New Zealand and India go head to head in the second T20I in Mount Maunganui on Sunday, November 20. Rain played spoilsport in the first T20I. Due to persistent rain, the ground conditions were not ideal which meant that the match had to be ultimately abandoned.

The series will well and truly kick off from the second T20I. Both teams are fresh from their T20 World Cup campaign. India lost to England in the semi-final while the Kiwis lost to Pakistan. 

Hardik Pandya will lead India in the series in the absence of the senior players. The likes of Rohit Sharma Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ravindra Jadeja all have been rested from the series. This is a young Indian side ready to take on the Kiwi challenge. Kane Williamson will continue to lead the Kiwis.
