T20: India suffer early setbacks after flying start
Virender Sehwag and Suresh Raina fell in quick succession as India lost early wickets after the visitors were put in to bat.
New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl in the second Twenty20 International at Wellington on Friday.
Daniel Vettori won his second consecutive toss and again chose to field in the second Twenty20 at windy Wellington. Mahendra Singh Dhoni wasn't too concerned at losing the toss, saying he would have batted first anyway. This is not the only thing India are saying they aren't concerned about - Yuvraj has dismissed talk that the loss in the first Twenty20 was a setback.
Dhoni had said he was quite happy with the combination that turned out on Wednesday, but has still made a change: allrounder Ravindra Jadeja comes in for the offcolour Rohit Sharma. It's a move designed to bolster India's back-up bowling options - the Pathan brothers and Yuvraj Singh leaked 92 runs in their seven overs in the first Twenty20.
New Zealand have gone in with the same XI that ambushed India at the tiny AMI Stadium in Christchurch. Vettori was pleased with the composure his team showed during the initial onslaught from Virender Sehwag as well as the maturity with which his batsmen paced the chase.
There is a drop-in pitch at Wellington too and forty overs have already been played on the surface - an exhibition Twenty20 match between New Zealand Cricket Players' Association and the Australian Cricketers' Association Masters was held earlier in the day. The talk after the match was that the ball was seaming around, which means India's batsmen will have to display more caution than in the first match.
