Hardik Pandya Pulled a stunning one-handed catch for the dismissal Devon Conway During the second ODI between India and New Zealand at Raipur on Saturday. New Zealand got off to a disappointing start, and it got worse as Conway bowled his shot straight back to Pandya. The all-rounder was slightly off-balance but that did not stop him from catching the ball left-handed. This resulted in the crowd erupting into cheers as Conway was stunned by the athleticism on display.

A pace attack led by Mohammed Shami produced a sharp spell on a tricky surface as India bowled out New Zealand for 108 runs.
After New Zealand fell to 15 for 5 in the 11th over, the rabid fans who thronged the distant Shaheed Bir Narayan Singh Stadium for Raipur’s first international, feared an early end.
Shami (3/18) and Mohammad Siraj (1/10) Helped make life difficult for the batsmen with their high-quality seam bowling on the pitch. Stopping the odd ball made the batters task more difficult.
Bracewell made his intentions clear by hitting Shami at cover. After being hit for a straight four in the 19th over, Shami bowled a sharp bouncer and Bracewell went to pull it back to the keeper.
Mitchell Santer (27), who scored a fifty in Hyderabad, joined Phillips and put the team past 100 with a 47-run partnership for the seventh wicket. However, both were dismissed in the space of six balls, ending New Zealand’s hopes of a recovery.
