Nagpur, Mar 16 : Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has cited lack of application and partnerships as the reasons behind his side's shocking 47-run loss to a spirited New Zealand in the opening group match of the World Twenty20 in Nagpur.

Chasing a modest target of 126, Indian batsmen failed collectively as a unit against New Zealand's spinners and were bundled out for just 79 runs in 18.1 overs, their lowest ever T20 score on home soil.
