Mark Chapman became the first player to score half-century for two countries in the T20Is. Earlier he had done the same for Hong Kong against Oman in 2015. Against India, today Chapman scored 63 for New Zealand. Interestingly his score was same against Oman, unbeaten albeit. Today Chapman was finally dismissed by Ravi Ashwin after smashing six fours and two maximums.
Rohit Sharma played his first T20I as Indian national cricket team captain today and after winning the toss asked New Zealand to bat first in Jaipur. New Zealand had a shaky start. Eventually thanks to Mark Chapman’s 63 and Martin Guptill’s 70, New Zealand set a target of 165 for the hosts.

Mark Chapman was born in Hong Kong to a father hailing from New Zealand. Because of his birth he started his international career with the country in 2014. However, after playing just 19 T20Is and two ODIs for Hong Kong, he started playing for Auckland. His first New Zealand call-up came in early 2018 for a T20 tri-series involving England and Australia. Now he has one half-century for both nations with an ODI century for Hong Kong.
