India v New Zealand, Live: Preview for 3rd IND vs NZ T20I
Date: 21 November 2021
Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
India have already clinched the series after winning the first two games convincingly. The Rohit Sharma-led team have kept their disappointment of missing out of the semis of the T20 World Cup aside, winning five T20Is in a row, and are firm favourites to make it six in six.
The hosts could make a string of changes to their XI for the upcoming game, with Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad expected to come into the side with either or both the first-choice openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma making way. Avesh Khan could replace Bhuvneshwar Kumar as well, and there is a strong chance that Yuzvendra Chahal makes a comeback too after being omitted from the World Cup squad.
Mohammad Siraj injured his left hand in the first T20I and did not feature last time around. There is no update on his fitness.
New Zealand, on the other hand, made as many as three changes to their side for the second game. They got in Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi, and James Neesham for Lockie Ferguson, Rachin Ravindra, and Todd Astle. Milne proved to be expensive in the last game and could be replaced by Ferguson for this encounter.
