Forgetting their poor performance in the ICC T20 World Cup, India would like to do well against New Zealand in the three-match T20 series from Wednesday at the Sawai Singh Stadium. Only eleven months are left for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. In the meantime, new captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid will have to build a great team. The recently concluded T20 World Cup did not go well for India.
He also has a good chance of making a place back in the team. T20 captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid said, “It has to be ensured that we have a team like the rest of the world’s developing team in the T20 format.” Sharma said, ‘I think it is very important to prepare the team. We just need to do it and we have some time to do that. There are of course some shortcomings, which we will try to address. It will be best for our team.

He also clarified on batting down the order during the World Cup. Also said that the Indian team decides who will bat where. We want to give new roles to the players, which they can fulfill, because in the end your performance is what matters. On the other hand, New Zealand have got just three days to prepare after losing the final against Australia. Kane Williamson has turned twelve from the T20I series to focus on the Test series. Tim Southee has been made the new captain of the team.
New Zealand have players who can turn a match on their own. He is adept at understanding pitches and conditions quickly and playing accordingly. However, to prove himself better against India, he will also have to fight a busy schedule. They would like to give chances to Kyle Jamieson, Mark Chapman and Todd Astle, who did not play a single match during the T20 World Cup. At the same time, Lockie Ferguson was injured after playing a match. Keeping the dew factor in mind, the Kiwi team is ready to give a tough fight to India.
