India have already clinched the series victory by defeating the black caps in the first two matches at Jaipur and Ranchi respectively.
India won the toss in the 2nd T20I and again offered New Zealand to bat first. Unlike the previous game, the Kiwi batting line-up faltered with regular wickets. Though India are the favourite to win the third T20I also, New Zealand are expected to put up a good fight to avoid a whitewash and gain some confidence ahead of the Test series.
