The Kiwis are eager to bounce back after suffering a humiliating loss to India in the ODI series, where India beat New Zealand 3-0 in the last series. First India vs New Zealand t20 to be played in Ranchi on Friday, both teams would like to start with a win.

New Zealand has never beaten India in T20Is at home, so will New Zealand be able to break this record this time. It is not going to be easy for the kiwis to beat India at their home, although India have rested their star players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul for this series. But despite these, India’s team is very strong with new faces. In such a situation, New Zealand will have a good chance to make up for the loss they got in the previous series.

Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.

Is Prithvi Shaw being ignored?

In recent times, Prithvi Shaw hit his first triple for Mumbai in Ranji Trophy and he is also in good form due to which he was selected for the T20I series against New Zealand. But whether he will get a chance to play is very unlikely.

Talking to the press, Hardik Pandya, who is leading India in this series, said “Shaw will have to wait for his opportunity as Gill has done very well and was already part of the T20 team”. Gill is in great form at the moment, he made his T20I debut against Sri Lanka in which he scored 7 runs in the first match, followed by 5 and 46 in the 3rd T20I.

The performance of Ishan Kishan has not been special in T20I matches, in the last few matches, runs have not come out of his bat, still, getting a chance for him and not getting Prithvi saw raises questions.

The same Saw who got selected in the Indian team again after one year, they are less likely to get a chance in this series as well, yes if India wins the opening match and wins the series then it is possible that Prithvi Shaw will be seen playing in the last match.

New Zealand team squad for against India

Mitchell Santner (C), Finn Allen, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Mark Chapman,  Dane Cleaver, Jacob Duffy, Lockie Ferguson, Ben Lister, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell,  Michael Rippon, Henry Shipley, Ish Sodhi, Blair Tickner

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI

Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Mark Chapman, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner (c), Lockie Ferguson, Henry Shipley, Blair Tickner, Ish Sodhi

Devon Conway can be dangerous

Devon Conway can be dangerous, as he is also in good form. In the last match of the last ODI series, he was the only player from New Zealand to give some fight, he played a brilliant century innings. India will need to be careful with this player because just a few overs are enough to change the course of the match in T20 matches.
