India vs New Zealand 2nd T20I Match Details
Date: 19th of November 2021
Format: Twenty20 International
Match Time: 18:00 IST
Stadium: Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur

This is quite a big match for India. The two tests in this series will form part of the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship and New Zealand defeated India in the very first ICC World Test Championship final earlier in the year. India will be looking to bounce back after a very disappointing T20 World Cup campaign, while New Zealand will be looking to capitalise on a run of good form during their campaign.

IND vs NZ Tips & Prediction

We are talking about two teams in good form that have been consistent over the past 5 years against other strong cricket-playing nations. These two teams play at a level where it can honestly go either way sometimes. Over the past two years, both teams have been quite successful in the Test arena, but New Zealand has shown significant dominance – including defeating India in both a test series and in the ICC Test World Championship final. With India still reeling from a very disappointing ICC T20 World Cup and New Zealand currently at the top of their game, we think New Zealand will have the upper hand despite playing in India.

However, this is a rather short series. We think New Zealand will win the T20I series 2 – 1 and the test series will likely be a 1 – 1 draw thanks to a bit of local home-field advantage for India. We can also think the test matches will go for all 5 days meaning plenty of exciting India vs New Zealand betting opportunities.

Team News

India

Prior to India’s shock exit from the ICC T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli announced he would be stepping down as the T20 skipper. It appears the prolific batsman may be taking a break from the short game as he has not been added to the T20 squad. Rohit Sharma has been announced as the new Indian T20I captain. If the Indian test line-up is important for your India vs New Zealand betting strategy, you’ll have to wait a little longer as the BCCI is yet to announce the squad.

India Squad for T20I:

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Avesh Khan, Ishan Kishan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Suryakumar Yadav
 

New Zealand

Right arm quick Adam Milne has been left out of the T20I squad but has been announced as injury cover for the series. Trent Boult and Colin de Grandhomme have both pulled out of this series due to COVID-19 bubble fatigue.

New Zealand Squad for T20I:

Kane Williamson (c), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Kyle Jamieson, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee

Key Players

When making an India vs New Zealand prediction, knowing the key players is highly influential. It’s important to know who is consistently producing quality performances and which players are known to succeed between these teams. We’ve gone ahead and identified several key players who we think will be high performers and who will likely play a part in your India vs New Zealand betting strategy.

India

  • Rohit Sharma – the new Indian skipper is a tremendous test batsman but it’s in the T20I’s that we expect him to do the most damage against New Zealand. Rohit Sharm has proven to be an expert T20 player and strategist with 5 title wins in the IPL. Sharma averages 32.66 and has scored 4 T20I centuries. Of all the big cricket-playing nations, Sharma has performed better against New Zealand than most other nations. He averages 29.33 and is the 3rd highest Indian run-scorer against NZ in that format.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin – a highly effective bowling allrounder, Ashwin has taken 52 test wickets against New Zealand using his unique Indian street cricket techniques such as the Soduku ball. He has taken almost 60 T20I wickets also but hasn’t played much of the short form against New Zealand. His bowling is particularly lethal in India, where he has taken more than 280 wickets at an average of 21.89. Ashwin is a handy late order batsman too and averages a very impressive 30.75 in T20I.

New Zealand

  • Kane Williamson – the 31-year-old is well and truly on his way to becoming the greatest batsman in New Zealand history. He has already scored more test centuries than any other Kiwi batsman – 24 tons – and currently holds the highest New Zealand test batting average with 53.95. Williamson also happens to average 32.54 against India in T20 Internationals, with a strike rate of almost 140.
  • Tim Southee – the tall swing bowler made his test debut young at 19 years old and has since gone on to take 314 wickets, including 44 against India. In only 5 innings in India, Southee has taken 12 wickets including an excellent 7/64. The T20 game typically doesn’t suit the quicks too much but Southee boasts an impressive 106 wickets fat 24.58. Injuries have been an issue in his career, yet he has still proven to be effective in any condition.

Form

When determining your India vs New Zealand betting strategy, cricket form can be a great indicator of who will hit the ground running in this series. Both teams found themselves in the same group stage during the ICC T20 World Cup. During that stage, New Zealand defeated India by 8 wickets in a very comfortable run chase. India could only muster 110 against the Kiwis who knocked out the runs in under 15 overs. New Zealand was able to reach the final, where India failed to make it past the group stage. New Zealand is going into this T20 series in immense form while India will certainly be feeling rather deflated.

In the test match arena, New Zealand last played in June 2021 and was in flying form. Not only did they defeat India in the ICC World Test Championship and won their previous 4 test series before that. The test series wins included clean sweeps of the West Indies, Pakistan, and India. India, on the other hand, won most of their test series over the last 2 years but performed with a mixture of dominance and laziness with resulted in a few losses and draws. Both teams were in good form over the past 24 months.

Key Stats for India vs New Zealand

As cricket punters, we do love statistics, don’t we? We love to work them out, learn about them, and talk about them. However, key stats are actually an important part of making an informed cricket match betting prediction. Stats give us key insights into player form, performance history, and the strengths/weaknesses of both individuals and teams overall.

Here are a few key stats to aid your India vs New Zealand betting strategy.

  • Leading from the Front – the 2nd and 3rd highest run scorers between these teams are skippers Williamson and Sharma. Williamson has scored 358 runs from 12 innings while Sharma is nipping at his heels with 352 runs from 14 innings. For the record, the highest run-scorer is New Zealand’s Colin Munro with 426 runs from 12 innings.
  • 4fer – in the history of Twenty20 cricket between these teams, a four-wicket haul has only occurred 3 times. All three came from New Zealand bowlers. No Indian bowler has managed to take more than 3 wickets against New Zealand.
