Indian cricket team thrashes New Zealand by six runs in the eight overs match in third and final game of T20I tournament on Tuesday at the Sports Hub.
The final match started three hours later due to rain. It was a hard-hitting match.
New Zealand player Kane Williamson was fortunate with the turn of the coin for a third instance in a line up and India made 67 runs for five wickets. On the other hand, New Zealand clinched 61 for six wickets in the limited overs.
Hassled from the rising run-rate, New Zealand players give up as the Indians showcased great performance in the concluding two overs.
Since the Kiwis went through the overs hurriedly, batsman Manish Pandey appeared out as the top-scorer (17) of the final match whereas Hardik Pandya clinched 14 runs.
“In the second innings, they didn’t give too many boundary balls,” Kohli stated. “We wanted our best bowlers to get done early and leave so many runs in the end they would be left with a lot. They executed the plans well.” He added.
The climate, as predictable, had a enormous effect on the match as the game gets late by three hours. It stated at 7 p.m.
