Martin Guptill feels it got difficult for New Zealand to score off Jasprit Bumrah in the death overs coupled with the sluggish wicket at Eden Park, as they lost by seven wickets in the second T20 international here on Sunday.
Guptill scored 33 off 20 balls but Indian bowlers kept them in check as they could manage 132/5 which India chased down in 17.3 overs.
“Lot of swing and misses. We were trying but we were facing one of the best death bowlers in the world (Jasprit Bumrah). It is tough to get him away at the end.” The opener felt that India once again out-batted them on a difficult track,” Guptill told reporters after the match.
