During the Cricket World Cup 2023 match between India and New Zealand, a moment involving Virat Kohli became viral. Jasprit Bumrah, an Indian cricketer, missed an easy catch, causing frustration for Kohli. Bumrah was in position to catch the ball but couldn’t control it, allowing the batsman to score a boundary. This mistake followed an earlier error by Ravindra Jadeja.
India’s Remarkable Victory
Despite the fielding challenges, India managed to win the match against New Zealand by four wickets. Virat Kohli played a crucial role, scoring 95 runs off 105 balls. He partnered with Ravindra Jadeja, who scored 39 not out, contributing to a total of 78 runs for the sixth wicket. Captain Rohit Sharma also made a valuable contribution with 46 runs off 40 balls at the beginning of the innings.
