India gave a tough time to the hosts in the T20Is whitewashing them to clinch their maiden T20I series victory in NZ. However, the Blackcaps didn’t sit quiet and gave the visitors the taste of their own medicine in the ODIs, clinching the series 3-0. However, the majestic comeback of New Zealand wasn’t the only thing that made round after the series concluded. A lot of stats were changed, and a lot many new ones were created.
