Having lost the opening wickets early in the innings, India failed to chase down the 197 run target set by New Zealand, falling short of 40 runs.
Let's look at the match highlights and some interesting statistics.
Ind-NZ 2nd T20I in numbers
Colin Munro's century propels New Zealand to 196
Winning the toss, New Zealand decided to bat first scoring 196/2 in the 2nd T20I in Rajkot.
It was a Colin Munro show as the Kiwi opener went on to score 109* off 58 balls, the only batsman to ever hit a century against India in India in T20Is.
He is also the first batsman to score two T20I centuries in a year.
Munro only the fourth player with two T20I 100s
A second T20I 100 for Munro meant that he is just the fourth player to join the small group of players with two T20I tons. Other three are Brendon McCullum, Chris Gayle, and Evin Lewis.
