New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert took India bowlers to the cleaners during the first T20i between the two sides on Wednesday in Wellington.

Tim Seifert's blistering 84 off 43 balls.

Seifert's efforts, backed up by Colin Munro (34) and Kane Williamson (34), helped the Black Caps to post 219-6 from their 20 overs before India were bowled out for 139, debutant Daryl Mitchell taking the final wicket in the last over of the match. India's previous worst was a 49-run loss to Australia back in 2010. "We have chased targets of 200 (plus) before and that´s probably the reason we played with eight batsmen".

Seifert and Colin Munro blazed away at the top of the innings as New Zealand, looking to bounce back after being outplayed in the recent one-day global series, posted their third highest Twenty20 total of 219.

Seifert had a life on 71 when dropped on the boundary by Dinesh Karthik and added a further 13 runs before he was bowled by Khaleel Ahmed. They had some luck - there's always some luck in this format - but Seifert was in fine form, picking up anything that drifted into his pads on his way to seven fours and six sixes.

Faced with batting at 11 an over, India faltered from the start when Sharma went for one.

MS Dhoni (39) and Krunal Pandya (20) arrested the slide with a 52-run partnership before the last three wickets fell for 10 runs.

Tim Southee led the way in what was a strong all-round Black Caps bowling and fielding effort, the seamer taking 3-17 from his four after being left out for all but one of the five one-dayers.

Once again living upto the billing of India's numero uno all-rounder at the moment, Hardik can win India the match both with the bat and ball in hand.

The second T20 in the three-match series is in Auckland on Friday.
