It is worth mentioning that India will be playing a T20I in New Zealand for the first time since 2009.

The 37-year-old, who has the most number of stumping to his name in global cricket with 190, once again showed his antics behind the stumps when he dismissed Jimmy Neesham during New Zealand's chase of 252 runs.

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




The International Cricket Council (ICC) has given a bit of advice to the famous Japanese artist Yoko Ono mentioning wicketkeeper of Indian cricket team MS Dhoni.

After suffering a comprehensive 4-1 one-day worldwide series loss, New Zealand will be aiming to regain some confidence in white-ball cricket when their three-match T20I series against India begins on Wednesday.

India will face New Zealand in 3-match T20I series.

What are the squads for the 1st T20I between India and New Zealand?

Team India will enter into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as one of the hot favourites. Apart from Pant, India are also likely to play both Dhoni and Karthik. Boult topped the rankings in January 2016, and is again on his way up, with only India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan ahead of him. On the other hand, in the two T20Is which Kaul has played, he has dismissed three batsmen at an average of 13, an economy rate of 6.50 and a strike rate of 12.
