New Zealand started the tournament with a victory in the three match T20I series against India. In the first T20I, the team dominated from the start and never let the opponent take control of the proceedings. Now, the second T20 game will be played at Eden Park on Friday Evening, with New Zealand aiming to wrap up the series and India hoping to bounce back after a disastrous defeat against Kiwis.
New Zealand would be hoping to carry their momentum into the second match of the series. The Black Caps played outstanding cricket in all the three departments of the game. Player like Tim Seifert have played exceptionally well in the T20 series opener against India on Wednesday in Wellington. The youngster smashed 84 runs off 43 balls with seven fours and six sixes to help the home side win the game.
Team India have suffered its worst ever T20I defeat in terms of runs against New Zealand. They were chasing 219 runs and were being comprehensively outplayed in all facets of the game. Now, Indian team must be willing to make a strong comeback especially considering an important tournament like the World Cup 2019 in England. The team is expected to make a few changes, with Shubman Gill, Siddarth Kaul and Kuldeep Yadav being the likely players to be drafted in.
India are expected to bounce back strongly when the odds are against them. We expect the match at Eden Park to be an absolute cracker with India are expected to level the series. We predict India will win this game here.
