Pakistan secure top spot in Twenty20 Internationals after India beat New Zealand

Dhoni's contributions in the series that comprised three sets of ODIs and T20Is were mediocre compared to some of his exploits in the past and though he delivered a fighting 37-ball 49 in Rajkot, when most others with the exception of Kohli had failed and India had ended on the losing side, the wicket-keeper batsman's strike-rate was questioned. With the heavy rains that intruded the match, the length of the match is adjusted to mere 8 overs.

The chase as it was a tough tumble for the Kiwis as openers Martin Guptill and the unsafe Colin Munro never got going before being dismissed cheaply.

Virat Kohli's Indian cricket team secured their first-ever series win over New Zealand in Twenty20 Internationals by beating Kane Williamson's side by six runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-curtailed match in Thiruvanathapuram. Guptill missed the line of a Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivery in the final ball of the first over while Jasprit Bumrah had Munro caught just outside the circle, with Rohit Sharma pulling off a stunner, holding the catch at full stretch. Ashish Nehra feels Dhoni is doing a thankless job for the Indian cricket team.

Both the matches were high scoring. "If you look at the series against Sri Lanka and Australia, he did really well and in this series, he hasn't got much time to bat".

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan seemed to be cut out for the task as they scored at a run-rate of seven in the opening two overs. Following the lead, Indian team's captain, Virat Kohli also defended his predecessor's fitness and ability.

Pandey went to a spectacular catch off Trent Boult.

India made 67-5 with Manish Pandey hitting 17 off 11 balls and Kohli 13.

The weather, as was expected, had a huge impact on the game as the start was delayed by close to three hours. What had started as a slight drizzle around 3 p.m. turned into a downpour soon after. "He understands his game, he understands his role, but it doesn't come off every time", Kohli commented. Even though the locals were frustrated with the wait, their spirits never dimmed. The match is scheduled to commence at 7:00 PM.
