  • India's T20I challenge vs New Zealand begins February 6

New Zealand opener Tim Seifert scored 84 off 43 balls as the hosts thumped India by 80 runs on Wednesday in the first Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) to hand the visitors their biggest-ever loss in the shortest format of the game.

Tim Seifert smashed 84 off 43 balls. However, the batting line-up most definitely missed out on the stability offered by regular skipper Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the three T20 matches after also having been rested for both the final two ODIs. With the crack opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan departing within the Powerplay, the chase became a hard one and India were all out for 139 in 19.2 overs.

But a searing Lockie Ferguson yorker to get rid of Shikhar Dhawan for a brisk 29 and put the visitors back on their heels.

Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi picked four wickets between them, both of them striking twice in an over to break India's backbone.

Even his approach to hitting in the shortest format appears to replicate that of the former Black Caps captain.

MS Dhoni was the top-scorer for India with 39 runs off 31 balls while no other batsman managed to impress much with the willow.

Manuel Pellegrini says he he wants to beat Liverpool for West Ham's gain primarily, but also as a Man City fan. That just shows just ineffective Firmino was during the game. "If you get a point at West Ham , that's fine".

An opening partnership of 86 in 8.2 overs between Seifert and Colin Munro (34) got New Zealand off to a strong start.

Seifert's runs have come at a crucial time for him, when New Zealand are exploring their wicketkeeping options for the World Cup later this year in England.

Krunal said, "Dropping catches is a part and parcel of the game".

Seifert had a life on 71 when dropped on the boundary by Dinesh Karthik and added a further 13 runs before he was bowled by Khaleel Ahmed. The Kiwis had scored 164 runs when Karthik took the catch.

The only time India dominated the game was when Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya struck off consecutive deliveries to account for Mitchell and Williamson but an unbeaten knock of 20 off 7 balls by Kuggeleijn soared the hosts past 200, taking it beyond India before setting them their highest ever chase to win.
