After an exciting contest in Ranchi, the attention has shifted to Lucknow where Team India and New Zealand will travel for the second T20I, scheduled on January 29 (Sunday). While the series opener was a highly competitive affair, second match of the series is expected to be yet another blockbuster contest between top teams. Let’s look at the match prediction for the 2nd T20Is between India and New Zealand.
Hardik Pandya is likely to win the toss in second game as he was lucky twice in his last four attempts. Meanwhile, Mitchell Santner loss the toss in series opener and is likely to settle with similar result in the second game.
Team India is arguably a formidable force in home condition. They are coming into this series after outplaying Sri Lanka and likely to continue their dominance. Finn Allen (35), Devon Conway (52) and Daryl Mitchell (59) batted brilliantly and looking quite compatible in home condition. Indian bowlers will have to bring their A-game and undo their nature to leak too many runs in death over to restrict visitors at low score. However, Team India is expected to win the game.
Average first innings score and predicted powerplay score
The surface at Ekana Stadium is known for its sporting nature and players across departments will have to apply themselves well in order to make an impact. As per prediction, the powerplay score is likely to be around 45-55, while the first-inning score is expected to be between 178-188.
