India and New Zealand are locking horns in a Super 12 round match of the T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai. Both teams lost their first game against Pakistan and are now playing in a must-win match.

Trent Boult was right on the money with his bowling

Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bowl first. New Zealand brought Adam Milne in the playing XI and left Tim Seifert out for this game. On the other hand, India left Suryakumar Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar out while Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur replaced them in the playing XI.

Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul came out to bat while Trent Boult had the new ball in his hand to trouble the Indian openers like Shaheen Shah Afridi did the other night. Both openers played out Boult’s first over without taking any risk. However, Ishan Kishan went for a full-blooded heave on the second last ball of Boult’s second over and ended up giving a catch to Daryl Mitchell.

Rohit Sharma walked out at number 3 and played some shots before getting out to Ishan Sodhi. Tim Southee removed KL Rahul as India were in deep trouble. Virat Kohli went for a slog-sweep against Sodhi and hold out at long-on and India were reeling at 48/4.

Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant were battling in the middle to save India’s blushes but ended up being too defensive and couldn’t score a single boundary. Adam Milne disturbed Rishabh Pant’s stumps when he was going for a slog. Hardik Pandya got out to Boult for a 24-ball 23-run knock.

Ravindra Jadeja tried hard to towards the end but things had slipped too far by then. He scored 26 runs in 19 balls, which featured two fours and one sixes. India ended up scoring 110/7 in 20 overs.

Boult picked three wickets for 20 runs while Ish Sodhi grabbed two wickets for 17 runs. Meanwhile, Mitchell Santner conceded just 15 runs in his four overs.
