Rohit & Records Rule Twitter While India Go Back to Winning Ways

India are already 1-0 down in the three-match T20I series after a drubbing in the series-opener. The Kiwi batsmen completed the first run quickly and dashed off for the second.

India will be looking to add another trophy to their cabinet when they play the last T20I against New Zealand in Hamilton on Sunday.

"I'm very pleased with how we bowled and then we were quite clinical with the bat as well", he said. "It was slightly more tricky to bat, but 20 more runs at the death would have been better", said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.

His 50 included four sixes and three fours off 28 balls. Mitchell was given out LBW off the bowling of Krunal Pandya for one in the sixth over, to leave the Black Caps in trouble at 43-3.

It was a much-improved performance by the Indian bowlers with Bhuvneshwar Kumar removing Tim Seifert (12) in the third over inducing an inside edge to Dhoni behind the stumps.

Once de Grandhomme was sent back by Hardik Pandya and Taylor was run-out, New Zealand's chances of a big total went up in smoke.

However, it was Krunal, who really applied the brakes after being brought in inside the Power Play overs.

After a 79-run opening partnership between captain Sharma and his partner Dhawan (30), it was the wicket-keeper batsman-duo of Dhoni and Rishabh Pant who stitched together a 44-run partnership to win the match for India.

Probable playing XI for New Zealand: Tim Seifert (WK), Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (C), Daryl Mitchell, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell, Tim Southee, Scott Kuggeleijn and Ish Sodhi. Kiwis won the toss and made a decision to bat first only to face the attack of Krunal Pandya who dismissed the top order of the team Munro (12), skipper Kane Williamson (20) and Mitchell (1), while Bhuvaneshwar Kumar scalped the wicket of Seifert (12), as Kiwis were reeling at 4/50.

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.
