New Zealand vs India - Highlights & Stats

MS Dhoni comes into the picture and asserts his legacy as one of the best wicket-keepers in the world.

The past three months have made for a memorable phase for the Indian cricket team, which won its first Test and bilateral ODI series in Australia followed by the biggest one-day series win in New Zealand.

Dhoni's brilliant skills and fantastic reflexes gave India the much-needed breakthrough as he caught Seifert nearly an inch short of the crease.

The Black Caps made 212 for four, with Colin Munro top-scoring for the hosts with 72 off 40 balls.

After being asked to bat, New Zealand demolished the Indian bowling attack to post an imposing 212 for four in their allotted 20 overs. "You need to be open anyway if you are playing for a team like India", said Shankar after his team's four-run loss in the third T20. After losing his opening partner, Rohit Sharma built a crucial partnership with Vijay Shankar.

In his short stay of 12 balls, Pant managed to score 28 runs but was dismissed off a full toss by debutant Tickner. With him hitting the ball to long-on and refusing a single on the following delivery, it invited a lot of criticism for there was a set batsman at the other end and not a bowler. In between these two dismissals, the Kiwis also got the wicket of a settled Rohit Sharma to tilt the odds in their favour.

The Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, will be aiming to become the first side to win a T20 worldwide series in New Zealand when the two sides clash in the final match on Sunday. Kaur has scored 17 and 5 in the first two games.
