The Indian Cricket Team will be hoping to win the decider on February 1st (Wednesday). In recent T20Is, India has had the upper hand over New Zealand. The Men in Blue must bring their “A” game, as they failed to live up to expectations in both T20Is.
New Zealand will be hoping that Glenn Phillips rediscovers his mojo, as the batter has been torn between attacking and defending, which has hurt the team. Michael Bracewell should be promoted up the order because he can thrash the spinners in the middle overs stage.
Following a string of domestic cricket performances for Mumbai and Delhi Capitals in the IPL, Prithvi Shaw was called up to the India squad ahead of the series. Shaw scored 193 Powerplay runs in nine innings of IPL 2022 this season, at a rate faster than any of his Indian counterparts.
With Hardik Pandya supporting Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan as the series’ first-choice openers, the Mumbai opener is on the bench, as Ishan Kishan is the first choice for wicketkeeping.
