However, Kohli's birthday celebrations were a bit soured by India's loss in the 2nd T20I to New Zealand. 

Opener Colin Munro smashed a career-best 109 not out to help secure New Zealand's series-levelling 40-run victory in the second Twenty20 International.

Munro smacked seven sixes and as many boundaries in his 58-ball blitz to help New Zealand post a commanding 196-2, in a match they needed to win to stay alive in the three-match contest.
