  • India vs New Zealand 2nd T20 preview Confident India look to claim series against Kiwis

India are coming into the match with one change in their playing XI with pacer Mohammed Siraj comes in place of Nehra.

The 30-year-old opening batsman had to take a backseat as partner Martin Guptill went about attacking the Indian bowling attack in the initial overs.

The Black Caps went on to reach 196/2, and after a steady opening over, India looked to mount their chase only to come undone when they lost both risky openers in the second over.

This is New Zealand's 100th worldwide match in India - only 4th visiting team to play these many matches in India after Australia (144), England (135) and West Indies (129).




Things looked ominous for India as the openers smashed three sixes between them to take the Black Caps to a position of dominance at 83 for naught by the halfway mark. India drafted in the debutant Mohammad Siraj in the place of Ashish Nehra who retired from worldwide cricket after the previous game. He struck 7 fours and 7 sixes in his brutal knock of 107 runs which came off just 58 deliveries. Munro also hit his 2nd T20I ton. Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum leads the list with 2140 runs. For India, the only other bowler to find success was Mohammad Siraj who picked up the wickets of Kane Williamson. A century partnership for the opening wicket got them off to the ideal start and although India's death bowlers brought things back at the end, Munro's century still ensured India needed to chase almost 200 to claim victory.

India: ViratKohli (C), Rohit Sharma, ShikharDhawan, ShreyasIyer, Dinesh Karthik, M.S. Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, YuzvendraChahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, JaspritBumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, K.L. Rahul, Manish Pandey and Mohammed Siraj. With the score standing at 11 for 2 in 2 overs, Captain Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer got into a partnership with the hope of chasing the huge total. While the required rate kept creeping up, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni could only make a difference to the margin of defeat.

New Zealand (Playing XI): Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Tom Bruce, Glenn Phillips (w), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult.

"There are going to be runs galore".
