T20 WC: India shatters on the field, Kohli returns with 9 runs

India is once again struggling to make it with their battling line-up at it loses 4th wicket, a rather crucial wicket of captain Kohli, at 10.1 overs.

Dubai: India is once again struggling to make it with their battling line-up at it loses 4th wicket, a rather crucial wicket of captain Kohli, at 10.1 overs.

A much disappointed Virat Kohli returned to the dressing room after Boult caught the ball hit by Kohli, much too high and less length. 

Indian team is shattering as it did last Sunday against its arch-rivals Pakistan. The team had hoped to make a come-back, but clearly, New Zealand is too good for India currently.

Rohit Sharma had to return to the dressing room much earlier than expected and desired by the Indian side. Rohit went back to pull but mistimed it towards long-on when he wanted to hit squarer. Long-on runs forward and dives to send Rohit back at 40/3.

India lost its second wicket this time to South, caught by Daryl Mitchell once again. 

Rahul managed to set three boundaries for the team and a total of 18 runs, much less what was expected of the opener.

India lost its first wickets too soon once again, not a good start indeed. 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.
