Team India triumphs against NZ in T20 series!


Recommended for Preparatory Grades

The India – New Zealand T20 series was spoiled by rain. Duckworth Lewis was used to determining the winner of the third match.

What is Duckworth-Lewis method (DLS) in cricket?

The Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method computes the target score for the team batting second in a restricted overs cricket contest interrupted by rain or other conditions.

Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Siraj stopped New Zealand in its tracks with game-changing deliveries. India won the third and final Twenty20 match by the Duckworth-Lewis method on Tuesday to win the three-match series 1-0.

After the year 2020, India once again prevailed in a T20 series played in New Zealand.

Key highlights!

  • India bowled New Zealand out for 160 in 19.
  • Arshdeep and Siraj worked well together and shared eight wickets between them during the match.
  • Arshdeep (4/37) and Siraj (4/17) led India to a spectacular recovery.
  • This is after New Zealand appeared to be in control of the game with a score of 130 for two in the 16th over.
  • After Devon Conway (59 off 49 balls) and Glenn Phillips (54 off 33), the home team’s batting collapsed.
  • They only managed to score 30 runs before losing eight wickets.
  • When play was paused due to rain, India’s score was 75 for 4, putting them in a perilous position.
  • At that point in time, it was a Duckworth Lewis par-score.
  • The game was called off at that point and finished in a draw.
  • Suryakumar Yadav’s spectacular series-winning hundred in Tauranga and Siraj emerging as a formidable T20 option in good conditions.
  • The initial match was completely wiped out, while the last game also suffered owing to adverse weather.
