All-round India break New Zealand duck in Delhi – Cricbuzz

By on November 2, 2017

Rohit Sharma offered an even simpler chance – to Tim Southee at long off – but the fast bowler fluffed it to allow the opening partnership to flourish. Both Rohit and Dhawan punished the visitors for their mistakes on the field by putting together the highest ever T20I opening partnership for India and third overall – 158. What was also crucial was the pair’s ability to hit the next gear exactly when India needed them to. From 46 in 6 overs, India cruised to 80 at the halfway stage. And yet, the match-defining period came in the next six overs to follow. The impact of dew prompted Williamson to try out the nagging medium pace of Colin Munro, but the move proved to be the outlet for Rohit to find his way out of a sedate start. Ish Sodhi too was welcomed with some hostility in his second spell as the pair took their opening stand past 100. Williamson had to use five different bowlers in the six overs after the 10th, as Rohit and Dhawan blazed away to power India to 158/0 in 16 overs – a frenzied phase of six overs that fetched India 78 runs, including a 14-run over off Sodhi, 11 off Southee, 15 off Santner and 18 off Trent Boult.
