After opting to bat, New Zealand got off to a decent start courtesy of Martin Guptill but Munro struggled from the other end. Once Guptill departed all the Kiwi batters had a hard time. Only two batsmen managed to have a strike rate of over 110. Williamson, de Grandhomme and Taylor all struggled and could never get going. It looked like 130 will be difficult to get but Seifert’s 33 not out off 26 in the end managed to take them over 130 and has given New Zealand something to bowl at on this slow-looking surface.
What a brilliant performance from the Indian bowlers. On the same ground and same pitch where the conceded over 200 in the first T20I, they have managed to restrict the hosts for an under-par total of 132!

No he can’t! Just a single off the last ball. Bumrah dishes out another low full toss on middle, Seifert does well to whip it towards long on but only for a run. 22/1 in this spell for Jasprit Bumrah. NEW ZEALAND FINISH WITH 132.
