Following the total posted by the opposition, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul started brilliantly for India. KL Rahul who had a decent outing in the previous match is now looking in red hot form with the bat.

He continuously attacked the New Zealand bowlers and scored over 30 runs in the powerplay overs itself. Rohit Sharma has been quite on the other end after smashing a six in the powerplay overs.

Then Tim Southee brought the spinners into the attack and started to contain the runs from both ends. Despite having a good start in the powerplay overs, the Indian openers found it difficult to score against the spinners, Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner.

However, Rohit Sharma broke through his shell and went on to smash Mitchell Santner in his second over of the match. After conceding two sixes, Trent Boult dropped the catch of Rohit Sharma who was batting on 30 runs.

KL Rahul and Rohit departed after scoring 65 and 55 runs and New Zealand once again tried to get back into the match. They went on to remove, Suryakumar Yadav as well but Rishabh Pant and Venkatesh Iyer did the job for their team.

In the end, India beat New Zealand by 7 wickets and took the lead by 2-0 in the three-match T20I series against New Zealand. Besides, in the first half of the game, a fan breached through the security to meet Rohit Sharma. The video went viral on social media after witnessing the kind gesture from Rohit Sharma.
