After suffering their biggest loss in T20 Internationals in terms of runs on Wednesday night, India don't have a lot of time to introspect with just 24 hours separating the two games.

India's pacers also found swing with the old ball to make it more hard for the New Zealand batsmen.

The final match of the series is at Hamilton on Sunday. Bhuvneshwar Kumar swung the new ball and eventually got better of Tim Seifert after which Krunal Pandya broke the back of the Kiwi batting line-up.

The spinners, Krunal Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal, did alright but the team management will also consider including chinaman Kuldeep Yadav.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma led the way as they levelled the Twenty20 series.

"As a team, we have been good at chasing down targets which is why we play with eight batsmen". Rohit Sharma said he wanted to bowl anyway, despite India conceding 219 in the previous game.

Spinners Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi were introduced at that point, but neither could stem the flow.

Both sides are unchanged from Wellington, meaning Kuldeep Yadav continued to sit out with India fielding three allrounders in the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - and Vijay Shankar.

Taylor departed on 42 after a superb run out from Vijay Shankar, who made a direct hit on the stumps after firing the ball in from deep in the outfield.

Meanwhile, the unsafe opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings during the first match and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances. In the very next over bowled by Scott Kuggeleijin, he completed the landmark of 100 sixes with a sweetly timed six over the fine leg fence. Indian bowler Krunal Pandya took 3, K Khaleel Ahmed scalped 2, while Bhuvenshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya picked up 1 wicket each.

The match starts at 11.30 AM IST.
