Former India captain MS Dhoni achieved another milestone on Sunday as he became the first Indian cricketer to have made 300 appearances in T20 cricket as the men in blue played New Zealand at Seddon Park In Hamilton. New Zealand rested Lockie Ferguson and handed a debut to right-arm seamer Blair Tickner, while Kuldeep Yadav replaced fellow wristspinner Yuzvendra Chahal for India.

New Zealand beat India by four runs in a thrilling Twenty20 worldwide in Hamilton to take the series 2-1.

Victory for India in Hamilton would end a lengthy, and highly successful, tour of Australia and New Zealand on a high.

The Black Caps ended India's run of 10 Twenty20 worldwide series without a defeat.
