From New Zealand, TWM Latham † was the most runs scorer with 39 runs, KS Williamson (c) 27 and MJ Santner also scored 27 not out.
The pitch to be used on Saturday seemed completely devoid of grass in the middle of a lush inexperienced outfield. The tune is known to favour batsmen and more runs may want to be expected for the 2nd T20 too. Rajkot, like Delhi and Kanpur, will proceed to supply the teams with pleasant, early wintry weather conditions. Not so long ago, Taylor’s T20 future was uncertain, but this center order now wishes his experience. He should come in place of fellow Central Districts batsman Tom Bruce. With Ashish Nehra now retired from global cricket, there is one spot up for grabs in Rajkot. India may reflect onconsideration on handing a debut to Hyderabad rapid Mohammed Siraj or pork up their center order through including Manish Pandey or Dinesh Karthik.
