    Trent Boult to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Nicholls.

    Colin Munro's gung-ho gun show has blitzed New Zealand to a series-levelling victory in Rajkot. The left-hander blasted his second T20I century in a devastating assault containing seven massive maximums, as he rode his luck courtesy of some dodgy Indian fielding. It was always going to be a tough chase for the hosts needing 197 for the win, and despite Virat Kohli's threatening half century, the Kiwis took wickets at regular intervals. Trent Boult did the bulk of the damage, finishing with a career best 4/34 after some high quality bowling with the new ball and at the death. That means the series is set up beautifully at 1-1, with the decider taking place on Tuesday.

    OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward square leg, by Santner. Miscued into the hands of Santner, Boult now has career best T20I figures. This has been quite the performance from the left-arm quick.

    FOUR! Adam Milne to MS Dhoni. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Juicy full toss, Dhoni just helps it on it's way with a cross-batted shovel.

  • 17.3

    OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Axar Patel. Slower ball short, outside off stump down the track cutting, in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Williamson. Patel looks to take on Boult but he has to wait an age for this slower ball to get to him, and when it eventually does he can only spoon it to the hands of a grateful Kiwi captain. New Zealand are on the verge of levelling the series.

    OUT! Caught. Mitchell Santner to Virat Kohli. Quicker ball back of a length, off stump down the track driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Phillips. That's the wicket the Kiwis were after, that might well be game over in Rajkot. Santner fires in a quick delivery and Kohli can only feather an edge through. Phillips eventually whips the bails off as well just to make sure, but Kohli was already on his way off.
