India folded for 139 in 19.2 overs collapsing to their worst-ever defeat by 80 runs in the first T20 global. Earlier, wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert took the Indian bowling apart with 84 runs off 43 balls as New Zealand posted a commanding 219 for six. Daryl Mitchell on debut was superb with his slower balls, that admittedly purchased more response off the pitch in the second innings. MS Dhoni (39 off 31 balls) did play his part but it was always an impossible chase with wickets falling at regular intervals at the other end. Daryll bowled really well and played a good cameo down the order. Dinesh Karthik, however, had dropped a couple of catches. "I had a look at the first two overs and then took it from there and put pressure on the bowlers", he said. "It's just that you have to learn from every game", he said.
Tim Southee was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets while fellow pacer Lockie Ferguson and spinners Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi claimed two each as India suffered their worst defeat by runs since a 49-run loss to Australia at the 2010 World T20.

"I just go out, do what I do, and hey, if that gets me over the line, brilliant, you know, but still being young, you know, (I've) still got time on my side", the 24-year-old said in his post-match press conference. But we didn't have (even) small partnerships and that made it tougher. However, New Zealand's total score was 159/ 4 in 20 overs, opening batters couldn't hold the ground for long. hey did not start as Suzie Bates was caught out by Taniya Bhatia off Radha Yadav's bowling when the score was just 11.
