2nd T20I: India need 133 to win
Auckland: India need 133 runs to win the 2nd T20I against New Zealand. The Kiwis finished their first innings after scoring 132 for the loss of 5 wickets.
Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert top scored with 33 runs each. The home team found runs hard to come by as the Indian bowlers manintained discipline with their line and length. Ravindra Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers for getting two wickets while giving away only 18 runs in his four overs.
Earlier, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bat in the second of the five-match T20I rubber at Eden Park.
"We are gonna bat. Obviously, it's an used surface and there won't be dew much. We wanna use the surface. It's important that we execute our plans and put up a strong performance," Williamson said at the toss.
Both the teams remained unchanged since the last T20I. The Men in Blue currently lead the rubber 1-0 after winning the first contest by six wickets on Friday.
