IND vs NZ 2022, 3rd t20 Match Live Updates: New Zealand looked promising to score 180 points. But Siraj and Arshdeep had different plans and engineered one of the most unforeseen collapses in T20Is. New Zealand lost their last eight wickets for 30 runs. Indian bowlers have turned the game upside down. It’s up to Indian batters to catch the home side by chasing an average score of 161 runs.
The coin toss and start of play were delayed by 30 minutes due to passing rain and more rain is forecast. India leads the three-game series 1-0 after winning the second game on Sunday by 65 runs. Suryakumar Yadav showed why he is the best Twenty20 batsman in the world with 111 innings unbeaten including a 49-ball century
Meanwhile, New Zealand will miss their captain Kane Williamson who had pre-arranged a medical appointment and will sit it out. The Kiwis will be determined to get at least something out of this series as they look to enter the ODI series with a fresh and positive attitude.
