In this trip, New Zealand has finally achieved a victory. After losing the ODI series, their replacement skipper Mitchell Santner took the helm with the ball to offer his team a chance to win the T20I series. They got off to a good start thanks to Finn Allen, and their bowlers hit with the new ball, which were factors that had not been working throughout the ODIs.
