India defeated New Zealand in the second T20I by margin of six wickets in a tricky run-chase and levelled the series 1-1 at Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow. The action now moves to the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad where both the teams will lock horns for one last time in the series decider.

Speaking about how the second game panned out, New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat first in the pitch that assisted more for spinners. Top order batters did not live up to expectations as they fell cheaply due to poor shot selections. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals in the middle overs as the brilliant spells from Indian spinners restricted NZ to 99/8 in 20 overs. Mitchell Santner (19) was the top scorer for the visitors.

In response, Indian batters succumbed to spin dominance of New Zealand in the first half of their batting, as they were in trouble at 50/3 inside 11 overs. Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya put up a fight with cautious batting as they took the game deep to ensure the team got over the line.
