India vs New Zealand 1st 2020 T20 match preview from Auckland.

big picture

New Zealand has to hurt and how. The last time they entered the field they were beaten 3-0 in the tests in Australia and the last time they played a T20I it ended in a super-over loss to England. New Zealand led the T20I series 2-1 in the fifth game, and although England later suffered an innings loss in the test series, crossing the Tasman Sea significantly affected their confidence. New Zealand is now facing tough opposition in India to end home summer before landing again in Australia for three ODIs. This is the preview of India vs New Zealand 2020 1st T20

The India series will be “huge” for them to clarify a few things, as selector Gavin Larsen said: a best XI with several injured players and how to restore their reputation. First, they will be able to count on having defeated India 2-1 in the T20Is last year, with a similar bowling attack to take place in the upcoming series. The hosts recalled Hamish Bennett, who last played in 2017 caps, to fight the pace attack with Tim Southee, Blair Tickner and Scott Kuggeleijn. Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi form the spinning department. Where’s the rest? Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry are all injured. Another concern for her will be Santner’s form as he only selected one wicket in four test innings in Australia. However, there could be a different format for the left arm spinner, who scored his best T20I scores – 4 for 11 – against India in 2016. This is India vs New Zealand 2020 T20 series.

You can draw on more experience in the field department. Kane Williamson returns after missing the T20Is against England. Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Colin Munro are at the top and in the middle.

The series will also be the first major for both teams later this year in the T20 World Cup, with over 20 games each.

India is also without some injured players – Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar – but their depth in reserves has hardly ever been stronger. They are fed up after a 2-0 win over Sri Lanka at the T20Is and a strong Australian team that won 2-1 at the ODIs. You have a balanced bowling line-up with four quicks, two spinners and three all-rounders to choose from. With Samson replacing Dhawan in the 16-man squad, it remains to be seen whether he and Pandey will have a chance if Rishabh Pant appears as a wicket keeper and KL Rahul as a pure batsman.

In the spotlight

Hamish Bennett will already make his T20I debut with 17 caps. In the absence of the main New Zealand candidates, Bennett now has a big task against the Indian batting side, which doesn’t have as much experience in the lower middle class. Bennett could use his pace, bounce, and variation in the middle or at the end of time to curb India’s progress toward a large grand total. Bennett was 3:34 behind Auckland in the Super Smash final, New Zealand’s home T20 tournament, where he finished 17 headphones from 11 games and saved 7.20 as the leading wicket taker.

With Pandya not going to return to international cricket soon, India must have solid support for the T20 World Cup. They wear three all-rounders – Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar – and it will be a good test for Dube and Washington under New Zealand conditions after India have played their last home games. Both Dube and Washington could play in the XI, and India has to assess whether they need a punch or a bowling all-rounder in Australia later this year.

Teams probable news

New Zealand (probably): 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Colin Munro, 3 Tim Seifert (wk), 4 Kane Williamson (capt), 5 Ross Taylor, 6 Colin de Grandhomme / Daryl Mitchell, 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Ish Sodhi, 9 Tim Southee , 10 Scott Kuggeleijn, 11 Hamish Bennett

India only played five bowling options in its last T20I against Sri Lanka, but may have to secure a sixth place in a Eden highscoring park. Virat Kohli said on the eve of the game that the fact that KL Rahul remains in T20I gives them “much more balance” to play another batsman. In this case, they can place Manish Pandey in 5th place and two all-rounders in 6th and 7th places from Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar. India vs New Zealand 2020

Pitch and conditions

The Super Over against England was recently held in Auckland. Both teams scored over 13 years in a rain-trimmed game. Clouds and a little drizzle can be expected in the morning and evening, which could affect the local time start at 7:50 p.m. Since heavy rain is not expected, we should get a game with reduced overs.
