The Indian team didn’t put up a top-notch performance in the first T20I in Ranchi and failed to win the game. The bowling, other than a few decent performances, went for a lot of runs. Whereas the batters could quickly adapt to spinning conditions and failed to stay in the middle. Suryakumar Yadav was once again the top performer with the bat while others fell apart like nine pins.
On the other hand, New Zealand managed to stitch up a near-perfect performance in each department to take a 1-0 series lead. The Black Caps got off to a fiery start as Finn Allen and Devon Conway maximised the powerplay. Then despite a few hiccups, Kiwis got back on track and pulled off a brilliant finish to post an above-par total. Laterwith the ball, New Zealand spinners spun incredible webs to restrict Indian batters from breaking free and scoring freely.
