The hosts aim for series parity, concentrate on India's starters

It makes perfect sense for India to start their T20I innings with Prithvi Shaw based solely on recent statistics. But the management was compelled to give these two young players a chance after benching Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul due to Ishan Kishan's efforts in the shortest format last year in the home matches and Shubman Gill's spectacular ascent in ODI cricket over the past 12 months. In the four T20I cricket matches India has played so far in 2023, they haven't been able to seize the chance.

At the Wankhede against Sri Lanka, Kishan scored a shaky 37, while Gill scored a less-than-stellar 46 in Rajkot against the same opponent. In the other three games, including the one on Friday (January 27) in Ranchi against New Zealand in the same game when the New Zealand openers contributed a combined 87 off 58, both batsmen were unable to get going. Although it's reasonable to say that India's redesigned T20I team is gradually taking shape, their opening dilemma is still up in the air.

The futures of Rohit, Rahul, and Virat Kohli in this format are uncertain, but cries for Shaw's participation are getting louder, particularly now that Kishan and Gill are having trouble securing their berths. It should be simpler for the management to give Shaw a chance now that Ruturaj Gaikwad has been abruptly removed from the series. But will it arrive in Lucknow on Sunday? If it doesn't, it's safe to assume that it might happen at least in the series finale if Gill and Kishan struggle in the second T20I.

If India wants to tie the series, they will also need to play better with the ball in game two. Every single pacer in Ranchi was destroyed as the spinners went about their business. On the other hand, New Zealand would be encouraged by their performance, especially after failing to win an ODI throughout the tour. Mitchell Santner appeared to be unplayable on that surface, and Daryl Mitchell, who had previously struggled to score runs, delivered a crucial blow. Given that India rarely fails to win trophies at home, if they are able to duplicate their achievement, it will be a fantastic outcome.

When: India vs New Zealand, January 29, 7 PM local time

Where: Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow

What to expect: During the game, temperatures are anticipated to be lower. The quantity of turn offered in Ranchi surprised both captains, but things might be different in Lucknow. It has been almost 11 months since a T20I was held at this location, during which India crushed 199/2. In a 40-over match that they also played in October, South Africa and India both scored more than six per over.

Cricket betting movements 

Changes in the odds and lines that bookmakers are offering for a particular cricket match or event are referred to as "cricket betting movements." A number of variables, such as team performance, player form, injury reports, and weather conditions, among others, can affect these moves.

Betting movements can significantly affect how a cricket wager turns out because they might reveal crucial information about which team or player is expected to win. For instance, if the odds for one team start to decrease (become less favorable), this may mean that more bets are being put on that team, indicating that bookmakers think they have a better chance of winning.
