New Zealand beat India by 21 runs in Ranchi T20
Amazing bowling by New Zealand captain Mitchell Santner
He bowled 1 over maiden along with taking 2 wickets
New Delhi. As soon as the format changed, the game of the New Zealand team that came on the tour of India also changed. In Ranchi T20, she proved twenty on Team India in every department of the game. As a result, the first match of the 3 T20 series came in the hands of the Kiwi team. A day before the match, a New Zealand player had prepared a winning strategy. He announced that what he has learned from Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he will try in this match. This happened during the match and New Zealand got its first win on this tour.
This disciple of Dhoni is none other than New Zealand’s T20 captain Mitchell Santner. He dashed the hopes of Hardik Pandya’s Team India in Ranchi.
Even before this match, Mitchell Santner had said that I have seen and understood Mahendra Singh Dhoni closely while living in Chennai Super Kings. How does he lead? Remains calm even under pressure on the field. I am also somewhat like that and what I have learned from him in these years, I will try to implement it on the field in T20 series for India. Let us tell you that Santner has recently been made the T20 captain of New Zealand. Under his captaincy, New Zealand had so far defeated only teams like Ireland, Scotland. Now India has been defeated.
Amazing bowling by Santner
Mitchell Santner not only performed amazingly as a player in Ranchi, but also took the right decisions as a captain. Be it changes in bowling or field setting. He quickly sensed the mood of the Ranchi wicket and when India came down to chase the target of 177 runs. So the new ball was handed over to the spin bowler. The advantage of this was that New Zealand had dropped 3 wickets of India in the powerplay itself. One of these wickets was taken by Santner himself and the other by off-spinner Michael Bracewell. New Zealand spinners were seen to be heavy on Indian batsmen in the whole match.

Suryakumar was not allowed to score
No team has the break to keep the batter silent in T20. Santner found his way and threw an over mandon against Suryakumar Yadav. While Surya had scored a century in Rajkot T20 against Sri Lanka earlier this year. Santner gave only 11 runs in 4 overs of his quota and took two wickets. It includes Shubman Gill and Deepak Hooda. He also ran out Shivam Mavi. He did this feat in front of Dhoni, who was watching the match sitting in the stadium.
