India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I in Auckland

India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Preview India Aim To Come Back Stronger After Wellington Drubbing

When is New Zealand vs India taking place? .

# Wicket! Bhuvneshwar gives an early breakthrough to India by removing opener Seifert for 12 runs. Wicketkeeper and opener Tim Seifert performed outstandingly well as he played a blitzkrieg 84-run knock off 43 balls with 7 fours and 6 sixes.

The team could replace Ahmed with either Siddharth Kaul or Mohammad Siraj, who warmed the bench on Wednesday.

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

The players are out in the middle and we are about to get underway with the respective national anthems of the two teams.

After a disappointing ODI series, New Zealand got the three-match T20 series off to the ideal start as they hammered India by 80 runs thanks to a superb all-round display in Wellington. Kuldeep Yadav could be brought in and all-rounder Kedar Jadhav could be given a chance in place of Krunal Pandya or Vijay Shankar. Both the teams remain unchanged.

While it is a must-win game for India, another victory will seal the series for the hosts who were outplayed 1-4 in the preceding ODIs.

# Skipper Kane Williams comes to bat at No.3!

"It was a complete performance that doesn't happen everyday and hope we can keep the momentum through the series having set the tone", he said.

Meanwhile, the unsafe opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings during the first match and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances. Seifert gets off the mark by edging the second ball to the third man for a single before Munro also adds one run to his account with a flick on leg. Bhuvneshwar then conceded one more run from a wide.

Khaleel Ahmed will now bowl the second over of the day.

The short boundaries notwithstanding, New Zealand persisted with two spinners - allrounder Mitchell Santner and legspinner Ish Sodhi.

The 2nd T20i is scheduled to be held on Friday at the Eden Park in Auckland and the extravaganza will commence at around 11:30 am (IST).
