Visitors need 159 runs to level series

Mitchell, who made his debut in the first T20 in Wellington, was at the centre of a massive DRS controversy during the second game in Auckland.

Unfortunately for the Kiwi contingent of the 36,961 fans at Eden Park, Rohit Sharma quickly put an end to those hopes, smacking 50 off 29 balls as he passed the injured Martin Guptill to become the highest run-scorer in twenty20 global history.

His 50 - part of a 79-run opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan - included four sixes and three fours off 28 balls.

India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20i was an extravaganza as Indian bowlers restricted the hosts for a low total of 158 runs and scalped their 8 wickets in the respected 20 overs.

"The team could also try pairing Krunal Pandya with other experienced spinners in the squad for the remaining matches". The series is level at 1-1 and gives India a historic chance to win a T20 series against New Zealand in their own backyard.

It was a much-improved performance by the Indian bowlers with Bhuvneshwar Kumar removing Tim Seifert (12) in the third over inducing an inside edge to Dhoni behind the stumps. For the record, New Zealand have lost four of their last five T20Is at Eden Park. Mitchell seemed to have missed the ball while trying to work it on the leg side.

That was not the end of the matter though, with Williamson throwing his hands in the air in complaint and Mitchell delaying his exit, leaving the on-field umpires to discuss.

That double-wicket over from Krunal was followed by a third in second, as Williamson swept a ball that stayed low and was ruled lbw.

Ross Taylor was forced to run singles as the hit-me balls dried up and de Grandhomme was also slowed down.

Hardik spilled a diving catch at long-on to allow Scott Kuggeleijm first ball, but Khaleel bowled Mitchell Santner and Tim Southee to end the innings superbly. A terrific direct hit from the deep by Vijay Shankar ran out Taylor for 42 off the last ball of the 19th over to add to India's excellent effort in the field.
