IND vs NZ – In the T20 match against Zealand, the Indian Cricket team had a challenge to do or die. After losing the first T20 match, Team India had to perform well in any match in this match. New Zealand’s team decided to field first by winning the toss in the match.
The Indian team had included the Krunal Pandya in their team for this match because Team India wanted to challenge the Kiwi team through its spin attack. The Kunal Pandya also did not disappoint the fans and the team, nor did they just perform well with the ball but also made a special record for themselves.
Simultaneously, Kunal Pandya also got a great record. This 27-year-old all-rounder has done amazing in his eighth T20 match and he became the first Indian player to take more than 2 wickets in a T20 match on New Zealand soil. Kunal took 1 wicket for 37 runs in the last match, and after the embarrassing defeat of India in that match, there was also a lot of criticism of the team’s bowlers.
In the second T20 match in Auckland, pace bowler Khalil Ahmed took 2 wickets while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Krunal’s brother Hardik Pandya and got 1-1 wickets. Along with this, the New Zealand team, who scored 219 in the last match, could score only 158 runs in 8 overs for 8 wickets.
