The Kane Williamson-led side, however, have made two important changes in the squad.
Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer, who started his worldwide career on the day Nehra ended, did not get a chance to bat in the first T20 and will now be eager to score for the team in this match.
Munro teamed with Martin Guptill at the top of the order, enjoying a 105-run partnership to start the innings, before Guptill fell for 45 in the 12th over. New Zealand beat India by 40 runs after Colin Munro launched his assault on the Indian bowlers and the New Zealand bowling attack kept it tight to ensure that the series doesn't slip out of their hands. India drafted in the debutant Mohammad Siraj in the place of Ashish Nehra who retired from worldwide cricket after the previous game.
While Munro scored runs in an aggressive manner, he also rode a bit on his luck as the left-hander was dropped twice and survived a run-out chance but capitalised on the chances given to him well to score his second T20I ton. His blistering knock ensured New Zealand post a huge total of 196 runs with a loss two wickets on the board after 20 overs.
The 11th over bowled by Axar Patel (0-39) saw 21 runs scored in it as the 100-run opening partnership came off just 66 deliveries.

Chahal was the only other Indian bowler who managed a wicket, returning figures of 1/36 in four overs.
