22:54 (IST)

A decisive day for the T20 World Cup 2021 fortunes of both India and New Zealand. With that win, New Zealand are third in Group 2, behind Pakistan and Afghanistan (who have played one more game than the Kiwis). Meanwhile, India are fifth in the standings, one spot below Namibia! 

India still have three more matches left in the tournament, against Namibia, Afghanistan and Scotland. But their chances of making it to the semis are now slim. But with that we have arrived at the end of this liveblog. See you tomorrow with the live coverage of England vs Sri Lanka.

Kane Williamson: "It was a fantastic all-round performance from us against a formidable India side. We were able to build pressure throughout. We saw some very good signs in our first match as well and we built on that. Ish Sodhi is an outstanding T20 bowler, white-ball bowler in particular. He's been a big part and played in a number of competitions, and in these conditions, spin will play a part."

22:41 (IST)

Virat Kohli: It's quite bizarre. To be honest, we were just not brave enough today. New Zealand had better intensity, better body language. There's only one way to play on T20 cricket, you have to be optimistic. We have to disconnect from these results. We have to go out with a positive frame of mind."

22:34 (IST)

Ish Sodhi: "We weren't able to see the ground before we got here. First time we have set foot in Dubai stadium, and it was something we had to adapt to. Tim Southee getting the wicket late in the Powerplay was massive for us, it allowed the spinners to bowl. We had a tough loss against Pakistan."

22:32 (IST)

Ish Sodhi is the Player of the Match.

22:30 (IST)

NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 8 WICKETS

After their 10-wicket defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the first Super 12 game, India have lost by eight wickets to New Zealand in their second game. Daryl Mitchell's knock of 49 runs and skipper Kane Williamson's unbeaten 33-run innings guided New Zealand to an easy victory over Men in Blue.

India have their man, but it's already too late with the Kiwis within sniffing distance of victory. What a measured innings Mitchell has played, starting brashly, but then ensuring that New Zealand breezed their way to the target.

22:14 (IST)

After 12 overs, New Zealand 94/1 (Daryl Mitchell 49, Kane Williamson 20)

Pandya comes into the attack and starts with a dot ball. The rest of the balls are all worked away for a run apiece. Kiwis need 17 runs from 48 balls.

India vs New Zealand, Latest Updates, T20 World Cup 2021: After their 10-wicket defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the first Super 12 game, India have lost by eight wickets to New Zealand in their second game. Daryl Mitchell's knock of 49 runs and skipper Kane Williamson's unbeaten 33-run innings guided New Zealand to an easy victory over Men in Blue.

Preview: India take on New Zealand at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. India would be looking to bounce back hard after the hammering they received at the hands of Pakistan in their opening match. A crucial half-century from Virat Kohli and a vital hand from Rishabh Pant helped India post a respectable 151/7 after they were reduced to 31/3 inside the powerplay.

A better fight was expected in the bowling department. However, they didn't manage to take a single wicket as Pakistan chased down the target with 13 balls to spare.

The top order will need to step up big time. It's a crucial match for both India and NZ as Pakistan are on the verge of qualifying for the semis with three wins in three. KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders and they need to make sure that the entire burden is not on Kohli. The bowling too needs to be sharp and incisive.

Shami had an off day going for 11.20 runs an over. He would be looking to bounce back hard. The good thing is that Hardik Pandya has started to bowl in the nets and it will be interesting to see whether he bowls in the game and even if he does, then how many overs? It will also be interesting to see if at all India can bring in the in-form Ishan Kishan into the line-up but they will then have to take the tough call of leaving out either Suryakumar or Pandya which seems to be unlikely.

The Rohit Sharma vs Trent Boult battle will be the one to watch out for given Rohit's troubles with the ball coming in from left-arm bowlers.

New Zealand had their own batting problems as they could post just 134/8 against Pakistan in their opening clash. The batsmen got starts but couldn't carry on. The highest score was 27 — made by Daryl Mitchell and Devon Conway. A much better bowling effort is the need of the hour.

The bowlers battled hard to push Pakistan back but couldn't get them past the finish line. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner will be the key.

With both teams looking to go all out in pursuit of a crucial win, we can expect a cracker.
