India vs New Zealand: Kiwis thump India with an 8-wicket win; India staring at a group stage exit

New Zealand posted a convincing 8-wicket win over India, with the latter looking at an early exit from this T20 World Cup.

India vs New Zealand T20 World Cup 2021 Highlights: A week since losing to Pakistan in their first match of the T20 World Cup, India hit the ground again, this time against New
Zealand in Dubai with the other results in the group proving to be added pressure for the side. With Afghanistan notching up a big win and Pakistan continuing their winning ways, it was a crucial fixture. India were on the backfoot right from the start with the Kiwi bowlers picking apart the Indian batsmen. The top order fell like a pack of cards and even the tail couldn't do enough. New Zealand were supreme with the bat and the bowl. They made the Indian line-up barring Bumrah, look ordinary. Lot of thinking to do for Kohli and co as they go back to the drawing board.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 111/2 (14.3) | Ind 110/7 (20): That's it. New Zealand beat India by eight wickets and open their account in the points table. If they manage to win all their remaining games, they will be in the semi-finals. Their only test could be Afghanistan a week from now. A convincing win for them over India. India are staring at a group stage exit here. Even if they win all their remaining fixtures, it won't guarantee them a place in the semi-final. They will need the other teams, especially New Zealand to slip up.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 96/2 (12.4) | Ind 110/7 (20): WIcket. Mitchell misses out on his fifty. It was a dipping slow ball from Bumrah and Mitchell lofts it in the air. He doesn't get enough force behind it and KL Rahul collects it safely at long-on.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 83/1 (10) | Ind 110/7 (20): Shardul Thakur comes into the attack and Mitchell makes a meal of him. 14 runs from that over which included a six and two fours. Kiwis, especially Mitchell are taking apart the Indian bowlers. Half way through the overs and New Zealand need just 28 now. India are not only staring at a defeat, but also a huge deficit in their net run-rate.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 55/1 (8) | Ind 110/7 (20): Another poor over from Jadeja. He looks to be bowling without any intent. The field is a very passive setup. Wonder how Kohli would justify keeping Ashwin out. So far this world cup, Jadeja has failed with the bat and the bowl. Pandya too for that matter. Kiwis are cruising along meanwhile.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 44/1 (6) | Ind 110/7 (20): Good over for New Zealand. Jadeja concedes 15. New Zealand negotiate through the power play with 44 runs losing a single wicket. They wouldn't mind that. India have already used up two overs of Bumrah and three of Varun.

    Live | India vs New Zealand | T20 World Cup 2021 | NZ 30/1 (5) | Ind 110/7 (20): A neat over from Varun. Just two of it. New Zealand playing cautiously now. They don't want to lose any more wickets to rash shots.
