NZ vs IND, 2nd T20I, New Zealand v India Twenty20 Series 2020, 26 Jan 2020
IND won by 7 wickets
BALL BY BALL
Finished in style. Dube hangs back in the crease, and flat-bats this over long on for a maximum. India cruise to victory. A magnificent performance from the visitors. They set the game up with their bowling, and timed the run chase superbly. Lokesh Rahul and Shreyas Iyer were the stars with the bat, and just took the game away from New Zealand. A lot to think about for the Kiwis, as they have been outplayed in these first two games. The next match in this five match series is on Wednesday, where the hosts have to win to prevent India from taking an unassailable lead.

That's a super grab by Tim Southee. Iyer wanted to finish this in a hurry, and put another one out of the park. Sodhi tosses it up high, it grips, and that results in the miscue. The ball goes extremely high, but Southee has a solid pair of hands. Swallowed in the deep.
16.3 - I Sodhi to S Iyer
Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Southee.

Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs.
16.1 - I Sodhi to L Rahul
