Here's How Team India Paid Tribute to Retiring Ashish Nehra

Pakistan reached the top rank with their tally of 124 points in such a scenario with New Zealand slipping to the second position with 121 points. This was India's first win against the Kiwis in six T20 outings. I must be one bowler who bowled the most number of last overs for India, but it was different sort of pressure and today was much more comfortable.

As India's old-timer paceman Ashish Nehra is set to bid adieu to the worldwide cricket in the T20I against India at his home ground Feroz Shah Kotla, captain Virat Kohli hailed the 38-year-old calling him a "great servant for Indian cricket".

It was a stunner from Pandya, who sprinted from long-off into what looked like a no man's land and pulled off the unbelievable catch with a full-length dive and outstretched hands, and a slide that continued for a while even after the ball was in his safe hands.

Right from the outset, it was India that dictated the ebb and flow of the game.

The credit for Guptill's dismissal went to Hardik Pandya's quick reflexes, latching on to a superb running catch at long-off off leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

Earlier, at the toss, India skipper Virat Kohli also paid tribute to the seamer whose 18-year-old global career was characterised by many injuries and many comebacks.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

Wicket keeper batsman Tom Latham was the highest scorer for New Zealand with 39 from 36 balls. The packed crowd at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium was treated to some delightful - as well as unorthodox - cricketing shots by Dhawan and Rohit. Also, the boundaries are short at this venue so we can expect a lot of fours and sixes from both the team.

"I last played Test cricket when I was 24 or 25, but at the end, to have played for 18 years and to be here standing in blue clothing and to have played my final match, I could not have asked for anything more".

One ball later, Axar dismissed Colin de Grandhomme (0) as the Kiwis found themselves tottering at a precarious 84/5 after 13 overs.

Sharma made 80 from 55 balls. He has been a great servant for Indian cricket.

The highlight for the visitors was Ish Sodhi's final over, the 17th. The left-hander then hit Southee over the midwicket for another maximum.
