India and New Zealand were the first 2 teams to hit the field after the T20I world Cup. India got the better of the kiwis in a thrilling contest on the opening night of the series. They have a good chance to win this match and seal the series before the last and final T20I. New Zealand would bring in their main players ahead of this match and try tobwin and square the series 1-1. Both teams will look to test their bench strength but would not want to lose matches at the same time. 

India Preview

India chased down a competitive target of 166 runs in the last over. Skipper Rohit Sharma (48 runs) and Surya Kumar Yadav (62 runs) scored the majority of runs and set up the chase. Venkatesh Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer struggled a bit but helped their team cross the line. They might be tested in this match if the top order loses a couple of early wickets. 

Ravi Ashwin and Bhuvi were the pick of the bowlers for India last night as they picked up 2 wickets each giving runs at less than 6 RPO. Deepak Chahar, Siraj, and Axar Patel were targeted by the batters in the last game. 

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Surya Kumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Ashwin, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand made a brilliant 109-run partnership for the second wicket after the early fall of Daryl Mitchell for duck. Martin Guptill (70 runs) and Mark Chapman (63 runs) were brilliant with the bat and looked in great touch. Their middle order struggled to accelerate and they finishes with just 164 runs after looking like reaching 180+ score at one point. 

Their bowlers were not able to stop the batters from scoring freely last night. Mitchell Santner and Lockie Ferguson came up with combined figures of 8-0-43-1. Tim Southee, Todd Astle, and Trent Boult were taken for runs and Daryl Mitchell was not able to defend 10 runs in the last over. 

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Daryl Mitchell, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Mark Chapman, Tim Seifert, James Neesham, Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Todd Astle, Mitchell Santner

Weather Conditions

JSCA is a good pitch to bat on and India chased down 190+ in the only completed match that took place here. We expect batters to enjoy the true bounce and carry on this surface. Spinners might have some purchase in the middle overs. 

Venue Details

JSCA is a high scoring venue across all formats and we expect bright sunshine and breezy weather on the match day with no chances of rain. 

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing has been the most preferred option in the T20I matches off late and we expect both captains to follow the trend in this match too. 

India is one of the toughest teams to beat on their home yards especially. Ravi Ashwin has been in scintillating form off late and we expect him to lead their bowling department. They have a good batting line-up with lot of experience in T20s. New Zealand batters lack the firepower in the middle order as they have very less experience in sub continetla conditions. We expect India to win this match and series. 

INDIA will win the match and win the series 2-0
