Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

So India are still searching for their first T20I win in New Zealand. With New Zealand 1-0 up in the three-match series, the teams will now face each other in Auckland on Friday. For now, that’s all from our side. See you soon.

“Fantastic performance all around,” Williamson says. “One of the complete performances you search for. Seifert was excellent. The bowling performance was outstanding. We had runs on the board but bowling and fielding were outstanding. [On the women’s game] It was a great game. Throughout the series the two teams have followed a similar trend. Hopefully, they can do that in the next game and we can follow it up.”

“We were outplayed in all three departments actually,” Rohit says. “We always knew 200 is not going to be an easy chase. We kept losing wickets, that kept throwing us out of the game. We have chased 200-run targets in the past. But when you don’t have a good partnership while chasing big totals, it’s always difficult. Us as a team, we have chased down the targets, that’s why we were playing with eight batsman. We needed that one big partnership which we failed to do.”

“It was a great way to start the series,” Seifert says. [On opening the innings]: “We decided to see off a couple of overs. [Then it was] just play the game. I have been picked for some reason and I just backed myself.”

Tim Seifert is the Man of the Match.

11.15pm A complete performance by New Zealand to hand India their biggest defeat by run-margin. Colin Munro and Tim Seifert started with a blazing 86-run start in 8.2 overs. Krunal Pandya got Munro but Seifert kept hurting India and went on to score a 43-ball 84. Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor and Scott Kuggeleijn played nice cameos to take the side to 219 for 6. India lost Rohit Sharma early in the chase. Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar took them past 50 but then the wickets fell in a heap as the visitors slipped from 51 for 1 to 77 for 6. Tim Southee was excellent, picking up 3 for 17 from his four overs, while Lockie Ferguson, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi picked up two wickets each.
