India vs New Zealand on January 27


India will clash against New Zealand in the first T20I match at JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on January 27. India won all three ODIs against New Zealand with a dominant all-round performance and are clear favorites to win the upcoming fixture as well. New Zealand hosted Indian team in the three-match T20I series in November last year. India won the series by 0-1 as the third game resulted in a tie while chasing 76 runs in nine-over game. Indian team has rested Virat Kohli and Captain Rohit Sharma while KL Rahul and Axar Patel are also missing this series. Hardik Pandya is named captain while Prithvi Shaw returns to International Cricket. New Zealand are also without thie star skipper Kane Williamson and pacers Tim Southee and Trent Boult. Mitchell Santner is leading the team while Ben Lister is included in the team for the first time.

Best economical pick – The in-form batting all-rounder Glenn Philips has been Kiwi's best player in the shortest format lately and ranks seventh in the current ICC T20I batter's chart. He smashed 54 off 33 against India during the last T20I encounter.

Top captains & vice captains – Suryakumar Yadav is currently among the most consistent batters in the format. His form in the 20-over games has been fantastic, and that is what earned him the No. 1 spot in the ICC rankings as well. Suryakumar, who is currently in red-hot form, will be the one to watch out for in the upcoming matchup against the Kiwis. The young Indian batter Shubman Gill scored 360 runs from three ODIs against New Zealand, including a double ton in the first game. He is likely to open innings in T20Is and will be looking forward to carrying the momentum.

Smart pick – With the pitch being spin-friendly, Kuldeep Yadav will be the one to look out for. He has been in good form ever since he returned to the Indian side, and will be expected to carry the same momentum in the forthcoming game.

Cautious Pick – The Kiwi young opener Finn Allen has struggled to convert good starts to big knocks lately and was bowled out on ducks in the last two ODIs against India.

My XI – Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Shubman Gill (Vice-Captain), Michael Bracewell, Kuldeep Yadav, Devon Conway, Glenn Philips, Umran Malik, Lockie Fergusen, Hardik Pandya, Darel Mitchell, Ishan Kishan
