Bowlers, Mitchell help New Zealand take 1-0 lead

NZ 176/6 (20)

IND 155/9 (20)

New Zealand won by 21 runs

After being blanked 3-0 in the ODI series, New Zealand start the T20Is with a win and that sets up the series nicely. India would put this as one of their off days for the batters and look to come back strongly in the next game. It is going to be a quick turnaround as the second T20I is on Sunday. That's all from this encounter. Do join us for the next one in Lucknow. Until then, goodbye and stay safe..

Daryl Mitchell | Player of the Match: It is nice to contribute to a score which helps us win a game. I thought the way the boys bowled at the end was pretty special. It is nice to take some momentum into the rest of the T20 series. The guys who went in early said it was pretty difficult against spin because of the tacky nature. It was my job to build a partnership and then take the onus on myself after Conway's departure. For me it is being really present and really clear, keeping it simple as possible and trusting my skills, not everytime it comes off in T20 cricket but it is always nice when you get a few off the middle.
