India and New Zealand are all set to take on each other in the three-match T20I series starting from November 17. The series will take place in Jaipur, Ranchi and Kolkata respectively.
With the new leadership group in place, Team India is all set to create a different template in the shortest format of the game after heavy defeats in the T20 World Cup 2021.
With Virat Kohli rested, there will be a few players who will get a chance at the No. 3 position. A few IPL stars will also get a chance to prove their worth in this three-match series.
Meanwhile, New Zealand will enter this series after a heartbreaking loss to Australia in the T20 World Cup 2021 final. The Black Caps will be without their full-time skipper Kane Williamson, who has opted to rest to focus on the Test series. Pacer Kyle Jamieson has also pulled out of the series.
