India began their New Zealand tour on a high. They won the first T20 game played in Auckland by six wickets.
After choosing to bowl first, India soon found themselves under pressure as New Zealand’s openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro put a quick partnership. India managed to pull things later in the innings but still had to chase 204 runs.
In reply, India got a fantastic performance from KL Rahul at the top, Kohli and Iyer in the middle and hauled their target with one over remaining.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of Navdeep Saini if Jasprit Bumrah is deemed unfit for the second game.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Virat Kohli
- KL Rahul
- Rohit Sharma
- Navdeep Saini
- Rishabh Pant
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Shreyas Iyer
- Kuldeep Yadav
- Shivam Dube
- Mohammad Shami
- Shardul Thakur
New Zealand are hosting India for a long cricket series. They are going to be led by Kane Williamson in the T20 cricket series.
New Zealand played well in the first T20 especially with the bat but their inexperience with the ball showed. They could not defend the good total of 203 runs and lost the game.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:
- Kane Williamson
- Ross Taylor
- Colin de Grandhomme
- Mitch Santner
- Martin Guptill
- Colin Munro
- Blair Tickner
- Tim Southee
- Daryl Mitchell
- Tim Seifert
- Hamish Bennett
Expert Prediction: IND vs NZ
India got off to the desired start in the T20 cricket series against New Zealand. They fought the scheduling, top partnership from New Zealand opening pair, cracking knocks from opposition’s statesmen and a big total to take the lead of 1-0 in the series.
India were put under immediate pressure as New Zealand openers showed their destructive form. The opening pair of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro hammered 80 runs in just 7 overs and set the stage for their experienced batsmen. Post that, both their experienced players, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, hammered half-centuries and took New Zealand to a total of 203 runs.
New Zealand would have hoped for it enough especially when they got Rohit Sharma early in the innings. However, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul had different ideas as they took India to the halfway mark. New Zealand fought back and got both of them out but Indian middle order showed their class after a long time and took India home.
Shreyas Iyer made a name for himself by hammering the half-century in the very first knock in the series. This augurs well for India not only for this series but for the future as well. India now will be very confident going ahead in the series.
New Zealand would be hoping their inexperienced bowling lineup can stand up to the might of Indian batting in upcoming cricket games. India, on the other hand, would be hoping that their premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah does not have a serious injury.
For now, looking at the depth of both squads, our prediction is of India’s win in the second T20 as well.
