NZ vs IND Match Details

Match: New Zealand vs India, 3rd T20I | India tour of New Zealand

Date: Tuesday, 22 Nov 2022 

Time: 12:00 (GMT+5.5) / 12.30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: McLean Park, Napier 

NZ vs IND Preview

  • Going to Napier, India has an advantage thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s outstanding recent performance.
  • The strike rate issues Kane Williamson is having could hurt New Zealand’s innings.
  • Glenn Phillips will be crucial to a comeback from New Zealand on a high-scoring field.


The last match in the three-match IT20 series between New Zealand and India will take place Tuesday night at McLean Park in Napier. India won easily on Sunday at the Bay Oval to take a 1-0 series lead after Wellington’s first game was called off due to bad weather. The start time of this daytime game is 19:30 local time. 

India outplayed New Zealand on Sunday, and they have been playing poorly recently in the IT20s. Despite having the home advantage, they will need to improve their game to win this match.

India still has exceptional depth on this tour despite missing some of their biggest-name players. They have match-winners in every position, and their recent record against New Zealand has been very strong. 

NZ vs IND Weather Report

On the day of the game, Napier is forecast to have sporadic thunderstorms and a high of 25 degrees Celsius.

NZ vs IND Match Toss Prediction

The toss will not be as important as it was in the previous game. This field has only hosted five T20I games. 3 of those had outcomes that favored the side batting second. Teams batting first have prevailed in 11 of the 16 domestic T20 matches.

NZ vs IND Pitch Report

The pitch is favorable for batting and tends to get slower as the game goes on.

New Zealand Team News & Probable Playing XIs

It has been unexpected that all-rounder Michael Bracewell was not chosen for any of the T20 World Cup games or for the match in Tauranga on Sunday after impressing during the Tri-Nation Series. In place of Finn Allen at the top of the order, Martin Guptill will likely rejoin the team.

New Zealand’s Probable XI

Kane Williamson (c), Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, Martin Guptill, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Tim Southee, Mitch Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Adam Milne 

It would be unexpected to see India make any adjustments before this series-deciding game after the 65-run victory on Sunday and the absence of any player-reported ailments. Washington Sundar, who had a golden duck at the plate and gave up 17 runs in his first over bowling, is anticipated to be given another chance.

India is the favourite to win this match.


Suryakumar Yadav’s outstanding performance on Sunday dominated the game and the post-game interviews, and he has recently made a lot of difference for India. After struggling at the Bay Oval, New Zealand will be eager to bounce back in this game, but we predict that the Indian bowling attack will be too strong for their batters. We anticipate India to take the series with two straight victories.
