The visitor team India need to win the 2nd T20 match against New Zealand to avoid a series defeat and get to play the decider on Feb 10.

After being handed a humiliating 80-run defeat by New Zealand in the opening match of the three-match T20 series on Wednesday, Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team will look for a comeback in the second match today, to be played at Eden Park.

Rohit Sharma’s team must win this match to keep the hopes of a series win alive, while a victory today will seal the series for the Kiwis.

 

India wins 2nd Twenty20 with 7 wickets against New Zealand at Eden Park:

 

In the first match of the ongoing T20 series, India’s much-famed batsmen as well as its bowlers failed to click. And the result was that the team crumbled under a clinical all-round show by the hosts. Kiwi opener Tim Seifert (84 off 43) hammered Indian bowlers all around the park on Wednesday.

So, it will be important for India to send him back packing early on Friday. Experienced pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya and Khaleel Ahmed had failed to contain Seifert in the first match.

Given the crunch situation that India is in right now, the team management could replace Khaleel with either Siddharth Kaul or Mohammad Siraj, both of whom had missed the opening game.

A lot will also depend on batsmen, who had meekly surrendered, as it were, to the Kiwis on Wednesday — no batsman other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni (39 off 31) could put up a respectable show. Despite going with eight batsmen, India were wrapped up for an embarrassing 139, and suffered an 80-run defeat — India’s biggest margin of loss in T20s.

Rahul Gandhi: Accepting Less Than Scrapping Farm Laws Will Be Deceit To Farmers

Published

The Congress has stepped up the demand of immediately scrapping the farm laws in the wake of the farmers’ protest in the national capital. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet,”Accepting less than scrapping of three black farm laws will be deceit to farmers and the country.”

The Congress leader’s reaction comes even as the meeting between the farmers and the government is going on to resolve the issue.

Talks between the Centre and over 34 farmer union representatives has started here, even as the farmers protest entered the eighth straight day with thousands sitting on different Delhi borders blocking essential supply chains to the city.

Like the previous round of talks held on December 1, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal are leading the meeting, which is expected to play a major role in farmers’ future course of action on whether they would continue the protest or withdraw it.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union, Bharatiya Kisan Sanyukta Morcha and Krantikari Kisan Union are among over the 34 farm union representatives taking part in the meeting, which started around 12.30 p.m.

The fourth round of meetings with the farmer leaders started at Vigyan Bhawan after the earlier talks remained inconclusive on December 1.

In the last meeting, the farmers’ representatives had unanimously rejected the Centre’s proposal of a special committee to resolve concerns over the farm laws.
