The Blackcaps speedster made it to the elite list as he joined Lasith Malinga as the only two bowlers to have two hat-tricks in T20Is. It was in the final over of the match when Southee took three wickets in consecutive balls and Pandya, Deepak Hooda, and Washington Sundar were his victims.
For the Indian team, Suryakumar Yadav scored a century in just 49 balls and ended up smashing 111 runs in just 51 balls. The veteran bowler of New Zealand just gave five runs in the over and made sure that India could not get past 200.
