Thiruvananthapuram’s Greenfield International Stadium had a short international debut, but it was a sweet one as India won the rain-marred eight-over shootout on Tuesday (November 7) to take the Twenty20 International series against New Zealand 2-1.

In a game where the overall run-rate was eight, not a single batsman could cross 17 as the bowlers took full advantage of the dampness in the surface.

Another chapter in the Virender Sehwag-Ross Taylor banter.

The ground staff did a stupendous job, and a patient crowd got its money’s worth.

A valid point

Head and shoulders above the rest? You bet.

A fair shout, this

Stunner Santner! He couldn’t catch a cold earlier in the series, but in the decider, he was on fire.

Can cricket take a leaf out of football’s book of rules?

Major relationship lessons from Santner and Colin de Grandhomme.

How about this from Rohit Sharma, which stunned his captain too?

Hardik Pandya’s direct hit, and the scales tilt in India’s favour. 24

Yuzvendra Chahal produced a sensational three-run sixth over to take the sting out of the chase.

Remember the name? With 19 runs to get off the last over, the Kiwis needed a Carlos Brathwaite of their own.

Jasprit Bumrah and Chahal were India’s miserly twins, conceding just 17 runs in four overs combined.

Bumrah is certainly the man of the moment

MS Dhoni was at his sparkling best behind the stumps.

A possible rule amendment for the ICC?

India set one record straight.

And, Jassi Jaisa koi nahi. A good shout by Bhajji
