It's all over at Auckland as India win their first ever T20 on New Zealand soil and keep the series alive. After being beaten comprehensively in the first match at Wellington, India returned the favour to the Kiwis with a scintillating performance.
Rishbah Pant drives one straight down the ground and India take the win by seven wickets to square the series up 1-1. All eyes on Seddon Park on Sunday for the decider! 👀👀— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) February 8, 2019
