  • Krunal Pandya destroys Kiwis, as India win second T20!

As this was a boundary that helped the team record its first-ever T20I win on New Zealand soil.

That double-wicket over from Krunal was followed by a third in second, as Williamson swept a ball that stayed low and was ruled lbw.

Opener Tim Seifert took the Indian bowlers to cleaners with a 43-ball 84 and visitors must have a plan to contain him on Friday.

INDIA: Rohit Sharma c Southee b Sodhi 50 (29b, 3x4, 4x6), Shikhar Dhawan c de Grandhomme b Ferguson 30 (31b, 2x4), Rishabh Pant (not out) 40 (28b, 4x4, 1x6), Vijay Shankar c Southee b Mitchell 14 (8b, 1x4, 1x6), M.S. Dhoni (not out) 20 (17b, 1x4); Extras (lb-1, b-2, w-5): 8; Total (for three wkts.in 18.5 overs): 162.

The lack of fight in the run chase was a big disappointment, as mentioned by captain Rohit Sharma in Wellington.

TV replays clearly showed there was an inside edge and a patch on the hotspot could also be detected when the ball beat Mitchell's bat.

Talking about the match, India sealed a 159-run chase in the penultimate over of the match without much discomfort.

Krunal, Rohit fire India to series-levelling win. But Sodhi had the last laugh when Rohit -after completing his 16th T20I fifty - was holed out in the deep in the deep in the 10th over. Loud and energetic. Gotta love the passion for the Indian team and players that the fans present. They might think of Kuldeep Yadav but it is highly unlikely that Rohit Sharma will tinker with the winning combination.

Krunal Pandya took three for 28 and Khaleel Ahmed finished with figures of two for 27 as the tourists prevented New Zealand from exploiting Eden Park's short boundaries.

India performed well with the ball after New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat, taking early wickets then restricting the Black Caps with some tight bowling to close the innings. With the former India captain (20 no off 17 balls) playing the role of a mentor at the other end, the 44-run stand was very significant as Indian cricket slowly moves towards a change of guard in coming days. United States of America is the only country where they have not won a T20I match yet among countries in which they have played the shortest format.
