T20 World Cup 2021: Team India’s big tension averted! This deadly New Zealand batsman will be out of the next match


New Delhi: The Indian team, captained by Virat Kohli, had to face an embarrassing defeat by 10 wickets against Pakistan in their very first T20 World Cup match. To forget the loss of this match, now Team India will face New Zealand in the next match. Now India will have to beat New Zealand at any cost to stay in the tournament. A big news has come for Team India just before this match.

This dangerous batsman out

India’s next match in the ICC T20 World Cup is to be held on Sunday, 31 October against New Zealand. Even before this match, the New Zealand team has suffered a major setback as the team’s opener batsman Martin Guptill’s toe injury has made his play almost uncertain. In view of this, New Zealand may have to suffer in the big match with India. Now it has become easier for Team India to win this match.

Injury against Pakistan

In the match between New Zealand and Pakistan at Sharjah ground, Guptill scored 20 runs in 17 balls. During the powerplay of this match, a ball from Haris Rauf hit Guptill’s leg and he got injured. New Zealand team lost this match to Pakistan by five wickets. After the match, New Zealand coach Gary Stead said, “Guptill, who was injured at the end of the game, looked a bit uncomfortable and we are monitoring his injury.” It is difficult to say about the injury in the coming 24 to 48 hours. At the same time, New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson is already injured due to muscle problem and that is why he did not play in the match against Pakistan.

This bowler was also out

New Zealand’s T20 World Cup campaign suffered a major setback when fast bowler Lockie Ferguson was ruled out of the mega event with a ‘grade II’ calf injury ahead of the team’s first match against Pakistan on Tuesday. This news is very good from India’s point of view because in the next match there was a big threat to Team India from this deadly bowler. Now two big players of New Zealand can be out against India. In such a situation, Team India would like to win and move forward.

Need to win over New Zealand

It is very important for India to win against Pakistan. The reason behind this is that even if India loses this match, then it will almost be out of the race for the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the first match. This is Pakistan’s first win over India in the T20 World Cup. Earlier, after losing the toss, opting to bat, the start of the Indian team was not good. India had given a target of 152 runs to Pakistan. In response, the Pakistan team, chasing 152 runs, completed the target in 17.5 overs.
