Sharma's knock was his 16th T20 half century and took his career tally in the format to 2,288 runs, overtaking New Zealand's Martin Guptill on 2,272. The New Zealand-India live streaming will take place on hotstar.com.

An inside edge was apparent even without the Hotspot technology but New Zealand batsman Daryl Mitchell fell to a contentious leg-before call during the second T20 global against India.

Rohit Sharma hit a 29-ball fifty setting up India's chase of 159 against New Zealand in the 2nd T20I as the visitors claimed a seven-wicket wicket victory at Eden Park, Auckland on Friday to level the three-match series 1-1. Kumar picked up the wicket of the risky Tim Seifert after he was threatening to open up.

Not even the seasoned Bhuvneshwar Kumar was spared as he, alongside Hardik Pandya and Khaleel Ahmed, leaked 12 runs an over. Rohit Sharma said he wanted to bowl anyway, despite India conceding 219 in the previous game.

He himself would like to lead from the front after scoring 1 on Wednesday and a significant contribution will also be expected from Rishabh Pant, who is in the running for a World Cup berth.


All-rounder Vijay Shankar was promoted to number three and did alright with a 18-ball 27.

"That doesn't happen every day but hopefully we can keep making strides in that direction", he said.

Both New Zealand and India named unchanged teams for the fixture, with the tourists fielding eight specialist batsmen in order to exploit Eden Park's short boundaries. But the Indian bowlers rose to the occasion to dismiss the opposition for 105. "It's important that as a side we are aware of the good bits we have done and put that into practice every time we come out to bat".

Chasing the low total of 158 runs, Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma (50), Shikhar Dhawan (30), Rishabh Pant (40*) and MS Dhoni (20*) helped India to chase the target comfortably. "India should look at attacking New Zealand with two regular spinners - Kuldeep (Yadav) and (Yuzvendra) Chahal - in the upcoming matches", said Kumble.

Match starts at 11.30 AM IST.
