India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I Match Prediction: Pitch Report, Dream 11 Team

The India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on February 01. The 3-match T20I series between New Zealand and India is currently tied at 1-1 after India defeated New Zealand by 6 wickets in the 2nd T20I in Lucknow. The winner of the 3rd India vs New Zealand T20 match will not only take the series but also consolidate their positions in the ICC Men’s T20 rankings table.

It is still unclear whether the 3rd T20 match between India and New Zealand will be played on a red or black pitch. Across different types of pitches at the Narendra Modi stadium, the average 1st innings score in T20s is 152. The venue is favorable for scoring runs and the final T20I match is expected to be the same. 

No rain forecast has been made by the local meteorological department for the match day. In total, 9 T20Is have been played at this venue and teams batting first have won on 5 occasions. Chasing teams have taken the honors on 4 occasions. Expect the captain winning the toss to bat first given the history of the venue and the pressure of a series decider. 

India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I: Expected Playing 11s

The 2nd T20I match in Lucknow was a low-scoring thriller as spinners ruled throughout the game. Out of the 40 overs, 30 were bowled by spinners. India is expected to field the same playing XI. It means an extended run for Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan and Rahul Tripathi at the top. If the match is played on a black-soil pitch, India might include Umran Malik instead of Arshdeep Singh. 

India: Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh/Umran Malik

Even after failing to cross the 100-run mark in the 2nd T20I, New Zealand will be mighty pleased with their efforts of dragging the Indian chase to the penultimate bowl of the match. Expect Santner to go with the same XI in the final T20I match of the series. 

New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Mark Chapman, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Jacob Duffy, Blair Tickner
