Twitter Reactions: New Zealand hands India their worst T20I defeat

Posted On

India crashed to their worst T20I defeat as an aggressive 84 by Tim Seifert guided New Zealand to an 80-run win Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Wednesday.

Seifert and Colin Munro blazed away at the top of the innings with an 86-run partnership off 50 deliveries as New Zealand posted their third-highest T20I total of 219.

India were all-out in reply for 139 with four balls remaining, in only the eighth time they have failed to bat through a 20-over innings.

Their previous worst defeat was by 49 runs against Australia at Bridgetown in 2010.

The second T20I of the three-match series will be played in Auckland on Friday (February 8). India won the preceding ODI series 4-1.
