New Zealand come right as India crash to worst T20 defeat

Star Sports Live Streaming India vs New Zealand First T20I

Earlier, wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert took the Indian bowling apart blasting 84 off 43 balls as New Zealand posted a commanding 219 for six. India were bowled out for 139 in 19.2 overs.

Wickets fell at regular intervals although M.S. Dhoni top-scored with 39 from 31 balls and was out two balls before the end. It was only the eighth time India has been bowled out in a T20 worldwide.

But a searing Lockie Ferguson yorker to get rid of Shikhar Dhawan for a brisk 29 and put the visitors back on their heels. They kept the batsmen under tight check and for some like World Cup aspirant Rishabh Pant, it was a frustrating little stay in the middle and he simply couldn't get going.

Krunal Pandya felt that India's defeat was "a combination of both poor bowling and some great batting by the Black Caps". Daryll bowled really well and played a good cameo down the order.

But on a flat pitch, Seifert and Colin Munro tore into India's opening bowlers with a 86-run opening stand in 8.2 overs, spurring on the least economical figures for Bhuvneshwar Kumar in T20Is: 1 for 47.

Seifert blazed his way to a maiden T20 half century from only 30 balls with five fours and three sixes. During India's first T20 global vs New Zealand at Wellington, Dinesh Karthik took a well-controlled catch at the boundary, which went on to become the highlight of the day.

There were shades of McCullum to some of Seifert's shots on Wednesday, particularly in the gallops down the track to the fast bowlers and the fast-hands slaps through cover point. They may even further consolidate their winning habit as they now take on beleaguered New Zealand in T20 Internationals.

When Hardik drifted on the leg stump, he was flicked behind the square and when he pitched wide outside off-stump, he was lofted over the cover point region.

After making his T20 debut previous year, Seifert really announced himself on the worldwide stage last night when he smashed 84 runs off 43 balls as the opener.
