In the third T20I against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton, the Rohit Sharma led team won the toss and elected to field first. Right from the start, the Indian bowlers had a bad day at the office as the Kiwi openers battered the visitors black and blue. Colin Munro and Tim Seifert gave a flying start to the team and stitched 80 runs for the team. But it was Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya who gave away the most number of runs in the game. As a result, they were roasted on Twitter mercilessly. MS Dhoni’s Brilliant Stumping Sends Tim Seifert Packing During IND vs NZ, 3rd T20I 2019 (Watch Video).
Hardik Pandya who bowled four overs gave away 44 runs and had an average of 11. Krunal conceded 54 runs from four overs. The Pandya brothers jointly gave away 98 runs from 48 balls and this helped the Kiwis reach a total of 212 runs. This surely did not go down well with the netizens who angrily posted tweets about the duo and lashed out the Pandya brothers for their performance. Check out a few tweets below.

Talking about the match, India lost an early wicket in form of Shikhar Dhawan on the score of five from four balls. As of now, we have Rohit Sharma and Vijay Shankar who have held the fort for India and are batting well.
