India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I Dream 11 prediction

Such a result wasn't a surprise - India had not lost back-to-back twenty20 clashes in a series since 2015, and it was always going to be hard for the Black Caps to back up their record win in the series opener.

A strong comeback will be expected from India after the hammering from New Zealand in the series-opener when the two teams square-up in the second T20 worldwide at Eden Park in Auckland on Friday. With whirlwind fifty, Rohit also became the top run-getter in the format, surpassing Martin Guptill.

"Very pleased to see how we bowled, and we were quite clinical with the bat as well", Rohit said in the post-match presentation. The 37 year old remained unbeaten on 20 off 17 balls alongside Rishabh Pant (40 off 28 balls) to steer the visitors to comfortable 7 wicket win with seven balls to spare. The series is now tied 1-1 with the decider in Hamilton on Sunday.

The bowling unit will be led by speedster Tim Southee, who can draw early blood with Scott Kuggeleijn. "Jimmy's impressed us with the bat this summer".

In between, Krunal also got a controversial wicket, that of Daryl Mitchell (1), who fell prey to an umpiring howler, when "Hotspot" showed a clear inside edge onto the pads.

The star-studded Rainy Day , which also stars Elle Fanning and Oscar nominee Jude Law , was supposed to be Allen's follow-up. He also claims Amazon has backed out of three other movies, giving only vague reasoning.

Mitchell and Black Caps captain Kane Williamson, who was at the non-striker's end at the time of the dismissal, both were visibly perplexed by the decision.

Once de Grandhomme was sent back by Hardik Pandya and Taylor was run-out, New Zealand's chances of a big total went up in smoke.

According to ESPNCricinfo, one poster at Auckland's Eden Park - where India pulled off a series-levelling seven-wicket victory on Friday - read "Wake up, NZ Cricket, #MeToo" in reference to an ongoing movement against sexual harassment and consent.

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.

NEW ZEALAND BOWLING: Southee 4-0-34-0, Kuggeleijn 3.5-0-32-0, Ferguson 4-0-31-1, Santner 2-0-16-0, Sodhi 4-0-31-1, Mitchell 1-0-15-1.
