The win was India’s first T20I win in the New Zealand as India’s two leading wicket-keeper batsmen took the visiting side to victory. The duo which is namely of Dhoni and Pant was quite a unique combination. One of them superbly experienced in every aspect of cricket while the other is a growing new talent. With such contradictory combination, the duo seemed to have kicked off really well.

Harbhajan grabbed every opportunity to praise the young skillfully talented Pant. He clearly stated that he has budding qualities of a great batsman which would be beneficial for him to be included in the World Cup. If he keeps scoring so well and plays in the composed manner understanding the current situation and pressure, it will take Pant a long way.

The bowlers were on point and did their job perfectly.
