Suryakumar Yadav’s century propels India to a 65-run victory


Highlights of the second Twenty20 India v New Zealand match: Suryakumar Yadav made a brilliant unbeaten century before the Indian bowlers staged a collective bowling performance to defeat New Zealand by 65 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the India series three games.

New Zealand struggled to build strong partnerships as they chased 192 as they often lost wickets.

India’s victory over New Zealand at the Bay Oval on Sunday by a score of 65 marked the beginning of the transition phase after the World Cup.

The shots of Suryakumar Yadav

The form of one Suryakumar Yadav, who produced a heart-pounding innings full of strokes across the pitch en route to a brilliant unbeaten century – his second of his T20I career – has not changed, despite India’s attempts to resurrect their T20I project.

Tim Southee took a hat-trick in the penultimate over, but was still unbeaten at 111, and it was only on his blitz that India managed a troublesome 191/6 in 20 overs. In reply New Zealand lost Finn Allen to a duck in the first over and were unable to recover.

Before spinners applied compression in the middle overs and put further pressure on them, regular shots kept them on their back foot.

Whenever the big designated hitters went out of the game, Kane Williamson managed to hold an end with a gutsy half-century, but the pace at which he was delivered wasn’t going to help them. Eventually they were bowled out for 125, with Deepak Hooda taking 4/10, including 3 in one over. Tuesday will see the third and final T20I game.

India won by 65 runs

While it’s not a hat-trick, Deepak Hooda manages to dismiss Adam Mile in the next after Arshdeep Singh surprises him at length. He made a 6. New Zealand were bowled out for 126 in 18.5 Overs thanks to Hooda, who finished on 4/10 from 2.5 Overs. India lead the three match series 1-0.
