The second T20 will see India fighting hard as they need to win the match to keep chances of series victory alive.
In the series opener, India were handed an 80-run defeat, their biggest defeat in terms of runs in T20Is. The second match of the series will be played on February 07, i.e. Friday. Where did things go wrong for India?
Seifert top-scored with 84 runs taking the Kiwis to 219-6.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma led the way as they levelled the Twenty20 series.
The tourists have stuck with the same team they fielded in Wellington, including eight specialist batsmen, and will back themselves to overhaul the modest target.
"That opening partnership for India really took the game away from us", Williamson said.
He himself would like to lead from the front after scoring 1 on Wednesday and a significant contribution will also be expected from Rishabh Pant, who is in the running for a World Cup berth.
All-rounder Vijay Shankar was promoted to number three and did alright with a 18-ball 27.
# Skipper Kane Williams comes to bat at No.3!
Although he was dismissed for a 29-ball fifty, he made quite an impact before he got out in India's chase of 159 to level the T20I series.
Meanwhile, the risky opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings during the first match and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances. Also, India could bring back Kuldeep Yadav. In the very next over bowled by Scott Kuggeleijin, he completed the landmark of 100 sixes with a sweetly timed six over the fine leg fence.
