NZ-W vs IN-W: Both the sides will now travel to Auckland for their next clash on Friday. With New Zealand ahead in the series by 1-0, India needs to win both the remaining games to seal series. Both the teams will lock horns in the second T20I at Eden Park, Auckland on Friday morning which will be followed with the final game at Seddon Park, Hamilton on February 10, Sunday.
In the second game, India might rope in experienced Mithali Raj in the middle order to get some stability. The lack of character and inability to soak pressure was clearly visible at the Wellington and the side would be looking to work on it. For the hosts, Bernadine Bezuidenhout gets ruled out of the series after fracturing her finger in the practice session.
