Devon Conway, Daryl Mitchell, and Mitchell Santner combined together as the New Zealanders finally got off the mark on this tour after defeating India by 21 runs in the first of the three T20 internationals at JSCA Stadium in Ranchi. The action now moves to the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow where both sides will meet in the second T20I on a Super Sunday, January 29, 2023.

Talking in detail about the opening T20I, Conway continued his solid form in international cricket as he struck 52 off 35 while Daryl scored a blitz half-century (59* off 30) as the Kiwis posted a challenging total of 176/6 on the board in their allotted 20 overs. Seamer Arshdeep Singh endured a tough night as he conceded 51 runs for just one wicket in four overs.

In reply, India’s top order failed with the first three batters Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and Rahul Tripathi registering single-digit scores. Suryakumar Yadav and Washington Sundar scored 47 and 50 runs respectively but it wasn’t enough as Santner bowled a brilliant spell of 2/11 while Michael Bracewell and Lockie Ferguson also picked up two wickets each to clinch the game for the visitors. Hardik Pandya and his side would look to bounce back and level the series in Lucknow before the final game on February 01 in Ahmedabad.
