After two entertaining games, India and New Zealand will lock horns in the series decider at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. After losing the first game, the Men in Blue won the second fixture in excruciating fashion. A brilliant bowling display ensured that the Kiwis were restricted to the score of 99 after 20 overs. But the Indian batters immensely struggled to chase down the total and sealed the game in the last over of the innings.
India, despite the win in Lucknow, is yet to answer many questions which were pivotal in their loss on the opening game of the T20I series. The Indian batters have failed to find any sort of form over the first two games and would need to put on a big performance to redeem their disappointing performances. Whereas, the bowlers rectified their shortcomings and fully utilised the conditions to dismantle Kiwi batters. Hardik Pandya would want to replicate this effort in the final T20I.
On the other hand, New Zealand had a bad day where their batting collapsed like a pack of cards against the Indian spin attack. But their bowlers kept the team in catching distance with India as they chased down a low score. Like the Indian spinners, Mitchell Santer and his tweakers have performed in this series and created a lot of problems for the opposition batters.
