So that brings us to the end of the first of the three-T20I series between India and New Zealand. After their 4-1 ODI triumph, the Indians are off to a nightmarish start in the T20Is, suffering their biggest loss in terms of runs to trail the Black Caps 0-1 in the series. Rohit Sharma will be a busy man over the next two days, pondering over India's shortcomings and attempting to plug the gaps as the series now heads to Auckland, where the second double-header takes place. 

For now, it's time for us to bid you all goodbye!

Today, Southee, Ferguson, Sodhi and Santner, all took 2-plus wickets.

Kane Williamson, NZ Captain: Fantastic performance all round. One of the performances you search for. The top-order were superb and we built partnerships that helped us. Some really good experiences for the boys, some of the short contributions are of great importance. It is sort of finish now, we move on and in a day's time we play another game. We know it will be different in couple of days time. A complete performance that doesn't happen everyday and hope we can keep the momentum through the series. Daryll made his debut, which is really exciting. We did have the runs on the board but the bowling and fielding was of high standards.(On the White Ferns' victory) It was a great game. Throughout the series the two teams have followed a similar trend. Hopefully, they can do that in the next game and we can follow it up.

15:58 (IST)

Rohit Sharma: We were outplayed in all three departments. Didn't start off well. Always knew 200 wasn't easy to chase. Kept losing wickets. We've chased targets of 200 and more in the past. Just needed partnerships, which we failed to do. I thought New Zealand played good cricket. (On batting or bowling first at Auckland) We've got to go there and assess conditions, and take it forward. (On decision to bowl first tonight) Us as a team, we've always chased down targets. Even tonight, we were confident of getting that target. 

15:56 (IST)

Seifert: Yeah, it was great way to start the series and the boys are really happy. It was great for me going up the order, look at the first two overs and then go from there and put the pressure on bowlers. I have been selected for a reason and feels nice to have backed my ability

Comprehensive win for New Zealand by 80 runs. India were never really in the game once their top order failed to get going. Last four wickets have fallen for 10 runs. Batting till number eight was on paper only once the openers didn't set a base. 

But let's be honest, India lost this game in the first innings. Tim Seifert's runs knocked them out. 220 was always going to be too tall. India have never beaten New Zealand in New Zealand in T20 cricket. 1-0!

India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ), 1st T20I Live Score: India's misery finally comes to an end, as Mitchell cleans Chahal up off the second delivery of the over, with India suffering their biggest loss in T20Is. Great day for New Zealand cricket fans, with both the men and women winning in the first of the three T20I double-headers.

1st T20I preview: They have hit the homestretch of a memorable three-month tour and a rampant India will be fancying another series win when they clash with under pressure hosts New Zealand in the opening T20 International here on Wednesday.

While regular skipper Virat Kohli is getting the much-needed rest, the Rohit Sharma-led squad will be hoping it has enough left in the tank to record a maiden T20 series win in New Zealand, following a record 4-1 result in ODIs and a historic tour of Australia.

"We too are humans and our bodies need a bit of rest. Of course, we would be looking to the win the series and carry the momentum back home for the Australia series," opener Shikhar Dhawan said on the eve of the game.

The preceding ODI series solved a part of the puzzle as India look to finalise their 15 for the World Cup. But there are still a few spots up for grabs and the T20 series can help the team management zero in on the squad for the mega event in England in May-July.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was not part of the ODIs, returns hungrier and has a big opportunity to stake a claim for a World Cup spot in the upcoming three T20s.

Veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni is back in the T20 mix after being omitted from the series against Australia last year and his performance will also be keenly followed. He last played a T20 in July.

Following the high of the Test series Down Under, another stellar showing might just convince the selectors to include Pant in the final-15.

The series is also an opportunity for Dinesh Karthik, who has done well as a finisher but is still not a sure starter in the eleven. Ambati Rayudu grabbed his chance with a match-winning 90 in the fifth ODI, probably enough to seal a place in the middle-order.

Nineteen-year-old Shubman Gill showed glimpses of his much talked about talent in the final two ODIs but did not allow himself to settle in his debut series. In Kohli's absence, he might get to bat at number three again.

Besides Pant, the others who have joined the team are spin all-rounder Krunal Pandya and Punjab pacer Siddharth Kaul.

In the absence of seniors like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj and Khaleel Ahmed have not made much of an impact and they will be aiming for a breakthrough performance.

Dhawan did not do well in the last three ODIs against New Zealand and is eager to finish the tour on a high.

Ahead of the game, he was also seen practising with a tennis ball to counter the bounce and swing generated by the home team's pacers.

New Zealand will be desperate to turn things around after a 1-4 drubbing. They do hold an upper hand over India in the shortest format. They beat India 2-0 in the 2008-09 in the sole bilateral series played on New Zealand soil till date.

The Black Caps edged the sub-continental side 1-0 in a two-match away series in 2012 before losing 1-2 in India in 2017-18.

The ball swung initially at the Westpac Stadium on Sunday and New Zealand pacers will be itching to exploit that but they won't have the services of premier fast bowler Trent Boult, who has been rested.

It will be interesting to see what rookie all-rounder Daryl Mitchell and pacer Blair Tickner do in their debut series.

Squads:

New Zealand: Kane Williamson(c), Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Blair Tickner, James Neesham.

India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Mohammad Siraj.

Match starts at 12.30 pm IST.

India vs England, Live Cricket Score, 3rd Test Live Updates: STUMPS! Leach provided arguably England's big breakthrough in the game when he saw off Virat Kohli for 27 in the night's final over, but altogether, India would be satisfied with how the opening night panned out. England were bowled out for 112, and India are 99-3, trailing by 13 runs. Just that one run from new batsman Rahane came off the final over, with in-form Rohit Sharma (57*) looking quite promising.
