Dinesh Karthik's incredible catch at the boundary made many hearts pause, and then go "wow". If Sharma hits six more sixes in the first T20I against New Zealand he will break this record as well.

Daryl Mitchell, son of former All Blacks rugby coach and current England assistant coach John Mitchell, took a wicket on debut. Here's the video going viral on the Internet.

An aggressive 84 by Tim Seifert set up an 80-run win for New Zealand against India in their opening Twenty20 global against India in Wellington on Wednesday. With the crack opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan departing within the Powerplay, the chase became a hard one and India were all out for 139 in 19.2 overs. While chasing 220-run target set by Kiwis, India batsmen were dismissed cheaply with Dhoni being the highest scorer with 39 runs off 31 balls.

Propelled by a brilliant innings from Tim Seifert, New Zealand finished the 20 overs on 219-6.

Coming off a comprehensive 4-1 loss in the one-day series, New Zealand turned the tables in the first T20 with impressive performances with both bat and ball.

With the opening pair of skipper Rohit Sharma (1) and Shikhar Dhawan (29) departing within the powerplay overs, the chase became a hard one and India were all out for 139 in 19.2 overs. "So it was a combination of both".

After making his T20 debut past year, Seifert really announced himself on the global stage last night when he smashed 84 runs off 43 balls as the opener. The fielding was poor as plenty of catches were dropped and the batting was a disaster.

He knocked the daylight out of Indian bowlers in the first T20I with an explosive half-century but opener Tim Seifert says he isn't losing his sleep over his World Cup chances. "It's just that you have to learn from every game", he said.

Chasing a record 220-run target, India stumbled to their biggest Twenty20 worldwide defeat, the 80-run loss arriving in pursuit of a 220-run target at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington.

Their previous worst defeat was by 49 runs against Australia at Bridgetown in 2010. "We failed to get a good partnership".
