Ind vs NZ, 2nd T20I: Rahul, Rohit power India to 7-wicket win over New Zealand; seal 3-match series 2-0

KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma powered India to 7-wicket win over New Zealand in the second T20 of the three-match series at JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on November 19. The win also meant India took winning lead in the series 2-0, with one more match to go.

Needing 154 runs to win, India cruised to victory in 17.2 overs (155/3, 16 balls remaining).

Rahul 65 runs (49 balls, 6 fours, 2 sixes) and Rohit 55 runs (36 balls, 1 four, 5 sixes) put on 117 runs for the first wicket in just 80 balls.

Suryakumar Yadav 1 run (2 balls) fell cheaply, however, Rishabh Pant 12 not out (6 balls, 2 sixes) and Venkatesh Iyer 12 not out (11 balls, 2 fours) ensured no more hiccups for India. Rishabh smacked 2 sixes off James Neesham to seal the match for India.

Debutant Harshal Patel was named Player of the Match for his bowling figures of 25/2 in 4 overs.

Earlier, Team India skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited Tim Southee-led New Zealand to bat.

Openers Martin Guptill 31 runs (15 balls, 3 fours, 2 sixes) and Daryl Mitchell 31 runs (28 balls, 3 fours) gave a rollicking start to New Zealand as they put on 48 runs in 4.2 overs. However, New Zealand team lost the plot and the team managed just 153/6 in 20 overs when it was looking good for a score of around 200 runs.

Glenn Phillips 34 runs (21 balls, 1 four, 3 sixes) and Mark Chapman 21 runs (17 balls, 3 fours) were the other batsmen to make major contribution towards Kiwi score.

Ravichandran Ashwin (19/1 off 4 overs), Harshal Patel (25/2 off 4 overs) and Axar Patel (26/1 off 4 overs) were the bowlers who stopped Kiwi team from ending up with a big score.
