After India got thrashed in the opening T20I, the visitors will be looking to bounce back in the second match and level the three-match series at Eden Park in Auckland on Friday.
Rohit Sharma’s side went down in the first T20I in Wellington by 80 runs to register their biggest T20I loss in terms of runs. India have a day to recover – physically and mentally – for the second T20I, with just a day separating the two games.
India failed to make a difference in all the three departments on Wednesday. Tim Seifert gave a tough time to the India bowlers with his 43-ball 84 as the hosts posted 219. Spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner too were on top of the Indian batsmen, sharing two wickets apiece.
