The T20 World Cup is not going very well for the Indian team. Last Sunday, they lost their first match against Pakistan. None of the Indian players performed well. The defeat has reduced their chances of qualifying for Playoffs. They will be playing their second match tomorrow on 30th October against New Zealand. The match will be played at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. The match will be played in the evening from 7:30 PM.
After their loss against Pakistan in the first match, India will play their second T20 match against New Zealand tomorrow. In the last match, the Indian team scored 151 runs with a loss of 7 wickets. The highest score was made by the captain Virat Kohli.
He hit 57 runs with 1 six and 5 boundaries. In the second innings, Pakistan chased the score in 17.5 wickets without any wicket loss. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan made a partnership of 152 runs. Virat Kohli and the team will be looking forward to getting their first win of the World Cup 2021 against New Zealand.
Just like team India, New Zealand also lost their first match against Pakistan. The New Zealand team hit 134 runs in the first innings with a loss of 8 wickets. Pakistan chased the score in 18.4 overs with a loss of 5 wickets. They will be aiming to win their first match as losing this one will also reduce their chances to go to the semi-finals.
Kane Williamson has a huge pressure on him and none of the teams can afford to lose which makes the game even tougher for both. The captaincy skills of both Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli will be at stake.

Ind Vs Nz T20 World Cup Pitch Report
The Dubai international cricket stadium has always been favorable for batsmen. We are expecting that it will help batsmen for tomorrow too. Spin bowlers might be proven handy. We are expecting a score of around 170 runs in the first innings. However, the chasing team has won 60 percent winning chances on this ground.
Ind Vs Nz Top Picks
Lockie Ferguson – He is a very good bowler and can bowl well under pressure. He has the potential to take wickets in the worst conditions. He has got speed and bowls very fast.
Kane Williamson – Kane Williamson is a right-handed batsman from New Zealand. He is the guy who can handle the whole match alone with his bat. He is a brilliant batsman and can turn the tables around.
Virat Kohli – The Indian skipper is a great batsman and got the potential to put a big score for defenders to chase. Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world out there and he can surely make some big hits in the match.
Rohit Sharma – Along with Virat Kohli, we also have Rohit Sharma in the team who is very famous for his destructive batting skills. His batting skills have got him his nickname ‘The Hitman’. Though he couldn’t perform well in the last match against Pakistan, we are hoping to see his comeback in tomorrow’s match.
