Where to catch the live stream of India vs New Zealand 1st T20I match? India also have the option of playing Krunal Pandya in his place at No. 6.

New Zealand will be without some key players in this series. Looks like a good pitch, as we saw in the game earlier so we are looking to set a target. The Black Caps' hopes will be tied with skipper Kane Williamson who has both failed to impress with the bat and lead his team in crucial moments in the ongoing series against Team India.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was not part of the ODIs, returns hungrier and has a big opportunity to stake a claim for a World Cup spot in the upcoming three T20s.

The series is also an opportunity for Dinesh Karthik, who has done well as a finisher but is still not a sure starter in the eleven.

Jemimah Rodrigues walked in at number three and saw the second over out, after which the pair of Rodrigues and Mandhana stepped things up.

Why it matters: An unpredictable magnetic north is making it hard for high accuracy navigation systems to remain fully functional. And while the model's primary user is the military, it has found its way into Google and Apple's civilian mapping systems.

Amelia Kerr and Sophie Devine were brought into the attack by captain Satterthwaite to change things up, but Mandhana and Rodrigues tackled them well, picking up at least one boundary every over till the tenth over and rotating strike regularly. New Zealand had placed a deep cover to counter Mandhana's lofted drives.

In the bowling lineup, Aakash feels selectors should name Khaleel Ahmed as the reserve seamer owing to his left-handedness, while he left out Ravindra Jadeja from the final 15 saying that it's not viable to pick him at the cost of either an extra batsman or a fast bowler.

The visitors are with a great momentum while the hosts New Zealand would love to take an act of revenge.

India's superb position, before they lost their way, was thanks to Smriti Mandhana going berserk. In the series in New Zealand, she scored her fourth ODI century and an unbeaten 90 in the first two matches respectively to grab top spot in the ICC ODI Rankings for Women's batters. It will be interesting to see what rookie all-rounder Daryl Mitchell and pacer Blair Tickner do in their debut series.
