  • New Zealand seek a reversal of fortunes

Dhoni batted through to the end of the 19th over but the required rate continued to rise by the time he was caught off Southee, New Zealand were already assured of victory - with Mitchell bowling Yuzvendra Chahal in the final over to confirm it.

"Kinda amusing when I got told that I'll be opening the innings", Seifert told Star Sports, after setting up New Zealand's 80-run win with an explosive 43-ball 84, "I YouTubed Brendon McCullum and watched some of his innings".

Even his approach to hitting in the shortest format appears to replicate that of the former Black Caps captain.

After making his T20 debut a year ago, Seifert really announced himself on the global stage last night when he smashed 84 runs off 43 balls as the opener.

Earlier, Seifert, whose previous best score in T20 Internationals happens to be 14, was promoted to open alongside Colin Munro and they added 86 runs in only 8.2 overs in a whirlwind start.

Seifert, who was adjudged the "Man of the Match" for his 43-ball 84, said he was happy to live up to the expectations after his selection in the team.

When New Zealand spinners Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi both picked up two wickets in their first overs, reducing India to 77-6 after 11 overs, the result was all but sealed.

As the opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma (1) and Shikhar Dhawan (29) departed within the powerplay overs, the chase became a hard one and India crumbled for 139 in 19.2 overs. With the crack opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan departing within the Powerplay, the chase became a hard one and India were all out for 139 in 19.2 overs.

Shikhar Dhawan blazed away with a quick 29, but five wickets fell for 26 runs in 33 deliveries once he was bowled by Lockie Ferguson.

"One of the complete performances you search for. Seifert was excellent", Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson said. "We had runs on the board, but bowling and fielding were outstanding".

MS Dhoni has many great records to his name, but on Wednesday he earned an unwanted record for himself during the 1 T20 between India and New Zealand at Wellington.
