New Zealand opener Martin Guptill was dismissed for mere six by off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, after being trapped leg-before, 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. It was a straight ball by Ashwin, almost a good length one, as Guptill went for a sweep towards the leg side, but hit the pad, as the umpire raised the finger, while the replays showed the ball was going over the stumps. Currently, New Zealand are 13 for the loss of a wicket in one over, with opener Kane Williamson on seven, and Colin Munroe coming in.

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.

Regardless of what happens in the match, one can expect a high-octane encounter to kick off the Super-10s. India start the match as favourites, but New Zealand are likely to be close contenders. These two teams could be the semi-finalists from Group 2, which makes this a potential precursor to the ICC World T20 2016 final.
