India's Predicted Playing XI for 1st T20I: Sportsrush presents before you India's playing XI for the first T20I against New Zealand.

New Zealand and India begin their three-game series at Westpac Stadium tomorrow evening, following the White Ferns game against India women.

What time does the 1st T20I between India vs New Zealand start? An MS Dhoni-led side was thrashed 2-0 in a two-match series in 2008-09.

Hardik Pandya showed why he is considered a risky player when he smashed a match winning knock of 22 balls 45 runs.


The visitors outclassed the Black Caps 4-1 in the ODI series and will be looking to wrap up the T20I series to end the season on a winning note. There is a possibility of all three of them featuring in the match. Speaking during the press conference ahead of the first T20I, Dhawan had laid emphasis on change in mindset working for him while switching formats.

The 29-year-old left-armer, who swung the ball prodigiously to claim five for 21 and helped New Zealand to a win in the fourth match, has moved up seven places to grab third position. The T20I series is an opportunity for Dinesh Karthik, who has done well as a finisher but is still not a sure starter in the eleven and Laxman is of the opinion that Karthik should bat at the No. 3 spot.

Rayudu's performance will give him and the team confidence. Apart from Pant, India are also likely to play both Dhoni and Karthik. If he succeeds in impressing the selectors and the team management again, he might get a last moment ticket for the flight to England for the 2019 World Cup. There aren't too many worldwide matches left before the World Cup in June; apart from the three T20Is now, India have only two more T20Is and five ODIs against Australia at home.

Neesham was hit on the pads while trying to sweep Kedar Jadhav's delivery. The manner in which the Kiwi batsmen face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal would effectively decide the fate of the series.
