A stunning battle of cricket is expected on Wednesday as India will go one-on-one against New Zealand in the final T20 International of the three-match series. The high-profile game of cricket is scheduled to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on February 01, Wednesday.
New Zealand kick-started the three-match series with a bang. They smacked a victory by 21 runs owing to terrific performances both with the bat and ball. On the back of the fifties by Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell, the Blackcaps posted a score of 176 runs in their allotted 20 overs. In response, the Men in Blue ended up with only 155 runs. Washington Sundar made good efforts, but he did not receive enough support.
Coming to play on Sunday in the second T20 Internationals, the visitors failed to continue the momentum. Batting first, they collapsed at a score of 99 runs. No batter scored anything above 20 runs. Arshdeep Singh was the main bowler for India with two wickets under his belt at an economy rate of 3.5. Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Deepak Hooda, Kuldeep Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal picked one each.
Scoring 100 runs in the second innings should have been a cakewalk for the Indian team. However, the New Zealand bowlers also spilled their magic on a tricky pitch and the match went down to the wire. It was Suryakumar Yadav who shined for India in the match with his pressure knock of not out 26 runs off 31 balls. The batter helped India win in 19.5 overs and stay alive in the series.
