India vs New Zealand 2nd T20 Match Prediction
Finally, the hosts get a break through, as New Zealand beats India in the first T20 match by 80 runs. With that victory, New Zealand now pilots the three match T20 series by 1-0. However, if India wins the second T20 match, the ongoing T20 series between two nations will level up. The 2nd T20 match India vs New Zealand is expected to be held at Eden Park, Auckland on 8th January 2019.
The downfall immediately started after the toss ceremony, when Rohit Sharma decided to ball first after winning the toss. The New Zealand opener Tim Seifert boldy crushed the Kiwi bowlers scoring 84 magnificent runs with the help of seven classy fours and six grand sixes. As a result, New Zealand finished at 219 for six in 20 overs.
Whereas, India instantly crashed their innings soon after the start when Rohit Sharma got caught at one runs. But, Shikhar Dhawan continued blowing Kiwi bowlers till he reached 29 when Lockie Ferguson cracked his wickets. It was a total fiasco then. Somehow, MS Dhoni resisted with his batting skills hitting 39 handy runs that dragged India to 139 all out in the 19th over. In the end, New Zealand won the first T20 match by 80 runs.
India will win. Though, India were beaten in the previous T20 match, but they have the potential to level up the ongoing series with 1-1. However, their bowling department should focus on their bowling skills and try different strategies to restrict Kiwi Batsmen to a short total.
Meanwhile, New Zealand will look forward to expand the series lead to 2-0. However, they should keep going with their winning momentum. Tim Southee can be a good asset for them in this game.
