Virat Kohli’s team need to produce another dramatic comeback as they prepare for a crucial match against New Zealand after losing their Super 12 opener to Pakistan in T20 World Cup. All eyes will be on the team combination as India attempts to break their losing streak against the BlackCaps.
On Sunday, October 31, India will face New Zealand in one of the most important Super 12 matches in Group 2 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium. Both nations are coming off losses to Pakistan. Who are now leading the group with three wins in as many games.
When India captain Virat Kohli addressed the media on the eve of the big-ticket clash in Dubai, he appeared cool and poised. While he was forcefully criticising the online harassment of Mohammed Shami in strong-worded speeches. The skipper made a few key statements that provided us a glimpse of his thoughts in the run-up to what will be a stern test of his character.
In 2021, India will need to make another remarkable comeback.
Virat Kohli’s captaincy reign in T20 World Cups did not begin well. In reality, he became the first Indian captain to lose a World Cup match to Pakistan. India were thrashed by a spirited Pakistan team led by Babar Azam, but casting out the Men in Blue after just one match is, to say the least, imprudent.
Whether it was the 36-all out in Adelaide or the Chennai Test thrashing of England, India has established a habit of coming back stronger after defeats in 2021. Virat Kohli’s players have the firepower to put the finest in the business to the test in the T20 World Cup, and there’s no reason why they can’t do it again.
