New Zealand vs India 2nd Test Match Prediction and Preview

Who would have thought that the team winning the T20I series with a clean sweep will lose with a clean sweep in ODI and would lose their first test match of the test championship? But this thing happened with the No.1 test team i.e. India. New Zealand took on where they left off in the ODI series as they developed a clinical show to overthrow India by 10 wickets in the first of two Test matches against the visitors and they will be confident of backing that up in Christchurch. The Indian team was never in the game in the very first match, they were outclassed by the Kiwis from a big margin in all the three aspects. The Kiwis will be looking to make a series win with the final test starting from Saturday. Now let’s have a look at the preview for New Zealand vs India, 2nd Test. Download FSL11 app now.

Match Details:

Match: New Zealand vs India, 2nd Test, India tour of New Zealand, 2020

Date: Saturday, Feb 29th, 2020

Time: 04:00 am IST

Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Hagley Oval has so far gone into the kindness of the bowlers and the batsmen have found it tough to play their clarifying strokes against the bowling spearheads. The batters have to get settled on the wicket before they take shorts against bowlers. Also, the side winning the toss will look to bowl first to take benefit of the bowling friendly conditions at the start of the match. Picking out bowlers in this game will be best for daily fantasy app cricket.

Weather Report:

The weather forecast for the matchdays is not trustable enough. As there are high chances of rain throughout the 5 days and the match might get interrupted again and again. So 1-2 days might get abandoned due to rain.
