New Zealand speedster Lockie Ferguson dismissed India opener Shikhar Dhawan with an on-point yorker in the first T20I at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Wednesday.
It was the fourth delivery of the sixth over during the second innings when Ferguson clocked 151 kmph and also produced a searing yorker to send Dhawan back to the hut.
Dhawan was left bamboozled by the pace and the accuracy of Ferguson. The Kiwi pacer enjoyed the dismissal as he celebrated Dhawan’s wicket with passion.
The southpaw had no answer to the ferocious delivery of Ferguson, who has been roped in by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming edition.

Meanwhile, the Men in Blue suffered a disappointing loss against the Blackcaps in the first T20I of the three-match series. Not only did the hosts dominate the visitors’ bowling, but they also bowled out India for a total of 139 in 19.2 overs.
Put in to bat first, New Zealand posted a mammoth total of 219 for 6 on the board. The Indian bowling unit was taken away for the cleaners especially by Tim Seifert – 84(43).
