Match Prediction: India has only lost 1 t20 match on their run of 11 matches they have played in 2016. They whitewashed Australian team by 3-0 in t20 series, beat Sri Lanka at Home by 2-1 and Won the every match in Asia Cup 2016 which was in t20 format, beating Pakistan, Bangladesh (2 Times), Sri Lanka and UAE. Indian Team is high on confidence to win the world t20 title. India needs to continue the same form in t20 world cup 2016 otherwise their 10 wins in last 11 matches counts for nothing.
Colin Munro, who has been recognised as the most sixes hitter in the first class innings. Munro has played T20 in Indian conditions. New Zealand already faced a defeat in T20 against Pakistan at the home ground but have bounced back and scored 2-1 in the month of January 2016 winning the entire series. New Zealand has players who can continue McCullum legacy, such as Martin Guptill, Grant Elliott, Corey Anderson and Ross Taylor, can give India a good fight.
MS Dhoni’s Indian squad is seen to be in an effective and impressive form from the past 11 matches. The noticeable players of the Indian team, such as Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh, M S Dhoni, all are in great forms. The terrific form of Virat Kohli from the past few months can be super dangerous for the Kiwis. Dhawan’s score of 73, which he made during the warm-up game against South Africa has boosted his confidence.
