“When Misfortune Hits, It Hits You In Many Ways,” that can be the case of Shreyas Iyer, a prolific run scorer in the domestic cricket, gets less chances in the national setup and when the mode of dismissal is a “hit wicket” nothing can be more unfortunate than this. The Mumbai batter started from a boundary when he faced his first ball against an economical Ish Sodhi which clearly showed his mindset upfront.
He looked in great touch before the fourth ball of the 13th over which made it an unfortunate outing for him. Ferguson bowled a ball on short length and Iyer flicked it to deep square leg but his back leg went so deep that it hit the wicket and the bails fumbled to send him packing.

India managed to score 191 runs in the course of 20 overs after Tim Southee held the scoring in the last over where he claimed hattrick after taking the wickets of Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar in the 3rd, 4th and 5th ball of the over respectively. Suryakumar Yadav’s blistering 111 off 51 balls was instrumental to take India to a par score in Mount Maunganui.
