Munro slams century as New Zealand level series 1-1

Manish Pandey Kuldeep Yadav

His contribution wasn't enough though and India succumbed to a 40-run defeat to Kane Williamson's team, who have now equaled the three match series 1-1.

Munro's fine innings was the backbone the Kiwis needed as they beat their hosts by 40 runs.

Munro raced to his half-century in just 26 balls, bringing up the landmark with a six off Axar Patel over long on. He broke the record previously held by Rohit Sharma, after his 106 against South Africa in 2015. "But we were left with a very hard task", he added.

The left-arm pacer castled Dhawan's middle-stump with an in-swinging delivery with only his second ball and then got the prize wicket of Sharma with the final delivery of the over. With the hosts reduced to 2-11 inside two overs, it would only take a Herculean effort to chase down 197. Videos showed that Siraj got emotional towards the end of the national anthem and was rubbing his eyes.

Trent Boult on fire!

Siraj had been handed his maiden India cap following impressive showings in the Ranji Trophy, IPL and with India A. Ashish Nehra obviously not part of the side now, Mohammad Siraj comes in.

Some fine hitting from Colin Munro and a brilliant opening over by Trent Boult have helped steer the Black Caps to a series-tying win against India in this morning's T20 match in Rajkot.

Later, captain Williamson became the victim of the debutant and his Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate Mohammed Siraj to give the fast bowler his first worldwide wicket.

The New Zealand opening batsman has been a revelation of sorts on this tour of India.

Guptill struck two more sixes and a boundary in the fifth over to inject some momentum as New Zealand reached 48 for naught by the end of the powerplay.

Colin Munro got the match of the match award for his outstanding 109 run knock and also a bowling spell of 1-23 in 3 overs to go with a brilliant catch.

While Chahal improved as the game wore on, Patel only got worse and so expensive had been India's spinners that Kohli elected not to bowl them out.

To go with that, Kohli boasts of the highest average (54.06) among all the players who have scored more than 1,000 runs in T20Is.
