The Black Caps have proved worthy foes in their white-ball tour of India, winning the first one-day worldwide by six wickets before losing that series 2-1. "It's about watching the ball, stay still and try and hit every ball for four or six", Munro said.

Munro's fine innings was the backbone the Kiwis needed as they beat their hosts by 40 runs. He subsequently impressed in India A's tour of South Africa. "The dew could be an advantage in the second innings for us", added Kohli. Virat soon got to his 18th fifty in T20i's but the scoreboard pressure got the better off him as he got on 65 runs off 42 balls. With the hosts reduced to 2-11 inside two overs, it would only take a Herculean effort to chase down 197. MS was very good at the end.

Fast bowler Mohammed Siraj handed his maiden worldwide cap by coach Ravi Shastri.

And it proved to be so as Kohli stepped out to Santner for a mighty heave and edged to the New Zealand keeper and India's task became even more hard at 123 for 5 with 21 balls remaining.

India continued with its six-pronged bowling attack but made one change.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (capt), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Tom Bruce, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee.

Debutant paceman Mohammed Siraj gave away 53 runs in four overs but got his maiden worldwide wicket in skipper Kane Williamson for 12.

The 2007 World T20 champions have produced impressive death bowling with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah leading the pace department, while the spinners also pitched in with some excellent bowling in the middle overs.

Guptill struck two more sixes and a boundary in the fifth over to inject some momentum as New Zealand reached 48 for naught by the end of the powerplay.

Chahal was surprisingly willing to give the ball a lot of air on a flat pitch and got the treatment his deliveries deserved while Patel was blown away by Munro's extraordinary power.

To go with that, Kohli boasts of the highest average (54.06) among all the players who have scored more than 1,000 runs in T20Is.
