New Zealand vs India 2nd T20: After a spectacular victory in the first match of five-match T20 series, Men in Blue are all set to take on the Kiwis in the second T20 match at Eden Parks in Auckland on Sunday. Virat Kohli (45), KL Rahul (56) and Shreyas Iyer (58) powered Indian victory. Also, it was the first instance of five half-centuries – Colin Munro (59), Kane Williamson (51), Ross Taylor (54*), KL Rahul (56) and Shreyas Iyer (58*) – in a single T20I match.

Eden Parks will be hosting another T20I match, which means there will be more rain of boundaries. What else could be a better day for Team India that will be playing its second T20 match on the country's 71st Republic Day.

India needs to work more on the bowling attack as the previous match witnessed lack of consistency in term of line and length. Meanwhile, there will be a tough competition against India as Kiwis too are preparing for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2020.


India: Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul(w), Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Sanju Samson, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant, Washington Sundar

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson(c), Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, Tim Seifert(w), Mitchell Santner, Blair Tickner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett, Daryl Mitchell, Scott Kuggeleijn
