The first T20I between India and New Zealand saw the Kiwis come out on top with a convincing 21-run victory. India won the toss and elected to bowl first, inviting New Zealand to set up a target. The Kiwis showcased good batting at the JSCA stadium and set up a target of 176/6 for India.
In the second innings, India struggled to chase down the target set by New Zealand. Despite a strong performance from Suryakumar Yadav, who made 47 off 34 with 6 fours and 2 sixes, and Washington Sundar, who smashed a brilliant half-century, India could only manage 155/9 at the end of their 20 overs. Now, we will take a look at the 3 records that were broken during the first T20I match.
3. Most expensive 20th over bowled by an Indian in a T20I game:
Arshdeep Singh was the victim of a vicious assault by Daryl Mitchell in the death overs. The young Indian left-arm pacer assisted him by delivering a no-ball off the first ball of the 20th over, which also went for a six.
Mitchell made things worse for the bowler by smashing a six off a free hit and accumulating 13 runs from a single delivery. He went on to score 27 runs off the over as Arshdeep finished with disappointing match figures of 4-0-51-1.
