It was the kind of day when nothing went right for India who let New Zealand amass 219 before surrendering meekly in the steep chase.

Here's a look at how Twitter reacted to India's convincing win in the second T20I and Rohit's barrage of records.

Sharma's knock was his 16th T20 half-century and took his career tally in the format to 2,288 runs, overtaking New Zealand's Martin Guptill on 2,272.

Sharma, who is standing in as captain while Virat Kohli is rested, had demanded greater consistency ahead of the match.

Pant who came in to bat at no. 3 finished with 40 runs off 28 balls.

"Very pleased to see how we bowled, and we were quite clinical with the bat as well".

Around the TV umpire Shaun Haig's controversial decision to send Daryl Mitchell on his way despite HotSpot showing an inside edge, the Blackcaps lost three wickets in nine balls for three runs to Krunal Pandya and after a dazzling 50 from Colin de Grandhomme the hosts were chocked in the back end of their innings. A terrific direct hit from the deep by Vijay Shankar ran out Taylor for 42 off the last ball of the 19th over to add to India's excellent effort in the field. New Zealand posted 158 for the loss of eight wickets and skipper Kane Williamson felt his team could have done better with the bat.

"Some smarter options might have given us another 20 runs at the death that would have been really helpful on that wicket".

India had no such problem in reply, making a flying start with Sharma leading the way.

Rohit smashed three boundaries and four sixes in his entertaining 29-ball 50.

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Mohammad Siraj. "It wasn't a 180-200 wicket for sure, but the opening partnership from India just took it away", said Williamson.
