After securing a thumping six-wicket victory in the first T20I, Team India will look to continue with their winning run and extend the lead when they take on New Zealand in the second match of the ongoing five-match series at the Eden Park on Sunday.

Virat Kohli's men have won seven out of their last eight T20Is, and four on the trot. And another win in Auckland would present them a great chance to win the series - something which they haven't been able to achieve in their previous two attempts in New Zealand.

India claimed the opening fixture, thanks to a solid batting performance while chasing a stiff 204-run target. KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer were all among the runs, as the visitors went across the line with an over to spare. Iyer, in particular, was in excellent touch, slamming an unbeaten 58 with a strike rate of 200 and bagged his first Player of the Match award.

In fact, batsmen from both sides had a great game on Friday. As many as five fifties were scored in the match and thus on Sunday, it'll be the bowlers who'll play a decisive role at a venue that has produced high-scoring games with short boundaries.

All in all, another high-scoring game will be up for cards on Sunday with bowlers expected to make the difference between the two sides.

Full match is on the cards both the teams can expect more clear weather in Auckland for the second T20I on January 26. According to Accu Weather, no rain is expected in Auckland on Sunday. Auckland will witness sunny weather throughout the day, with the conditions expected to get more humid in the evening.
