India ousts superstar; Kohli has to win against Kiwis

India will face New Zealand in one of the most important games of the T20 World Cup. The game will be played on Sunday at 7.30 p.m. at the Dubai International Stadium. Victory is essential for both teams competing in Group 2 to advance to the semi-finals. Defeat will be the way out. It is reported that the throw in the game will be decisive. The team that wins the throw and is voted first to bowl has the upper hand.

Indian team

It will be very difficult for India, who lost to Pakistan, to win against New Zealand. One of the main problems plaguing the team is the poor shape of the bowlers. Neither Bhuvneshwar Kumar nor Mohammad Shami rose to the same level against Pakistan. Although he will play Shami, it is likely that Shardul will replace Bhubaneswar. If three spinners are playing with two pacers, Ashwin will join the team. Other changes are unlikely.

New Zealand team

Injury disturbs New Zealand opener Martin Gupta has to be out due to injury. Pacer Loki Ferguson had already retired from the team. Adam Milne, who is replacing Ferguson, could play against India. Captain Kane Williamson is the main batsman. If Williamson can shine in the UAE square, India will be challenged.

Unhappy captain in the litter

Virat Kohli is considered the unlucky captain in the litter. Statistics show that Kohli was unlucky to win the throw. No other captain in India has lost so many litters. If Kohli does not win the throw in the decisive match, he will be criticized again. The two teams have faced each other in 16 T20 games so far and have each won eight. India have won the last five games.
