Can't help but feel something needs to be done about how important the toss is in t20 cricket.

Sounds like England Cricket is about to air all its dirty laundry...

Shame Boult & Conway are not available - India will miss Kohli, Rohit Sharma & Bumrah as well... really rate the big fella Jamieson, even on slower pitches like in India he's still going to be a threat with the awkward bounce he's able to get through his height, the bloke also swings the ball both ways.



NZ Squad : Kane Williamson {Cpt}, Tom Blundell, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, William Somerville, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, Will Young.

India Squad : Ajinkya Rahane {Cpt}, Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, K.S Bharat, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Prasidh Krishna, Axar Patel, Cheteshwar Pujara, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jayant Yadav, Suryakumar Yadav.

Good 50 odd by Gill so far... crucial toss for India to win, the Indian commentatorsrs said on this ground the best batting condition are in the 1st innings, then batting becomes much harder latter on.

Williamson is too conservative as a captain, Gill would've been out earlier if we'd taken that review, if it looks close go for it - Jamieson bowled in good areas on or just outside off stump most of the time, some went a bit wider of off stump, but that's much better than bowling on leg giving them easy runs... was pretty poor by our captain not to give Jamieson a couple of overs just before lunch, he was easily our best bowler in the morning session with his late swing & accuracy.
Our spinners bowled a bit too much on leg, Patel was especially guilty of it... hopefully in the 2nd session our spinner can focus on bowling more on off stump & just out side.

We got too tentative, lost a lot of wickets against their spinners by staying back in our crease too much, basically poking at the ball - instead of getting in line with the ball using positive movements... have to keep chipping out India's wickets, going to be very difficult for us to get 230 plus batting last.

INDIA : 14/1 - lead by 63 runs with 9 wickets remaining.
