New Zealand cricketing legend Martin Crowe, who passed away earlier in March 2016, was on Tuesday honoured during the ICC World T20 2016, Super 10 Group 2, Match 13 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur on Tuesday. Crowe, who was undoubtedly considered as the legend of the New Zealand’s cricketing universe, was battling cancer and passed away earlier in March in his sleep, his family said the following day. He was mourned by millions of cricketing fans and legends, not just in New Zealand, but all over the world as he is undoubtedly the father of modern cricket in New Zealand, as they aim to win their maiden World T20 title. Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs New Zealand, ICC World T20 2016, Match 13 at Nagpur

New Zealand won the coin toss and elected to bat first against former champions India, in the ongoing ICC World T20 2016, during Super 10 Group 2, Match 13 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur on Tuesday. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson decided to bat on the Nagpur track, which was eatlier given the verdict of a batting friendly track. However, Indian skipper said that it was a good toss to lose as the track looked like an even track with suppport for both the sides. Nevertheless, Scott Styris during the pitch report said that the track is going to be bowler friendly, as there is quite a lot of grass on the track along with cracks, and the spinners would have a possibly good day out.

India and New Zealand will battle it out in Match 13 of ICC World T20 2016 at Nagpur. This is a Group 2 match, and the first encounter of the Super-10s. India are the favourites going into the tournament, but New Zealand can take immense confidence from the fact that India have never beaten them in a Twenty20 International (T20I). India will be aware of this fact as well, and will doubtless look to remedy that. New Zealand are without Brendon McCullum though, someone who has traditionally done well against India.
