India vs New Zealand First T20I Highlights: Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten on 58 as India defeated Kiwis by 6 wickets in the first T20I of the five-match series on Friday. Iyer built on K L Rahul’s (56 off 27 balls) blazing start and Virat Kohli’s useful 45 off 32 balls as India made short work of a 204-run target, knocking it off with an over to spare.
New Zealand had posted a challenging total of 203 for five from their allotted 20 overs. Colin Munro was the top-scorer for the hosts with a knock of 59 off 42 deliveries while Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor also struck the fifties.
Chasing 204 for the win, opening batsman KL Rahul and India captain Virat Kohli put on 99 runs for the second wicket to help the visitors stay ahead of the asking rate.
Rahul and Kohli then took charge of the innings with an 80-run partnership coming off only 47 balls. The duo launched a good array of strokes with seven fours and four sixes between them as New Zealand struggled to contain the runs.
India crossed 100 in the ninth over thanks to their whirlwind partnership, albeit both had chances. Rahul survived a mix-up as New Zealand failed to hit the stumps twice, and then Ish Sodhi dropped a sitter off Kohli.
Shreyas Iyer said that We had lost quick wickets, so we had to build partnerships. We always knew we can score runs because this is a small ground. Looking forward to similar support in the remaining games as well.
