New Zealand were derailed even before their massive 235-run chase took flight. Their top order succumbed against the new ball, with Hardik Pandya and Arshdeep Singh picking a brace each and leaving the visitors reeling at 9 for 4 within 3 overs. A couple of identical reflex catches at slips by Suryakumar helped matters for India, but New Zealand’s pain point was dealing with the swing. The visitors were eventually bundled out for 66 in only 12.1 overs, their third-lowest score in T20Is.
