NZ WON : India Vs New Zealand 3rd T20”

India outplayed New Zealand by seven wickets in the second Twenty20 global in Auckland on Friday.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni watched from the 22 yards distance as his heir apparent Rishabh Pant showed spunk in a tricky situation, guiding India to its maiden T20 worldwide victory on New Zealand soil here Friday.

Meanwhile, after the embarrassing loss in Wellington, India produced a thoroughly clinical performance against New Zealand in Auckland to level the three-match T20I series 1-1.

New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell was given out lbw on the field to Krunal Pandya and the decision was upheld by TV umpire Shaun Haig despite HotSpot indicating the batsman had inside-edged onto his pad.

"It's going to be a cracker of a game in the 3rd T20I, but nothing to take away from New Zealand, they're still a quality side", Rohit said.

Thanks to Grandhomme's heroics, his half century 50 (28) and his partnership with Ross Taylor who scored a valuable 42 (36) New Zealand finished at 158/8, and Pandya had an impressive figure of 3/28.

But the hosts could not break the shackles and tight bowling at the end of the innings prevented them from taking advantage of Eden Park's short boundaries.

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

The spinners, Ish Sodhi and Santner, too were on top of the Indian batsmen, sharing two wickets apiece.

Shankar, fielding at long-on, hit the stumps at the non-striker's end as Taylor struggled to make the ground. "It was slightly trickier to bat (here), but 20 more runs at the death would have been better". Both teams are likely to remain unchanged.

"That doesn't happen every day but hopefully we can keep making strides in that direction", he said.

Captain Rohit Sharma said the key for his team was maintaining pressure throughout the innings, not just in patches.

INDIA: Rohit Sharma c Southee b Sodhi 50 (29b, 3x4, 4x6), Shikhar Dhawan c de Grandhomme b Ferguson 30 (31b, 2x4), Rishabh Pant (not out) 40 (28b, 4x4, 1x6), Vijay Shankar c Southee b Mitchell 14 (8b, 1x4, 1x6), M.S.
