India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I Dream 11 prediction

India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I Dream 11 prediction”

India were thoroughly outplayed in the series-opener in Wellington. India have all the running to do as they look to stage a comeback in the series.

The unsafe opening duo of Colin Munro and Seifert put the Indian pacers under tremendous pressure early on in the innings and dismissing them cheaply will be crucial for the visitors' chances. He constantly troubled Seifert outside of the off-stump and gave away just two singles off it.

Having missed most of the ODI series, Tim Southee made a welcome return to the fold with figures of 3-17 having opened the bowling and he will be looking to back that up with another solid performance in the second match with the Blackcaps set to be unchanged. "We believe that whatever the target is in front of us we can chase it down, but we just couldn't do it tonight", said a disappointed Rohit after the game. Kiwis scored 219/6 before dismissing India for 139, bagging victory by a massive 80 runs.

Probable playing 11 for India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav.

"India needs to bowl to their strengths which did not reflect during the (first) match".

Early signs are that the ball is moving around a bit and Bhuvneshwar Kumar makes full use of it in the first over of the day.

He also said that the team management could try pairing Krunal Pandya with other experienced spinners. It remains to be seen if he gets another shot at the same position or the team brings in Shubman Gill, who would be desperate to perform after the two failures in ODIs. All-rounder Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson and Ish Sodhi are the other key Zealanders to who may impress with their skills.

Probable playing 11 for New Zealand: Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson. For the record, New Zealand have lost four of their last five T20Is at Eden Park.
