Set the task of scoring 213 to win the T20 match against New Zealand, the visitors were able to score only 208 in the stipulated 20 overs. India’s final score read 208/6.
With the collapse of the batsmen in quick succession this does not come as much of a surprise. The tail enders batted valiantly and kept Indian hopes alive till the very end for which they must be lauded. With this win, New Zealand has broken the jinx and gone ahead to lead in the T 20 series 2-1.
