So, finally we had a full game and a result as well. India take 1-0 lead in the series with a game to go. Suryakumar Yadav was once again scintillating with his bat and the bowlers complimented to cap off a fine win for India.

Good news, rain has stopped and the play has resumed as well. Thankfully no overs were lost in this stoppage period. Hopefully the rain stays away for rest of the game.

It has started to rain in Mount Maunganui. The forecast isn't great for this game and it was always feared rain will interfere. Meanwhile, the players are off the field.

New Zealand have won the toss and have opted to bowl against India in second T20I. It is cloudy right now in Mount Maunganui but thankfully no rain.

It was raining in Mount Maunganui earlier but showers seem to have cleared now. The covers from main pitch are off and it looks like we will have toss on time for this game. Fingers crossed!

After rain washed out the series opener without a ball being bowled due to persistent rain at the Sky Stadium on Friday, both India and New Zealand will be hoping that some play happens in the second T20I on Sunday in front of a sell-out crowd at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. The forecast for Sunday in Mount Maunganui doesn't look that great, but chances are we will get some play as opposed to complete washout in Wellington.

The series now effectively becomes a two-game affair and both the teams will be looking to set things in order for the future after ICC T20 World Cup 2022 semifinals exit. While India lost to eventual champions England by ten wickets at Adelaide Oval, New Zealand had to face a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of runners-up Pakistan at Sydney Cricket Ground.

In the absence of first-choice regulars like skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya is leading the side with wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant serving as his deputy. If rain stays away in Mount Maunganui we expect a close contest between the two sides.
