    18.6 big appeal for caught behind, but the keeper doesn't and now the umpires are going to confer. Third umpire is called in, soft signal is out. This is an attempted yorker from Boult, wide outside off. Rohit tries to flay it away, but it's too quick for him. The reason the two on-field umpires wanted a second opinion was because they wanted to check on the bump ball. But instead, Anil Chaudhary comes back with, "bat hit the ground" and rules not out. That prompts New Zealand to review and the same man who ruled this not out has to change his decision because Ultra-Edge shows a spike as ball passes bat. 185/3
    16.2 gorgeous work! It's the googly, a last resort for Sodhi as he sees the batsman advancing. He pitches it short, makes sure the line is wide outside off. Dhawan is charging, while making room to leg and has no chance of making contact. But it would seem that he has feathered a nick through to Latham, who also breaks the stumps to stump him 158/1
    16.4 ripper! That's the dream delivery for a legspinner. Drifting in towards leg stump, drawing the batsman forward, dipping before he can get to it and spinning square to take a bit of wood through to the wicketkeeper 158/2

    1.3 WHAT. A. CATCH! Super-Hardik with a stunner as the Kotla roars in appreciation. Length ball on middle. Guptill gets the front leg forward but makes sure to stay slightly leg side so he gets room to free his arms. Launches it straight down and Hardik Pandya hares across to his right from long-off, puts in a full-blooded, full-length dive and snaffles it with both hands outstretched., Still slides for a few seconds as the momentum carries him along. You won't see too many better catches 6/1

    3.4 yorker. That's an inch-perfect delivery. Good pace, that's an 87-miles-per-hour missile. Munro is late in bringing the bat down and gets a bit of an inside edge before the ball crashes into the stumps 18/2
    9.1 edged and taken. Short and wide, just gets a bit of extra bounce that results in Williamson getting the outside edge as he slashes hard. Brilliant seam position on that delivery which enabled him to generate that extra bounce. Simple catch for MS Dhoni. New Zealand plunge further 54/3
    15.3 that's the end of Latham. Dhoni effects those kind of stumpings in his sleep. Latham gives a blind charge and Chahal has fired this flat and taken it away from him. It's the wrong'un and does not meet the swipe of Latham 99/7
    12.4 Axar slows it up again and Bruce does not get the pace he's looking for at all. Gets down for a big slog sweep. All muscle but very little timing. Doesn't find the middle and offers a simple, straightforward catch to deep midwicket. He was really struggling to get behind the line and that's the end of his pained stay 83/4
    12.6 Dhawan takes a simple catch and that's two wickets in the over. Take a bow, Axar. He's making life miserable for New Zealand's batsmen. He knows they really have to go for it and he's offering them next to no pace. And de Grandhomme has paid the price for wrong shot selection. It's not the ideal length to be slogging, slightly short for that and he gets a top-edge that settles into the hands of Dhawan at deep square leg 84/5
    14.4 is that gone? Yes, surely. Direct hit from Kohli. Full toss, angled across off, driven straight to mid-off and they take off for the single. Kohli has a clear sight of the stumps and nails an accurate throw. No need to refer that upstairs. New Zealand unravelling quite spectacularly 94/6

    16.4 tell you what, took a couple of seconds to realise that he had nicked it. Seemed like he had merely been beaten. Stays leg side of the ball, makes no effort to get close to it and swipes blindly to get what turns out to be a healthy edge. Dhoni gleefully accepts the simple offering 111/8

Match Notes

A win finally

1

This is the first time India have beaten NZ in T20Is. In the previous five encounters, NZ were the winners.

Biggest stand

138

Previous highest stand for India in T20Is for any wicket, between Rohit and Kohli v SA in Dharamsala . Dhawan & Rohit have raced ahead of that in this match.

After a while

11

No. of consecutive inns without a 50+ opening stand between Dhawan and Rohit in T20Is, before this. The last was against SL in Ranchi last year. They have added over 50 runs today.
