Possible Game Xi, Betting Odds, Head to Head and Where to Look

| Today Headlines | News Today

Team India will face New Zealand in what will be an epic clash of the Super 12 stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at Dubai International Stadium in the United Arab Emirates on October 31. Captain Virat Kohli will be looking to get his team back into the tournament after a disappointing loss to Pakistan, while New Zealand will want to face India to ensure they qualify for the semi-final match.

The Group 2 game will be the most defining test of Kohli’s captaincy career and he will expect his men to do their best against the Kiwis. Both teams have faced losses at the hands of Pakistan, who have reached the semi-final stage after winning all three matches in the Super 12 phase of the tournament so far.

Both teams are among the favorites to reach the Group 2 semi-final stage and now the responsibility of fighting for second place in the semi-finals rests with India and New Zealand.

The game against Kane Williamson’s team will not be an easy task for Kohli and the India team, as they would also want to record a victory in their second outing in the Super 12 stage. Tim Southee and Trent Boult have been nemesis in the majors. Indian games.

Where to watch LIVE:

The match will be played at the Dubai International Stadium in the United Arab Emirates. The draw will take place at 7 pm (IST), while the match will begin at 7:30 pm (IST). The India vs New Zealand game will be broadcast LIVE on Star Sports Network.

The live broadcast of the match is available on Disney + Hotstar.

India will have a slight advantage as New Zealand’s batting lineup has so far been unable to shoot, with Captain Williamson not in his prime and Martin Guptill suffering a foot injury. He’s effective without being flamboyant, although Devon Conway is a flashy hitter. And here lies the opportunity for India, but for that, their players must implement the game plans perfectly, something they could not against Pakistan.

Even more important will be the execution of two players in whom the team management has invested a lot: a medium-fit Hardik Pandya and an out-of-shape Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who have been the weak links of this Indian team.

Hardik, who hasn’t been the cricketer everyone feared since his back injury, is playing to save his career. Bhuvneshwar could well be playing his last international tournament. His pace has dropped noticeably over the past two seasons and somewhere he hasn’t been a patch on what his youngest competitor, Deepak Chahar, has been in recent years.

India’s hitting has not been up to the task either, and Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul would like to show his skills against the Kiwis. Kohli will only hope to keep alive his form from the previous game against Pakistan, where he was the only one to score half a century for the India team.

India could bring Shardul Thakur into the fight against New Zealand to boost their performance in all respects.

In New Zealand’s case, they will need to quickly adapt to the pace of Dubai’s window if they are to defeat India when the teams meet in their crucial Twenty20 World Cup clash.

Key bowler Tim Southee said there is a lot to learn from his game against Pakistan. “We were not far against a quality team from Pakistan, but we have to put that aside. We have to look forward. It is such a short tournament and there are no easy matches,” he said.

The New Zealanders will play at Dubai International Cricket Stadium for the first time during the competition, while India lost on the same pitch in their opening match, which could give Kohli’s team an advantage.

Only the top two nations in each of the two groups in the Super 12 phase of the competition will advance to the last four.
