Team India registered its first ever T20I win in New Zealand on Friday. Therefore, a majority of the cricketing trends revolved around this topic. There was immense praise for Krunal Pandya, who came back strong after all the beating that he took in the first T20I. His brother Hardik Pandya was proud of what he has achieved and shared a tweet expressing his happiness. Moreover, the former cricketers and analysts congratulated the ‘Men in Blue’ for this terrific achievement.
Another interesting announcement that caught a lot of attention is related to Ricky Ponting. The three-time World Cup winner is named the assistant coach of the Australian team. Therefore, there are quite high expectations on him. It was carnage in Brisbane as the Heat chased down 157 runs in just 10 overs. Even though the team has kept the hopes alive, it could also be the potential last game from Brendon McCullum. Therefore, there were some emotional wishes for him.

Brilliant comeback from India after the defeat in the last game. It was heartening to see how quickly the team learned from their mistakes and rectified. Hopefully, the next match will be a perfect end to a successful tour down under.
