Injured Guptill out of India T20 series

India won the five-match series by 4-1 and won a bilateral ODI series in New Zealand after 10 years.

While India are yet to open their account in the shortest format of the game in New Zealand, they have a poor head-to-head record against the Black Caps.

Martin Guptill has been ruled out of the entire T20I series against India, and Jimmy Neesham has been roped as his replacement in the side.

The first India Women vs New Zealand Women T20I is being telecast on Star Sports Network.

Harmanpreet Kaur will return as India captain after Mithali Raj shouldered the captaincy duties in the ODI series.




New Zealand cricket team will be looking to turn things around after losing the ODI series 4-1. BCCI regularly shares a glimpse from the show after every match India wins.

Virat Kohli enjoyed a successful season both as a batsman and captain before he was rested for the last three ODIs and the T20I series against New Zealand.

With three T20I tons to his name, Munro is capable of pulling off the occasional blinders and it will be up to Bhuvneshwar Kumar to stop him with the new ball. New Zealand will be led by Kane Williamson.

Coach Gary Stead said Guptill failed a fitness test but he remained hopeful the big-hitting opener would recover in time for the One-day global series against Bangladesh starting next week. The teams look to chase in Wellington as in eight of the nine matches, they choose to field first after winning the toss. "New Zealand will, however, take heart from the sustained excellence of Trent Boult, whose incisiveness will be crucial to their fortunes at the World Cup", Laxman wrote.

India T20 squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Mohammad Siraj.
