After losing the first T20 in Ranchi, the danger for Team India in Lucknow has doubled. Now the question is not just to save the T20 series, but much more than that. This is the reason why it is forbidden for Team India to lose today. Because defeat will not bring only the pain of losing the series. Due to this, the danger of shaking the kingdom of the Indian team in T20 will also increase.
The second match of the T20 series between India and New Zealand will be played in Lucknow today. This will be the third T20 match of Team India on this ground. And New Zealand will be seen playing for the first time in Lucknow. If we talk about the Indian camp, then there are only 3 players from Hardik Pandya’s team, who were part of the T20 team last time when Team India played in Lucknow.
today’s big news
Losing is forbidden for Team India today!
It is necessary for Team India to win in Lucknow today. Not only to save the series but also to save his kingdom from shaking in ODIs. If India wins in Lucknow today, then the T20 series will be decided in Motera. But, if we lose today, then the series will be lost, the danger of clean sweep will also remain. And, if there is a clean sweep, then his reign in T20 will go away from the Indian team.
The danger of snatching the T20 kingship from the Indian team
India currently has 267 points in the ICC T20 rankings and is the number one team. At the same time, England is at number two with 266 rating points. If New Zealand wins the series by defeating India in Lucknow, then the rating points of India and England will be 266-266. But on the basis of decimal calculation, India will still remain number one. But, the danger of Badshah’s departure will increase, which can be possible with a clean sweep of New Zealand in the last T20 at Motera. If New Zealand makes a clean sweep, then India will have 265 rating points. And, England will become the number one team with 266 points.
