Team India will face New Zealand in the first match of the three-match series at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The game saw a controversial dismissal as Hardik Pandya was bowled while replays showed that Tom Latham had removed the bails with his gloves. Ishan Kishan came up with a hilarious reaction to the incident in the second innings as he blew off the bails with his gloves while Latham was at the crease.
India started well in their defense of a mammoth score of 350 as the visitors were at 89/4 at the start of the innings. Earlier in the match, Shubman Gill’s double century played a key role in the team’s impressive total. However, the innings also saw one of the most controversial dismissals in recent times, involving Hardik Pandya and Tom Latham.

Hardik was adjudged bowled by the TV umpire while Latham dropped the bails from his gloves and Ishan Kishan reacted cheekily to the incident in the second innings.
The 16th over of the innings was bowled by Kuldeep Yadav and Tom Latham was on strike on the fourth ball. He relentlessly defended deliveries bowled by the spinner but the bails were uprooted and the Indian team appealed for his wicket.

The TV umpire went up and saw Ishan Kishan desperately trying to get the bails out of his gloves. A sly smile appeared on the wicket-keeper’s face after being caught red-handed, knowing full well that he was giving the batsman a taste of his own medicine.

Ishaan Kishan 😂😂 . Tom Latham deserved to be trolled like this by Ishan Kishan. He should have repeated it but what Tom Latham did without appealing was disgusting.#INDvNZ
