Did Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli argue the IND vs NZ match? A video footage of them debating in between the overs is going viral.


Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were seen exchanging some intense notes in between the first innings of the IND vs NZ match. In the video footage, Rohit Sharma looks unconvinced by Virat Kohli’s suggestions. This incident was recorded in the 32nd over of the first innings.

The fifth match for India in the ODI World Cup 2023 was at HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala. The coin flipped on the side of India’s skipper Rohit Sharma, who decided to field first. Batting first, the New Zealand cricket team was below par for a few overs. New Zealand’s opener, Devon Conway, got out, scoring zero. Moreover, his opening partner, Will Young, had to return to the pavilion, scoring just 17 runs. However, New Zealand’s innings picked up after the arrival of Daryl Mitchell. Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell accelerated the scoreboard, adding 159 runs for the third wicket. With the assistance of the two, New Zealand set up a target of 274.

In reply, the India cricket team chased down the total in 48 overs. In the second innings, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill provided the Indian batting lineup the required start. Rohit Sharma scored 46 runs off 40 deliveries. However, after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal, there was an early fall of the wicket of Gill. Gill had scored 26 off 31 balls. Despite the fall of wickets, Virat Kohli was unstoppable. His 95 runs majorly contributed to India’s victory. In addition, Shreyas Iyer’s 33 off 29 and Ravindra Jadeja’s 39 off 44 were the cameos that accelerated the scoreboard. However, Virat Kohli unfortunately didn’t achieve his 49th century in ODI cricket history. Moreover, the chase master is one century away from equaling Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 centuries in ODI cricket.
