NZ WON : India Vs New Zealand 3rd T20

In the 2nd encounter of the 3-match T20i series between India vs New Zealand at the Eden Park in Auckland, Rohit Sharma and men crushed the Kiwis by 7 wickets and levelled the series by 1-1.

Pant scored the winning boundary off the second-last ball of the 19th over by Scott Kuggeleijn as India chased down the target with seven balls to spare. India was bundled out for a paltry 202, with Rohit Sharma scoring 72 runs.Neil Wagner was the star with the ball as he claimed 4/64.

However, Sharma, who is standing in as captain while Virat Kohli is rested, was more interested in focusing on India's performance than his individual achievements. 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.

But the hosts could not break the shackles and tight bowling at the end of the innings prevented them from taking advantage of Eden Park's short boundaries.

India had no such problem in reply, making a flying start with Sharma leading the way.

There was ample support from Shikhar Dhawan, who made 30, and Rishabh Pant on 40 as India made 162 for three without looking troubled.
