IND Vs NZ 1st T20 Update

IND Vs NZ 1st T20 Update: When Team India plays New Zealand in the first of three T20 Internationals on Friday, they’ll be hoping to move over the disappointment of their humiliating T20 World Cup exit.

The Men in Blue suffered yet another loss in an ICC competition. As they were defeated by eventual champions England by 10 wickets in the second semi-final in Adelaide. They exited the T20 World Cup with a whimper. The Indian team had been without a significant victory since the 2013 Champions Trophy, and the loss made it longer until they would finally lift an ICC trophy.

After winning their group and defending what would ultimately be a weak total against Pakistan, New Zealand, like India, was knocked from the T20 World Cup in the semi-finals. Contrary to the Indians, the Black Caps did succeed in picking up a few wickets during Babar Azam and the team’s successful run chase.

The nation wants change now, but when will it happen? With the 2024 T20 World Cup in mind. The three-match T20I series against New Zealand is the ideal place for Indian cricket to reevaluate its approach to the game’s shortest format.

India should think about using Rishabh Pant as their opener, thus it will be intriguing to see if they do.
