India vs New Zealand Match Details

Match: India vs New Zealand, 2nd T20I | New Zealand tour of India  

Date: Sunday, 29 Jan 2023 

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

Format: T20I

Venue: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow      

India vs New Zealand Preview

  • Daryl Mitchell’s (59*) and Devon Conway’s (52) contributions enabled New Zealand to take a 1-0 series lead.
  • With 47 runs in 34 balls, Suryakumar Yadav maintained his unrivalled T20I form.
  • In the last 5 T20Is, India has beaten New Zealand twice, drawn once, and lost once. 


On Sunday night in Lucknow, India will play New Zealand in the second IT20 of the series. New Zealand won the first game on Friday night in Ranchi after successfully defending their total of 176-6. At 19:00 local time, the second game of the series begins at the Ekana Cricket Stadium. 

In this game, India will try to improve on the fact that all of its fast bowlers were overpriced on Friday. In any format, they very seldom drop two straight games, thus we anticipate India to turn things around in this match.

New Zealand will enter this match with a lot of confidence after their bowlers put up some impressive stats in the opening match of the series. It will be more difficult to win against India, though.

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

Compared to Ranchi, the weather will be colder. The day before the game, showers are forecast for Lucknow. The outfield can become moist. 11 to 22 degrees Celsius will be the temperature range. Wind will be 5-7 km/h and coming from the west.

The team batting first has won all 5 Men’s T20I matches. The average score in the first inning is 157, 28 points more than in the second inning. The team that wins the toss will get to bat first.

The pitch is in the batters’ favour. Game scoring will likely be high.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Kuldeep Yadav, a left-arm wrist spinner, rejoined the team and made his first appearance in this format since August of last year when he faced the West Indies in Florida. We anticipate India to select the same lineup on a different pitch that should turn.

Recent form – L W L W T  

India’s Probable XI

Hardik Pandya (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Deepak Hooda, Kuldeep Yadav, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh  

New Zealand News & Probable Playing XIs

Few experts predicted New Zealand to win the inaugural IT20 on Friday after their lopsided losses in the previous two ODIs. We anticipate seeing the same starting XI in this game because it was a fantastic team effort with both the hitters and bowlers contributing. 

Recent form – W T L L W

New Zealand’s Probable XI

Mitchell Santner (C), Devon Conway (wk), Mark Chapman, Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Ish Sodhi, Michael Bracewell, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy
