Jamieson on the next ball of the India-New Zealand first Test in Kanpur. Rahane was India’s stand-in captain in this Test match. He looked confident against the New Zealand bowlers. Just as things looked bright, Rahane smashed one back on his stumps in the second session. It is possible that Rahane’s DRS survival in the previous ball played a part in this as it was an unforced shot by the veteran right-hander.

Rahane was right to admit that the ball was meant to be cut. The ball was too short, it was too wide. But the problem with Rahane’s approach was that he tried to force it. Instead of using Jamieson’s speed and bounce to guide him through the gap, he wanted to force the issue. He paid the price. Rahane gained an inside edge on his stumps.
He had to walk back for 35 of 65 balls. He hit six boundaries during his innings.
