NZ beats India at Ranchi T20, Batters fail to deliver

The wicket surprised us: Pandya


Ranchi :  India skipper Hardik Pandya said they were left “surprised” by the grip and turn the pitch offered but admitted the team paid the price for allowing New Zealand to walk away with too many runs.

India suffered a 21-run loss in the opening T20I after New Zealand posted a challenging 176 for six with the last-over thrashing of Arshdeep Singh for 27 runs proving to be the game-changer.

Chasing the total, India batters couldn’t negotiate the spinners as they managed 155 for 9.
