IND Vs NZ 2nd T20I Preview: Likely Playing XI of India
Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Rahul Tripathi, Hardik Pandya(c), Washington Sundar, Deepak Hooda, Shivman Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh/Umran Malik and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Team India didn’t have a good start to the T20I series in Ranchi yesterday i.e. Jan 27. The home side lost the match by 21 runs and this was Hardik Pandya’s second loss as the skipper of the shortest format.
India needs to bounce back to square the series to one all in Lucknow. Their bowling was good at the start. However, Arshdeep leaked runs in the final over.
The death over bowling has been an issue with the men in blue side. Arshdeep can be replaced with Umran Malik who has been the brightest star for Team India recently.
Till the last over, India kept things under control. But Arshdeep gave 27 runs and the momentum also went with the Kiwis.
The openers too didn’t start the run chase well. Shubman Gill was in a rich vein of form in the fifty overs series but failed to transfer that in the first T20I match while Kishan batted at his usual position and also failed to bat well.
The openers should aim not to lose wickets in the first six overs from the 2nd T20I match.
The openers need to provide a good start and the team also needs the middle-order batters to come good. Surya and Hardik looked good.
But it was their wickets which triggered the collapse yesterday. SKY has been the number 1 batter in the shortest format for India and he needs to show this time and again.
Washington Sundar’s all-around display was a big positive. India doesn’t have Axar Patel or Ravindra Jadeja in this three-match T20I series.
So the onus is on Sundar to make the most of every opportunity in his own way. Washi scored his maiden fifty in the shortest format and also picked up 2 wickets with a good economy rate.
IND Vs NZ 2nd T20I Preview: Playing XI of New Zealand
Finn Allen, Devon Conway(wk), Mark Chapman, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner(c), Michael Bracewell, Jacob Duffy, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner.
The Kiwis gave a professional performance in the 1st T20I match at Ranchi. The bowling from New Zealand was exceptional and their spinners got more turn the Indian spinners.
Santner, Bracewell and Sodhi did a wonderful job of restricting the Indian run flow. Despite a good win, the visitors will want a better show from their batters.
Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell were the only ones who batted well and helped the team to set up a good score of 176 runs on the scoreboard.
Even the pacers leaked runs and New Zealand could win this 1st match mainly because of the spin trio. Santner can be New Zealand’s next leader and he has the qualities in him.
Mitchell was good with the ball and with the field changes as a captain. He was also calm when Hardik and Suryakumar were going strong in the middle overs.
Now the Kiwis will look for a series win in India, which will be a historic script for them in a way and they will want to give a similar show in the 2nd T20I match tomorrow i.e. Jan 29.
