With the new coach – Rahul Dravid and new T20I captain – Rohit Sharma, Team India are all ready to tackle New Zealand in the first T20I of the three-match series at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. India could not qualify for the final four at the recently concluded T20 World Cup where New Zealand finished as the runners-up after an eight-wicket defeat against Australia in the final. The marquee tent tournament was Virat Kohli’s last as T20I captain and also the last assignment for former head coach Ravi Shastri. India will enter the series in the absence of very big names such as former T20I captain Virat Kohli, the versatile players Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja, and the pacemakers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami who rested for the T20I series with reference to a hectic international calendar ahead. Although there are few fresh faces in India’s T20I series like Venkatesh Iyer, Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan who earned their first India call after their excellent performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. On the other hand is New Zealand without their Kane Williamson, regular captain, who will join the Test team immediately after the closing of the T20Is. In Williamson’s absence, Tim Southee was named in charge of the first T20I. (LIVE SCORE CARD)
