Newzeland needs to win remaining two matches to reclaim the top spot in T20.
The 2nd T20 between IND AND NZ will take place at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
It is do or die match for the Kiwis as they are 1-0 down in three matches series against India after losing 1st T20 by 53 runs.
1st T20 proves to be a Newzeland nightmare as their biggest strength fielding tun out to their weakness as many as three catches were dropped, which cost them heavy as the Indian openers added 158 runs for the opening wicket. Their ground fielding wasn’t up to their normal standards either that is a reason India outplayed them in all three departments.
India’s strategy of going in with six bowlers in Delhi worked well for them. However, with Ashish Nehra gone, they might slot Mohammad Siraj in, given that the batting is still strong, and runs deep. If they, however, decide to add more meat to the batting, they might bring back Dinesh Karthik.
For India’s perspective, They have great chance to win their 3rd shortest format series in 5 years.
Note: The match will start at 7 PM.
