Blistering Munro ton helps NZ level series against India

(Reuters) – Opener Colin Munro smashed a career-best 109 not out to help secure New Zealand’s series-levelling 40-run victory in the second Twenty20 International against India on Saturday.

Munro smacked seven sixes and as many boundaries in his 58-ball blitz to help New Zealand post a commanding 196-2 in a match they needed to win to stay alive in the three-match contest.

India, who won the preceding one-day series against New Zealand, wobbled early in their chase and eventually managed 156-7 despite skipper Virat Kohli’s defiant 65.

Thiruvananthapuram hosts the decider tomorrow.
