India vs New Zealand 4th T20 2020, key stats

  • New Zealand lost a second straight T20 International via the super over after they failed to score the seven runs needed off the 20th over of their innings. In the super over, Tim Seifert and Colin Munro gave them 13 runs to defend, but Tim Southee, who was New Zealand’s stand-in captain for the day and took on the responsibility of bowling the super over, conceded 16 runs off five balls. It was India’s seventh victory in 15 T20Is against the Blackcaps and gave them a 4-0 lead in the five-match T20I series
  • Earlier, Manish Pandey played the defining knock of India’s innings to help them finish with 165 for eight after being 88 for six at around the midway point. He made his third T20I half-century, an unbeaten 36-ball 50, and forged crucial partnerships with Shardul Thakur (43) and Navdeep Saini (unbroken 22) to lift India to a par score
  • In reply, New Zealand were on course to seal the run-chase thanks to Colin Munro and wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert’s half-centuries. Munro made his 11th T20I half-century (a 47-ball 64), while Seifert hit his second T20I half-century (a 39-ball 57) and together, the pair added 74 runs for the second wicket
  • It was India captain Virat Kohli’s second tie in T20Is
