Most Probable playing XI for both the teams are:-
India playing XI: Ishan Kishan (wk), Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Rahul Tripathi, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik
New Zealand playing XI: Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy
The men in blue will be hoping to pull a fast one on the visitors, and New Zealand will be hoping to shock Indian fans with a spectacular recovery after a dismal showing against India in the ODI series. Both the teams will look to give their best, Although India is weighing more in the contest having a power packed team including inform players like Shubhman Gill the player who scored the most runs over the course of the three ODIs and totaled 360 runs at an astounding average of 180 and a strike rate of 128.57, including two centuries and also playing in home conditions will give an advantage to Men in Blue. Whereas on other side Black Caps includes players like Devon Conway who batted magnificently well in ODI’s and will look to have a comeback in the rivalry.
