The Big Picture

The woeful form of their top-order was at the heart of New Zealand's loss in the ODI series. On Wednesday, rookie opener Tim Siefert's swashbuckling 84 was the fillip that the home side needed as they strolled past the Men in Blue to hand them their biggest loss in a T20I [in terms of runs].

Here are all the numbers from India's defeat at Wellington-

80- Biggest defeat for Team India in terms of runs at Wellington. The Men in Blue had never faced a defeat in excess of 50 runs prior to the first T20I.
