NZ wicketkeeper Bezuidenhout ruled out of T20I series, Peterson called up

New Zealand will look towards Kane Williamson to get them back on track after their ODI drubbing, but the Kiwi skipper's recent form leaves plenty to be desired.

Indian women's team ODI captain Mithali Raj dropped down a place to fifth losing her spot to Amy Satterthwaite, the New Zealand captain who flew up 10 places to No.4. A player who can bat and bowl really well, Pandya's contribution in a match doesn't just restrict to one phase of play. MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik are the other two keeper batsmen in the side. Now, it's time to end it with a three-match Twenty20 global series against New Zealand beginning with the first game on Wednesday in Wellington. It was during the 2016 World T20 match played at Nagpur.

Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues formed a successful opening partnership in the ODI series and India are expected to continue with the same pair in T20Is. India are likely to include Rishabh Pant and it will be interesting to see which player makes it into the team. There aren't too many global matches left before the World Cup in June; apart from the three T20Is now, India have only two more T20Is and five ODIs against Australia at home.


"Rayudu was the last one to enter the race and it needed only a handful of good knocks to put him at the top of the queue".

Virat Kohli enjoyed a successful season both as a batsman and captain before he was rested for the last three ODIs and the T20I series against New Zealand. During the 37th over of the innings bowled by Kedar Jadhav, Neesham went for the sweep but ended up missing the ball completely.

If India manage to resist their temptation of playing a left-arm pacer, Kaul should take the new ball alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar at Wellington. Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the attack but in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, India will want the inexperienced Siddarth Kaul and Khaleel Ahmed to step up.
