Cricket continuously astounds even the most fanatic of followers and that is exactly what has happened in this T20 series between New Zealand and India. We witnessed a second consecutive meltdown from the hosts in the final over, another Super Over, and another heartbreaking loss for New Zealand.
India now leads the series 4-0 and a clean sweep is within grasp. Can New Zealand find a way to fight back and prevent this embarrassing scoreline from materializing?
India looks likely to continue with its experimentation and a couple more could be in store for the final T20. New Zealand made a few changes in the previous match as well but it does not have the luxury of trying anything drastic.
New Zealand vs India 5th T20 is going to be played at the Bay Oval Stadium, Mount Maunganui on the 2nd of February 2020.
This T20 series has been a real wake up call for New Zealand cricket. Not only has it lost the series convincingly but fans would be worried about the formats to follow. The home side must try and win this last match to try and take some momentum into the ODI series.
Kane Williamson did not play the previous match because of a shoulder niggle and is unlikely to be risked for the next match either. That means New Zealand is going to be without it’s best batsman and regular skipper.
Tim Siefert and Colin Munro batted quite well but were unable to put the finishing touches on the chase.
We don’t see too many changes in the New Zealand batting lineup for this last match and think the same players will be picked. Questions are being raised about Ross Taylor’s place in the team and New Zealand must question whether they want to persist with him or invest in a younger player.
Scott Kuggeleijn has added some variation to the bowling attack with his slower deliveries and the ability to get some disconcerting bounce. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner have also been quite good in the series without being at their best.
Tim Southee has now been at the receiving end of Super Overs multiple times and we just don’t see him being an effective T20 bowler at all.
New Zealand may be up against a relatively weaker India side but it will still have to play out of its skin to win.
Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Ross Taylor, Tom Bruce, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, TG Southee, IS Sodhi, Hamish Bennett.
India made three changes to its side for the fourth T20 and so would have been very proud to win without some of its best players.
We are almost certain that Kuldeep Yadav and Rishab Pant will get a chance in this match as well. That means that Yuzvendra Chahal is going to sit out and possibly Lokesh Rahul will get rested.
Virat Kohli has been short of runs in this series and could end up opening the inning alongside Sanju Samson followed by Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, Manish Pandey, and Shivam Dube.
This would still give India a very strong batting lineup and the capability to score big runs. The chances of a batting failure will also be magnified as Sanju Samson is new on the scene, Shreyas Iyer has lost a bit of form, Shivam Dube has looked unfit for international cricket, and Rishab Pant is making a comeback.
Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, and Navdeep Saini bowled very well at different stages of the game to help India win the match. Kuldeep Yadav will pose a different challenge to the New Zealand batsmen and not detract much from the bowling attack.
Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube both offer additional bowling options to India as well.
India is blessed with a strong bench and so any eleven players it puts on the park are going to be hard to stop.
Lokesh Rahul, SV Samson, Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, SN Thakur, NA Saini, YS Chahal, JJ Bumrah.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. That has been the favored strategy by captains this entire series and is unlikely to change.

A clear and sunny day has been forecast on match day at Mount Maunganui. There is next to no chance of rain and so we should get one more chance to enjoy these two sides faces in a T20 contest this summer.
The pitch at the Bay Oval is going to be excellent for batting. The surface has a decent amount of carry in it and the ball flies off the bat.
Another match where 180-190 can be seen as a par score is expected.
Dream11 tips and Dream11 prediction for New Zealand vs India 5th T20 2020
India’s batting suffered a major top-order collapse but still managed to put together enough runs to get to a competitive total. We could have a situation where two out of India’s big 3 are not playing this match but the bench is still strong enough to challenge the Kiwis.
Momentum, freedom to play their natural game, and a lot of T20 experience give India the edge once again. We think a 5-0 scoreline is on the cards.
