Team India and New Zealand will play the final match of three T20 series in Hamilton on Sunday. After losing the first match by 80 runs, India won the match by 7 wickets in the second match. The team will want to capture the series by winning the third T20 at all times. However, the hosts will also try their best to make the series. This is the reason why cricket lovers will have eyes on the final match.
New Zealand is on the verge of winning the T20 series after losing the five-match one-day series 4-1. At the same time, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team is on the threshold of making history. If the Indian team wins the third T20 match, it will win its first T20 series on New Zealand ‘s regime. The name of the series will remain, it will depend on the performance of both the teams in the match. But these five players from both the teams are the ones who have the ability to turn the dice on their own with a decisive match.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been the Man of the Series in ODIs against Australia, has proved his worth in New Zealand too. He has scored 59 runs in both T20 matches so far. He is at the top of the list of most run batsmen in the current series from India. Even in the third match, cricket fans are once again expecting the best of them.
Tim Southee, who was out in the ODI series against India, is seen in the rhythm after returning to the team in the Twenty20 series. They have shown the way to pavilion of three players by taking 51 runs in two T20 matches. To win the series, the host team will hope to bowl well with their 30-year-old bowler.
This series is a game changer for India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. Pant, who has been out of the team in the one-day series against Australia and New Zealand, has the perfect chance to prove himself by having a fantastic batting in the T20 series. Pant, who scored just four runs in the first T20 match, played a magnificent inning of 40 not out in the second match. He returned to winning the team after tapping Pant Chowk to bat at number three. He would like to keep his rhythm in the third match too.
New Zealand opener Colin Munro made a good start in both T20 matches. However, he failed to convert his opening start into a big inning and lost his wicket by playing the wrong shot. He scored 44 runs in two games. Although Munro did not bat on the tick, ignoring him in the third T20 would be a big mistake. They are still counted among the most dangerous players of the small format of cricket.
All-rounder Kunal Pandya played an important role in India’s victory by bowling in the second T20 match. They took three wickets in this match for India or take them. Krupal was awarded the match of the match award for his outstanding bowling. In the third match too, a spectacular display from Krupal will be expected so that in New Zealand, the Indian team can be successful in the history composition.
