Mitchell, Williamson Hammer, NZ crushed India again at T20 WorldCup

T20 World Cup 2021: New Zealand crushed India second straight defeat, NZ won by 8 wickets.

India's hopes at the Men's T20 World Cup are hanging by a thread after New Zealand inflicted a second successive miserable defeat on the pre-tournament favourites.

After a 10-wicket thrashing against rivals Pakistan in their opening game, Virat Kohli's side were again woefully abject with the bat to suffer an eight-wicket defeat, with 33 balls to spare, in Dubai.

Put into bat, they lacked intent and crawled to 110-7, only hitting eight fours and two sixes to all but silence an Indian-dominated crowd.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja top-scored with an unbeaten 26 from 19 balls, while left-armer Trent Boult took 3-20 and spinner Ish Sodhi 2-17 for New Zealand.

Jasprit Bumrah removed Martin Guptill for 20 but Daryl Mitchell, who made 49 off 35 balls, shared 72 with Kane Williamson to drag the Black Caps within touching distance of victory before he holed out to long-on.

Williamson finished 33 not out as New Zealand picked up their first win and severely dented the hopes of star-studded India.

New Zealand wins over India: Score Card.

India 110-7 (20 overs): Jadeja 26* (19); Pandya 23 (24) --- Boult 3-20, Sodhi 2-17

New Zealand 111-2 (14.3 overs): Mitchell 49 (35), Williamson 33* (31); ---- Bumrah 2-19

New Zealand won by eight wickets
