India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Playing XI: Suryakumar Yadav struck a blistering half-century as India held on to beat New Zealand by five wickets in the first of three Twenty20s in Jaipur on Wednesday and get Rahul Dravid’s reign as head coach off to a winning start.
Chasing 165, India clinched victory with two balls to spare thanks to a career-best 62 from Yadav, who played some classy strokes after captain Rohit Sharma (48) and KL Rahul (15) had given the hosts a fine start with a 50-run opening stand.
Mohammed Siraj got a web split on his left hand while fielding on his own bowling in the first T20I in Jaipur. The BCCI medical team is closely monitoring his progress.
