Kuldeep Yadav was the tormentor-in-chief against New Zealand again as India coasted to a 90-run victory in the second one-day international at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Saturday to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

The left-arm spinner, who claimed 4 victims in the eight-wicket victory in the first match in Napier, took as New Zealand were dismissed for 234 in 40.2 overs in reply to India's 324-4.

Yadav ran through the middle order as they were once again unable to deal with his spin. He got rid of Tom Latham with an absolute beauty of a delivery that he tossed up nicely and tempted the batsman forward but only resulted in him being trapped plumb in front of the wicket.

He then went on to dismiss Henry Nicholls before getting rid of Colin de Grandhomme and Ish Sodhi in consecutive deliveries. He was ably supported by spin partner Yuzvendra Chahal and the two will be key to India's chances of winning the series.

But the win was set up thanks largely to opener Rohit Sharma, as he scored 87 runs from 96 balls to give the visitors a solid start in the game. He hit 9 fours and 6 sixes in the course of his innings.

He was ably supported by opening partner Shikhar Dhawan as the two of them went on to stitch together a 154-run stand - a record opening stand at the venue - that laid the platform for India to go 2-0 up in the series.

While the opening pair were both dismissed by the end of the 30th over, India were still 173-2 and looking ominous only for New Zealand's bowlers to change their line and length and mix up their deliveries to slow the scoring rate.

The visitors, however, were still able to steadily build their innings and surpassed 300 when former captain MS Dhoni (48*) and Kedar Jadhav (22) closed with 35 runs in the final two overs.

The third match is also at Bay Oval on Monday.
