India won one of the most exciting T20 matches it has ever played as it wrapped up the T20 series 3-0. There was a lot of back and forth in the match with both teams putting in some stunning performances. Fine margins made all the difference in the end, though, as India came out tops in the Super Over.
Virat Kohli said after the match that he would like to give some of the players on the bench a go and so India could make some changes for the third T20. New Zealand will be heartbroken with the result but can take solace from the fact that it has India on the ropes at multiple occasions during the match.
A couple of wins could help shift the momentum for New Zealand as a lot of cricket is still left in the series after the T20 series concludes.
New Zealand vs India 4th T20 is going to be played at the Westpac Stadium, Wellington on the 31st of January 2020.
It has started to become a bit of theme with this New Zealand side but tied matches and Super Overs just don’t seem to be its thing. New Zealand had India on the mat and seemingly could not lose after needing just two runs from four deliveries. Keep in mind that Kane Williamson was playing his best-ever T20 inning and Ross Taylor had just smashed a six off Mohammad Shami’s first delivery.
Everything crumbled after that as New Zealand ended up tying the match and then failing to defend 18 runs in the Super Over.
Where does New Zealand go from here?
One of the changes that New Zealand made for this match was the inclusion of Scott Kuggeleijn in place of Blair Tickner and it seemed to have worked. He bowled just two overs for ten runs and could maybe have been given a go at the end.
New Zealand must think about replacing Colin de Grandhomme for the next match who has been having a horror series. He has eight runs from three matches and has been eating up deliveries at the crease as well.
Daryl Mitchell is a like for like replacement and could get a chance.
The rest of the side should remain the same. Kane Williamson is in excellent touch and scored a brilliant 95 in the previous match. He also showed that Jasprit Bumrah can be taken down by some careful movement at the crease. Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor are all hitting the ball nicely as well but a lack of runs from the other batsmen is hurting New Zealand.
The spinners have been fantastic for New Zealand in the entire series. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner have been able to keep the Indians in check and will be New Zealand’s biggest weapons again. Westpac Stadium can be quite tough on the slower bowlers, though, and so New Zealand’s struggles with the ball could continue for some time yet.
Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tom Bruce, Ross Taylor, Tim Seifert, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, TG Southee, IS Sodhi, Hamish Bennett, Daryl Mitchell.
The series is in the bag for India and it now has the opportunity to test out its bench. Make no mistake, though, that is not going to make India a weaker side. Almost all of the players on the bench are those that have done well in international cricket recently and will hit the ground running.
We think it is fair to assume that Navdeep Saini is going to come into the side for Shardul Thakur for this next match which is going to be an upgrade to the death bowing skills of India. Washington Sundar also got called out in the post-match conference by Kohli and so he could get a chance in the playing eleven as well.
India’s batting approach in the previous match made it clear that it wants to be more attacking while batting first. Sanju Samson and Rishab Pant could get a game in the remaining two matches. Maybe resting Lokesh Rahul could allow Sanju Samson to come in an open the batting as well.
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer don’t seem likely to miss out for the next match at least which ensures that India is going to have a very strong batting lineup. The Westpac Stadium has some strange angles which can be taken advantage of and so far the Indian batsmen have shown themselves to be very aware of such things.
Mohammad Shami bowled an absolute gem of a last over but India would know its pace attack has not been hitting the correct lengths as consistently as expected. Jasprit Bumrah was uncharacteristically expensive and Mohammad Shami was going the distance before his last over as well.
The bowlers will go back and reassess their plans against Kane Williamson before the next match for sure.
SV Samson, Lokesh Rahul, V Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, SN Thakur, YS Chahal, JJ Bumrah, NA Saini.

Weather is quite often an issue at Wellington but the forecast for this match promises an ideal day for cricket. There is next to no chance of rain predicted and we should have another full day of cricket. The pitch is a drop-in and is expected to be quite flat. The bowlers are not going to have much to work with although sometimes the spinners can get a bit of help when the drop-in pitch is a bit dry.
The pitch tends to get a bit slower as the match progresses. A total of about 180 is expected to be par for the venue.
Dream11 tips and Dream11 prediction for New Zealand vs India 4th T20 2020. Now that India has wrapped up the series, we expect some changes and this is why we have picked players like Sanju Samson and Navdeep Saini in the side. New Zealand could also make way for someone like Daryl Mitchell now that Colin de Grandhomme is going through a horror patch. The pitch at Wellington is expected to favor the batsmen and the angles of the ground make six-hitting pretty easy as well on occasions. We are backing Jasprit Bumrah to come back strongly from the beating he endured in the previous match.

India has been the superior side throughout this series even though a couple of the matches have been close. The problem is that India may now try to experiment and end up making too many changes. We would advise sticking with India but taking a careful look at the final playing eleven. If India looks to have benched its best players then hedge with New Zealand.
