New Zealand have won the toss and have opted to bat
On 4th November of this Saturday, there have the chance to undo and it can be done by leveling the series post a big or heavy loss there will be of the 53-run. The opener Colin Munro is now on the top so there will be a lot of expectations obviously fans will be having from this star player.
In Kanpur, post a brilliant half-century in the final One-Day International Munro was undone by a beauty from Bhuvneshwar Kumar that rattled his stumps.
The usual doubt of the players like, Tom Latham and Kane Williamson are at the No.4 hung around, and this will be very little for the team New Zealand.
What New Zealand really need is a strong start, so the team can prove its worth in this line-up with some confidence the team can have to cut the loose.
On this eve of the match, Munro was the first to head out to the nets following New Zealand’s fielding drills and this entire scenario took place at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
Droning a tune, the opener seemed at ease, not being swamp down by the challenge which is the new move to the top of the order is posing.
This player is anyway having a good hit-out in the nets against some pace and this also showcased against the spin of Ish Sodhi. Glenn Phillips though delivered an amazing shot.
He got 5 out of 5 alongside a net bowler, before Tim Southee ran in and worked him.
What New Zealand has lacked in addition, this can be strong finisher down the order.
This is also the underwhelming tour that is for the Colin de Grandhomme, and it also includes the A tour. In the city, Pune, having played one good knock this is has been proved uninspiring for the side post of this situation.
The player Colin de Grandhomme need to collects some runs on his kitty which will be worked in this match.
India meanwhile thinks to present them casually in the match post their big win in Delhi. They didn’t train till now on the eve of this match.
In Delhi the 6 bowlers play well which includes, Hardik Pandya with lots of dew around, that is well paid off.
In Rajkot though, the Indian players’ already collected huge runs, with a batsman and an extra bowler are in great touch, in addition to the all-rounder in Pandya.
India’s attack at the top forced New Zealand and it comes in support of the team Delhi, which just cut back the runs. If Rajkot’s surface has little and it is also proved worth for the bowlers.
This will be repeated with the sun having beaten down hard for this day.
When: India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I, November 4, 19:00 IST
Venue: Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot
Expectations: A hot and dry day in Gujarat and the temperatures in the city is rising up to 36 in the day, but the situation will be cooling at the evening time.
This temperature will be work in favor of the team New Zealand and this match will be played in the latter half of the day. Pitch looked absolutely dry and it can be negligible green.
This will also help to the bowlers and batsmen and it will be also wonderful to see.
India’s strategy is going strong with 6 bowlers in Delhi going to work well for the team.
Although, with Ashish Nehra gone, this can be the slot for the player Mohammad Siraj and his batting is also still strong, as well he is blessed with some good runs, no need to say he is fully capable.
Though it is yet to decide to see whether the batting will be amazing or not but Dinesh Karthik can be this time back with the bang.
Young Glenn Phillips can have a worth chance today and Tom Bruce is another capable player of the team New Zealand.
The top order batsman won’t mind a middle-order role, but they till now played top four in the tour games.
