How & Where to Watch India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I in Rajkot

Mohammed Siraj makes his debut in place of Ashish Nehra. We'll look to get some runs on the board.

Colin Munro played bright cricket, provided value for money to the spectators who had crammed the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium (SCA) at Khanderi Village and led New Zealand to a comfortable win in the second Twenty20 worldwide.

Kane Williamson: We are going to have a bat today.

We look at the two good and bad performances from the match after the Kiwis stormed right back into the series.

Some fine hitting from Colin Munro and a brilliant opening over by Trent Boult have helped steer the Black Caps to a series-tying win against India in this morning's T20 match in Rajkot. "Glenn Philips in for Tom Latham", Williamson said after winning the toss.

The visitors' decision went down well with India captain Virat Kohli, who was wary of the dew and said that his plan was to bowl anyway.

"For me it's just a mind shift thing, not expecting too much of myself at this level or in Twenty20". Ashish Nehra bowed out of worldwide cricket on his home turf with an economical spell of four overs for 29 runs.

Thanks to some excellent bowling from Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit Bumrah, who evoked circumspection from the likes of Guptill and Munro, India was able to keep the New Zealand total under 200.

There has been only one T20I played at this venue previously, which was between India and Australia in 2013.

"This is a belter. There's going to be a lot of fours and sixes" - Sunil Gavaskar. He stayed unbeaten to carry his bat in impressive fashion with a 58-ball 109.

To go with that, Kohli boasts of the highest average (54.06) among all the players who have scored more than 1,000 runs in T20Is. "Boundaries are bigger so the spinners may come into play a little bit more" - Simon Doull.

He reminded us why he is the Black Caps' greatest threat with the ball when he removed Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in his very first over.

New Zealand (Playing XI): Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Tom Bruce, Glenn Phillips (w), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult.
