The third game of the T20 International between hosting India and guests from New Zealand finished just like the two previous matches. However, this time, the Men in Blue were batting first and made it almost impossible for the away team to chase them.
The start of the game showed how it would be played, and the opening batters of the host team showed an approximate run rate at the level of 10 in the first overs. After a minor failure in the middle of the game, India stabilized their batting and reached 184 runs with seven lost wickets at the end of the innings. Rohit Sharma reached a half-century all in all.

New Zealand couldn’t reach such a result as the only man who was trying to do something was Martin Guptill. However, his half-century is worth nothing when other teammates cannot score even twenty. The Kiwis lost the last wicket in the 17th over, having only 111 runs at the scorecard.
The next game in the series between India and New Zealand will be played in the Test format, which will start on November 25. Want to know more about cricket and don’t miss the important news? Subscribe to cricket14.in and receive the latest updates to your email.
