India's numero uno spot in the group A standings will be on the line when the Harmanpreet Kaur-led outfit take the field against New Zealand Women in their third match of the first round. The Women in Blue have overcome the challenge from Australia and Bangladesh thus far in the Women's T20 World Cup 2020.

On the other hand, New Zealand have played just one match, where they downed the islanders Sri Lanka without breaking much sweat.

India vs New Zealand promises to be a clash between equals as both teams have not lost a single match.

The Indian fans will expect the pair of Poonam Yadav and Shikha Pandey to continue their magnificent form with the ball. The duo has scalped 12 wickets between themselves thus far, and the Kiwis will find it extremely tough to keep them out of the contest.

NZ skipper Sophie Devine will have to lead her side from the front to ensure that the team stays toe-to-toe- with India. Expect the Women in Blue to prevail in this contest, but not before Suzie Bates and Co give them a fight.
