  Commentary

  • So, that's all from us. We will be back with our coverage when the two sides will meet in Thiruvananthapuram for the decider. Till, have a great time.

  • Here is Rishad's match report:

  • Munro bulldozes New Zealand to victory

    Visiting side draw level in second T20I with Kohli fighting a lone battle in Indias chase

  • Colin Munro (MoM): A few chances went my way but that's the T20 cricket. You need to ride your luck. A new role for me at the top of the order. I think the way I bat it's same every time. Try and hit the ball for four and six and get off the strike if it's not there and it came off today.

  • Kane Williamson: I guess a contrasting performance from the last game. We needed to play well to beat this side and we were able to do this today. A fantastic hundred from Munro. Guptill at the top and then Tom Bruce got a nice hand as well. Like I said, contrasting performances. Our two spinners are pretty experienced in this format and they bowled really well.

  • Player of the match - Colin Munro

  • Virat Kohli: I thought New Zealand really batted well but thanks to Bumrah and Bhuvi for showing the experience and pulling the things back. But probably we were not good enough with the bat. When you are chasing 200, all the batsmen need to chip in or one guy needs to go with a strike-rate of 200 throughout. MS did well towards the end. We back Hardik, he has done the job us for many times. MS has proven himself time and again. To be very honest, after 13-14 overs the ball started ripping. But no excuses. Probably not good enough on the day.

  • So, that's the game for New Zealand. A complete performance, both with the bat as well as with the ball. First, Colin Munro (109*) registered his highest T20I score, going past his previous best of 101, as New Zealand posted 196 for 2 from their 20 overs. And then Trent Boult rocked the chase by sending Shikhar Dhawan (1) and Rohit Sharma (5) back to the pavilion in his first over. Virat Kohli kept India in the hunt for a while with a brilliant 65 off 42 but the run-rate kept rising. Ish Sodhi bowled brilliantly, just giving 25 off his four overs and bamboozling Hardik Pandya with a googly. Boult returned back to pick two more towards the end of the innings and registered figures of 4 for 34 -- his best in the format -- as India fell short by 40 runs.

  Full commentary

  • And the problem has been sorted.

  • Flood Light Failure

  • Well, the start of India's innings has been delayed due to a floodlight failure. We will keep you posted.

  • So, 196 from the 20 overs. A brilliant century from Colin Munro - 109* off 58. Martin Guptill scored 45 off 41. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave just 52 off their combined eight overs. Others 142 off 12. Although the pitch is still good for batting, it won't be an easy chase for India. We will back in 15 minutes. Stay tuned.

  • The sun is rising for Hyderabad boys Siraj and Agarwal

    Both 22 year olds are talented prospects for whom playing for their home franchise in the IPL makes the dream sweeter

  • Virat Kohli: We wanted to bowl first anyway. So not the bad thing to lose the toss. They could have their plans. Also, this is an opportunity for us to do well and restrict them. It's a brilliant track to bat on throughout both the innings. Only one change. Mohammed Siraj comes on for Ashish Nehra.

  • Kane Williamson: We are gonna bat first today. Looks like a good surface. We will try to get the score on the board and come out strong to defend it. We've made two changes. Matt Henry in for Tim Southee, and Glenn Philips in for Tom Latham.

  • New Zealand Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Rajkot has always been a high-scoring ground and if the pitch report is anything to go by, this is once again going to be a belter of a wicket. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj will be making his T20I debut.

  • Here's Rishad D'Souza's preview:

  • Onus on New Zealand to keep series alive

    After a dominant performance in the first T20I India will back themselves to maintain their hold on the visiting side

  • Hello and welcome to the second twenty20 International between India and New Zealand in Rajkot. India won the first game by a margin of 53 runs, which means New Zealand will have to win this match in order to keep the series alive.

  Full commentary

  • So, that's all from us. We will be back with our coverage when the two sides will meet in Thiruvananthapuram for the decider. Till, have a great time.

  • Here is Rishad's match report:

  • Munro bulldozes New Zealand to victory

    Visiting side draw level in second T20I with Kohli fighting a lone battle in Indias chase

  • Colin Munro (MoM): A few chances went my way but that's the T20 cricket. You need to ride your luck. A new role for me at the top of the order. I think the way I bat it's same every time. Try and hit the ball for four and six and get off the strike if it's not there and it came off today.

  • Kane Williamson: I guess a contrasting performance from the last game. We needed to play well to beat this side and we were able to do this today. A fantastic hundred from Munro. Guptill at the top and then Tom Bruce got a nice hand as well. Like I said, contrasting performances. Our two spinners are pretty experienced in this format and they bowled really well.

  • Player of the match - Colin Munro

  • Virat Kohli: I thought New Zealand really batted well but thanks to Bumrah and Bhuvi for showing the experience and pulling the things back. But probably we were not good enough with the bat. When you are chasing 200, all the batsmen need to chip in or one guy needs to go with a strike-rate of 200 throughout. MS did well towards the end. We back Hardik, he has done the job us for many times. MS has proven himself time and again. To be very honest, after 13-14 overs the ball started ripping. But no excuses. Probably not good enough on the day.

  • So, that's the game for New Zealand. A complete performance, both with the bat as well as with the ball. First, Colin Munro (109*) registered his highest T20I score, going past his previous best of 101, as New Zealand posted 196 for 2 from their 20 overs. And then Trent Boult rocked the chase by sending Shikhar Dhawan (1) and Rohit Sharma (5) back to the pavilion in his first over. Virat Kohli kept India in the hunt for a while with a brilliant 65 off 42 but the run-rate kept rising. Ish Sodhi bowled brilliantly, just giving 25 off his four overs and bamboozling Hardik Pandya with a googly. Boult returned back to pick two more towards the end of the innings and registered figures of 4 for 34 -- his best in the format -- as India fell short by 40 runs.
