Kohli becomes 2nd highest run-getter in T20Is

Kohli becomes 2nd highest run-getter in T20Is

When everyone was very busy in the celebration Hardik Pandey has taken a moment to take his revenge about which he announced publicly earlier, a few months ago. a few hours ago India lost the cricket match against New Zealand by 40 runs.

Given a spot in the starting XI on Saturday following Ashish Nehra's retirement, Siraj had a baptism with fire in Rajkot as New Zealand's batsmen made merry. The duo notched up a century run partnership in only 11 overs before Martin Guptill got out to Yuzvendra Chahal in the 12th over leaving the score at 105. Munro was in such a murderous mood that he completed his second T20I century off just 54 balls (6x4, 7x6). It poured fours and sixes nearly at will and soon it was not a question of how to get rid of them, but how to stop the flow of runs as no bowler was making any impact. So far in the tour, India have won the ODI series as well as the T20I series-opener and are in a commanding position. Shreyas Iyer initially attacked the kiwi bowlers but then slowed down the pace of his innings as it seemed he was trying to hit every ball out of the park. MS was very good at the end. Captain Virat Kohli did keep India's hopes alive with a quickfire 65 off 452 balls, the asking rate just kept climbing. "I'm looking to bowl the way I did in the IPL, because you don't get much turn; it's skiddy and there's not much bounce", Akshar said before the match.
