New Delhi, Mar 15: New Zealand stunned hosts India in the opening World Twenty20 game at the VCA Stadium, in Nagpur, today (March 15).
Chasing a modest target of 127, the Indian batting line-up fell like a castle of cards as Men In Blue fell in the spin trap of the BlackCaps.
As India batters were bundled out at 79 in 18 overs, fans took to Twitter to express their angst over shocking defeat of their favourite side.
There were some who criticised the Indian batting for gifting 9 wickets to spinners, all soft dismissals, while there were others who are hopeful of Team India's comeback in the tournament.
Here is what all Twiteratti had to say:
In 2007 WT20, India lost just one match that too against NewZealand and the rest is history..— sreekumarvs (@sreekumarvs123) March 15, 2016
