India will play their second T20 cricket match against New Zealand on Sunday at Mount Manganui Bay Oval. New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl first. Batting first, India scored 191 runs in the allotted overs and lost 6 wickets. In this second T20, all the players except Suryakumar Yadav were disappointed. But Ishan Kishan, who came as the opener of the Indian team, impressed as if there was no problem. And Suryakumar Yadav once again showed his destructive batting. It is not an exaggeration that he played the New Zealand bowlers unlimitedly in the limited overs game. He scored a century in just 49 balls and registered his second century in his career. At the end of India’s innings, he was unbeaten on 111 off 51 balls.
Pushed Ishan Kishan..
The Indian team first left Sanju Samson aside and went into bat with Ishan Kishan and Rishabh Pant. At first, he started the innings with some aggression, but he turned back in the ninth over. Ishan lost his wicket playing a cut shot off the first ball of the ninth over bowled by Ish Sodhi. He scored 36 runs off 31 balls with a strike rate of 116.13 when he got out. Rishabh Pant, who came down with him, scored only 6 runs in 13 balls. Shreyas Iyer who came to bat at number four also failed to bat and lost his wicket scoring only 13 runs off 9 balls. Shreyas Iyer looked to be in good form hitting two sixes but unfortunately got out soon after. Suryakumar Yadav, who scored his half-century in 32 balls, completed the next half-century in just 17 balls.

Like one after another..
Senior bowler Tim Soudhi came forward to bowl the 20th over for New Zealand. Having already bowled three overs, he conceded 29 runs without taking a single wicket. But in the 20th over, he seems to have sharpened his ball well. He gave away two and two runs in the first two balls and then took the wicket of Hardik Pandya in the third ball. Later, Deepak Hooda, who came to the crease, was also followed by the pavilion. Soudhi also took the wicket of Washington Sundar who came in to bat and scored a hat-trick in his last over of the innings. He ended the Indian innings by conceding just one run off the next ball.
India’s innings: Ishan Kishan 36(31), Rishabh Pant 6(13), Suryakumar Yadav 111(51), Shreyas Iyer 13(9), Hardik Pandya 13(13), Deepak Hooda 0(1), Washington Sundar 0(1) Bhubaneswar 1(1)
New Zealand bowling: Saudi (4-0-34-3); Milne (4-0-35-0); Ferguson (4-0-49-0); Neesham (1-0-9-0); Ish Saudi (4-0-35-1); Santner (3-0-27-0)
