Meanwhile, It was the Indian team who displayed a brilliant brand of cricket in the second T20 International. Playing at the Bay Oval under the leadership of a young Hardik Pandya, India cruised to a stunning victory by 65 runs. Suryakumar Yadav was the lone warrior for the team with the bat in the first innings. His terrific century propelled the visitors to a mammoth score of 191 runs.
In the second innings, Indian bowlers carried the momentum forward as they gave no chances to the Blackcaps to make a comeback.
