India vs New Zealand Match Details

Match: India vs New Zealand, 1st T20I | New Zealand tour of India  

Date: Friday, 27 Jan 2023 

Time: 18:30 (GMT+5) / 19:00 (GMT+5.5) / 19:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi      

India vs New Zealand Preview

  • With his left-arm wrist spin, Kuldeep Yadav will be a challenge to the batsmen from New Zealand.
  • For New Zealand, Devon Conway is likely to score the game’s first score.
  • In five T20Is, New Zealand hasn’t defeated India. 


On Friday night in Indore, the first of three IT20 matches pits India and New Zealand against one another. The ODI series between these two teams started on Tuesday when India defeated New Zealand 3-0. At 19:00 local time, the first match in the series begins at Ranchi’s JSCA International Stadium Complex. 

India has repeatedly demonstrated that they are still capable of defeating the top teams in this format even if they would be without many key players. They will be highly confident of winning this game by a 1-0 score.

The veteran trio of Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, and Tim Southee will still be unavailable for New Zealand following their lopsided losses in both of the most recent ODIs. It will be extremely difficult for this New Zealand team to win.

India vs New Zealand Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

The match will take place in cool, lovely conditions in Ranchi.

The team batting second has won two of the three T20Is that have been played at the JSCA International Stadium Complex. In this game, the team that wins the toss will probably choose to field first.

The JSCA International Stadium’s pitch in Ranchi is sluggish and dry. Seamers may receive some early action, while spinners will extract some turns and bounce off the surface.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Hardik Pandya will lead the team as the ODI format changes to IT20s, with Suryakumar Yadav serving as vice-captain. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are both absent from the lineup from the ODI series as they get ready for the Test series against Australia.

India is the favorite to win this match.


We anticipate New Zealand will once again struggle to stay up with India despite the new location, altered format, and modifications made by both teams in this favorable home environment. The Black Caps usually fight until the last end, as we saw in the final ODI, but player for player, they are the inferior team. We expect India to triumph in Indore.
