However, the falling of the wicket did not stop over as Virat Kohli too walked out as the pressure went on building. In the end, India were not even close to run a ball in their first innings of the T20 game against New Zealand.

Even their bowling unit had no gas in their arsenal, which promoted a comfortable victory for the Kiwis. Moreover, New Zealand won the game by eight wickets and 33 balls remaining. The Kiwis after this win have virtually confirmed their place in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup.
