India easily defeated New Zealand in the opening match, and even though the game was close until the final few deliveries, the outcome was never in doubt. The second Twenty20 encounter will be played in Ranchi, another high-scoring location that should suit the Indians well.
Here’s something you, as a bettor, should be aware of. Because several of New Zealand’s great players are unavailable, and India is likely to try out a few of its young players, this series is being played at a low level.
This could result in some surprising lineup adjustments or batting order alterations, so search for betting odds that offer a reasonable return because there are no guarantees here.
The match will take place on November 19, 2021, at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi.

India vs New Zealand Team Previews
In the first match, India did not make many changes to its batting lineup. Suryakumar Yadav followed Rohit and Rahul in playing freely. It is predicted that the Indian top order will be able to perform effectively and win matches when playing at home.
The preceding match was similarly decided by the toss, since India had the better of the conditions.
Ruturaj Gaikwad will be fascinating to see whether he has a bigger part in this series than just sitting on the bench. He is someone who could play a significant role in India’s future development.
India’s middle-order included Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, and Venkatesh Iyer. That may be viewed as a weakness that someone like Lockie Ferguson could exploit. This Indian squad isn’t particularly strong at hitting sixes, having only managed six in the previous encounter.
A wager against India to hit the most sixes is certainly something worth contemplating.
In the previous encounter, Axar Patel was given a chance to bat ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal, and this might be something India considers, albeit Chahal’s presence could expose India’s batting depth. You might want to consider Yuzvendra Chahal for the Top Bowler betting market.
India T20 Squad
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Surya Kumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Ashwin, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj
New Zealand has never beaten India in a T20 series in India, and it also got off to a shaky start in the previous match. The batsmen performed admirably, led by Martin Guptill and Mark Chapman, but the absence of Kane Williamson and Jimmy Neesham for the series is a significant setback.
Daryl Mitchell has yet to prove himself in the subcontinent, which is not always an easy task. The same can be said about Tim Seifert and Rachin Ravindra. Glenn Phillips has a track record of success in some T20 leagues, but he will struggle against the quality spinners.
The batting of New Zealand is a major concern, and we would avoid betting on it in this match.
The dew made life difficult for New Zealand in the previous match, negating its biggest strength. Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Mitch Santner, Tim Southee, and Todd Astle make up an outstanding bowling lineup.
We expect them to be more effective against Indian batting if they have a bit of luck with the toss.
Take a chance on Lockie Ferguson to be New Zealand’s top bowler in this match. He bowls at the death and takes a lot of wickets.
New Zealand T20 Squad
Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Glenn Phillips, Tim Seifert (wk), Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee (c), Todd Astle, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, James Neesham
Predicted XI: Daryl Mitchell, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Mark Chapman, Tim Seifert (wk), James Neesham, Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Todd Astle, Mitchell Santner
India vs New Zealand Toss Prediction
Chasing has been the preferred option in recent T20I matches, and we expect both captains to continue this trend in this match.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The JSCA is a high-scoring venue in all formats, and we anticipate bright sunshine and breezy conditions on match day, with no chance of rain. The JSCA pitch is good for batting, and India chased down 190+ in the only completed match played here. We anticipate that batters will appreciate the true bounce and carry on this surface. Spinners may have a chance in the middle overs.
India vs New Zealand Match Prediction
India is one of the most difficult teams to beat, especially at home. Ravi Ashwin has been in brilliant form recently, and we expect him to lead their bowling attack. They have a strong batting lineup with plenty of T20 experience. Because of their lack of experience in subcontinental conditions, New Zealand batters lack firepower in the middle order. We believe India will win both the match and the series.
India is the favourite to beat New Zealand at the odds of 1.30.
- Team India has a more powerful batting lineup.
- India has won eight of the last ten T20Is against New Zealand.
- New Zealand’s bowling lineup is quite strong and capable of springing a few surprises.
- In the middle overs, India’s spinners should be able to dominate New Zealand’s batting.
- So far, India has won both T20I matches played at this venue.
