So finally, here begins the big cricket World T20 tournament of the year 2k16, which is being hosted by India this time and surely, we are gonna witness some outstanding encounters in this magnificent competition. Here begins the first Super 10 match between India and New Zealand. After the first round, now it is time to see which teams are gonna make it through to the finals. Let’s see what happened in this big match! Scroll down.
Now it all began with New Zealand winning the toss and deciding to bat first. Well, their batting order didn’t worked well but the runs were coming up to give hope to the New Zealand team to at least score something to defend. Well, it hasn’t been quiet easier as expected. Corey Anderson played when he come on to the crease, because the Indian bowling side was extremely looking tougher; as they collapsed the top order of New Zealand – they were BOOSTED! But still going through the hardship, New Zealand scored 126 runs.
The target seemed difficult to defend, but also it wasn’t easier to achieve it. Credit goes to the bowlers off Indian cricket team who worked really hard to restrict the batsmen to reach any big target. Let’s see how it goes with Indian batting-lineup.
In the 2nd innings, Indian openers were thrashed by the New Zealand bowling side. It was just Virat Kohli who was looking in form, but even he didn’t stayed any longer. And then, it was MS Dhoni who is been having a great record of his batting skills as a captain, but even he failed to take the match to the victory. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi were terrific with their bowling spells to stop India in middle of nowhere and make it purely difficult for them to achieve the target. Bowlers defended well and collapsed the whole batting lineup of India. It is been too bad for India as they were all-out on just 79, which is happened to them for the 2nd time. New Zealand took victory by 47 runs. WOW! It is quiet a big margin for New Zealand to take such a victory on the home-ground of India; against India.
Well, it turns out to be too bad for India to lose like this because nobody was expecting that and New Zealand showed up their thrilling bowling performance. Absolutely! Congratulations to New Zealand!
