New Zealand vs India - Highlights & Stats

India vs New Zealand 2nd T20: Rohit Sharma and men outclass Kiwis by 7 wickets, level series by 1-1

Team India, who was outclassed by the BlackCaps in the 1st T20i by a huge margin of 80 runs, today avenged the last match defeat and revoked the chances of winning the short over format series.

However, it was all too easy for the visitor, which restricted New Zealand to 158 for eight, and chased it down comfortably, with seven balls to spare.

Sharma, who is standing in as captain while Virat Kohli is rested, had demanded greater consistency ahead of the match.

His dismissal reduced the Black Caps to 43 for three, after neither Tim Seifert nor Colin Munro could repeat their performances from Wellington, and Williamson soon followed, also trapped lbw by Pandya - though there was no doubt with his departure.

India had no such problem in reply, making a flying start with Sharma leading the way.

India have gone in with an unchanged XI in both the games so far with skipper Rohit Sharma insisting that it is important to give the players some game time.

The third and final match of the T20I series will be played in Hamilton on Sunday.




2nd T20I preview: A strong comeback will be expected from India after the hammering from New Zealand in the series-opener when the two teams square-up in the second T20 global at Eden Park here on Friday.

New Zealand, on the other hand, would not be happy with their inconsistent batting performances throughout the Indian series.

INDIA BOWLING: Bhuvneshwar 4-0-29-1, Khaleel 4-0-27-2, Hardik 4-0-36-1, Krunal 4-0-28-3, Chahal 4-0-37-0.

De Grandhomme miscued the ball straight to Rohit Sharma after reaching the milestone, ending a 77-run partnership with Ross Taylor which was the highlight of the New Zealand innings.

Taylor departed on 42 after a superb run out from Vijay Shankar, who made a direct hit on the stumps after firing the ball in from deep in the outfield.

"As a team, we have been good at chasing down targets which is why we play with eight batsmen". It was India's first T20I at the Eden Park and the Indian team was just brilliant throughout. They came into this game to win and that's what they ended the game with.

"That doesn't happen every day but hopefully we can keep making strides in that direction", he said.
