The New Zealand tour of India started on 18 November 2022. However, the first match of this 3-match series was washed off due to rain. The second match was played on Sunday, 20 November 2022, and India won. Hardik Pandya will captain the T20I Indian Team, and the goal of these T20s is to create a new strategy before the next T20 World Cup.
The match started with bad news because of the rain, and the toss got delayed. New Zealand has surrendered here. They were 130/2 with Conway and Phillips, but once that combination was destroyed, it was a procession. Siraj was the standout of the bowlers, while Arshdeep complemented him admirably, picking up 4 wickets each. Allen and Chapman were sent back inside the powerplay, while Conway and Phillips took their time but rallied New Zealand with an 86-run stand. Both batters reached their respective fifties but could not stay to the end.
New Zealand was bowled out after scoring 160 runs in 19.4 overs. Let’s see how India will chase the given run score.
The second inning was started with Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan at the crease, and Southee opened the attack. Pant hit the glorious four in the first ball of the second over. While in the last ball of the same over, Milne dismissed Ishan Khan with a back of a length.
Southee took back-to-back wickets of Pant and Shreyas in the 3rd over. Hardik and Suryakmar Yadav came to the crease and started their partnership with wonderful boundaries. After the powerplay, India scored a good run chase of 58 runs but with a loss of 3 wickets.
New Zealand got great success in the 7th over with the great bowling skill of Ish Sodhi. Surya Kumar Yadav was gone after scoring just 13 runs in 10 balls.
After that, the game was called off due to rain. The umpires have communicated the same to the skippers, and it’s a tie on DLS. India seals the series 1-0.
