New Zealand defeated India by runs riding high on Colin Munro's whirlwind 54 ball century. The Kiwis have made a tremendous comeback and the series now hangs 1-1.
After the 'Black Caps' batsmen scored an imposing 196 runs for the loss of 2 wickets, India were in for a hard chase.Whereas Guptill and Munro gave a majestic start to the Kiwis innings, the Indian batsmen were susceptible from the start. Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were snared early by Trent Boult who rocked the Indian chase.
Apart from skipper Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and newcomer Shreyas Iyer, none of the other batsmen could tackle the Kiwi bowlers.The Kiwi spinners Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi restricted the run flow of Indians in the middle overs.Â
Colin Munro too chipped in a wicket apart from his majestic century to earn the 'Man of the Match' award.
