New Zealand v India Twenty20 at Wellington

IND v NZ, 2nd T20, Wellington: New Zealand clinch last ball win against India (NZ 2:0)

New Zealand beat India by five wickets in the second and final Twenty20 cricket international in Wellington to take the series 2-0.
Brendon McCullum broke the deadlock on the last ball of the match when a skied single carried the hosts to 150 for five. McCullum topscored with an unbeaten 69 from 55 balls.
Yuvraj Singh led India's 149 for six with 50 off 34 balls. New Zealand won the opening match by seven wickets in Christchurch on Wednesday.
Brendon McCullum was declared "Man of the Match" and "Man of the Series". A five-match cone-day series between the teams starts in Napier on Tuesday.
IND v NZ, 2nd T20, Wellington: New Zealand 150-5 (20.0 overs) beat India 149-6 (20.0 overs) by 5 wickets

IND v NZ, 2nd T20, Wellington: India look to level series

World champions India would seek to restore their pride after being trounced in the first match as they go into the second and final Twenty20 game against New Zealand at Wellington, fully aware that only an inspired show will help them to level the series.
The seven-wicket defeat at Christchurch in the first match must have taken the reputation of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's young bravehearts as kings of Twenty20 a serious beating which they can only rectify by winning. A victory will also boost their morale ahead of the five-match ODI series starting on March 3 and put a balm after their second successive loss against New Zealand in the shortest format of the game.
However, the visitors will have to do a lot of catching up as the Kiwis have the distinct advantage of having bowling all-rounders in their ranks, in contrast to India who rely on their batsmen to bowl in the middle overs.
