- Hit for India
- India won the series earlier
- New Zealand seeks relief
India made two changes to its roster. Opener KL Rahul and spinner R Ashwin were rested. Rahul was replaced by the opener Ishan Kishan and Ashwin was replaced by Yusvendra Chahal. Ashwin, who has played limited overs cricket for four years, has been consistent. Vice-captain KL Rahul has scored in four of the last five games for half a century.
New Zealand will have to do without captain Tim Southee. The new captain is Mitchell Santner. New Zealand’s goal is a consolation win in the third T20.
