|Match Date:||29th January 2020, Wednesday|
|Match Timing:||7.50 pm (12.30 pm IST)|
|Match Venue:||Seddon Park, Hamilton|
|Expected Crowd Turnout:||10,000|
India will want to seal the five-match T20I series when they face an out-of-form and depleted New Zealand at the Seddon Park, Hamilton on Wednesday. If they manage that, it will be the first time an Indian team wins a T20 series in New Zealand. Virat Kohli & Co breezed past the Kiwi’s in the first two T20I games of the bilateral tour, thanks to dominative performances from a flexible KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer.
Will an in-form Men in Blue, who are now unbeaten in 5 T20Is, seal their first T20I series in NZ? Or will the Black Caps return to winning ways in a miraculous manner?

India has won both the matches in the current series while chasing.|

KL Rahul has been in a fantastic form and has become India’s undisputed wicket-keeping choice. Rahul was explosive in the first match scoring 56 in just 27 balls and followed it up another half-century in the second match. In the last 5 innings before that, Rahul has scored- 91, 45, 54, 56 and 57*.
KL Rahul's first two T20Is as wicketkeeper:
56 vs New Zealand, 24 Jan 2020
57* vs New Zealand, 26 Jan 2020
KL Rahul is now the 1st player to score fifties in first two matches as a wicketkeeper in the history of T20I cricket. #NZvIND

NZ’s T Siefert can be used in the second team. Siefert has a good record against India scoring 173 runs in 5 matches with an average of 43.25 and strike rate of 160.18. His contribution of 33 (26) helped the Black Caps reach 133 against the Men in Blue. Not to forget, he took an incredible catch to dismiss Kohli in the 2nd game.
New Zealand’s openers have had a decent series against India. Martin Guptill had good starts in the two matches, scoring 63 runs in 2 matches at an average of 31.50. However, you can also replace him with Colin Munro since Guptill couldn’t convert his starts into a high score. Munro is the highest run-scorer against India in T20I scoring, 333 runs in 9 matches. He also has one century and 2 half-centuries versus India.
Ross Taylor is a must! He is a consistent runscorer, especially against India. He scored 54* in the first match and 18 in the second. Against India in T20Is, Taylor’s record is 255 in 10 matches (Avg: 36.42, SR: 130.76).
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is another must-have. The Delhi-batsman returned to the dugout for just 11 runs in the 2nd T20I and will be raring to play another good innings. Moreover, the skipper has scored 253 runs in T20I against NZ at an average of 42.16.
Shreyas Iyer has strengthened his case to play at the number 4 position with an explosive half-century in the first and a 33-ball 44 in the second T20I. He is currently the second-highest runscorer in the series with 102 runs; 11 behind topscorer KL Rahul.
However, Iyer may not get a chance to bat, if Rohit Sharma returns to his explosive form. Sharma has scored just 15 runs in 2 matches. It is highly unlike him, so expect a big score from the Hitman. Having him in one of your two teams will not do any harm. Sharma knows the pitch pretty well from his last visit here when he scored 38 in 32 balls.
New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santer has picked 10 wickets in 9 matches at a decent average of 22.90 versus India. Santer showed shades of his best self with a figure 0/19. Santer is crucial in giving NZ a good spin bowling option apart from Ish Sodhi making him a must-have.
Ravindra Jadeja finished economic figures of 2/18 in the second T20I. He picked the wicket of Colin de Grandhomme and Kane Williamson. Jadeja has not got any opportunity with the bat for the Men in Blue in the ongoing series.
Shivam Dube is among India’s new generation of allrounders. He scored 13 in 9 balls in the first T20I and hit the finishing runs with a six in the second match. With the ball, Dube has chipped in with 2 wickets in 2 games- Guptill in the first and Munro in the second T20I.
Jasprit Bumrah continued his economical displays in the second T20I. He conceded 21 runs and picked the wicket of Ross Taylor in the last over. Furthermore, Bumrah’s variations helped him to concede just 12 runs in the two death overs he bowled.
Ish Sodhi is a must considering he is NZ’s top wicket-taker; not only in this series (3 in 2 games) but also against India (14 in 9 T20Is). From India, Yuzvendra Chahal is India’s best spin option. While he has just 1 wicket in the current series, Chahal has a good record against NZ, picking 5 wickets in 7 T2OI with an economy of 7.96.
Tim Southee is the Kiwi’s best seamer with Lockie Ferguson and Trent Boult absent. The pacer returned with 2/20 in the 2nd T20I, including the wicket of Kohli. Southee has a good record against India with 9 wickets in 9 games.
Captain & Vice-Captain Choices
3 fifties in his last 3 T20Is and an explosive form means KL Rahul is our best captainship choice for the 3rd T20I. We have NZ opener M Guptill and R Jadeja as our VC choices. Guptill has scored well in both the matches and is expected to open with similarly. Jadeja has been an economical and great wicket-taking option as well. Not to forget, both of them are excellent fielders.
