Indian Cricket Team would be eyeing to win the decider on 1st February (Wednesday). Recently, India has the wood over New Zealand in T20Is. The Men in Blue need to bring their ‘A’ game as in both the T20Is, the team didn’t perform according to their credentials.
New Zealand would be hoping that Glenn Phillips rediscovers his mojo as the batter has looked in two minds about whether to attack or defend which has hurt the team. The Black Caps should promote Michael Bracewell up the order as he can thrash the spinners in the middle-overs stage.
Mukesh Kumar To Play Ranji Trophy Match
The speedster Mukesh Kumar has been released from the Indian squad. The pacer is all set to join Bengal team at Kolkata for the match against Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy 2022-23 season. The pacer is expected to be the next big thing as he has got good control over his line & length.
Enthralling Decider on Cards
Head Coach Rahul Dravid & Skipper Hardik Pandya has a tough job on hand as whether to bring back Umran Malik or not as the pitch in Ahmedabad assists the pacers as well as the spinners. Yuzvendra Chahal took a wicket in his 2 over spell where he was spot on with his line & length.
New Zealand needs Mark Chapman to play the role of an anchor at No.3 position. Skipper Mitchell Santner would be delighted with how the team took the match till the 20th over. It won’t be wrong to say that New Zealand holds the edge over India as they aren’t dependent on a particular individual.
