It is the 12 months of the T20 World Cup and therefore, all the eye shifts to the shortest format. India, a side which has dominated Tests and T20Is, haven’t but discovered the template to boss this format and after they tackle New Zealand in their very own yard, the side might be put underneath the pump. New Zealand have at all times dominated India in T20Is and therefore, the upcoming series might be an amazing likelihood for Virat Kohli and firm to appropriate the reasonably bleak file.
In 11 matches against New Zealand, India have solely received three which makes their win proportion an abysmal 27.27. This is the worst for India against any side (minimal of 5 T20Is performed).
Not solely this, India has struggled in New Zealand situations because the side has a successful p.c of solely 20 – which makes it their worst in any nation with a minimal of 5 T20Is performed.
There has been a visual change to the best way India have been approaching T20Is within the current previous. The openers are going after the bowlers from the phrase go and this offers the proper momentum for the remaining of the batting order to observe. This method might be additional examined in New Zealand the place the pitches might have help for the bowlers as properly.
“We are chasing very well in T20 cricket. We need to do the same when batting first. I have some thoughts which I will share with Virat, Ravi and the management. We haven’t played many T20 internationals and I am confident by the World Cup we will be absolutely ready,” BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was quoted as saying by PTI.
