But before the two teams go head to head for the game, here look at the picture painted by numbers and statistics and who they depict could be the winner.
India has a better chance to win the toss as they have won more tosses in their previous three T20I games in comparison to New Zealand.
Entering this game, India still remains the favourites to win this fixture and clinch the series 2-1 in Ahmedabad. Entering this team some may say New Zealand is a more in-form team but choosing against the Men in Blue in a decider wouldn’t be wise.
A part of the top three batters, India has been phenomenal so far. The bowling unit aptly rectified their mistake and restricted the Kiwis to 99. The Indian lower order has also looked in good touch with Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar batting well, giving India the upper hand.
Predicted powerplay score and Average first innings total:
The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has always been a place where both batters and bowlers benefitted. The average 1st innings score is 174 in domestic T20 games. Whereas the predicted powerplay score is expected to be between 42-50.
