Internet Desk: Colin Munro w registered a brilliant century in the second T20 at Rajkot claimed that early dismissal of the Indian openers was effective and credited his team's bowling attack for their brilliant 40run win.

Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma both were dismissed early by Kiwi spearhead Trent Boult as the Men in Blue were left at 11-2 when they were set to chase a target of 196-2.

"(It was) massive. (Grabbing) wickets halts the momentum of the team and those two players are in good form like we saw in the first T20," said Munro in the post-game press conference.

"They put on a record partnership (158) and for Trent to come out, stand up and lead the attack like he did tonight was outstanding. As was Adam Milne.

"To come out and bowl like they did gave us a lot of momentum and belief and then the spinners (Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi) could come in and do their thing knowing that they were behind required rate from the start," added Munro.

India's run-chase was halted at 156 for 7 as the visitors notched up a resounding 40-run victory after they had suffered a 53-run loss in the series opener at Delhi. The deciding last game will be played on November 7 at Thiruvananthapuram.

On his own sensational knock, man of the match Munro, only the fourth batsman to score two T20 hundreds, said he relished the shortest form of the game.

"I enjoy Twenty20, it's a game where you know it's a short game and you go out there to express yourself and when it comes off, it comes off. Sometimes you put too much pressure on yourself in the longer form where you've got to score runs all the time," Munro said.

"In Twenty20, you just got to go out there and express yourself and take the good with the bad. Sometimes it comes off like it did tonight and the other night it didn't come off. You just got to go with the flow."

Talking about his two T20 centuries, Munro said: "Obviously the first hundred you score for your country, it always means a lot against Bangladesh. Again to come to India, play against a tough opposition and score a hundred and bat throughout the innings, means a heck of a lot.
