India lost its first wickets too soon once again, not a good start indeed. The team would want their batters to stay on crease a little longer, trying to prevent the repeat glimpses of the previous game against Pakistan 

Ishan Kishan could only register a single boundary playing 8 balls. 

He played a lovely flick shot, but hit it too well for his own liking. Hit that with power and a deep backward square leg swallows it. The shot was on, but he didn’t place it well. New Zealand get the man who was itching to take on the bowlers in the powerplay.

The duo of KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan opened for India in this crucial fixture against New Zealand as it decides the fate of the teams for the Semi-finals. 

 This opening partnership came a bit of shock for New Zealand. Rahul and Ishan has shown a great partnership strength in the warm-up match as they garnered 82 runs before losing the opening wicket. 

Kl Rahul made a stunning half-century of 4 deliveries and Ishan proved his place by hitting 3 sixes, 7 boundaries and a total of 70 runs off 46 balls.
