BLACKCAPS v India Twenty20 statistics and facts

New Zealand maintained their 100 per cent record against India by winning the second match at Chennai by the narrowest of margins, one run.
    
This is the second occasion that the BLACKCAPS have won by one run, having beaten Pakistan by the same margin at Bridgetown during the 2010 World Cup.  

New Zealand has now played fifty three matches winning twenty five, losing twenty five with three matches tied. Of the tied matches New Zealand went on to win the tie breaker in two of them. 
          
Brendon McCullum continued his impressive record against India. In the four matches against them he has scores of 45, 56 not out, 69 not out and now 91. He is the only BLACKCAPS batsman to have reached fifty against India. 
    
McCullum has now scored four of the highest six scores for the BLACKCAPS in Twenty20 internationals. He has scored the only century, while his innings in Chennai was equal second best with Martin Guptill's innings of 91 against Zimbabwe in Auckland back in February. 
   
Virat Kohli recorded the highest score for India against the BLACKCAPS when scoring 70. He is the third Indian batsman to have scored a fifty in his first match against the BLACKCAPS.  
     
The ninety run partnership between McCullum and Kane Williamson was the best for New Zealand against India and the seventh highest for the BLACKCAPS in all Twenty20 matches. McCullum has now been involved in seven of New Zealand's ten highest partnerships and twenty six of the forty partnerships of fifty or more.  
      
James Franklin was called upon to bowl four overs on the trot at the end of India's innings after Kyle Mills left the field injured. This is just the third occasion in twenty four matches that Franklin has bowled his full complement of four overs. The last time he bowled four overs was when he achieved his career-best three for 23 against Sri Lanka in just his third match on Boxing Day 2006.

  
The first match at Visakhapatnam was the first Twenty20 international involving New Zealand to be abandoned without a ball bowled.
