The Hardik Pandya-led team also became the first team in the history of the game to earn 50 T20I series wins at home with what was the second-biggest victory for a team in T20Is (for Test playing nations) and the most against a Test playing nation. With the 2-1 victory, India's cricket team reached a milestone of 50 home T20I series victories.
Shubman Gill scored his first century in the format, helping India get off to a great start. In the process, Gill achieved a feat few other players in the game had: centuries in all three game styles. At Ahmedabad's largest cricket stadium, India decided to bat first, and Gill guided the side to 234-4, scoring his first T20 century for India. Indian bowlers defeated the New Zealanders for a pitiful 66 in 12.1 overs to win the series 2-1. In three one-day games, the hosts completely destroyed the New Zealanders.
