After facing humiliating defeat in the 1st T20, the Men in Blue bounced back with a bang. The Indian side beat Kiwis in the 2nd T20 to level 3-match T20 series 1-1. Coming to 3rd T20, it will be do-or-die situation for both the sides. Team India will be aiming to continue their 10-series T20 winning streak, while Kiwis will be looking to exact revenge for the ODI defeat.
Captains of both sides will play a crucial part. Rohit Sharma hit 50 in the last game and became top run-scorer in T20s, while Kiwi captain Kane Williamson has failed to impress in the ODIs and T20s as well. Williamson hasn’t scored many runs. However, his captaincy and positive attitude have impressed one and all. Here are the probable dream 11 and playing XI predictions for India and New Zealand:
Probable playing XI for India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni(WK), Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Khaleel Ahmed.
