India are yet to beat New Zealand in a T20I in New Zealand, having lost all three they have played in the country to date, and would be looking to keep the series alive going into Hamilton, and give themselves a shot at rounding off their longish summer in the southern hemisphere without a series loss.

Unfortunately for the Kiwi contingent of the 36,961 fans at Eden Park, Rohit Sharma quickly put an end to those hopes, smacking 50 off 29 balls as he passed the injured Martin Guptill to become the highest run-scorer in twenty20 global history.

Vijay Shankar's direct hit from long-on found Ross Taylor short of his crease in the second T20I between New Zealand and India at the Eden Park on Friday.

"They batted really well and we bowled a few loose deliveries as well".

His 50 included four sixes and three fours off 28 balls. Krunal Pandya shone with the ball and picked three wickets to peg back the Kiwis early in their batting effort. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and no. 4 batsman Daryl Mitchell also failed to entertain the crowd as they were removed for 20 and 1 run respectively.

PSG's Cavani leaves pitch injured unlikely to face Man Utd says Tuchel
Yes, it's worrying, it's not a good sign. "We have to rethink everything for Manchester United when players like that get hurt". If we are missing lots of key players, it's an even bigger challenge, but we will be ready on Tuesday, I think".


His dismissal reduced the Black Caps to 43 for three, after neither Tim Seifert nor Colin Munro could repeat their performances from Wellington, and Williamson soon followed, also trapped lbw by Pandya - though there was no doubt with his departure.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed began with tidy opening overs, and in his second the former had Tim Seifert - after a six and four in successive balls - edging to MS Dhoni for 12. With a harried two, de Grandhomme raised his maiden T20I fifty off 27 balls with a harried two and drove the next ball from Hardik straight into cover's lap.

Munro and Williamson got skidders.

The spinners, Ish Sodhi and Santner, too were on top of the Indian batsmen, sharing two wickets apiece.

INDIA: Rohit Sharma c Southee b Sodhi 50 (29b, 3x4, 4x6), Shikhar Dhawan c de Grandhomme b Ferguson 30 (31b, 2x4), Rishabh Pant (not out) 40 (28b, 4x4, 1x6), Vijay Shankar c Southee b Mitchell 14 (8b, 1x4, 1x6), M.S. Dhoni (not out) 20 (17b, 1x4); Extras (lb-1, b-2, w-5): 8; Total (for three wkts.in 18.5 overs): 162.
