India vs NZ 1st T20: Dinesh Karthik's incredible catch at the boundary (Watch Video)
Wellington : Dinesh Karthik never misses a chance to throw himself completely on the demands of the cricket game. He proved it for one more time with an incredible catch he took during the first T20 match vs New Zealand in Wellington.

However, Team India failed to claim a victory in the game and faced 80 run defeat. Tim Seifert played an impressive 84-run knock and Tim Southee claimed three wickets to give New Zealand 1-0 lead in the series. MS Dhoni top-scored for India with 39 runs off 31 balls, while no other batsman managed to impress much with the willow.
This was also the first time when India had to face defeat by more than 50 runs. India's previous worst was a 49-run loss to Australia back in 2010. "We failed to get a good partnership. 200 was never going to be easy to chase," said Rohit in the post-match presentation.
