What a Great Win! Rohit earned the tag of best T20I cricketer by becoming the highest run-getter while Shikhar continued his great form along with Rishab Pant’s Swashbuckling Knock with Ms.Dhoni on the other end. But before all this happened Krunal Pandya set the tone by taking a 3-fer along with Khaleel taking 2 apiece & showing his skills. Whereas BlackCaps blew it completely after winning the toss by choosing to bat despite good swinging conditions, though Daryl Mitchell’s dismissal raised some eye-brows on DRS but it was all-over for New Zealand after the 1st innings. Keeping in mind that the series is levelled 1-1, the decider at Seddon Park will be huge deal for both the teams.
