Finally, NZ has won a cricket game in a convincing manner. It’s the first time in a long time that i have seen the NZ top order actually perform the way they are supposed to. It was good to see Brendan McCullum get his 50, although he didn’t convince me he’s back in form yet with an awful lot of swing and misses. Either way, the bowling nailed India down early on, and the batting finally backed it up in the second innings. Hooray for NZ!.. hopefully its a sign for the series ahead! 🙂
“New Zealand maintained their unbeaten record against world Twenty20 champions India, securing a rare victory in cricket’s shortest format by cruising to a seven- wicket triumph in Christchurch tonight.
New Zealand overhauled India’s 162 for eight with seven balls remaining to partially atone for their botched run chase against Australia in Sydney on February 15.
“It was a really pleasing win, they put us under pressure and we responded well,” said New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori.”
