The second T20I between India and New Zealand got underway on November 20 at Mount Maunganui. The New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and asked India to bat first. The Hardik Pandya-led team put on 191 runs on the board in 20 overs. During the innings, India batter Shreyas Iyer was dismissed in a bizarre fashion.
Shreyas Iyer came out to bat at number four following Ishan Kishan’s dismissal. Team India was at 69/2 in around nine overs at that moment. The right-handed batter got together with Suryakumar Yadav to put on a small partnership. He slammed a six and a boundary to keep the scoreboard running. However, his stay at the crease came to an end, as he was dismissed hit wicket.
In the thirteenth over, Lockie Ferguson bowled a back-of-a-length delivery. Shreyas Iyer went back and flicked the ball to the deep square leg. However, during the process, his back heel touched the stumps and displaced the bails. The Indian batter walked back to the hut disappointed, scoring thirteen runs from nine deliveries.
