New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat against India in the second T20 here on Sunday.
India replaced Umran Malik with Yuzvendra Chahal in the playing eleven while New Zealand named an unchanged team.

For India, Washington Sundar (2/22) scalped two wickets, while Kuldeep Yadav (1/20), Shivam Mavi (1/19) and Arshdeep Singh (1/51) accounted for one batter each. Washington later came up with his maiden half-century in T20Is, scoring 50 off 28 balls and in-form batter Suryakumar Yadav scored a 34-ball 47 but it was not enough.
