India play New Zealand in a three-match T20I series next month and this is the first T20I series between these two countries since 2017. That series was hosted by India and they won the series 2-1.

India and New Zealand have faced each other eight times in T20Is and unlike the ODIs, it is the Kiwis who lead the Indians 6-2. An interesting point to note is that in the first five T20I matches played between these two countries, it was New Zealand, who emerged as the winners.

The last time these two teams met for a T20I series in New Zealand was back in 2009. It was a two-match series which the Kiwis won 2-0.
