Indian pacers were on the mark as the hosts bowled out New Zealand for a paltry 108 in 34.3 overs. Mohammed Shami (3/18) was the pick of the bowlers for India as the veteran pacer snared three wickets while Hardik Pandya (2/26) and Washington Sundar (2/7) accounted for two batters each. In reply, skipper Rohit Sharma scored a fifty to lead India to a comfortable win. India had won the series opener by 12 runs earlier this week.
India’s batters followed up a relentless performance from their pacers by chasing down a target of 109 in just over 20 overs with eight wickets to spare.
Rohit Sharma scored 51 off 50 balls while Shubman Gill, who hit the winning runs, remained unbeaten on 40 off 53.
Mohammad Shami awarded Man Of the Match for his three wickets.
