New Zealand level three-match T20I series against India after defeating the hosts by 40 runs in Rajkot. Chasing 197, India were restricted to 156/7 in the 20 overs. Fast bowler Trent Boult led the bowling attack from the front as the left-armer scalped four including the wickets of openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. India were off to a dismal start after losing the two in-form batsmen early and were  struggling at 2/11 before Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer injected stability in the chase. Iyer added 54 runs with the Indian skipper before he miscued a big hit off Colin Munro. Kohli top-scored with 65 while Dhoni scored 49. Earlier, New Zealand rode on Munro’s unbeaten 109 in Rajkot to pile up 196/7. The series is level at 1-1 and the deciding match will take place on Tuesday in Thiruvananthapuram. Here’s a look at top reactions on Twitter after New Zealand’s convincing win.
