VIDEO: Colin Munro starts to walk after wind dislodged bails in Wellington
In the history of the game of cricket, we have witnessed a lot of incidents where the players showed their dishonesty on the cricket field. But, the left-handed opener from New Zealand, Colin Munro surprised everyone during the first T20I of the series between India and New Zealand.
The incident has happened during the fourth over of New Zealand’s innings when Colin Munro was on strike and Khaleel Ahmed with the ball. While Munro was batting on 28 off 12, Khaleel Ahmed ran to bowl his 3rd ball of the over. But, the umpire stopped the bowler and the batsman saw the bails which got dislodged.
Munro thought that he got hit wicket and started to walk back towards the pavilion. But, the umpires asked him to come again as the bails were moved by the wind. He then picked up the bails and put in order again.

Coming to the match, batting first, New Zealand posted a huge target of 220 on the board. While Munro dismissed for 34, the wicket-keeper batsman, Tim Seifert played a magnificent knock of 84 off just 43 deliveries.
Chasing a massive total of 219, the Indian team lost their openers cheaply. The visitors could score just 139 runs in 19.2 overs with MS Dhoni scoring the highest score for the team.
