Jasprit Bumrah the Key

Jasprit Bumrah will be the crucial element in the Indian strategy to tame the Kiwis.

Jasprit Bumrah has proved to be the key bowler who can wreak havoc with the new ball, come back in short spells to break the partnership and choke runs in the slog overs. He is one bowler who can take wickets at vital moments and can also be depended for restricting the score in the death overs.

According to the playing conditions for playoffs - extra two hours are permitted beyond the regulation close time (18:00 hours GMT).

And beyond that, if the match referee thinks a result is possible on the day, he has the right to decide.
