India remain win-less in T20 internationals against New Zealand, having lost five in five. And who would have seen this coming when New Zealand had been kept to 126 after choosing to bat?
As it turned out, Kane Williamson read this pitch perfectly. He had the guts to leave out Boult, Southee and McClenaghan on this pitch and play Sodhi, Nathan McCullum and Mitchell Santner.
Hats off to the New Zealand management. Sodhi, Santner and McCullum have beaten India at their own game and a humbling defeat it is.
India bowled out at only 79 runs, second lowest total the team made in a World T20. Santner took 4 wickets giving only 11 runs and Sodhi took 3 wickets to beat the World T20 favourites.
