Match Prediction:

New Zealand will face Australia in the second T20I of the three-match series. The match will take place on February 23 at 11:40 a.m. IST at Auckland’s Eden Park.

Australia defeated New Zealand in the first T20I. Chasing a target of 215, Mitchell Marsh and Tim David helped the team pull off an incredible victory. Australia has been in excellent form in shorter formats, defeating West Indies 2-1 in the previous T20I series.

New Zealand, on the other hand, has been in excellent form. The team won the home T20I series against Pakistan 4-1. This is both sides’ final series before the T20 World Cup in June, thus every game counts.

Winning Chances:


Toss Prediction:

Chasing teams had an advantage here. In the last game, Australia sought a 200-plus score. Even in the Pakistan series, 200-plus scores were approximately average. Given the raw might of both sides, the captain who wins the toss should chase.

Weather Report:

It will be a cloudy day with 70% humidity and a 5% chance of precipitation. The temperature will fluctuate between 23 and 16 degrees.

Pitch Report:

The pitch will be ideal for run scoring. The ball will come on beautifully to the bat, and the surface should offer little to no movement. The spinners will also be under pressure due to their tiny boundaries.

Head to Head:

The last five encounters between the teams have been competitive, but Australia has been the more dominant side.

Australia Preview:

Australia are expected to remain unchanged in the second T20I. The team has completed the experiment phase and is now fielding a full-strength group, which will most likely be their starting XI in the T20 World Cup. We do not expect any changes to the playing XI for the second T20I.

Australia Squad Preview:

Travis Head, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh (c), Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis (wk), Tim David, Matthew Short, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

New Zealand Preview:

Trent Boult will return to New Zealand’s T20I playing XI after 15 months. Boult was included to the New Zealand squad for the second and third T20Is against Australia. Aside from him, Tim Southee will be out for the final two games.

New Zealand Squad Predicted:

Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Rachin Ravindra, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Josh Clarkson, Mitchell Santner (c), Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson

Australia vs New Zealand Prediction:

Australia will begin the encounter as favourites. The team boasts a powerful lineup that will be difficult to defeat. In the last game, Australia chased down a target of 216. Australia’s bowling is also significantly superior to New Zealand’s, making it extremely difficult for the visitors to defeat the hosts. For us, Australia is expected to lead the series 2-0.
