IND vs NZ live stream: T20 series preview

After brushing the tourists aside in a one-sided ODI series last week, India will be hoping for another dominant display as they take on New Zealand once more in this three-match T20i series.

Hardik Pandya leads the Men In Blue, who have opted to start with the in-form Shubman Gill as the opener ahead of Prithvi Shaw.

Gill has notched up three hundreds including a double ton in his last four innings and will be looking to inflict more pain on what looks like a weak New Zealand bowling lineup.

The Kiwis come into this series having won eight of their last ten T20Is, however, seven of those wins have come against Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands.

Once more without key men Kane Williamson and Tim Southee, Mitchell Santner will take over the captaincy from Tom Latham in a somewhat inexperienced New Zealand lineup.

These two sides last faced each other in the T20 format just two months ago, with adverse weather restricting the three-match series to just one game which was won by India. 

Read on as we explain how to watch an India vs New Zealand live stream and catch the T20 series online from anywhere today.
