Shikhar Dhawan fell early in the India reply but Rohit Sharma (38) and, in particular, Vijay Shankar (43) kept the tourists up with the required rate.

Seifert, the hero in the series opener, bludgeoned 84 off just 43 deliveries - his innings laced with seven boundaries and six hits over the fence to lead New Zealand to a record 80-run win. In between these two dismissals, the Kiwis also got the wicket of a settled Rohit Sharma to tilt the odds in their favour.

Having said that, it was a 63-run unbeaten partnership for the seventh wicket between Dinesh Karthik (33) and Krunal Pandya (26) which saw India stay alive in the game till the last three balls of the match.

During the third T20I of the ongoing India's tour of New Zealand at Hamilton, New Zealand defeated India by 4 runs to win the three-match T20I series 2-1.

Runs came thick and fast as skipper Kane Williamson contributed 27 and Colin de Grandhomme produced a crucial 30-run cameo off 16-balls.
