For Ishan Kishan, the first Twenty20 International match between India and New Zealand, which took place on Friday in Ranchi, seemed like a return to familiar territory.
Kishan thrilled his home audience with a fantastic direct hit that got Michael Bracewell out of the game. This occurred despite the fact that the hosts were defeated by 21 runs due to a lacklustre effort by their batsmen.
When Daryll Mitchell attempted to hit the ball during the 18th over of New Zealand’s innings, he was unable to do so effectively, and the ball instead hit his thigh pad and began to roll slowly towards the keeper.
Kishan displayed excellent presence of mind as he immediately picked up the ball and executed a direct hit, which ensured that the batsman would not be able to get to the crease in time.
In the first Twenty20 international encounter of the three-match series, which took place on Friday at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi, New Zealand defeated India by 21 runs thanks to a dominant performance with both the bat and the ball.
The score after the first match of the series favours New Zealand, 1-0.
While trying to reach a target of 177, Washington Sundar scored the most runs for Team India with 50 off of 28 deliveries, and Suryakumar Yadav played a determined knock of 47 runs to help Team India reach their goal.
Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, and Lockie Ferguson all took two wickets for New Zealand in their respective innings.
Earlier, New Zealand’s score of 176 for six against India was pushed by Daryl Mitchell’s scorching innings of 59 and Devon Conway’s tenacious fifty.
Mitchell had the greatest number of runs scored for New Zealand, 59, and he did so off only 30 balls. A knock of 52 was made by Devon Conway, who also contributed. Arshdeep Singh was the Indian bowler who gave up the most runs, as the New Zealand batsmen scored 51 runs in just four overs against him.
