New Zealand beat India by 40 runs in 2nd T-20 worldwide

India are poised for their third T20 global series triumph but would be wary of a strong fightback from the usually plucky New Zealand when the two sides clash in the second game in Rajkot today.

NZ opener Colin Munro, in particular, batted majestically and was unconquered on a truly regal 109 (58 balls, 7x4, 7x6). He became only the third batsman to hit two T20i centuries. India drafted in the debutant Mohammad Siraj in the place of Ashish Nehra who retired from worldwide cricket after the previous game.

He scored 32nd century in ODI in the same match.

Native to New Zealand, kiwis are flightless birds. Kohli recently includes in the list of most valuable player in term of their worth as skipper get ahead of Messi.

After New Zealand's openers had got the tourists off to a flier, the responsibility of stemming the flow of runs fell to India's spin-attack of Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel. Virat Kohli plays for RCB since 2013 and now as a captain. M.S. (Dhoni) was very good at the end. Virat soon got to his 18th fifty in T20i's but the scoreboard pressure got the better off him as he got on 65 runs off 42 balls. The Indian innings ended at 156 for 7 in 20 overs.

Boult ended with 4/34 from his four overs while Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi and Colin Munro snared one-wicket each.
