New Delhi. The Indian cricket team got a crushing defeat in the first match of the three-match T20 series against New Zealand.

Chasing the target, Team India was able to score only 155 runs after losing 9 wickets. By winning the match by 21 runs, the visiting team took a 1-0 lead.
In the ODI series, where the hosts India showed their strength, New Zealand made a sense of power by winning the first match of the T20 series. The target of 177 runs became big for the Indian team as the opening pair failed to get a good start, as well as Suryakumar did not get the kind of innings he is known for. Surya played Maiden in one over in this match, which had never happened to him before in T20 International.

New Zealand captain Mitchell Satner did such an over against Suryakumar Yadav which no bowler had done against him in T20 International before. In fact, Captain Santner, who came for the sixth over of India’s innings, bowled 6 balls of 6 dots. Suryakumar faced all these balls but he kept on struggling to score runs.
Only second Maiden against Surya
Till now no bowler had bowled a maiden over against Surya, who was selected as ICC’s T20 Cricketer of the Year 2022. Santner became the first bowler to bowl in T20 International. Although there is a bowler in domestic cricket who longed for Surya to score runs. In the 2016 IPL, Praveen Kumar bowled a maiden over against him.
