India vs New Zealand: T20I Series Schedule, Venue & Match Timings

India and New Zealand will lock horns in a three-match T20 worldwide contest, starting at Wellington on Wednesday, 6 February.

Martin Guptill has been ruled out of the entire T20I series against India, and Jimmy Neesham has been roped as his replacement in the side. Hotstar.com will live stream the match in India. Notably, India had won the ODI series that followed the T20I series by a comfortable 3-1 margin.

After praising the formidable top-order lineup in his column for ESPNCricinfo, Aakash has backed Ambati Rayudu for the No.4 spot saying that his gritty 90 in the fifth ODI against New Zealand in Wellington assured his ticket to England.

Rohit Sharma will be India's stand-in captain as Virat Kohli has been rested by the Board of Control for Cricket in India for the last two ODIs and the entire T20I series.

Not been part of the ODI series in Australia and New Zealand, Pant would be looking to make the most of this opportunity at the top of the order, something which even Dhawan mentioned about him during his interaction with the media.

Rayudu's performance will give him and the team confidence. The first T20 will be played tomorrow (February 5) at Wellington. In eight matches between the two sides, India have won only two with a win percentage of 25.

The 37-year-old, who has the most number of stumping to his name in worldwide 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 team will also be relieved to have Hardik Pandya back in the squad for it given them the cushion of playing both their wrist-spinners in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. So there is a chance of Siddarth Kaul getting a game in.
