...
That was certainly a turn up for the record books in a very literal sense. New Zealand start off with a win and India's net run-rate has taken a severe beating. Join us again tomorrow for a double header as things start heating up.
...
For his four wickets, Mitchell Santner is the Man of the Match. He admits the total was probably below par but that the spinners bowled well.
...
On a turning pitch, chasing a low total, Indian batsmen lacked application and no one apart from Kohli, Dhoni and Ashwin, looked like they wanted to grit it out and claim a victory. Too many batsmen played with hard hands and gifted their wickets. But take nothing away from the Kiwi spinners, who vindicated their captain's faith by picking up the wickets at the right time and New Zealand win by 47 runs and get off to the perfect start in the 2016 ICC World T20.

18.1 Milne to Nehra, WICKET, full ball and Nehra misses and Milne hits and Nehra is gone for a duck and New Zealand have made it five wins in a row over India in T20Is and India's seven-game winning streak is broken.
