In the third and final T20I, which was postponed on Tuesday at McClean Park owing to rain, New Zealand skipper Tim Southee won the toss and decided to bat first against India.
Kane Williamson, the team’s normal captain, was replaced in the starting lineup by Mark Chapman because he had to attend a scheduled medical visit.
“We’ll batting. It appears to be a pitch on which we may score runs. Although we have little control over the weather, this field has historically provided favourable batting conditions. Although we weren’t the best bowlers the other night, SKY deserves praise. Mark Chapman enters the room without delay. At the toss, Southee observed, “You look back at spots where we can grow as a team.
Contrarily, the Hardik Pandya-led India, who are ahead 1-0 in the three-match series, made one adjustment by substituting Harshal Patel for Washington Sundar.
“We got what we wanted since we already wanted to bowl first. I believe the pitch will stay the same throughout the 40 overs, although because of the grass, our pacers may see some lateral movement. We definitely consider the dimensions, but our bowling lineup does have the necessary skill set. We must not dwell on the circumstances; as one change, Harshal replaces Washington Sundar,” remarked Hardik.
