India vs New Zealand: T20I Series Schedule, Venue & Match Timings

  • MS Dhoni is set to return for India

It wouldn't be wrong to say that India will include the three-match series as part of their curriculum for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019's preparations. There isn't an immediate "T20" context to the series, but both sides will still try to add some 50-over context to proceedings. BCCI regularly shares a glimpse from the show after every match India wins.

If India manage to resist their temptation of playing a left-arm pacer, Kaul should take the new ball alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar at Wellington. However, Mithali will continue to be in focus and it would be interesting to see what role she plays with the bat in the first match, especially after she was earlier criticised for the team's slow strike-rate.

India's squad for the World Cup is almost settled. The T20I series will be an ideal way for the men in blue to test the bench strength. Dinesh Karthik too will be keen to hold on to his spot as the second wicket-keeper.

The visitors have already sealed the ODI series 4-1 and would like to end the tour on a high.

Rayudu's performance will give him and the team confidence. It helps that Virat Kohli is resting.

Cautions Pick: Shubman Gill is likely to miss out for the 1st T20I as he might be replaced by Pant. It's also a chance for the duo to put their names up for the World Cup selection, in case an opening comes their way. They do hold an upper hand over India in the shortest format. New Zealand have been in mixed T20 form coming into this series.

They were rampant against Sri Lanka at home completing a whitewash. What Rohit Sharma is to India, Colin Munro is to New Zealand. For that, they'll have to play spin better. The manner in which the Kiwi batsmen face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal would effectively decide the fate of the series. The challenge should be slightly easier in T20s, and the hosts will also be relieved that India doesn't have someone like Shami to support Bhuvneshwar.

The left-handed opener was woefully off-colour in the ODI series and would have been dropped if not for the injury blow to his partner Martin Guptill.

Fast bowler Trent Boult is also missing for the Black Caps, but all-rounder James Neesham has been called up to the squad. Ish Sodhi should slot right into the XI along with Mitchell Santner.

Martin Guptill was on Monday ruled out of the New Zealand side for the Twenty20 global series against India after failing to recover from a back injury.
