It’s a disappointing day for Team India which is aiming for a T20I series win against the Kiwis. Chasing a tough target of 213 from 20 overs, Team Indian got bundled out for 208 giving a 4 run victory for New Zealand in the third and final T20I. New Zealand has won the 3-match T20I series with a 2-1 lead.
Interestingly, this is India’s first T20I series in 30 months. India last lost a T20I series against West Indies in 2017 in a one-off game. The 4-run defeat also brought an end to Rohit Sharma’s flawless record as captain in T20Is. Rohit had never lost a T20I series as a skipper until today.
