Indian skipper Virat Kohli brought up his 32nd One Day International ton in the 3rd ODI versus New Zealand at Kanpur. Virat Kohli stitched a partnership of 200+ runs with Rohit Sharma, who scored 147 runs. Virat Kohli, who sets high standards in the field is rarely seen involved in a misfield or giving away needless runs. But it happened on the night of the decider. The Kiwis were chasing 338, and this incident happened in the first over. New Zealand had got off to a flyer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was bowling with the new ball. In the last ball of the over, Colin Munro hit the ball to Virat Kohli, who was positioned at cover. He saw with his peripheral eye that Martin Guptill was out of his crease, hence he took a shy at the stumps. With having one stump to aim at with no backup, Virat missed the stumps and the ball went for an overthrow boundary. Virat Kohli was later seen laughing off the episode. It must have hurt Virat, knowing the sort of aggressive captain he is.
Here is the event:

So in the video, you must have seen how Virat Kohli reacted. Earlier in the day, New Zealand won the toss and opted to field first. India lost Shikhar Dhawan early but Rohit Sharma along with Virat Kohli managed to set a target of 338 for the visitors. As we speak, the visitors have got off to a good start and are on course of the chase. They are 120 for 1 after 19 overs.

This is a big total India have set up but it is not out of reach for the visitors. With dew playing a massive part in the match, it will be difficult for India to win the match.
