Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium will host the final match of the India vs. New Zealand T20I series on Wednesday, February 1, evening. Both nations have won a game each in the three-match series so far, and the winner of the Ahmedabad T20I will take home the trophy.

Fans can expect high-scoring matches in the T20I format, but the previous T20 between India and New Zealand was a low-scoring thriller. Not a single six was hit by the two teams at the Bharat Ratna Shree Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium as India needed 19.4 overs to chase a 100-run target.

A better surface will likely be on offer in Ahmedabad. Before the match begins, here are some vital stats and numbers you need to know from previous T20Is hosted by the world's largest cricket stadium.
