India tour of New Zealand 2022, NZ vs IND, 3rd T20I Match Preview and Fantasy Prediction
India tour of New Zealand 2022
NZ vs IND, 3rd T20I
IND vs NZ: The last and deciding match of the T20 series will be played between India and New Zealand (IND vs NZ) today. Team India is currently 1-0 ahead in this three-match T20 series. After the first match of this series, which was washed away by rain, Team India registered a one-sided victory in the second match.
Under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, Team India looked amazing in the second T20 match. In batting, Suryakumar Yadav rained fiercely, while in bowling, the entire unit showed a brilliant game. Even in the final match to be held in Napier today, India seems to have the upper hand.
Will Pant open with Ishan?
Talking about India, after the poor performance of the openers in the T20 World Cup, questions are being raised about the attitude of the team. The same situation was seen during the second match against New Zealand. If Suryakumar Yadav had not scored a century, the team would have barely been able to touch even 160 runs. Ishan Kishan started well, but could not play big innings. His strike rate was also nothing special. Rishabh Pant was dismissed after scoring six runs off 13 balls. Shreyas Iyer and Hardik Pandya were disappointed in the middle order.
Will Sanju and Umran Malik get a chance?
Now the question arises whether Team India will come out with a change in the third T20. There is a demand to bring fast bowler Umran Malik and wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson into the team. Now it has to be seen whether he gets a chance or not. Sanju Samson can prove to be a great option in the opening. He has played in this order in many matches in IPL. At the same time, Umran Malik had a chance to play on the tour of Ireland. Since then he has been waiting for his turn.
