New Zealand beat India in opening Super 10 game

New Zealand has claimed a shock 47-run victory over tournament favourites India in the opening match of the World Twenty20 Super 10s on 15th March.Chasing 127 to win on a slow, low surface in Nagpur, the hosts were bowled out for a paltry 79 in 18.1 overs despite captain MS Dhoni’s 30.Mitchell Santner took 4-11, Ish Sodhi 3-18 and Nathan McCullum 2-15 as nine India wickets fell to spin.New Zealand’s total of 126-7 was built around Corey Anderson’s patient 34.The value of his innings only became apparent as India, in familiar conditions and with a fervent crowd behind them, slumped to only a second defeat in their past 12 T20s.The manner of defeat as much as the margin will puncture India’s hopes of becoming the first team to win the tournament twice.
