In the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India will try to win their first international T20 series in New Zealand when they take the field in the third and final T20I in Hamilton on Sunday. The last three months have become a memorable phase for the Indian cricket team, which won its first series of Tests and ODI bilaterally in Australia, followed by the series’ biggest victory in New Zealand. A first victory of the T20I series in New Zealand will be the icing on the cake for the ‘Men in blue’, which have far exceeded expectations during their three-month stay in this part of the world. With the series blocked at 1-1, there is plenty to play in the decider, which promises to be a cookie from a “Super Sunday” contest with a spicy Seddon Park field in sight. India will do well to remember the nightmare they endured during the fourth ODI in this place where they were defeated by 92 after some quality bowling of Trent Boult. However, Sunday will be a different day and there can be no greater motivation than winning another series in challenging conditions abroad.
