OUT! Bowled. Daryl Mitchell to Yuzvendra Chahal. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. New Zealand have thrashed India by 80 runs in Wellington to take a 1-0 lead in the three match T20I series. The victory was set up by the batting, with Tim Seifert's inventive 84 leading the way for the Black Caps to post a huge total of 6-219. In the eight matches he'd played prior to this evening Seifert had yet to pass 14, but he showed his talent and confidence tonight to vindicate the Kiwis decision to stick with him. It was always going to be tough for the tourists in response with the required rate at a daunting level, and losing both of their openers in the powerplay wasn't the ideal start. The hosts were brilliant with the ball and in the field to never let India back into the contest, with Tim Southee's 6-219 showing the value of experience in the shortest format. India will need a much improved display at Eden Park in Auckland on Friday night to keep the series alive.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Ferguson. Picks out the man in the deep, India are on the verge of being bowled out now. On a night dominated by the batsmen, Southee has used all his experience to return really impressive bowling figures.

OUT! Caught. Lockie Ferguson to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Seifert. What a grab, sensational stuff from Seifert. His day just keeps getting better and better. It went low and quickly to his right and he managed to pouch it in the webbing of his right glove. Ferguson gets his second, New Zealand closing in on a huge victory.

OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Krunal Pandya. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to third slip, by Seifert. Beaten for pace by a brutal bouncer, Krunal's resistance is ended by Southee. He never looked comfortable against the short ball tonight and in the end it's caused his downfall. He took his eyes off it which is never a good idea, especially when it's coming at you so quickly.

FOUR! Tim Southee to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump down the track cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Such a cool and casual stroke by Dhoni, trusting his timing to cream the ball over point. It looks like this will be too little too late for India however.
