The first T20 at Eden Park turned out to be very high-scoring and it was India that came out victorious at the end of a hard-fought match. Both the teams batted well and there was not too much to choose between them. The toss certainly played a big factor as chasing is always a little easier at Eden Park than defending. All Kiwi batsmen got a lot of runs as so it is difficult to see any major change in their batting lineup of the next match. Not a single Kiwi bowler was able to stop Indian batsman from scoring runs. They had a very tough day and will need to make an adjustment to their game. The Indian bowlers started with some poor lines to the opening batsmen and paid heavily. They came back strongly later in the inning, though, to at least shave off 20 runs from the eventual total.
The bowling attacks of both the teams will want to make some adjustments and we may well see some changes to the playing eleven as well. It'll be the bowlers who'll play a decisive role at a venue that has produced high-scoring games with short boundaries. The pitch at Eden Park was absolutely brilliant to bat on, the spinners struggled to get anything from the surface and the margin of error was minuscule. The weather is expected to remain very good for cricket and the same surface is going to be used for the second match. The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Overall, the conditions remain heavily loaded in favor of the batsmen.
