It will be a series decider in the third and final match after the Indians won the second game by 6 wickets and leveled the series. The Kiwis could manage only 99 runs on the board, and the Indians also struggled in the run chase finishing the game with a ball to spare. As both sides go into the series decider, they will have to produce their best show to win the game.  

Indians have dominated the Kiwis in this format of the game. They have lost only twice against New Zealand in the last 10 games. The side plays at home, and they have good knowledge of the conditions. It will be interesting to see if the Kiwis can defeat the Indians in the latter's backyard and grab the series.

India Preview

Skipper Hardik Pandya will feel relieved after his side managed to level the series in the last game. There was a lot of criticism of the Indian bowlers in the first game. The side has gained momentum with the last win, and they will look to grab the series 2-1. Pandya will look for a good show from his bowlers, as it has been one of the concerns for the side in the last two years.  

Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan can play their strokes, and the side will look for a good start in this game. Suryakumar Yadav has been in exceptional form, and he will look to anchor the innings in the middle order with Rahul Tripathi and Washington Sundar. Hardik Pandya is one of the best hitters down the order, and the side will like to see him add quick runs with Deepak Hooda and Shivam Mavi.  

The bowlers used the conditions well in the last game, and the side will expect a good show from  Pandya and Washington Sundar with the new ball. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav bowled brilliantly in the last game, and they will need to repeat the magic. Arshdeep Singh, Mavi, and Deepak Hooda complete a well-balanced attack for the team.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Hardik Pandya (c), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh

New Zealand Preview

Mitchell Santner will feel upset with the performance of his batters in the last game. They didn't adjust to the conditions and fell 20 runs short of what would have been a good score on that surface. Having allowed the Indians to level the series, Santner and his boys need to pull out a good show in this game and grab the series.   

Finn Allen and Devon Conway have done well in the last 12 months, and the side will expect a strong show from them in this game. Glenn Phillips has to score quick runs in the middle order along with Mark Chapman and Daryl Mitchell. Michael Bracewell and Santner must do well down the order as the Indian bowling attack shall challenge them.  

The bowling attack is a bit weak for the side, and they will need tight spells with the new ball from Jacob Duffy and Michael Bracewell. Santner must lead from the front and bowl good spells along with Ish Sodhi. They will also need tight bowling from Lockie Ferguson and Mark Chapman in this series decider.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Mitchell Santner (c), Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Mark Chapman, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Ish Sodhi, Jacob Duffy, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner

Weather Conditions

There will be clear skies over Ahmedabad on February 01, and we expect to see a cool evening. The wicket is two-paced, and batsmen would have to be watchful. Spinners will enjoy the conditions in this game, as the dry surface would make the ball turn. The side batting first would need 180 runs or more on the board to feel safe.

Venue Details

Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, has a flat surface and a quick outfield. Batsmen who build their innings have been more successful here. Fast bowlers rely on their variations to earn rewards on this surface. It has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners as the ball can turn sharply and stop on the batsmen.

Toss: To Bowl

The wicket here is a challenging one to bat first. Most sides have won games here, chasing the score as the flat surface allows big scores to be chased easily. The side winning the toss in this game would be happy to invite the opponent to bat first. 

New Zealand has had a poor tour and has won only once in the five games they have played. The inexperienced bowling attack shall face a tough challenge against the strong batting line-up that the Indians have. India shall feel confident as the conditions favor them, and the side has a strong batting line-up. We expect a close game, but the Indians will start favorites.
