India cricket team would be eyeing their first bilateral T20 International series win in New Zealand, when the teams play each other at Seddon Park, Hamilton on Wednesday.

India has defeated New Zealand cricket team in the first two T20s in Auckland to go 2-0 up in the five-match series. A third successive win at Seddon Park will give them their first ever T20 series' win on New Zealand soil, a feat they were unable to achieve on two occasions previously. India lost 0-2 under MS Dhoni back in 2008-09, and last year, they went down 1-2.



Team India will be looking to field the same playing 11 from second T20 while New Zealand would look to make some changes in their bowling department bringing in Scott Kuggeleijn in place of Blair Tickner.

Weather report


The Auckland weather is expected to play a spoilsport as there are chances of scattered showers during the game.


Pitch report


The Seddon Park wicket is expected to have some bounce which can help the stroke players to hit on the up. The last time when New Zealand hosted India last year, over 400 runs were scored. The short boundaries would force the toss winning captain to field first.
