But this time, the matter went two steps ahead of the match against Pakistan. The Indian team’s openers did not play once again. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan returned inside the powerplay. After these two, the rest of the team’s batting could not do anything special, and the entire team could score only 110 runs in 20 overs.
This score was bound to be insufficient in front of the WTC Champions. New Zealand batters easily achieved this target against India in 14.3 overs for the loss of 2 wickets.

Well, how will the revenge be taken? For this, the Indian team will prepare for it.
