Both the matches in this India-NZ series have been one-sided so far, but the decider at Thiruvananthapuram is sure to be a mouth-watering clash.

Can India replicate it's first ever T20I win against New Zealand and clinch the series tomorrow? In order to do so, it would need to make some changes to its playing XI and strategy.

#5 Kuldeep in, Siraj out

India should play an extra wrist spinner and replace Mohammed Siraj with Kuldeep Yadav. Considering that NZ struggles against spinners, this will help India launch a more potent attack.

Kuldeep Yadav has taken 5 wickets in 4 T20I at economy of 7.25
Kuldeep Yadav has taken five wickets in four T20I matches, at an economy of 7.25

Siraj did not have a very impressive debut, ending with figures of 4-0-53-1.

With the series on the line, Kuldeep might be a better wicket-taking option - he has several variations up his sleeve that can rattle the NZ batsmen.
