India vs New Zealand T20: After clinching the One Day International series, Team India faces New Zealand again the three-match T20 series which kick-starts from tonight. The first T20 International match between India and New Zealand will begin at 7:00 PM IST on 1st November, Wednesday.
This is going to be the final international match for Ashish Nehra in his Cricket career, hopefully, he will be in the playing 11 today as he didn’t pick for any match during the T20 series against Australia. Nehra is not a big branded cricketer like MS Dhoni or Virat, but he is one of the most dedicated cricketers in their career. He never failed to give his 100% in play and he inspired many other bowlers to not lose stamina and bowl with full efforts till the end.
Unfortunately team New Zealand never lose a T20 match against India so far. Hopefully, we can expect team India to start their winning account today and give a great farewell match to Ashish Nehra. New Zealand is currently ranking in the first position in the ICC T20 ranking and India standing in the fifth position as of 1st November 2017. The mission is, India needs to clinch the series and aim to dominate the T20 International matches as well. Currently, India is ranking in the first position in the Test ranking and second position in the One Day ranking.
