NZ vs IND: New Zealand will lock horns against India in the 3rd ODI of the India tour of New Zealand, 2022 on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at McLean Park, Napier.
The Hardik Pandya-led India thumped New Zealand by 65 runs in the second T20I to take an unbeaten 1-0 lead in the series after their series opener was called off due to the rain.
Talking about the second T20I, Suryakumar Yadav played a blistering century knock of unbeaten 111 runs off 51 balls to help India post a mammoth total of 191 runs for the loss of six wickets.
In reply, Deepak Hooda picked a four-wicket haul as New Zealand bundled out 126 runs in 18.5 Overs, losing the match by 65 runs. Kane Williamson top-scored with 61 runs off 52 balls.
Heading into the third T20I, New Zealand has suffered a big blow as captain Kane Williamson will not be available for the contest with Mark Chapman being announced as his replacement.
Tim Southee, who picked a hat-trick in the last match against India will lead the Black Caps in the third and final T20I in Napier. Team India, meanwhile, is expected to go with the same squad.
