India have levelled their Twenty20 International series with New Zealand with a seven-wicket win in Auckland.

After losing the toss and being made to bowl first, Rohit Sharma's men restricted their hosts to 158.

Sharma then led the Indian response with a half-century, while Rishabh Pant hit an unbeaten 40, including a boundary that wrapped up the win with seven balls remaining.

The result means that Sunday's third and final match in Hamilton will be a winner-takes-all decider.
