ello and welcome to Sportstar’s coverage of the third T20I between India and New Zealand from Napier.
India favourites to win T20I series
Having taken a 1-0 series lead, India may be tempted to test its bench strength by picking Umran Malik and Sanju Samson in the third and final T20 against New Zealand. India was expected to try out a bunch of players after another World Cup debacle but if the team combination for the second T20 was any indication, the team seemed reluctant to start with a clean slate. If not for the individual brilliance of Suryakumar Yadav, India would have struggled to post 160 on Sunday and it would have been a grim reminder of its travails in the World Cup Down Under.
IND vs NZ Rain Update
So far so good as it isn’t raining at the moment. But occasional showers are predicted as the evening progresses in Napier.
