IND vs NZ 3rd T20: Decisive T20 between India and Kiwis today – Team India will win the series!

IND vs NZ 3rd T20:  The decisive third T20 between New Zealand and India will be played at Napier today. This match is very important for both teams. Team India who won against the Kiwis in the second match… want to win this series too. On the other hand, New Zealand will be looking to save the series from losing the negi in this one. If India wins this match, the series will be 2-0. If the Kiwis win, the series will be tied at 1-1. The first T20 was canceled due to rain. 

Suriya alone in batting

In the second T20, the total runs scored by Team India were 191. Out of that Surya scored 111. All other batsmen combined. 80. Looking at this, it can be seen how much India’s batting is dependent on Suryakumar. Among the openers, Ishan seemed to be okay.. but Pant failed miserably. Shreyas Iyer unfortunately turned away as a hit wicket. Pandya did not play as much as expected. Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar came in the last over and got out after playing only one ball. However, Suriya is carrying the batting of Team India. I don’t know what will happen if he also fails. So the rest of the batters also need to swing the bat. 

Bowling OK OK

In the second match, Team India’s bowling went on like OK. Senior pacer Bhuvneshwar bowled sparingly and took a wicket in the first over. Mohammed Siraj looked fine with 2 wickets. But Arhadeep, who is the main pacer, was relieved. Apart from giving runs liberally, he did not take a single wicket. Among the spinners, Chahal impressed.. Washington Sundar failed. But part-timer Deepak Hooda exploded with 4 wickets. Overall the performance of the bowlers was impressive. But there is a need to perform as a team. 

Will they both get a chance!

In this series, India speedster Umran Malik and wicketkeeper batsman Sanju Samson will have a chance. Everyone thought that they would get it. But both of them did not play in the final team of the second match. Fans want to give Sanju a chance as Pant failed as an opener. Also, it is suggested that the young bowler Umran Malik should be included in the team. It remains to be seen whether they will be given a chance even in the last third T20.

Will New Zealand succeed!

New Zealand in the second T20 against India A collective failure. None of the batsmen except captain Kane Williamson did well. Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips and Daryl Mitchell failed to convert good starts into big scores. All the other batters were restricted to single digits. The team is not that effective in bowling. Senior bowler Tim Southee was the only one who put in an unremarkable performance. Lockie Ferguson took 2 wickets but scored huge runs. And the rest of the bowlers were overwhelmed by the sun. They ran with economy around 9. In order to win this match and level the series, the Kiwis will have to perform beyond their power. 

Kane distance

Due to taking an appointment with the doctor for some health tests.. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson will miss the final T20, said Gary Steed, the team’s coach. Tim Southee will be the caretaker captain for the third T20I.
