IND vs NZ 2nd T20I Dream11 Prediction: Hardik Pandya-led Team India will face Mitchell Santner-spearheaded New Zealand in the second T20I of the three-match series at Lucknow’s Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium on 29th January 2023 (Sunday). The said contest will start at 7: 00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST). Down below is everything you need to know about the New Zealand tour of India 2022.
New Zealand plotted a clever spin-web in the first T20I in Ranchi to defeat India by 21 runs. The Indian batters were pushed on the backfoot from the start of the innings. The top order perished in the first three overs of the powerplay. India were three down for mere 15 runs. Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya did some rescue work and tried to bring the innings back on track with their 68-run partnership. However, they too were sent back in consecutive overs.
Washington Sundar continued his good form as he notched up his maiden T20I half-century. If it was not for Sundar, India’s defeat margin would have been a lot poorer. The Indians could score 155 runs in 20 overs in the loss of 9 wickets and lost the game by 21 runs.
Earlier in the match, New Zealand got off to a flying start thanks to Finn Allen, who scored 23-ball 35. Devon Conway held his end tightly and scored a clean half-century, before getting dismissed. All-rounder Daryl Mitchell played sensational innings as he mustered 59 runs in 30 balls to give Kiwis a perfect finish. They scored 176 runs in 20 overs in the loss of six wickets.
After getting white-washed in the ODI series 3-0, New Zealand has come up nicely in the T20I series. They are already 1-up in the lead. India, on the other side, would try to make a turn-around and keep this series alive by winning the second T20I.
