New Zealand vs India, 2nd T20I – Live Cricket Score, Commentary
Although the limited-overs series was built up as a battle of the world heavyweights, New Zealand appeared slightly amateurish against a clinical Indian side for most parts. Their jabs, crosses and hooks weren’t really causing much of a problem for India, who with their powerful bowling and batting arsenal had effective counter-measures in place. But the hosts did manage to land a couple of telling blows.
