Harshal Patel

Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first. India made a forced change as Mohammed Siraj injured his finger and was replaced by Harshal Patel, who is making his international debut. On the other hand, New Zealand made three changes as they left out Lockie Ferguson, Rachin Ravindra and Todd Astle for Adam Milne, James Neesham and Ish Sodhi.

Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell walked out to open the innings. Guptill smashed Bhuvneshwar Kumar for successive fours on the first two balls of the match. He was looking in ominous touch and was hitting boundaries for fun before Deepak Chahar outfoxed him with a bouncer. He scored 31 runs in 15 balls.

Mark Chapman got out to Axar Patel after scoring 21 runs and out walked Glenn Phillips. He was batting well in the middle and had hit two sixes before going into the death overs. Harshal Patel was given the ball to bowl the 17th over and Phillips smashed a six on the first ball.

However, Harshal kept his calm and dismissed Phillips on the third ball of the over with a slower one. Phillips scored 34 runs in 21 balls, where he hit one four and three sixes.
