India vs. New Zealand, 3rd T20I- Match Prediction 2023

by  Shashi Shukla  •  Last updated on 2023-02-01 01:59:21


In the third T20I, India and New Zealand will face off on Wednesday (February 1). India has tied the three-match T20 series at one game each after winning the second T20I in Lucknow. A victory in Ahmedabad will support both India's victory in the series and the Hardik Pandya-led team to maintain the top spot.

As a T20 captain, Hardik Pandya is yet to lose a series. The all-around player has three T20 series victories under his belt and hopes to add a fourth against New Zealand. Pandya is employing his resources wisely and has so far appeared composed and calm. The 29-year-old is doing a good job of adjusting to the situation, and the players respect him for it. Pandya will be careful not to let his guard down in the last T20 match against New Zealand. India's batting has appeared somewhat weak, so that is the one area they would like to strengthen. The host team's batters will be eager to take advantage of the opportunity because Ahmedabad's pitch encourages run scoring. New Zealand will win the series if they play well as a team with both the bat and the ball.

The weather conditions are in favor of the spectators to enjoy the match. It is expected to be a thrilling match as both teams gear up to secure a win and snatch the series title.

Match Prediction:

India is still the favorite in the series and is expected to mark their next series win under Hardik Pandya's captaincy. The last match was not so good according to the pitch conditions as New Zealand could score only 99 runs and India managed to score 101 runs in 19.5 overs. Considering the venue change, this match is expected to be a run scoring game. If Indian batters succeed in scoring well they will win this series.
