New Zealand vs India - Highlights & Stats

New Zealand seek a reversal of fortunes

India came into the contest on the back of a 4-1 victory in the one-day worldwide series but sorely missed the stability offered by regular skipper Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the three T20 matches. The earlier biggest loss was against Australia in May, 2010 by 49 runs.

The Men in Blue could not make a match of it and were bowled out for just 139 in 19.2 overs with Tim Seifert's opposite number MS Dhoni scoring the highest score for the team - 39.

After today's match, India and New Zealand would play the second T20I at Auckland on February 8 and the third T20I at Hamilton on February 10.

Seifert's runs have come at a crucial time for him, when New Zealand are exploring their wicketkeeping options for the World Cup later this year in England.

"We were outplayed in all three departments", he said.

"As a team we have always chased down targets and we believe that whatever target is set in front of us we can do it".

Florida State kicks QB Deondre Francois off team after abuse allegations surface
He was allowed to enter a diversion program for first-time offenders. "We will not shy away from those high standards of conduct". Francois was the full-time starter for FSU in 2016 and 2017 before he would suffer a season-ending knee injury.

Seifert, whose previous best innings in eight internationals was an unbeaten 14 on debut, gave New Zealand a flying start.

Seifert had a life on 71 when dropped on the boundary by Dinesh Karthik and added a further 13 runs before he was bowled by Khaleel Ahmed.

Seifert reached his maiden T20I half-century from 30 balls and after he and Williamson were dismissed, Ross Taylor (23) and Scott Kuggeleijn (20no) got New Zealand up to 200 and beyond.

Tim Southee led the way in what was a strong all-round Black Caps bowling and fielding effort - the seamer taking 3-17 from his four overs after being left out for all but one of the five one-dayers.

Tim Southee says he didn't have a point to prove on Wednesday night, when he returned to the Black Caps' Twenty20 team after spending most of the recent one-day series against India on the sideline. The home team was earlier routed 4-1 in the five-match One-day worldwide series.
