As the first game of the World, T20 starts off, hosts India has already taken the Kiwis under pressure. New Zealand did not make the match against the Indian bowling with the bat for the first few overs. There was attacking cricket seen from the Indians.
The ball is turning a bit which is a good sign as the New Zealand spin department will get more in the second phase but at the moment, they need to concentrate on their batting. New Zealand has lost three wickets in a quick time.
Opener Martin Guptill showed his intentions early hitting Ashwin for a straight six on the maiden ball of the match. It was a flighted ball and Guptill went through the line of it and dispatched it straight and long. But then Dharmasena gave him out on the next ball.
It was a wrong call from Dharmasena. Munro came in and followed the same attacking procedure. He hit a reverse sweep six but then hit Nehra straight into the hands of Pandya and that was the end of him.
Williamson could not hold on to the pressure and he stepped out of the crease to get a power it, Raina darted the ball in and Dhoni did the rest for his bowler.
