India vs New Zealand T20 highlights: Kiwis have set the stage for a stiff run chase by India putting up 220 runs on the board batting first. New Zealand put up this competitive total for Rohit Sharma’s boys courtesy Tim Seifert’s 84 runs off 43 deliveries. The opener hit 7 fours and 6 sixes in his blistering innings. He was well supported by Collin Munro and skipper Kane Williamson, with contributed with 34 runs each.
Fresh from its 4-1 ODI series win, Men In Blue are looking to win the T20 series as well. Visitors are bolstered by the return of veteran MS Dhoni who was out of action in the last two ODIs due to injury. However, regular skipper Virat Kohli is also out of action today as he is taking well-earned rest. In his absence, Rohit Sharma is leading the side.
In what can also be considered as an experiment before the upcoming World Cup, other wicketkeepers Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant are also playing today’s match as a specialist batsman. The mega event will be held in England later this year between May-July. India’s batting unit looks strong on paper and will need to fire on all cylinders against a strong bowling attack of New Zealand.
