Now the second match is going to be held in Lucknow. Team India is preparing to tie the three match series here. Team India must win this match if they want to win this series. Captain Hardik Pandya and Vice Captain Suryakumar Yadav will have to show their strength in this match.
However, the same thing happened in India vs New Zealand match on January 29, 2020. The format is also T20. That is, exactly 3 years ago India and New Zealand teams met in a T20 match like this time.

This is a match that Indian fans will never forget. Now is the time for Team India to remember this. That success will have to be repeated again.
When the two teams met 3 years ago, India took a 2-0 lead in the 5-match series. The third match of the series was played in Hamilton. There India scored 179 runs with the help of Rohit Sharma’s brilliant innings of 65 runs. New Zealand also gave a befitting reply. Captain Kane Williamson’s brilliant innings of 95 runs set the pace for victory.
9 runs are required in the last over. But Mohammad Shami tied the match by dismissing Williamson first and Ross Taylor off the last ball.
Rohit 2 sixes in a row..
What happened next will never be forgotten by Indian fans. New Zealand scored 17 runs in the super over. In response to this, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul could score only 8 runs in 4 balls. While India needed 10 runs off the last two balls, Rohit Sharma hit two sensational sixes to give India a memorable victory.
With this victory, India won the T20 series in New Zealand for the first time. Team India is looking to escape from the series defeat this time. For this, on the third anniversary of that match, Team India has to do something like this. Better to do it without super over. However, in the playing eleven for this match, only Yuzvendra Chahal is part of the current squad. While Hardik Pandya was sidelined due to injury, Suryakumar Yadav did not make his debut till then. In any case, both of them have the responsibility to win the team with their performance.
