....Presentation Time...
Earlier in the day, New Zealand restricted India to their lowest first-innings total ever in the T20 World Cup, courtesy of some exceptional bowling performance from their bowlers. The Kiwis had only 111 runs to chase and they did that with 33 balls to spare. India now have their task cut out as they have to win their remaining three games comprehensively and also hope that few of the results go their way in order to stay in the race for semi-final.
Nothing much to say about the Indian bowlers as they had only 111 runs to play with and they did not manage to put any sort of pressure on the Kiwi batters, apart from Jasprit Bumrah who bent his back and managed to pick up a couple of wickets. New Zealand's openers came out with intent and the other bowlers had no answers to it.
Well, New Zealand had only 111 runs to chase and they did that with utmost ease. Their openers, Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell started well but just as the former was looking to tee off he perished. Daryl Mitchell though carried on his merry way and he found boundaries at will in the middle. He fell short of his fifty by only a run but the damage had already been done. Kane Williamson, coming in at number 3,  just knocked it 'round the corner and ensured that there aren't anymore hiccups. All in all, they made a mockery of India's total and got those crucial two points.
This has been a comprehensive win for New Zealand and they keep their winning streak against India at the ICC events intact. They have been quite clinical with both bat and ball in such a crucial game and things are going from bad to worse for India in this tournament as they lose two in a row now.
