Batting first, New Zealand scored 196 for 2 riding on Colin Munro's unbeaten 109 off 58 balls. The wicket was tailor-made for batting and newcomer Mohd Siraj, who made his global debut replacing Ashish Nehra, provided the fodder to Martin Guptill and Munro, who went berserk. This is the second T20I between the two teams.

India bid goodbye to their veteran pacer Ashish Nehra in the last match, gifting him a memorable victory. Before that New Zealand had beaten India in five successive T20s. "But we were left with a very hard task", he said. MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli formed a steady partnership but the boundaries dried up. "The ball got scuffed up", he added.

Trent Boult on fire! India drafted in the debutant Mohammad Siraj in the place of Ashish Nehra who retired from global cricket after the previous game.

Fast bowler Mohammed Siraj handed his maiden global cap by coach Ravi Shastri. Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum leads the list with 2140 runs.

Chahal was surprisingly willing to give the ball a lot of air on a flat pitch and got the treatment his deliveries deserved while Patel was blown away by Munro's extraordinary power. It poured fours and sixes nearly at will and soon it was not a question of how to get rid of them, but how to stop the flow of runs as no bowler was making any impact.

Overall, 75 runs were collected from the seven overs bowled between the pair, in stark contrast to the Kiwi spinners who bowled with much more control and potency.
