India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Match Preview: The first T20I match between India and New Zealand was sealed by team India led by Rohit Sharma after a few late hiccups. Despite missing big cricketers, a quality clash was seen between the two sides.
Both India and New Zealand have now moved to Jharkhand Ranchi for the second T20I match of the three matches series. The hosts will look to seal the T20I series by winning the 2nd match while the Kiwis will come all guns blazing to level the series.
The Men in Blues are unlikely to disturb the team combination in the second match. While New Zealand will certainly bring in premier spinner Ish Sodhi in place of Todd Astle and a few more changes could be forced.

India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Pitch Report:
In all likelihood, dew is once again going to be a huge factor for both teams. Win the toss and opt to field first has been the mantra in T20Is to successfully tackle the dew. The tweakers will be important for the teams. Boundaries are bigger, hence big-hitting wouldn’t be as easy as it was in the last match.
