Seifert's dismissal did not reduce the momentum of the New Zealand innings as Munro added another half-century partnership with Kane Williamson.

Grandhomme got out with 10 balls to spare but the final push by Ross Taylor and Daryll Mitchell helped New Zealand post a total of 212 in 20 overs.

Munro smashed 72 (40), including five fours and five sixes, while Seifert hit three fours and three sixes in his 43 (25). In both games whether chasing or batting first, India are stuck in the less than 140-run mark, which is below-par against a top team like New Zealand. After losing his opening partner, Rohit Sharma built a crucial partnership with Vijay Shankar.

Rishabh Pant belted a four and two sixes with his first three scoring shots and raced to 28 off 12 before he became debutant Blair Tickner's first victim, swiping at a full toss that was caught at mid-wicket.

Scott Kuggeleijn took the Black Caps' other wicket - his first of the series.

New Zealand defeated India by four runs in the third and final Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) to clinch the series 2-1 here on Sunday.

"Skipper Rohit Sharma was disappointed that the men in blue could not get the job done".

The 1-2 series defeat was India's first T20I series loss after winning eight and drawing two. With the scoreboard pressure mounting, the two batsmen next, Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya did their best as they scored 18 and 14 runs off the eighteenth and the nineteenth overs respectively.

With the game slipping away from India, Dinish Karthik pounded the boundaries with 33 off 16 deliveries while Krunal Pandya made 26 off 13.

India may have lost the third T20I and the series, but MS Dhoni still managed to win hearts with a gesture after a fan invaded the pitch to touch his feet.
