The 2nd T20I between New Zealand and India. A lot on the line for both sides here - India need a win to stay alive in the series, while the Black Caps need it to win the series and shake off their disappointment from the ODI series loss.
Pitch report - Simon Doull and his antics. He is hanging himself on the pitch-roller while doing his pitch report. Starts by informing us that the boundaries are short in Auckland. He advises by saying that you don't want to be bowling full with straighter boundaries on the shorter side. Feels that the bowlers need to pull their lengths back a bit and bring squarer boundaries into play. Signs off by mentioning that the spinners have done well here in spite of Eden Park being a small stadium.
