India vs NZ 2nd T20i : Virat Kohli eyes for series win in Rajkot, Match Preview
Virat Kohli led team India defeated the Kiwis in the 1st T20I match in New Delhi by a margine of 58 runs, a prefect send off gift to vetran Ashish Nehra who played his last international match. Now the focus will shift to Rajkot where both the teams will clash for the 2nd and do-and-die match for both the teams. On one hand India would love to win the match and win the series 2-0 and therefore breaking the jinx of never winning a T20I series against the number one side in the shortest format, on the other hand Kiwis would eyes for a win and level the series 1-1 and keep it alive for the 3rd encounter. Only one T20I has been played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium and it was won by the side that fielded first. The pitch here has generally been excellent for batting and is known to remain true throughout a match. So taking this as well as the dew factor into account, the toss-winning team in this match may prefer to bowl first.
