A rare record for India-New Zealand second T20

India- New Zealand second T20 hits a rare record of being the first international T20 match between countries with full membership of the ICC to not produce a single six despite playing more balls. Even though both teams batted in 39.5 overs, not even a single six was hit in the match.

New Zealand, who won the toss and batted first, scored only 99 runs in 20 overs., shocking the fans who were expecting an easy victory and India won with just one ball left in the last over. In the match, the Kiwis scored only six boundaries in their innings. Apart from Finn Allen who hit two boundaries in the power play overs, no one in the Kiwis line-up managed to score more than one boundary.

All the Indian batsmen hit a total of eight boundaries. Apart from Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill who hit two boundaries each, none of them managed to hit more than one boundary. In the Bangladesh- New Zealand T20 in Mirpur in 2021, not even a single six was hit, but both teams faced only 238 balls that day, one ball less than yesterday’s match.
