In the ongoing 3rd T20I Match between India & New Zealand, India have set a target of 185 in front of the Kiwis. In reply, the New Zealand team is struggling from the start to keep wickets in hand. In the 13th over, Rishabh Pant took an excellent catch to dismiss James Neesham. 

On the 3rd delivery of the over, Harshal Patel bowled a full-length ball angling into the batter. Neesham swung his bat across the line but the ball caught a thick edge off his bat and went into the air. 


Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant swirled under it, first went to his left. He immediately corrected his judgement and took a u-turn. Pant was running back to catch the ball, and just as he was about to dive to reach, he slipped. But the jubilant wicketkeeper kept his eye on the ball and hung on to the ball.
