Ross Taylor does his best to lift Franklin who has his arms outstretched. NZ leave India with a win, finally and stretch their record against India in T20s to 4 out of 4.
2nd Wicket: 50 runs in 37 balls (V Kohli 31, SK Raina 19, Ex 0)
India: 100 runs in 11.5 overs (71 balls), Extras 0
India: 150 runs in 18.5 overs (113 balls), Extras 3
India somehow lost their way towards the end, between overs 14 and 18. New Zealand did well to pull it back. Franklin, like Irfan, made things difficult with the back-of-the-hand slower balls. Yuvraj did more than what was expected of him but more dominance from the other end would have helped.
I was a bit surprised to see Rohit coming in at the climax. Is sending an out of form player the best thing for that situation? I don’t think it was fair on Rohit to be honest. Irfan would have been a better option.
Skimming through the mails, plenty blaming Dhoni for this defeat.
