This is a Group 2 match, and the first encounter of the Super-10s. India are the favourites going into the tournament, but New Zealand can take immense confidence from the fact that India have never beaten them in a Twenty20 International (T20I). India will be aware of this fact as well, and will doubtless look to remedy that. New Zealand are without Brendon McCullum though, someone who has traditionally done well against India.

Regardless of what happens in the match, one can expect a high-octane encounter to kick off the Super-10s. India start the match as favourites, but New Zealand are likely to be close contenders. These two teams could be the semi-finalists from Group 2, which makes this a potential precursor to the ICC World T20 2016 final.
