2nd T20I, New Zealand v India Twenty20 Series 2019, 8 Feb 2019
India won by 7 wickets
BALL BY BALL
India have beaten New Zealand by 7 wickets at Eden Park to square the T20I series at 1-1. The tourists were much improved in all facets from their performance in Wellington, however it was their bowlers who set up this victory by limiting the in-form Kiwi batsmen. Krunal Pandya removed three dangerous players with his wily spin, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar nailed his yorkers after finding lots of swing early. In the runchase, Rohit Sharma set the tone with a brutal half century before Rishabh Pant finished the job in style. The Black Caps weren't quite at their best in Auckland today, despite a counter-attacking maiden T20I fifty from Colin de Grandhomme and a fiery spell from Lockie Ferguson. That means we are set up nicely for the decider in Hamilton on Sunday. .
