India vs New Zealand Highlights: New Zealand somehow managed to get back into the game, with captain Tim Southee picking two quick wickets in his final over, but it was all too late for the visitors. Rishabh Pant hit two consecutive sixes to seal the deal for India. Earlier in the evening, the openers, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, stitched a 117-run stand with both scoring their half-centuries to keep India on track in the chase of 154 after the bowlers, especially the spinners, kept things tight in the middle overs to restrict New Zealand to 153/6. India have now won the series 2-0 with a final tie yet to go. But this new-look India have gotten off to an impressive start already.

    Pant finishes it off in style

    This is the fourth time Rahul and Rohit have stitched a century stand for India as openers, which is the joint-most in T20Is, equally the record by Dhawan-Rohit and Pakistan's Babar Azam-Mohammad Rizwan.

    India 105/0 in 12 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 10:10 PM IST

    50 for KL Rahul

    His fourth fifty in last five T20I innings and 16th overall. And he gets to the mark with a six smashed over deep extra cover against Adam Milne. He has been in sublime form and India are on the way for a series victory in Ranchi. 

     

  • Nov 19, 2021 10:05 PM IST

    That over!

    23 balls since India struck a boundary and the pressure was mounting on the opening pair, before Rohit broke the shackles to take the risk, as he smashed Santner for two sixes in the 10th over - one over cow corner and the other, a 85m six over deep mid-wicket. He looked for another, but the Rohit mistimed and sliced it instead before Boult dropped it at long-on.

    India 79/0 in 10 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 10:00 PM IST

    Milestone alert!

    KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma have become the seventh opening pair to amass 1000 runs between themselves in T20Is and second from India after the pair of Dhawan and Rohit, who are the top run-getters with their tally of 1743 runs in 52 innings. The Rahul-Rohit pair have scored at a quicker rate, reaching the feat in just 19 innings, at an average of 55.

  • Nov 19, 2021 09:41 PM IST

  • Nov 19, 2021 09:31 PM IST

    Steady start from the openers

    Rahul kicked off the chase in a similar manner to that of Guptill, outside edge flying off to the boundary for a four. He then took on Boult to hit two boundaries and then flicked one over mid-wicket for a four against Adam Milne. Rohit then joined him with a six smashed over deep mid-wicket fence. 

    India 32/0 in 4 overs

    Harshal on his 2/25 on debut

    “It's a great feeling playing for the country. I love the game and the ultimate goal for any player is to play for the country, it's an honour, it's a privilege and I'm not going to take it for granted. Rahul (Dravid) sir has always told me that once you are done with the preparations, you gotta go out there and enjoy the game. After 9-10 years of domestic cricket and on the back of a good IPL I've reached here, so it's a satisfying moment for me.”

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:58 PM IST

    New Zealand 153/6 in 20 overs

    64 runs were scored in the powerplay and New Zealand showed their intentions were clear. 170-180 seemed to be their target. But the spinners pulled things back brilliantly before Harshal Patel picked two wickets on his debut to restrict New Zealand to 153 for six.

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:47 PM IST

    Outside edge with the new bat!

    Neesham had to get his bat changed after a piece of wood broke while attempting a shot in the fifth delivery off the 18th over. However, Neesham nicked off the final ball as Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked his first wicket. New Zealand went 6 down

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:38 PM IST

    Second wicket for Harshal

    A six, no ball, beaten off the free-hit delivery and then the slower ball did the magic again as Harshal Patel dismissed Glenn Phillips. New Zealand lost their fifth wicket

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:28 PM IST

    R Ashwin gets his first

    It was a flatter delivery from Ashwin and Seifert reverse swept it straight to the fielder at third man as New Zealand lost their fourth wicket.

    New Zealand 125/4 in 15.1 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:25 PM IST

    India own the middle overs

    India have been sensational today in the middle overs, conceding 61 runs between overs 7 and 15, which comprised five boundaries and 18 dots balls. The spinners have been superb in these overs.

    Axar: 21 runs in three overs - 4 dots, 2 boundaries

    Ashwin: 8 runs in two overs - 5 dots, zero boundaries

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:05 PM IST

    Wicket on his debut

    It's the slower delivery, that same weapon that made him the highest wicket-taker in IPL 2021, that worked for Harshal Patel as Daryl Mitchell holed ity out to Suryakymar Yadav in long-on. New Zealand have now gone three down for 90 in 11.2 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 08:00 PM IST

    Opportunity dropped by Venkatesh Iyer!

    A low full toss from Axar was smashed straight by Glenn Phillips to Iyer at long-off, but he came at it quickly and the ball popped out his hands, juggled twice before dropping it.

    New Zealand 89/2 in 11 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:56 PM IST

    Drinks break

    The spinners have played their part in slowing things down after an explosive powerplay from New Zealand. Axar and Ashwin have conceded 15 runs between themselves in the three overs after powerplay, picking one wicket. The other over belonged to debutant Harshal Patel, who conceded five runs only. Axar begins again after the break.

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:50 PM IST

    Axar gets Chapman

    Axar dished out a flighted delivery and pitched it up as Chapman launched it straight to the fielder in the deep. Axar has now picked his first T20I wicket since 2017.

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:35 PM IST

    End of powerplay

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:27 PM IST

    A sigh of relief for India!

    Guptill welcomed back both the pacers with a six down the ground. He charged down the ground to taker the fuller one from Bhuvneshwar to smash a 84m six. In the fifth over, he shimmied down again to launch Deepak Chahar's delivery over long-on for a maximum to move to 31 off 15. But it is Chahar who had the last laugh, once again, dismissing Guptill.

    New Zealand 48/1 in 4.2 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:15 PM IST

    What a start from New Zealand!

    Guptill was lucky to get off the mark with a boundary off the outside edge in the first delivery oof the game, but the boundary in the next ball and the final ball made intentions clear. Bhuvneshwar conceded 14 runs in the opening over, which is the most by any Indian bowler in the over in T20Is. Daryl Mitchell then joined the party, scoring back-to-back boundaries against Deepak Chahar in the second over.

    New Zealand 24/0 in 2 overs

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:07 PM IST

    GUPTILL SURPASSES KOHLI

    With the boundary against Bhuvneshwar, over mid-off, Guptill became the highest run-getter in T20Is, surpassing India's Virat Kohli.

  • Nov 19, 2021 07:01 PM IST

    The game begins!

    The umpires and players make their way to the middle. Martin Guptill will face the first ball, hoping to break Virat Kohli's record. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to begin the proceedings for India.

    Update on Siraj

    "MD Siraj got a web split on his left hand while fielding on his own bowling in the 1st T20I in Jaipur. The BCCI medical team is closely monitoring his progress."- tweeted BCCI

  • Nov 19, 2021 06:37 PM IST

    Captains speak…

    Tim Southee: We would have bowled first, taking the dew into consideration. It's always about trying to improve. We have to focus on the positives. We'll have to deal with the dew, and find a way to put up a good performance. We have three changes.

    Rohit Sharma: We are going to field first. We have seen it here, it's a nice option to go with. Considering the dew factor, it's good to chase in Ranchi. It was a good effort from the boys. It was a good learning for them as they finished the game, it was a good positive to have from that game. The game is such that you need some energy and experience. We have youngsters who want to express themselves, it's a good setup, it's important moving forward. We have one change, Harshal comes in for Siraj.

    TOSS TIME

    Indian captain Rohit Sharma wins the toss and opts to bowl first against New Zealand in Ranchi

  • Nov 19, 2021 06:29 PM IST

    Pitch report by Deep Dasgupta

    "The average score at this venue is 155, it's a big ground with big dimensions. There's very little grass on the wicket, it'll be a good pitch for spinners and bowlers who can bowl cutters. The team bowling first might extract some purchase as compared to the team bowling second. Looks a tacky wicket."

  • Nov 19, 2021 06:26 PM IST

    Chasing again?

    In the last 10 games in Ranchi, teams batting second have won six matches. However, former all-rounder Irfan Pathan, admitted on air that the dew has already arrived.

  • Nov 19, 2021 06:20 PM IST

    Another debutant!

    Harshal Patel has been handed his debut cap by former pacer Ajit Agarkar ahead of the second T20I in Ranchi

     

  • Nov 19, 2021 05:51 PM IST

    Any changes for New Zealand?

    Todd Astle conceded 34 runs in the first T20I without picking a wicket. So New Zealand might want to go back to Ish Sodhi for the second game.

  • Nov 19, 2021 05:35 PM IST

    Are India likely to make any changes?

    Siraj suffered an injury in his final over and his participation is yet to be confirmed. So India might go with either IPL 2021's purple cap winner Harshal Patel, or the second-highest wicket-taker of the tournament, Avesh Khan.

  • Nov 19, 2021 05:22 PM IST

    A world record awaits Martin Guptill

    The New Zealand opener needs just 11 runs to surpass India's Virat Kohli's tally of 3227 runs to become the leading run-getter in T20I cricket. Guptill presently stands second with 3217 runs in 110 matches. Meanwhile, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma stands third on the list with 3086 runs in 117 matches, thereby standing 142 runs short of Kohli's tally

  • Nov 19, 2021 05:03 PM IST
