IND v NZ: Match Details

  • Date – Friday, November 19, 2021
  • Time – 7:00 PM IST
  • Venue – JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi

IND v NZ Match Preview:

Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav had good outings with the bat in the last match. Rohit has been spectacular in his last four outings along with KL Rahul. Venkatesh Iyer will be the player to watch out for in this match. 


R Ashwin provided crucial breakthroughs in the last game and was economical as well. Axar Patel bowled tight lines. India might not change the playing XI in this match. 

Martin Guptill scored a brilliant 70 and got good support from Mark Chapman, who made 63. If Daryl Mitchell continues his T20 World Cup, it will be tough for India to stop him. Watch out for Tim Seifert. 

Given the workload of players, there is a good chance New Zealand will field the same XI in this game as well. Mitchell Santner and Lockie Ferguson will be crucial.
