India vs New Zealand Highlights today. 3rd T20I (N), Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, Wednesday 1-2-2023, New Zealand tour of India 2023.

Toss: India will bat first.
“Just want to put some runs on the board and take it from there,” Hardik Pandya says. “When we played the IPL final here, the ball dipped much more in the second innings. The wicket looks fantastic, so we just wanted to bat first. All eyes of all the batsmen have lit up after playing on two difficult wickets. Winning and losing are part of the sport but if we can take some learnings from here, they will help us in the long run. Looks like the pitch will help fast bowlers more, so Umran comes in for Yuzi.”
“We wanted to bowl first anyway,” Mitchell Santner says. “It’s my first time here, doesn’t get better than this with the series on the line. The guys are really fired up and ready to go. Both surfaces in the last two games were pretty difficult. This looks like a good wicket, though the boundaries are big. We have made one change: Ben Lister comes in for Jacob Duffy.”
