The incident took place in the third over of the match. Rohit came to the crease after Indian opener Ishant Kishan was dismissed in the fifth ball by Trent Bolt. Bolt received Rohit, who is also his captain in the IPL, with a beautiful bouncer. But Rohit, who plays the pull shot skillfully, missed this time.
The ball went straight into the hands of Adam Milne at the boundary line. In the second match in a row, Rohit was confirmed as the Golden Duck and the fans could not believe their eyes. Rithika was with them in the gallery. But the ball did not stay in Milne’s hands.

The video also shows Rithika praying to God for the New Zealand star’s mistake. But these prayers did not last long. Rohit, who scored just 14 off 14 balls, was soon caught by Martin Guptill off Ish Sodhi.
Meanwhile, India suffered a batting collapse in the crucial match against New Zealand. After losing the toss and opting to bat first, India scored 110 for seven in the allotted 20 overs. Ravindra Jadeja was India’s top scorer with 26 not out off 19 balls, including a six and two fours.
Tend Bolt took three wickets for 20 runs in four overs. Ish Sodhi also took two wickets for just 17 runs in four overs. The Kiwis bowlers showed that India could not score a single boundary in 10 overs in an innings.
