India scored 234 runs for 4 wickets in the victory of this match, young batsman Shubman Gill exploded with a century and stood by. Also, T20 captain Hardik Pandya also destroyed the opposing team’s players with 4 wickets. Kiwis, who came to the crease with a huge target, were limited to 66 runs. With this, India has won the three-match T20 series.
India, who won the toss first, chose to bat and started the team’s innings with Shubhaman Gill and Ishan Kishan. However, India lost its first wicket in the form of Ishan Kishan (1) in the second over at the very beginning of batting. After Shubman Gill burst into the crease along with Rahul Tripathi, India scored runs. Both of them added 80 runs in 42 balls for the second wicket. Tripathi scored 44 runs in just 22 balls with 4 fours and 3 sixes. Suryakumar Yadav, who came later, also flashed for a while and got out. Surya scored 24 runs off 13 balls. Captain Hardik Pandya, who came later, also reached the pavilion in the last over after scoring 30 runs in 17 balls. And Shubhaman Gill scored 126 runs off 63 balls and remained unbeaten. As a result, India managed to score 234 runs for the loss of 4 wickets.
However, it must be said that the Kiwis team, who came to the crease with a huge target, played poorly from the beginning. On behalf of New Zealand, except Daryl Mitchell (35) and Mitchell Santner (13), they could not reach the double figure score. In this sequence, the Indian T20 captain took 4 wickets. Also Arshadeep Singh, Umran Malik and Shivam Mavi took 2 wickets each. As a result, the Kiwis team was limited to 66 runs and lost by 166 runs.
