The Indian T20 teams remains a question. Rohit Sharma does not have any intentions of giving up the T20 captaincy, but for now the team continues to be Hardik Pandya’s with Kohli and Rohit not in the side. Barring the opening pair, India’s T20 line-up seems alright with Suryakumar Yadav rocking the middle-order.
The New Zealand line-up too is low on experience. Their most experienced pacer is Lockie Ferguson while Mitchell Santner comes in as skipper. Ish Sodhi is fit though and he could find a spot in the coming games.

IND vs NZ Key Players
Finn Allen’s returns were very disappointing in the ODI series. Seen as a talent for the future, his first visit to the subcontinent does not seem to be going to well. Now, in a format where he can play with a little more freedom, Finn Allen will have to find a way to find some confidence as he gears up for bigger challenges in his career.
Shubman Gill was exceptional in the ODI series. Cementing his spot as the next young talent from India, Gill looks good in all three formats and is doing really well with a lot of intent. He is only three games old in the shortest format but is showing a lot of potential to do a lot for his side.
