New Delhi. In the first T20 match played between India and New Zealand (India vs New Zealand) on Wednesday, a player came to play, which got the special interest of Indian sports lovers.

He came out to bat in the 18th over and got out trying to hit a big shot. New Zealand has challenged India for 165 runs in this match.
