Watch highlights of New Zealand's shock win

Highlights: NZ embarrass hosts India

But that's it from us for today. The Super 10 stage of the World 10 has started with a bang. The hosts and favourites have been humbled.

Join us tomorrow for the start of England's campaign.

Coming up

That's the late game tomorrow (14:00 GMT), with Pakistan v Bangladesh getting us under way at 09:30. Pakistan women also play their West Indian counterparts.

So we've seen one embarrassing collapse already in the World T20, how many more might we see, especially if the pitches turn as that one in Nagpur?

On a completely unrelated note, England open up their campaign against West Indies tomorrow... 

You know those highlights I mentioned? Here's one to wet your whistle, the moment that Adam Milne bowled Ashish Nehra to seal victory for New Zealand.

Darren Hawkins: After claiming they're gonna dominate the WT20, seeing India do their best England batting impression was priceless.

"MS Dhoni gave it the best he could today, but there was no-one really to work with him. One or two more partnerships and maybe India could have got over the line."

More from India captain MS Dhoni: "They definitely exploited the conditions and bowled well but we lacked adaptability."

On the blow he took to his thumb: "Ah, I think it will be fine."

'The batting let us down'

India captain MS Dhoni: "It was a low-scoring wicket definitely but I thought we'd restricted them to a good total. 

"It was the batting that let us down. There were quite a few soft dismissals. Maybe with the shot selections we kept putting pressure on and there was no partnership in the middle, we were quite down when it came to the run rate."

More from Kane Williamson: "It was tough to leave out Boult and Southee, but we have to adapt to the conditions. The spinners paid off today, which was very pleasing."

Williamson praises 'outstanding' bowlers

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: "I'm obviously very pleased. It was a tough surface. Whatever score we got we knew it would be tough to chase, but we still would have liked a few more. The way we bowled was outstanding.

"Perhaps we'll reflect on how aggressive we were and do that better next time."

Hats off to the NZ selectors. Dropping Boult and Southee looked bold, but they'd read the conditions expertly. And winning the toss helped.

Don't forget you can watch India's capitulation right now at the top of this page. We'll have in-play highlights of every match during this World T20.

'Our spinners got us the win'

New Zealand pace bowler Adam Milne: "There was a lot of spin out there and we thought maybe 120 was a bit below par but fair play to our spinners, they stuck at it and got us the win. 

"We knew this would be tough, and starting those partnership was hard, but we knew we had to relax if there were a few dot balls, and in the end 126 proved enough."

Alice Stainer: Amazing guile, nerve & gumption from #NZundefined in that match! How many folk besides themselves would have given them a chance? #WT20

Francis Edwards: That's massive. Although both major nations that is an absolutely massive shock! It wasn't a close game in the end...

"Corey Anderson's innings was really gutsy. New Zealand were two down when he came in and had they lost another in the powerplay it could have led to a rollover, but he saw them through. India didn't have that person who set those foundations."

Irfan Raja: India being demolished by a weak NZ team today. I think the rest of the teams in the group will be relishing their chances against them.  

India can take a tiny crumb of comfort from the fact that not one of the previous five World T20 champions have gone through the tournament unbeaten. Trouble is, one more defeat could well put them out, and matches against Australia, Pakistan and Bangladesh will all be tough.

And the votes are in...

Earlier on today we asked you: Who will win the World Twenty20?

India came out on top with 32%, England are second with 26% and Australia third with 14%. New Zealand picked up 5%...

Anyone feel like changing their mind?

The astro turf pitch with cigarette burns on a length at my old school was a better than that wicket #WT20

"India 100% knew what was coming. They saw how the wicket was turning themselves. Maybe  they came into this feeling they were on auto-pilot - that it's all been clicking for them. Maybe they just got into the flow of looking down the line-up and assuming someone is going to produce. Nobody stood up today."
