New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and Devon Conway ensured their team scaled the target of 111 runs in 14.3 overs in the Super 12 game vs India in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Dubai. Daryl Mitchell scored a brilliant knock of 49 runs off 35 balls after Jasprit Bumrah removed Martin Guptill early in their innings. Batting first, India failed to start well as New Zealand put on an inspired bowling performance. India were jolted early on with regular wickets as they finished the powerplay at 35/2. Ishan Kishan (4) was removed by Trent Boult, while KL Rahul (18) was dismissed by Tim Southee. Rohit Sharma (14) was sent back by Ish Sodhi. Soon, Sodhi got the prized scalp of skipper Virat Kohli for nine runs before Rishabh Pant followed suit. Hardik and Ravindra Jadeja tried to settle India’s nerves but failed to shift gears. Trent Boult finished with 3-20, Ish Sodhi 2-17, Tim Southee 1-26 and Adam Milne 1-30 while Martin Guptill took 3 catches. Earlier, Team India skipper Kohli said the side is making two changes to the team that had lost the last match by 10 wickets against Pakistan. Kishan and Shardul Thakur replaced Suryakumar Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the starting XI. Suryakumar had to be left out of the team due to a back spasm. (SCORECARD)
