IND vs NZ Match Preview:
Although the limited-overs series was built up as a battle of the world heavyweights, New Zealand appeared slightly amateurish against a clinical Indian side for most parts. Their jabs cross, and hooks weren’t really causing much of a problem for India, who with their powerful bowling and batting arsenal had effective counter-measures in place. But the hosts did manage to land a couple of telling blows. NZ vs IND; 2nd t20i LIve Cricket Stream.
The first time they were like a swarmer with the ball in hand, they bowled out the visitors for a measly total of 92 in the fourth ODI – although the series was already lost by that time. Their second was like a slugger, dealing in heavy blows with the bat as they out-batted India in the opening T20I, handing their opponents their heaviest T20I defeat in terms of runs. Do New Zealand have enough in their tank to seal the series with a knockout punch in the second T20I?
The platform for New Zealand’s victory in the T20I opener was set up by Tim Seifert, who has scored only 42 runs in seven international 20-over games until then, sent the Indian bowlers on a leather hunt with his 43-ball 84, which included six sixes and seven fours. Overall, there were 14 maximums scored by New Zealand, with useful contributions from most of the batsmen as India struggled in the absence of Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav. Their decision to go in with eight batting options meant that they had to compromise on the bowling attack. But the lengthy batting order did little to help their cause as they were bowled out for less than 140.
With only a day’s break between the first two games, India has a very short time to prepare for a turnaround and keep the series alive. “We were outplayed in all three departments,” is how skipper Rohit Sharma described India’s loss, while his counterpart Kane Williamson said called New Zealand’s show “a complete performance that doesn’t happen every day”. Will it be an Indian comeback in Auckland or New Zealand riding on the wave of momentum?
IND vs NZ Team News:
New Zealand: Not opting for both James Neesham and Doug Bracewell for the first game, New Zealand went in with Daryl Mitchell and Colin de Grandhomme as the all-around choices. However, both failed to make any substantial contribution with the bat which might force the management to look at Neesham and Bracewell for the second game.
India: The visitors had six bowling options in the first T20I but they used only five, not opting for Vijay Shankar with the ball. The Tamil Nadu all-rounder, however, came up with a promising knock with the bat and could be persisted with for the second match. Meanwhile, both Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant failed with the bat, Hardik Pandya was a let-down with both bat and ball, while Khaleel Ahmed and Bhubaneshwar Kumar had expensive figures. Should they look at reinforcements, India has plenty of replacement options in Mohammed Siraj, Shubman Gill, Siddarth Kaul, Kedar Jadhav; and Kuldeep Yadav, who all warmed the bench during the first game.
