India continues their good run and beat New Zealand by 6 wickets in the first T20I at Eden Park to take 1-0 lead in the 5 match series. Munro and Taylor with 59 and 54 runs innings guide NZ to post 204 runs target on board. In response, India empowered by KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and a cameo from Shreyas Iyer chased down the target comfortably despite losing Rohit Sharma early. India also registers its 3rd highest run chase in T20I.
