Mitchell, who made his debut in the first T20 in Wellington, was at the centre of a massive DRS controversy during the second game in Auckland.

India had no such problem in reply, making a flying start with Sharma leading the way.

His 50 included four sixes and three fours off 28 balls.

Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan added 79 runs for the first wicket before Rishabh Pant played an important knock to help India avenge the humiliation of first game.

India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I: MS Dhoni has been the most successful captain ever for India in all formats, hence there was no surprise when he took over the leadership duties from Rohit Sharma at Eden Park during the 2nd T20I.

New Zealand, on the other hand, would not be happy with their inconsistent batting performances throughout the Indian series.

Not even the seasoned Bhuvneshwar Kumar was spared as he, alongside Hardik Pandya and Khaleel Ahmed, leaked 12 runs an over.

The hosts were looking shaky at 50 for four before Colin de Grandhomme lifted the pace, hitting a maiden T20 half century off 27 balls that included four sixes.

Ross Taylor was forced to run singles as the hit-me balls dried up and de Grandhomme was also slowed down.

FALL OF WICKETS: 1-15 (Seifert, 2.3), 2-41 (Munro, 5.2), 3-43 (Mitchell, 5.6), 4-50 (Williamson, 7.5), 5-127 (de Grandhomme, 15.4), 6-153 (Taylor, 18.6), 7-154 (Santner, 19.2), 8-158 (Southee, 19.6).

"As a team, we have been good at chasing down targets which is why we play with eight batsmen". U.S. is the only country where they have not won a T20I match yet among countries in which they have played the shortest format.

"That doesn't happen every day but hopefully we can keep making strides in that direction", he said.

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. However, his captaincy and positive attitude have impressed one and all.
