Given a spot in the starting XI on Saturday following Ashish Nehra's retirement, Siraj had a baptism with fire in Rajkot as New Zealand's batsmen made merry.

India succumbed to a disappointing loss in the second T20I at Rajkot and might also concede the series if they lose the third and final match at Thiruvanantthpuram.New Zealand posted 196-2 after electing to bat first, thanks to an beaten century from Colin Munro.

Munro put on 105 for the first wicket with Martin Guptill (45) as the visitors plundered the Indian attack around the park.

In the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand, he scored his 31st and 32nd century, thus surpassing Ricky Ponting's tally and moving to 2nd on the all-time list of most number of ODI centuries. This is the second T20I between the two teams. "We didn't take our chances, yes, but at once stage they were looking to get 235-240 and credit to Bumrah and Bhuvi to pull things back", Kohli praised the opposition. So far in the tour, India have won the ODI series as well as the T20I series-opener and are in a commanding position.

Virat Kohli wasn't disappointed by losing the toss. In the end, Boult's first over might very well have extinguished India's hopes. MS Dhoni struck some boundaries to get his score to 49 runs but, by then the game was already over. Trent Boult bowled a superb spell of 4-34 in 4 overs along with which the New Zealand spin duo of Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi kept the Indian batsmen in check with a wicket each and some economical bowling. It has happened with a lot of batsmen where you don't get to go on strike.
