The venue where the Kiwis skittled the Men In Blue for a paltry 93, awaits a thrilling encounter with all to play for. India and New Zealand head into this crunch fixture with the series levelled one each.
The expectations heading into the T20 series were high despite India’s lamenting record against New Zealand in this format. Having thwarted the opposition 4-1 in the ODI’s, the visitors made a strong case in their pursuit of the World Cup.
The two-time World Cup winners head back to where they faltered in the land of the Blackcaps, Hamilton’s iconic Seddon Park. After having found their rhythm with a clinical victory in the previous fixture despite some unorthodox decisions and tactics, India will look to leave the shores with victories across all formats since their arrival last year.
Meanwhile, New Zealand still awaits contributions across all departments from their players. A Kiwi side with full potential could possibly tarnish the visitors’ hopes for a series win.
