India will look to make a strong comeback in the second T20

India won the 2nd T20I by 7 wickets. The series is 1-1 tied and this makes the Hamilton clash a mouth-watering one.

After handing India their biggest T20I defeat, the Black Caps will be oozing with confidence.

It was the kind of day when nothing went right for India who let New Zealand amass 219 before surrendering meekly in the steep chase. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and no. 4 batsman Daryl Mitchell also failed to entertain the crowd as they were removed for 20 and 1 run respectively.

The team could replace Ahmed with either Siddharth Kaul or Mohammad Siraj, who warmed the bench on Wednesday.

Go to the what? The main goal of the Green New Deal is to remodel the USA economy and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Ed Markey of MA are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate the US carbon footprint by 2030.

India's pacers bowled expertly in tandem in the slog overs, while Krunal Pandya ran through the heart of the top-order as the visitors posted a convincing seven-wicket victory versus New Zealand in Auckland to level the three-match T20I series at 1-1.

Kedar Jadhav was a surprising omission in the first game but is likely to come in here after India struggled so badly in the first match whilst Shubman Gill is another option to come in if the Indians decide to mix up their team. Vijay Shankar didn't last long but with just over 40 runs to cross the finishing line, the result of the match was more or less a foregone conclusion.

The two wicketkeepers, Pant and Dhoni, saw India home from there, with the veteran making 20 off 17.

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

"It was a complete performance that doesn't happen everyday and hope we can keep the momentum through the series having set the tone", he said.

Meanwhile, the risky opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings during the first match and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances.
