India vs New Zealand 2019: 1st T20I, Westpac Stadium, Wellington - Match Prediction

India tour of New Zealand 2019

India vs New Zealand live streaming: New Zealand will look to kickstart the T20I series against India with a win on Wednesday in order to compensate the humiliating 4-1 loss it suffered in the recently-concluded ODI series.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was not part of the ODIs, returns hungrier and has a big opportunity to stake a claim for a World Cup spot in the upcoming three T20s.

All-rounder Kedar Jadhav, who last played a T20I against Australia at Guwahati in 2017, should continue with his role from the ODI team.

They will hope to carry the same form into the shortest format, in which they are yet to have won a single game on New Zealand soil.

It is worth mentioning that India will be playing a T20I in New Zealand for the first time since 2009.

Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be considered as one of the best finishers in the world but he is equally a master when it comes to standing behind the stumps with gloves.

The 1st T20I between India and New Zealand will be played at Westpac Stadium, Wellington and it will start from 08:00 pm India time. The 37 year old, however made his presence felt in the field during the second innings with a brilliant piece of work behind the stumps to dismiss New Zealand all rounder Jimmy Neesham.

Shubnam Gill could make his T20I debut, while Rishabh Pant will come back into the side after missing the ODI series.
