India vs New Zealand Cricket Score 2nd T20: Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bat first in Rajkot. Kohli said that he would have preferred to chase anyway. The Indian cricket team has made only one change in the playing XI. Mohammed Siraj has been given his maiden cap in place of Ashish Nehra. With the Ashish Nehra retirement fest over, the focus is now back on the ongoing T20 series between India and New Zealand. Indian cricket team leads the series 1-0 right now and ideally, Virat Kohli would like to wrap up things in Rajkot by taking an unbeatable lead. More than anything else, New Zealand’s fielding let it down in Delhi as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan dismantled the bowlers. Whether it was dew or the pressure that got to them, Kane Williamson said there were no excuses. Colin Munro showed a lot of promise in the final ODI but failed again in the first match. Kiwis would want more runs from Martin Guptill as well who has had a quiet tour so far. We can expect a dry wicket which will provide no assistance to the bowlers. It could be another high scoring game of cricket. Indian score is 112/4 after 15 overs.
