Watch: India vs. New Zealand: Hardik Pandya Dismisses Devon Conway With a Beautiful One-Handed Catch

In the second one-day international, Hardik Pandya made a stunning catch to dismiss Devon Conway, leaving him stunned.

During the second one-day international match that took place on Saturday in Raipur between India and New Zealand. Hardik Pandya made a stunning one-handed catch to dismiss Devon Conway.

New Zealand got off to a disappointing start. Which got worse when Conway mishit a shot that went right back at Pandya.

Even though the all-rounder was a little off-balance, he was still able to catch the ball with his left hand. The crowd erupted in applause, and Conway was clearly taken aback by the athleticism on display.

India’s pace attack, led by Mohammed Shami, bowled New Zealand out for 108 on a difficult surface.
Passionate fans who flocked to the faraway Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh Stadium for Raipur’s first international match feared an early finish after New Zealand fell to 15 for 5 in the 11th over.

On a helping pitch, Shami (3/18) and Mohammed Siraj (1/10) used high-quality seam bowling to make the batters’ lives difficult. The batters had to work harder because of the oddball stopping.

Despite New Zealand’s dire situation, centurion Michael Bracewell (22) and equally dangerous Glenn Phillips (36) in the middle saved the day.

By stepping out to hit Shami over cover, Bracewell made it clear what he wanted to do. In the 19th over, after striking Bracewell for back-to-back fours, Shami bowled a quick bouncer. Bracewell attempted to pull the ball, but it bounced back to the keeper.

With a 47-run partnership for the seventh wicket. Mitchell Santer (27), who had scored a fifty in Hyderabad, joined Phillips to push the team past 100. However, both were run out in six balls to put an end to New Zealand’s hopes of recovering.

Phillips gave Suryakumar Yadav a regulation catch at deep midwicket off a long hop from Washington Sundar (2/7). While Santner played a well-hidden slower ball from Hardik onto the stumps.

The New Zealand innings ended in 34.3 overs when number 11 Blair Tickner was caught by Kuldeep Yadav (1/29) in front.
