Dubai: India suffer yet another big defeat in the ongoing ICC T20 Men’s World Cup, the last being on Sunday against Pakistan.
Players in ‘Black Caps’ shook India as they halted the total at 110 and then chased it like a cake-walk.
New Zealand did not look at all troubled when Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell came on the field. It only took 4 of Kiwi Players to successfully chase the target of 111 runs.
Jasprit Bumrah was the only lucky player on the Indian side as he took 2 wickets on Kiwis.
Trent Boult has proven his words of doing to India what Shaheen Afridi did last Sunday in India’s first face-off. Kiwi bowlers executive their bowling plan with huge success wrapping India within 110 runs, one of its lowest totals.
Trent took 3 wickets of Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur and Ishan Kishan putting India under huge pressure.

India is currently in huge trouble as it loses both the games of the tournament. Same pattern followed in both the games, losing wickets at regular intervals, India struggled to make a great total.
Indian team shattered 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.
Rishabh Pant could not do anything but leave the crease When Milne bowled directly in the wickets. Milne punches in the air out of happiness as the Indian player make their way back to stands in the disappointment.
Virat Kohli returned to the dressing room after Boult caught the ball hit by Kohli, much too high and less length.
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 Southee, 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
