The T20I opener was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain in Wellington. On the other hand, the second game turned out to be a one-sided fixture as Indians won the game by 65 runs at Bay Oval.
With that win, India took a 1-0 lead in the series. Talking about the series decider, the match ended in a tie as rain disrupted the passage of play in Napier.
At that time, the game was evenly poised as India’s score was level on par score as per DLS method. As a result, the game ended in a tie, meaning that India won the series.
Meanwhile, India are gearing up for the ODI series challenge. India will play three ODIs against New Zealand. Currently, the Men in Blue are third on the ICC Men’s Team Rankings.
If they manage to win all three games of the series, then they would go on top of the rankings. New Zealand and England are placed first and second on the rankings respectively.
