IND vs NZ 3rd T20I: Playing XI, Match Time, Venue & Stats

Ind vs NZ 3rd T20 playing XI, team news and overview


The IND vs NZ 3rd T20 of the series will be played at Hamilton on Sunday – 10th February. Both teams would be aiming to end the series on winning note and it would come down to which team handles the fine lines of nerves and pressure at crucial stages better.


New Zealand

New Zealand might bring James Neesham to strengthen their batting lineup which they lacked in the Friday’s game. Blair Tickner might also make his T20I debut in place of Lockie Ferguson, who has been rested for this game.


India got luxury at number 8 with Krunal Pandya who can score some quickfire runs. Indian management might face the tricky choice of who to pick and who to drop. Kuldeep Yadav is also in contention and India could go with 2 wrist spinners but will then have to drop one of their batsmen – possibly Dinesh Karthik.
