India beat New Zealand by seven wickets in the second T20I at Eden Park to level the three-match series 1-1 on Friday.
“#TeamIndia win by 7 wickets. Level the three-match series 1-1,” BCCI tweeted.
Rohit Sharma brought up a blistering 50 off 28 balls but was out soon after. He is now the highest run-getter in men’s T20Is, going past Martin Guptill’s mark of 2272.
Krunal Pandya’s three-wicket burst caused New Zealand all kinds of trouble before Colin de Grandhomme’s quick fifty and a handy rescue from Ross Taylor lifted them to 158/8.
