For his unbeaten and match-winning knock of 57 off 50 balls, KL Rahul has been adjudged the Man of the Match. Rahul says that the circumstances were different so he knew what he had to do as it was a different pitch. Tells he needed to adjust as they lost Kohli and Rohit early. Shares that he has always put the team ahead and has luckily come up with the right shot and the right choices.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that they backed up the last win with another good performance, especially with the ball. Tells it was a very good feature of their side as they managed to restrict a very good New Zealand batting lineup to 132. Tells they understood the angle of the field better and says he needed to think a bit as a captain and credits his bowlers for their performance. On whether he is looking to make any changes in the coming games, Kohli says he might not as they have managed to win both the games with the same side and tells that Hamilton has a better ground dynamics than here.
New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson says it was a tough day and the wicket was different. Adds they were 15-20 runs short and credits the Indian players for the way they bowled. Adds that the Indian players showed their experience and did not allow their spinners to trouble them. On being asked if he would bat again, Williamson says maybe a bit better. Tells that they hope to go to Hamilton and assess the conditions better.
Earlier in the day after opting to bat, New Zealand struggled and were restricted to 132 courtesy a brilliant bowling performance from India which was led by Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah. Only Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert showed some fight for the Kiwis.
A valiant effort from the New Zealand bowlers but defending 133 against this batting heavy Indian side was always going to need some taking. They needed something magical but that never came. Southee tried and provided them two early wickets but that was it. Sodhi and Santner were economical but Bennett and Tickner had a tough outing and in the end, they had a very small target to defend.
Chasing 133, India got off to a poor start losing both Rohit and Kohli early but Rahul and Shreyas Iyer steadied the ship and barring some comical running they were just superb in their approach. They took their time and accelerate at ease. Rahul got to his fifty and stayed unbeaten while Iyer felt just 6 short of another fifty and made a mockery of the chase winning with more than 2 overs to spare.
Another day, another chase and another win for the Men in Blue! They have made this a habit of chasing down totals and with this win, they have made it 2-0 in the series.

Ish Sodhi To Shreyas Iyer OUT!
OUT! Caught! Sodhi takes the skier and Iyer departs. A slower one around off, Iyer has to reach out for this one as he looks to launch it over long off. However, he ends up getting a lot of height than distance. Southee from long off moves to his right and does well to pouch the ball with a forward dive. End of Iyer for tonight but he has played an excellent knock once again. 8 more needed off 21 balls. 50th wicket for Sodhi in T20Is.

Hamish Bennett To KL Rahul
Another run out opportunity goes abegging. Poor calling between the two batters. It is a length ball on middle, Rahul tucks it towards mid-wicket. Rahul wants a single but Iyer says no. However, Rahul is on the move already and he has to return. The fielder there picks the ball and fires the throw at the striker's end but misses. Poor from the batters and criminal from the Kiwis as they are in the need of wickets in heaps, if they are to make any comeback in this game. End of an eventful over.

FIVE WIDES! Bennett goes for another short one this time but it is banged way over. Rahul lets it go and the keeper cannot do anything about it either. It sails over him and goes to the fine leg fence.
