In the format he loves, the New Zealand opener, on his way to a century, aced a test he had failed earlier in the tour
Virat Kohli became the first Indian to complete 7000 runs in T20s in addition to becoming the second-highest scorer in T20Is
The opener scorched his way to a 54-ball hundred - his second in T20Is this year - to break India and force the series into a decider in Thiruvananthapuram
The 25-year old has been able to stifle batsmen even as dangerous as MS Dhoni, at a time when fingerspin is starting to lose ground in one-day cricket
The visitors need to bulk up their middle order and tighten fielding if they are to avoid losing their first T20I series to India in Rajkot
No. of 100s for Colin Munro in T20Is, both coming this year. He's the first batsman to score 2 100s in a year and overall the 4th to score multiple T20I 100s.
Runs conceded by Mohammad Siraj today - the third-most by a bowler on his T20I debut. James Anderson had given 64 runs and Joginder Sharma 57.
This is the first time NZ have had a 50+ opening stand on this tour, in 5 matches. They had averaged 29.50 in the first 4 games.
