The Black Caps on Sunday, February 2 lost their fifth consecutive T20 match against India, giving the guests a clean sweep of 5-0 despite some brilliant efforts. 

The Black Caps scored to 156 losing nine wickets in 20 overs at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui in their bid to chase 165.

The two sixes off the last over from Ish Sodhi did bring a few sighs of hope that might by some miracle give New Zealand a much needed and desperate win but a brilliant spell by Shardul Thakur restricted the hosts to 156 losing the match by 7 runs. 

More to come.
