India, who is hosting the T20 World Cup 2016, is ready to face its first opponent of the tournament with a high spirit. A team who has already won an Asia Cup is much more proud to have T20 World Cup in their own homeland. This has enhanced the level of spirit of already confident team. Consecutive victories have strengthened the team with much more blindness among them. India has one of the best batting line up in the world. They have highly capable and mesmerising players till the 6th number. Therefore, India often score big runs on the ground. India is highly able to counter the pressure which was built on them and easily drove out itself from that trauma. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Shikkar Dhawan are the key players of the team. If India bat first then massive scores are expected from them as the batting order always smashed the bat. Although, the batting line up India threats the opposing team but for today’s match Tim Southee and Trent Boult could be very dangerous bowlers of team India as their past track record is quite alarming for the blue caps. India is expected to come out with the following squad:
Possible XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ashish Nehra.
New Zealand remained phenomenal through the last year as they have badly beaten Sri Lanka and Pakistan on their home ground. Blackcaps have skillful players like Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Colin Munro and Ross Taylor. The batting line of Kiwis is not less from India. Kiwis have a strong batting order till the 5th players whereas its talenders are highly capable of smashing a bat. New Zealand will be missing its scintillating former skipper Brandon McCullum, who has recently retired. But the remaining players have a potential to compensate the presence of McCullum. Both teams have done well in the past, but India is looking at a complete side. New Zealand must play very responsibly as it has been very hard to defeat India on their home ground. The match will be very tricky and thrilling as the crowd could make more pressure on the guest team. Kiwis are expected to play with the following squad:
Possible XI: Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (c), Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Grant Elliot, Luke Ronchi (wk), Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Mitchell McClenaghan and Ish Sodhi.
