IND vs NZ – On the tour of India, India won 4-1 in ODI series. After this, the 3-match T-20 series was started between India and New Zealand. The beginning of India’s T20 Series was a very bad one. In the first match of the series, India won by 80 runs. India won the toss in Wellington and invited New Zealand to bat first. New Zealand took an aggressive start from the start and scored a huge score of 219 in 20 overs. Chasing 220 runs, Rohit Sharma got out cheaply. Shikhar and Vijay Shankar tried to increase the score fast, but their efforts did not even bring color.
After the middle-order batting, India got stacked at 139 in 19.02 overs. Now there is a ‘do or die’ situation for India in second Twenty20, played on Friday (February 8) in Eden Park, Auckland. In such a situation, hopefully Captain Rohit Sharma will go with some changes in the playing XI. Let’s take a look at Team India’s possible play for the second Twenty20:
Rohit Sharma: Team India’s acting captain and opener is showing off-form after the fourth ODI. He has scored only 10 runs in the last three innings. Although considering his form in the last few months, he will remain in the team.
Shikhar Dhawan: In the T20 first innings, Pikhara scored 29 runs but it is difficult with him that he can not turn the good start into a big innings. If he stays on crease for a long time, then he is very useful for India. But team management would like to feed more and more matches before the World Cup. So Dhawan will also be in the next match.
Shubhaman Gill: can be given chance in the second T20 match after being flopped in the fourth and fifth ODI. Shubhaman is a fantastic batsman in the top order batting. In such a situation, they can be given a chance once again in Auckland.
Rishabh Pant: Rishabh Pant, who returned after the break, has not been able to show anything special in T20. Pant smashed 4 runs in 10 balls. However, in order to make their place in World Cup 2019, the player would like to return to the form in the second T20 game.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Dhoni first scored 39 runs in T20. But none of the batsmen could stand up with them. He will try to finish the match for India in the next T20.
Vijay Shankar: Dinesh Karthik did not make any impact in the first Twenty20 and was bowled out for 5 runs. At the same time, Vijay Shankar played special role as the batsman in the first T20. He scored two sixes and two fours in his 27-run knock. Standing at the crease in the second T20 will be useful for India.
Hardik Pandya: All-rounder Pandya failed with both ball and bat. But in Team India, they will still remain in their place. Especially because the pitch in Auckland will suit their bowling.
Kudal Pandya: In the first T20, Kurnool scored 37 runs and took one wicket. In the next match, this Orthodox spinner can play an important role for India. Therefore it is likely that the cruel play will remain in 11.
Bhuvneshwar kumar: Bhuvneshwar kumarr would like to forget his performance in the first Twenty20 tournament. He took one wicket with 47 runs in 4 overs. In the next match, he will return with complete rhythm. He will remain in the playing eleven.
Yuzvendra Chahal: Chahal was the most economical bowler in the first T20. He bowled at the economy rate of 8.75 and took a wicket with 35 runs in 4 overs. They will be more helpful to India on a friendly pitch at Auckland.
Kuldeep Yadav: India can make another change in the second T20. Instead of Khalil Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav can play in the team. He is very economical and can spoil the opposition team’s rhythm. His bowling will be very spectacular.
