KL Rahul remained unbeaten on 57 as India defeated New Zealand by seven wickets in the second T20I in Auckland on Sunday to give the visitors a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Chasing 133 for the win, India lost Rohit Sharma in the first over as Tim Southee removed the Indian opener. KL Rahul then steadied the innings with captain Virat Kohli but Tim Southee struck again to send back Kohli in the sixth over. Shreyas Iyer then joined KL Rahul in the middle and the duo put on 86 runs for the third wicket. Iyer perished while trying to clear the boundary with India needing eight for the win. Shivam Dube, who walked out to bat at number five, finished the game with a six. Earlier, Indian bowlers led by Ravindra Jadeja managed to restrict New Zealand to a below-par total of 132 for five. (SCORECARD)
