Black Caps defeated in Twenty20 decider against India

November 8, 2017

The Black Caps have lost their Twenty20 series in India after losing the third and final match by six runs.

In wet conditions, the game was reduced to just eight overs per-side. India batted first and scored 67-5.

Kiwi bowlers Tim Southee and Trent Boult performed well in their two overs with the ball for New Zealand, Southee take 2-13 and Boult returning figures of 1-13.

New Zealand could only manage 61-6 in reply.

The Black Caps chase did not start well as top three batsmen Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and captain Kane Williamson all fell for less than eight.

Colin de Grandhomme eventually top-scored with 17 not out, Tom Bruce hitting a nine-ball 11.

India won the one-day series by the same margin.

New Zealand now head home to prepare for two test against the West Indies, starting in Wellington on December 1.
