Shikhar Dhawan’s wayward throw leaves Hardik Pandya furious

During the 3rd ODI between New Zealand and India at the Bay Oval, India’s comeback man Hardik Pandya was not at all impressed by the fielding effort of his teammate Shikhar Dhawan.

The incident occurred in the 14th over of the match when Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson were batting in the middle after Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami sent back the Kiwi openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro respectively.

Pandya bowled a short of length delivery to Taylor, who somehow managed to pull it in the mid-wicket region. Dhawan, who was placed in the short mid-wicket region, quickly collected the ball but his wayward throw allowed Taylor and Williamson to take an extra run.

The two batsmen initially took a single and were not ready for the second run until Dhawan’s throw went towards square leg with no one around.

Rohit Sharma attempted to stop the ball but failed to as it was Kedar Jadhav, who eventually collected the ball and threw it back to the wicket-keeper, Dinesh Karthik.

Frustrated with Dhawan’s effort, Pandya uttered “Come on yaar” to let his disappointment known.
