India and New Zealand will clash in the first-ever T20I match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur tomorrow evening. The game will kick off a 3-match T20I series between the two nations.

The Blackcaps have caused considerable hurt to Indian cricket team fans in the last three years. In 2019, New Zealand eliminated India from the Cricket World Cup by defeating them in the semifinals. It proved to be MS Dhoni's last game in Indian colors.

And earlier this year, the Kiwis beat India in the inaugural World Test Championship final, followed by a Super 12 victory in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, which cost India a place in the semifinals.

India will be keen to avenge those big defeats with a thumping win at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium tomorrow evening. The match will start at 7:00 PM IST, and before the game gets underway, here are some important stats you need to know from previous T20s played at this venue.
