IND vs NZ 2nd T20I

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: India’s perfect record in Twenty20 International matches is in danger after New Zealand handed them a 21-run loss in the first Twenty20 International match, which took place in Rancho, California. On the 29th of January, beginning at seven o’clock in the evening, the second and now decisive Twenty20 international will be contested at the Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. At Ekana Stadium, India has a perfect record of winning every match.

This was New Zealand’s first victory in a Twenty20 International match in India in the team’s last five encounters there. Not only were they able to handle the curve that the stadium had to offer, but they also managed to overcome the dew issue. They have improved their odds of winning their first Twenty20 International series in India since the year 2012. But better doesn’t mean easy. Don’t forget that India hasn’t lost a Twenty20 International series at home since they were defeated by Australia in a 2-0 series defeat in 2018. That was back in 2018.

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: Match Overview


India’s decision to rest Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohler, and KL Rahul is not ideal. Nevertheless, they will most likely select Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and Rahul Tripathi. The most experienced of the three, Kishan, has not scored a match-winning knock in his last nine games. In the last nine games, he has scored only 112 runs, and he has not reached double digits in the last three.

In the ODI series against New Zealand, Shubman Gill recorded a double century and a century, but the T20 format also appears to be a difficult assignment. With Ruturaj Gaikwad ruled out of the series, Tripathi has the opportunity to demonstrate his selection. India may consider substituting Prithvi Shaw for Tripathi. However, India’s top order remains susceptible.  

Since almost a year ago, Suryakumar Yadav has been India’s most valuable player. The top T20I player in the world has scored 1625 runs at a strike rate of 178.76. He has scored two hundred and a fifty in the last six outings. Hardik Pandya is struggling to make optimal use of his bowlers. Arshdeep Singh is quite costly. So is Umran Malik. And Shivam Mavi has not yet discovered his rhythm. Kuldeep Yadav is the best bowler in the Indian team, in our opinion.

New Zealand

Finn Allen and Devon Conway will open the New Zealand batting order. Allen scored 35 runs in the first game of the ODI series, putting an end to his three consecutive ducks. In 26 T20Is, his strike rate has been 162.70, making him a treat for India in the second T20I. This tour marks the completion of two and a half centuries for Devon Conway. He is without a doubt our choice for the best hitter. In 33 innings, Conway has scored 1222 runs for an average of 48.88. He has also recorded consecutive fifty-plus scores against India.

Glenn Phillips, a two-time century, and all-rounders Daryl Mitchell and Bracewell make the New Zealand middle order superior to any bowling attack.

The bowling assault will be led by Santner, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, and Jacob Duffy. Santner conceded only 11 runs while taking two wickets. He was the first bowler to bowl an over without conceding a run to Suryakumar Yadav.

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: Weather report

The climate will be cooler than in Ranchi. Rain is expected in Lucknow the day before the match. It may cause the outfield to become wet. The temperature will range from 11 to 22 degrees Celsius. The wind will be 3-5 kilometers per hour from the west. The pitch benefits hitters. A high-scoring contest is anticipated. The last time this stadium held a T20I was roughly 11 months ago in a game when India hammered 199/2.

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: Toss Prediction

All 5 Men’s T20Is have been won by the team that bats first. The average score in the first inning is 157, which is 28 more than in the second. Whoever wins the coin toss gets to bat first.

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: Pre-play prediction

Best batter: Shubman Gill (IND), Devon Conway (NZ)

Best bowler: Shivam Mavi (IND), Kuldeep Yadav (NZ)

Top all-rounder: Washington Sundar (IND), Daryl Mitchell (NZ)

Player of the match: Washington Sundar (IND)

IND vs NZ 2nd T20I: Match Prediction

After losing the ODI series 3-0, New Zealand’s spirits were lifted by a strong showing in the first game. But India is playing at home. Since 2018-19, India hasn’t lost a T20I series at home. Since then, they have won 11 series and tied two series, both of which were against South Africa.

India has won all of their games in Lucknow. In both games, when they were up first, they scored 190+ runs.

We think that India will win the match against New Zealand.
