An inside edge was apparent even without the Hotspot technology but New Zealand batsman Daryl Mitchell fell to a contentious leg-before call during the second T20 global against India.

The second T20I at Eden Park in Auckland witnessed a historic moment when Rishab Pant hit a boundary in the 19th over of India's innings.

He added 79 for the first wicket with Shikhar Dhawan, and while Dhawan's dismissal pegged India back to 88 for two after 11 overs, the required run rate was always manageable for the visitor, and Risabh Pant (40 not out) and MS Dhoni (20 not out) sent the series to a decider in Hamilton tomorrow.

Predicted Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, and Yuzvendra Chahal. Rohit with 2,288 runs, overtook Martin Guptill, who has 2,272 runs, to become the leading run-scorer in the shortest format of the game and broke several other records during his knock.

India performed well with the ball after New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat, taking early wickets then restricting the Black Caps with some tight bowling to close the innings.

Cardinals sign another former Falcons defender — National Football League free agency
The Arizona Cardinals have signed free agent linebacker Brooks Reed to a one-year contract, the team announced Saturday . The Arizona Cardinals are not good at football but at least they are consistent in some respects.

Ross Taylor was forced to run singles as the hit-me balls dried up and de Grandhomme was also slowed down. With a harried two, de Grandhomme raised his maiden T20I fifty off 27 balls with a harried two and drove the next ball from Hardik straight into cover's lap. The Indian side beat Kiwis in the 2 T20 to level 3-match T20 series 1-1.

This is also India's first win in New Zealand in T20Is.

"As a team, we have been good at chasing down targets which is why we play with eight batsmen". They have won 6 matches out of those 8 matches.

"That doesn't happen every day but hopefully we can keep making strides in that direction", he said.

New Zealand's Daryl Mitchell was given out lbw on the field to Krunal Pandya and the decision was upheld by TV umpire Shaun Haig despite HotSpot indicating the batsman had inside-edged onto his pad. However, his captaincy and positive attitude have impressed one and all. "Hopefully we can come out and correct those mistakes, not repeat them".
