IND vs NZ 2nd T20: One defeat….and Team India will have 3 big losses, the kingdom is at stake


Second T20 between India and New Zealand in Lucknow
One defeat will cost India 3 losses
Hardik Pandya also tested as T20 captain

New Delhi. The defeat in Ranchi T20 has made the road difficult for Team India in the T20 series against New Zealand. The second T20 will be played between the two teams in Lucknow. In this, the pressure will be on Team India more than New Zealand. Because one defeat can cause 3 big losses to India. First, the T20 series will slip out of his hands. This will be India’s first series defeat in this year. His reign will be in danger in the second T20 and his ambitions of becoming No.1 in all three formats may be dashed. In such a situation, India will have to be more careful in Lucknow.

Team India is currently at number-1 in the T20 rankings. But, India is just one rating point ahead of second-placed England. India has 267 points and England has 266 points. If India wins the Lucknow T20, then the series will become 1-1 and the winner will be decided by the third T20 to be held in Ahmedabad. But if Team India loses today’s match, then the series will slip out of hand and the danger of losing the T20 kingship will also loom over it.

India will have 3 losses due to losing Lucknow T20
If India loses the second T20 as well, then New Zealand will take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. After this defeat, India and England will have equal 266 rating points each. But on the basis of decimal points, India will remain at the first position in T20 rankings even after this defeat. But, if India loses in the third T20 to be held in Ahmedabad, then England will become number-1 in T20. In that case England will come in first place with 266 points and India will slide down to second place with 265 points. Along with this, he will also lose the first series in 2023.

Pandya will also lose the first series under the captaincy
It will also be important for Hardik Pandya. Because under his captaincy, India will lose the T20 series for the first time. Earlier, Hardik has won T20 series against Sri Lanka, New Zealand and Ireland under his captaincy. Pandya suffered his first defeat in T20 as captain in Ranchi itself. He has captained India in 9 T20s so far. Of these, 7 have won, one being a tie. That is, this match will also be important for Pandya as captain.

Desires of becoming number-1 in all three formats will be washed away
After the defeat in Lucknow T20, India’s hope of becoming number-1 in all three formats will also end. India is number-1 in ODI and T20. If New Zealand wins the last two matches, then number-1 will remain. India is in second place in Test rankings. He has to play 4 Test series from Australia in February-March. If India wins this Test series 2-0, then it will become number-1 in Tests as well.
