India vs. New Zealand- 2nd T20I- Match Prediction 2023

by  Shashi Shukla  •  Last updated on 2023-01-29 02:19:09


In the second T20 international of the three-match series on Sunday, India will play against New Zealand. With two games left, New Zealand is presently leading the series 1-0 after winning the opening game by a score of 21 runs. New Zealand openers Devon Conway (52 off 35) and Finn Allen (35 off 23) got a solid start after India decided to put New Zealand into the batting after all before Darren Mitchell (59* off 30) lifted the team on his shoulders and surged ahead. The final over saw Mitchell add 27 runs, putting the total up to 176 runs.

In Lucknow, Hardik Pandya will attempt to extend his winning streak in the T20I series. The all-arounder has organized his men well so far and maintained his composure under pressure. Prithvi Shaw, Mukesh Kumar, Shivam Mavi, Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, and Shubman Gill are just a handful of the outstanding young players who Pandya would be eager to play.

The Indian batters lost early wickets despite having a solid score. Suryakumar Yadav flipped the momentum in India's favor with his 47 off 34, but as soon as he was dismissed, the wickets started to fall. Despite Washington Sundar's effort and first fifty runs, the Men in Blue were 21 runs short. New Zealand players had boosted their confidence and overcome the loss they faced in the ODI series against India.

Match Prediction:

Even though India lost the first match in the T20I series, they are still a stable team who can plan a good comeback and enter the winning streak. If the players rise to good form with bat and bowl, India has a good chance to win on their soil. New Zealand will be hoping to continue their win in this match and maintain the lead.


India vs. New Zealand- 2nd T20I- Match Preview

Match: India vs. New Zealand- 2nd T20I

Weather Report

On the day of the game, a constant 29°C temperature, 29% humidity, and an 8 km/h wind speed are forecast. Precipitation is not anticipated during the game.

Pitch Report

The Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium has a surface that is favorable to batting and will likely once again favor the batsmen. In the latter phases of the game, fast bowlers might benefit, while spinners will be helpful in the middle overs.


Toss Prediction

Batting first will be a wise choice in this pitch as the record of the chasing team is not that good here. The skipper winning the toss will be entering batting early and trying to put a huge total on the board for the opponents to chase.
