A Commentator Hilariously Walked Out Of The India-New Zealand Match After Losing A Bet On Air

"I will walk out of the commentary box, and take the first flight to New Zealand if Jadhav takes a wicket today," said Scott Styris. Kedar Jadhav took three wickets.

During the match, while New Zealand batted, and at a time when India need to take wickets, Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni made the surprising move of sending batsman Kedar Jadhav to bowl.

Ex-New Zealand cricketer Scott Styris, who was in the commentary box alongside Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri, found it to be an odd move. He said on air, "I will walk out of the commentary box, and take the first flight to New Zealand if Jadhav takes a wicket today".
