New Zealand win by 47 runs

New Zealand have shocked favourites India in the first match of the T20 World Cup Super 10. After a bright start with the ball, the hosts gave themselves a modest target of 127 runs, before capitulating in staggering fashion, losing by 47 runs.

Shikhar Dhawan (1), Suresh Raina (1), Ravindra Jadeja (0) and Ashish Nehra (0) were among the worst offenders as New Zealand's spin bowling wreaked havoc among India's batting order. MS Dhoni (30) could not rescue his side this time.

We are back tomorrow morning [9:30am GMT] when Pakistan take on Bangladesh, with live coverage of that available here.


India record their second lowest total in T20 international when they looked to have done their job with the ball. They have been well and truly humbled in their first match of the Super 10.


New Zealand beat India by 47 runs


WICKET! Nehra (0) b Milne (India 79-9)

In the first ball of the 18th wicket, India are done. Milne lashes another terrific straight down the line, smashing the middle wicket out the ground and bringing an emphatic end to a terrific New Zealand fightback and a woeful India collapse.

WICKET! Dhoni (30) c McCullum b Santner (India 79-9)

Dhoni knew he he had to go for another big one, but he was caught short this time, lifting one high into the sky but comfortably within McCullum's range.


Dhoni whacks another fine four over the fences but....


17th over - India 75-8

A couple of wides follow that eighth wicket . Nehra skews one off to his right but it lands a couple of yards away from Elliot. The end could be nigh.


WICKET! Ashwin (10) st Luke Ronchi b Ish Sodhi (India 73 -8)

Dhoni gets the crowd off his feet with an enormous six but Ashwin follows two balls later after a wonderful delivery from Sodhi for Ronchi to rattle the stumps. What an unstoppable ball from the New Zealand bowler.


16th over - India 66-7

Dhoni goes for a big swing, knowing he needs to step up the run-rate but it sails past his outstretched bat. New Zealand's bowling remains as measured as ever and while Dhoni and Ashwin collect five more singles, it's not going to be enough with four overs to go at this rate.


15th over - India 61-7

Two dot balls in the first two of this over, a trend bucked when Ashwin strokes one down the left side. He just about gets back on the next one, diving across the line as Dhoni secure two more with India finally show a bit of risk-taking.


14th over - India 57-7

Dhoni is made to pick up the pace as he rushes back with Santner looking for the wicket from the field, but he just about makes it. Of Santner's 15 balls thrown, 10 of those have been dot balls, terrific bowling from him that has yielded three of the seven wickets. India are settling for singles here, they need more than that.


13th over - India 53-7

Four more run from Dhoni and Ashwin, all singles. India chase 74 off 42 balls.

New Zealand

New Zealand have responded brilliantly with the ball.


12th over - India 49-7

Three more runs for India, another meagre collection. It's been a real procession for the side regarded as favourites to win this competition, they need 78 to win.


11th over – India 45-7

Ashwin, the latest batsman to enter the fray hits a single outside off stump while Dhoni adds another. It's been another remarkable over from New Zealand who are turning over the favourites here.


WICKET! Jadeja (0) b and c Sodhi (India 43-7)

This is a spectacular collapse from India. Jadeja is gone for a duck after woefully scooping into the inside leg where Sodhi has flung himself to make a catch inches from the ground.


10th over - India 42-6

Just a single run from that 10th over. Not good enough.


WICKET! Pandya (1) lbw by Santner (India 42-6)

This is turning into an absolute disaster for the hosts. Pandya has gone having failed to add to that single scored at the end of the ninth over having been caught lbw by Santner.


India need 86 off 66 balls to win this now.


Ninth over - India 41-5

India finish that ninth wicket with just two more runs and another wicket gone. Pandya rescues a run for himself before it ends.


WICKET Kohli (23) c Luke Ronchi b Sodhi (India 39-5)

Huge blow for India, Kohli has gone after getting the slightest of nicks onto Sodhi's delivery, guiding it into the waiting arms of Ronchi. He took a big risk with that swing and has paid the price.


Eighth over - India 39-4

Elliot has the ball for this over but sends his first delivery skittering wide of Kohli, but he meets the next and finds a gap with a firm single. Dhoni grabs another before Kohlli takes over again, grabbing a two off a Yorker, flicking out wide past Guptill.


Seventh over - India 33-4


Sixth over - India 29-4

India register meagre singles through two from Kohli but it's more measured delivery from New Zealand, who have shown excellent grit to dig deep and give themselves a tremendous chance of overturning this this.


Fifth over - India 26-4

MS Dhoni comes in and India have their two best batsman on the field, albeit a lot earlier than they would have planned for. The skipper prods his first ball to cover as another poor over for the hosts ends.
