Rain May Spoil Series Decider Between India And New Zealand

India ready to take New Zealand challenge in the series decider. The match will be played at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.This is the first ever T20 international match in Thiruvananthapuram.

But rain could spoil all the enthusiasm of Thiruvananthapuram people. There is a strong possibility that rain might affect the third and last T20 international in Thiruvananthapuram.

All the tickets for the match already sold out. It takes almost three years to come cricket in Kerala.

So because of the threat of the rain, it could be possible to have a cut in the overs. The series is level at 1-1. In the first match, Indian batsmen score big runs. Both Shikhar and Rohit score 80 runs each while Kohli made quick 26 runs. In the second game, it was New Zealand batsmen who score big runs. Colin Munro hits his 2nd T20 international century and New Zealand won the match easily.

In this series, the level of competition is very stiff. India won the ODI series by 2-1 but New Zealand play brilliantly and now in T2o international, we see some really good cricket from both teams. So it is hard to predict the winner in the third T20 as both teams are at equal level.

Squads For Both Teams:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Trent Boult, Tom Bruce, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee
