India won the second T20 International against New Zealand at Auckland, by 7 wickets. Kiwis won the toss and decided to bat first only to face the attack of Krunal Pandya who dismissed the top order of the team Munro(12), skipper Kane Williamson(20) and Mitchell(1), while Bhuvaneshwar Kumar scalped the wicket of Seifert (12), as Kiwis were reeling at 4/50.

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. The Indian batting began with a mix of aggression and caution with skipper Rohit Sharma pacing his way to a massive 50(29) and on the other end Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed after a slow 30(31).

The young Vijay Shankar was dismissed by Mitchell for 14 and then  Rishabh Pant 40(28)* and MS Dhoni 20(17)* scored valuable cameo knocks staying firm without losing further wickets, and their unbeaten knocks lead India to 162/3, and a victory by 7 wickets with 7 balls to spare.After losing the first T20, India leveled the T20 series 1-1 with this victory. Krunal Pandya was the man of the match for his 3/28.
