Cricket Free Tips | India vs New Zealand, 2021: 2nd T20I

India will play New Zealand in the 2ndT20I of the series today. India held their nerve to win the first T20I by five wickets and take a 1-0 lead in the series. In the run-chase, Suryakumar Yadav’s important half-century helped them win. Despite the substandard bowling efforts of Mohammad Siraj and Deepak Chahar, Rohit Sharma and his team are likely have the same playing XI for this match.

The runners-up in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2021, New Zealand, gave it their all against India in the opening T20I but came up short. Martin Guptill and Mark Chapman had excellent innings with the bat, but Trent Boult’s impressive bowling stint couldn’t save them from losing the match. They need to win this game to stay in the series.


The weather will be foggy, and rain is probable. The temperature will be in the mid-20s Celsius, with humidity in the low-70s.


Ranchi’s pitch has been reasonably good for batting. The average score at the location is 152, indicating that an exciting bat-and-ball match is on the card.
