Recent Match Report - New Zealand vs India 2nd T20I 2019

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

Rohit with 2,288 runs, overtook Martin Guptill, who has 2,272 runs, to become the leading run-scorer in the shortest format of the game and broke several other records during his knock. Pant who came in to bat at no. 3 finished with 40 runs off 28 balls.

His team dominated New Zealand with bat and ball to avenge an 80-run loss in the opening fixture in Wellington - India's heaviest ever T20 defeat.

Mitchell, who made his debut in the first T20 in Wellington, was at the centre of a massive DRS controversy during the second game in Auckland.

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.

The unsafe opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances.

He himself would like to lead from the front after scoring 1 on Wednesday and a significant contribution will also be expected from Rishabh Pant, who is in the running for a World Cup berth.

The final match of the series is at Hamilton on Sunday.

The young Indian bowling has been tested but the likes of Krunal Pandya and Khaleel Ahmed's performances so far will give the team management some assurance.

Ross Taylor was forced to run singles as the hit-me balls dried up and de Grandhomme was also slowed down.

The hosts were looking shaky at 50 for four before Colin de Grandhomme lifted the pace, hitting a maiden T20 half century off 27 balls that included four sixes. A terrific direct hit from the deep by Vijay Shankar ran out Taylor for 42 off the last ball of the 19th over to add to India's excellent effort in the field.

The second India vs New Zealand T20I is being telecast on Star Sports Network. U.S. is the only country where they have not won a T20I match yet among countries in which they have played the shortest format. The Indian side beat Kiwis in the 2 T20 to level 3-match T20 series 1-1.

New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell was given out lbw on the field to Krunal Pandya and the decision was upheld by TV umpire Shaun Haig despite HotSpot indicating the batsman had inside-edged onto his pad.
