The numero uno batter in T20 cricket, India's Surya Kumar Yadav mesmerised one and all during his unbeaten knock of 111* in the second match of the three-T20I series between the hosts New Zealand and visitors India on Sunday.

As both teams gear up to clash in the third and final match today, former New Zealand player Ross Taylor has suggested the Black Caps a certain method to stop Yadav's bantering.

India would look to wrap up the series 2-0 after gaining an unassailable lead, while the Kiwis will want to draw level.

Taylor, speaking with ESPNcricinfo, Taylor also said that Napier could be intimidating as a venue given the dimensions, and New Zealand batter should make good use of it.

"Bowl to the other guy as much as you can. At the end of the day, he is human and he will make mistakes. When you have a 50-50 chance, you have to take it. But the way he is batting at the moment, you know he was hitting sixes at the MCG and they were going 10, 15 rows back. If he hits it like that at McLean Park, they will be out of the ground."

The T20Is series will be followed by a three-match One-Day International series starting November 25. 

Shikhar Dhawan will be India's stand-in captain for the 50-overs leg replacing Hardik Pandya.
