Preview :

India vs New Zealand: With the likes of Sunil Gavaskar calling for Rishabh Pant’s inclusion in the World Cup squad, the three-match T20I series presents a chance for him to prove his credentials.

The series presents an opportunity for Dinesh Karthik, who has done well as a finisher in the past but is still not a sure starter. Ambati Rayudu, however, grabbed his chance with a match-winning 90 runs in the fifth ODI, probably enough to seal a place in the middle-order.

In Virat Kohli’s absence, who has been rested, nineteen-year-old Shubman Gill may get a chance at number three again with glimpses of his much talked about talent but not settling in in the last two ODIs.

Besides Pant, the others who have joined the team for the T20s are spin all-rounder Krunal Pandya and Punjab pacer Siddharth Kaul.

In the absence of a senior member in Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj and Khaleel Ahmed haven’t stepped up and made themselves count.
