  • New Zealand seek a reversal of fortunes

New Zealand opener Tim Seifert scored 84 off 43 balls as the hosts thumped India by 80 runs on Wednesday in the first Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) to hand the visitors their biggest-ever loss in the shortest format of the game. With the crack opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan departing within the Powerplay, the chase became a hard one and India were all out for 139 in 19.2 overs. However, the batting line-up most definitely missed out on the stability offered by regular skipper Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the three T20 matches after also having been rested for both the final two ODIs.

Tim Southee (3-17) was the pick of the New Zealand bowlers while Lockie Ferguson (2-22) took the key wicket of Shikhar Dhawan (29), just as the India opener was beginning to fire. Daryll bowled really well and played a good cameo down the order.

Earlier, Seifert, whose previous best score in T20 Internationals happens to be 14, was promoted to open alongside Colin Munro and they added 86 runs in only 8.2 overs in a whirlwind start.

Seifert blazed his way to a maiden T20 half century from only 30 balls with five fours and three sixes. The next shot was a four as he stood and hammered past the bowler.
