India complied their first-ever T20I series win on the New Zealand soil by taking a 3-0 winning lead following a thrilling win in the Super over on Wednesday. The series will now move to Wellington as the two sides clash off at the Westpac Stadium. With the series result already been decided, both the teams might look to make few experiments keeping the T20 World Cup in mind. However, the priority of the Kiwis will be winning the last two matches and save themselves from losing the series by a bigger margin.
