New Zealand are on the cusp of a series win in India – a not so regular occurrence for touring teams in the recent past. India, on the other hand, huffed and puffed to a win in the second match and would now want to be far-more assertive with the bat. The series is on the line and the teams are at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
For India, the top order has been a concern. Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have struggled to get off the blocks while Rahul Tripathi has looked rushed. Prithvi Shaw could get the nod to walk into the eleven while India could be tempted to bring back Umran Malik in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.

India vs New Zealand Ahmedabad Weather and Pitch Report
Lucknow was in all the wrong reasons for what Hardik Pandya called a ‘shocking’ track. Ahmedabad might not be that extreme and the surface is expected to be a good batting track. Spinners will still get assistance from the track. There will be clear skies.
India vs New Zealand Match Prediction
New Zealand have been resilient under Mitchell Santner in this T20I series and they will be keen to end this trip with a series win. India need to get its act together as far as their batting is concerned. However, considering India’s superb record in bilateral series in the recent past, they could win this match and seal the series.
