Ravindra Jadeja, with his unbeaten 26, was India's top scorer after Kiwis captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to field.

Darryl Mitchell then made short work of the chase, smashing 49 off 34 to take the match away from India, despite Jasprit Bumrah getting Martin Guptill's wicket early. Even though Mitchell fell to Bumrah in the 13th over, it was too little too late for India.

Kane Williamson finished things off for New Zealand, staying unbeaten at 33 off 31 deliveries.

New Zealand won by eight wickets with more than five overs to spare, giving themselves a good Net Run Rate boost.

India have now lost both their matches in the tournament so far and find themselves in big trouble in the T20 World Cup standings.
