What do you think about India's win & the DRS controversy? What does the DRS law says? Here is Sportskeeda's Cricket Corner with all the information.
That's it from Auckland. India were sublime across all departments today. The T20I series is level 1-1. Do join us on Sunday for what promises to be a pulsating series decider at Hamilton. The final T20I at Seddon Park is scheduled to begin on 12:30 PM IST. 
Rohit Sharma: Very pleased to see how we bowled and we were quite clinical with the bat as well. We have quality in our side but we executed our plans better today after learning from our mistakes. It's important to understand the mistakes that we made - it's been a long tour for everyone. So we didn't want to put a lot of pressure on the boys, just go in there with a clear mind. It's going to be a cracker of a game in the third T20I. But nothing to take away from New Zealand, they're still a quality side.
Kane Williamson: I suppose the performance in Wellington was going to be difficult to replicate. We missed a trick or two with the bat. It was slightly more tricky to bat here, but 20 more runs at the death would have been better. It wasn't a 180 or 200 wicket for sure. But the opening partnership from India just took it away. It's important that as a side we are aware of the good bits we have done and put that into practice every time we come out to bat. Today, it wasn't our day to be honest. Today wasn't as close as we would have liked. But having a full house like Eden Park, there isn't any better atmosphere in the world.
Player of the Match Krunal Pandya: It felt really nice to contribute for the team. It's always special when you contribute to a win. The dimensions here are quite different from Wellington. The straight boundaries were short and I had to adjust my length to it. Looking forward to the decider in two days time.
Pant drills one down the ground, and that's it. India level the series with a comfortable seven-wicket win, forcing the result of the series into the third game. Handshakes all around, and the Dhoni-Pant duo walk off, finishing what was a solid platform set by the openers.
18.4 Scott Kuggeleijn to Rishabh Pant. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot pulling, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Seifert.
18.3 Scott Kuggeleijn to Rishabh Pant. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Munro, fielded by Williamson.
18.2 Scott Kuggeleijn to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Seifert.
The ball trickles down next to the wicket, and it is mutually decided that Pant will get the strike. They scamper across for a super-quick single.
18.1 Scott Kuggeleijn to Rishabh Pant. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Ferguson.
Pant ends up giving a single to Dhoni, with just two needed.

17.6 Lockie Ferguson to MS Dhoni. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Mitchell.
A mere 3 needed off the last 12. Pant can do what Dhoni invariably does to finish off a chase.

17.4 Lockie Ferguson to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Mitchell.
These two are adept at running hard in the middle. 1s and 2s, that's all there is needed right now, and these two are doing it fine.
17.3 Lockie Ferguson to Rishabh Pant. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pulling, in the air under control to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Sodhi.
