Vastavam web: Opener Colin Munro smashed a career-best 109 not out to help secure New Zealand’s series-levelling 40-run victory in the second Twenty20 International against India on Saturday.Munro smacked seven sixes and as many boundaries in his 58-ball blitz to help New Zealand post a commanding 196-2 in a match they needed to win to stay alive in the three-match contest.Munro and Martin Guptill gave New Zealand a flying start after skipper Kane Williamson opted to bat at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
The openers tore into the Indian attack during their 105-run stand in 11 overs.Guptill clobbered three sixes in his breezy 45 before being dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal.Debutant Mohammed Siraj claimed his maiden international wicket when the paceman dismissed rival captain Kane Williamson for 12.
India’s reply got off to a contrasting start with the hosts losing both their openers inside the first two overs of their innings.Kohli and Shreyas Iyer raised 54 runs for the third wicket before Munro struck, dismissing Iyer for 23.Mahendra Singh Dhoni (49) struck three sixes but the mounting run rate prompted Kohli to try to accelerate and he perished in the process.
