That is all from this game then. India's wait for a T20I win in New Zealand continues - played 3, lost 3. They get another opportunity, come Eden Park, on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 7 pm local (0600 GMT). A must-win for India, to keep the series alive. Do join us. Won't you? ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson is happy with his side's all-round display. Now, wants to come back after a day's break and do well in the second T20I. Praises the young Seifert and Munro for building a solid opening stand. Adds that the bowling performance was outstanding, along with the fielding, though the good score on the board was a cushion. Feels special for Daryl Mitchell who bowled extremely well in spite of being on debut. Cheekily says that it was an all-round performance which does not come every day.
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma admits that India were outplayed. Admits the chase was never going to be easy and regular wickets made it tough. Says that they have chased down 200-plus targets in the past though. But laments the lack of partnerships in the cause. On the other side, he admires the Kiwis for batting well. On the decision at the toss in the second game, Rohit says that he will decide only after reaching the venue. As far as this game was concerned, Sharma says that it all depends on what the team comfortable is doing with and with 8 batsmen, chasing seemed the right idea.
No surprises. Indeed, it is TIM SEIFERT WHO HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Siefert says it is a great way to start the series and the boys are also very happy. Mentions they wanted to put the pressure on the Indians right from the start. Ends by saying that he played how he usually does and it came off well.
Earlier in the day, the Indian bowlers received a total hammering. Tim Seifert stole the show with a b breathtaking 84 from 54 balls and took the win out of India's sails. He looks the best candidate for the Man Of The Match. Stay tuned for the presentation...
Chasing 220, 2 out of 10 times see the chasing side win. India fell in the other 8 this time. What will be disappointing for them, apart from the bowling and fielding is the way the batting performed tonight. No one stepped up, with only 4 batsmen crossing double digits. Agreed, that 220 was not that easy a chase but may be, the batsmen could have spent some time in the middle. Too many shots were played.
Lock, stock and barrel. That is the best way to describe this game for India. Completely outplayed. They might have been in it for around 4-5 overs but the remaining 35 belonged to New Zealand.

Daryl Mitchell To Yuzvendra Chahal OUT!
OUT! Maiden T20I wicket for Mitchell. He finishes things up. The slower one on middle, Chahal swings but misses, he is way too early into the shot. The ball hits the middle pole. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 80 RUNS!

Just a run off the Free Hit. What more can you expect though from a number 11? Full and on middle, it is hit down to long on for a single.

    Tim Southee To MS Dhoni OUT!
    OUT! Caught! Straight to the man. A short ball, Dhoni pulls but straight to Lockie Ferguson at deep square leg. So the only thing which was left worth waiting for - A Dhoni 50 - is not coming either.

    Again, the batsmen do not run. A short ball, MS looks to pull but is hurried into the shot. Just about eludes a leaping Ish Sodhi but Lockie Ferguson mops it up from backward square leg.

      Beaten for pace there! Full and outside off, Chahal looks to drive but even before the bat comes down the ball whizzes through.

      Lockie Ferguson To Bhuvneshwar Kumar OUT!
      OUT! Edged and taken! Another excellent catch by Seifert. Full and outside off, Kumar tries to squeeze it out but it goes off the outside edge to the right of the keeper. It is traveling. Seifert dives, sticks his gloves out and the ball sticks in the webbing.

        Tim Southee To Krunal Pandya OUT!
        OUT! Once again the short ball does the trick for Southee. Too quick for Pandya. It is a well-directed one. Pandya looks to pull but is late on the shot. Hits the gloves, then the helmet and lobs towards the keeper who takes a nice catch diving across to his left.
