IND vs NZ T-20 Match: The first T20 match of the three-match series will be played between India and New Zealand at the Sawai Jai Singh Stadium in Jaipur today (November 17). This match is important for both the teams. On the one hand, India’s team would like to avenge the defeat in the group match against New Zealand in the World Cup, while on the other hand New Zealand’s team would like to come out of the shock of the defeat against Australia in the T20 World Cup. The road to winning the series will also become easier for the team winning the first match. In such a situation, both the teams will give their full strength. Let us know who is dominant in both the teams.

The team winning the toss will get the advantage

The match is day-night and the dew factor plays a very important role on this ground. In such a situation, the role of the toss will be important. The team winning the toss would prefer to bowl first. Due to the dew, swing will not be easy for fast bowlers, so it should be easy to chase.

India heavy on New Zealand in batting

If we talk about batting in this match, then India’s team looks heavy on New Zealand. The way India’s team has played the last three matches of the T20 World Cup, its batsmen are seen in color. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma open and both are in form. If the team goes with Rituraj Gaikwad then it will also be a plus point. Rituraj had a great performance in the IPL. Apart from this, there are also aggressive batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan in the team. On the other hand, New Zealand’s batting in-form batsmen Ken Williamson and Daven Conway are not with the team in this series. New Zealand’s batting looks weak due to their lack.

New Zealand has the upper hand in bowling

If we look at the bowling point of view, then New Zealand’s team looks a little ahead of India. New Zealand have excellent swing bowlers like Tim Seifert, Adam Milne, Tim Southee. Milne has performed brilliantly in the World Cup. Apart from this, Ish Sodhi is also in color in spin. Talking about India, the main bowlers of the team Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been rested. His absence will be missed by the team. There is a lack of experience in fast bowling.

All-rounder will have an important role

All-rounders can play an important role in the match for both the teams. New Zealand have all-rounders like Glenn Phillips and Jimmy Neesham. India has rested Hardik Pandya. In such a situation, if Venkatesh Iyer, who came in the team for the first time, gets a chance, then his role will be important. However, New Zealand looks ahead in terms of all-rounders.
