Shubman not in the mood to stop for sure
Indian Cricketer Shubman Gill celebrating his maiden century in T20 against Kiwis

This is a series that Kiwis won't forget for a long time. Powered by Gill's maiden T20 hundred, India marched to 234 for 4 in 20 overs- their biggest total against New Zealand in T20, and fifth -biggest overall , after choosing to bat first. Hit by Gill storm, the shocked Kiwis will try to go home back as soon as possible. One can not forget a couple of blinders by Suryakumar Yadav in yesterday match. 

Putting out a clinical, dominating show which saw men in blue clinch the T20 series against the Black caps 2-1, India raced away to a mind- boggling 168- run win on the night- the biggest victory margin in T20 between two full member teams. The upcoming superstar of the Indian batting, follows a ritual every time he hits a hundred. He takes off his helmet, swings it with his hand, and lets out a roar. The wild celebration, the spreading of the hands is concluded with a respectful bow towards all, just like an artist would acknowledge the applause of his latest masterpiece. 

While Gill is a superhero of India's batting, Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav and then skipper Hardik Pandya  all played the supportive role against Kiwis. Gill's sublime, breathtaking strokes left close to a lakh spectators at this stadium spell bound. Gill played Royal drives through the covers and ferocious pulls and pick up shots to mid- wicket and lofted drives down the ground. 

India clinched the T20 series against New Zealand by 2- 1 in a convincing fashion. Captain's Pandya strategy worked and India managed to win the ODI as well as T20 series at homeground against Men in black.
