Team India will look forward to continuing their triumph in their first T20I victory and will continue the lead in the second match of the five-game series at the Eden Park on Sunday, following a thumping six-wicket victory.
Out of their last 8 T20Is, the men of Virat Kohli won seven, and 4 in the trot. And another victory in Auckland will give them a big chance of winning the series-which in their two previous attempts in New Zealand they could not do.
Thanks to the strong batting effort and to a strict 204-run goal, India won the opening win. All of the runs included KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, who went alongside a replacement service. He slammed a strike rate of 200 against an unbelieving 58 and bagged his first Player of the Match trophy, in particular, in an excellent feel.
Sure, on Friday, both side batsmen played a great game. Five fifties have been scored and thus the bowlers will play the decisive role in the match on Sunday in a venue with a high ranking of short-bound games.
In short, another score game with bowlers expected to make the difference between the two sides will be up for cards on Sunday.
Full match is on the cards for the second T20I in Auckland on 26 January both teams should expect better conditions. There is no rain in Auckland on Sunday, according to Accu weather. All-day long, Auckland will encounter sunny conditions that are predicted to become weather in the evening.
