Twitter Reactions: New Zealand win a thriller to clinch the T20I series 2-1 over India




New Zealand beat India

For the second time in the series, India were unable to chase down a 200-plus total posted by New Zealand.

India’s promising start to the chase was marred by a late collapse with batsmen buckling under the pressure of a climbing required rate as they eventually fell short of the mammoth 213-run target by just four runs, ensuring New Zealand clinched the series 2-1.

As per the tale in the first T20I in Wellington, New Zealand batted first and posted 212, thanks to the solid opening stand between Colin Munro and Tim Seifert and a late flourish from Colin de Grandhomme.

India’s chase was punctured by a flurry of wickets in the second half of the innings, some disciplined bowling from the hosts and most importantly, their near flawless performance on the field which was a stark contrast to India. Despite a stunning assault from Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya towards the end that saw the two batsmen add 63 off 28 balls, New Zealand avoided a scare to win a last-over thriller.
