  • India’s batting order looked as solid as ever in the second T20I

Earlier, Virat Kohli led India to a historic Test and ODI bilateral series win in Australia. "You need to be open anyway if you are playing for a team like India", said Shankar after his team's four-run loss in the third T20.

For his 139 runs at a strike rate of 173.75, wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert won the Man of the Series award after New Zealand won the three-match Twenty20 Internationals series decider against India by four runs at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Monday.

"For someone like me, I try and learn from watching each and every player we have in our team because everyone has done something in the past and they have won matches for the team especially Dhoni, who has done a lot for the team".

"These (Australia and New Zealand) two series I have learnt a lot".

However, Sunday will be a different day and there can't be a bigger motivation than winning yet another series in challenging overseas conditions.

India played the same XI in the first two games and in all likelihood, will maintain continuity unless there are some niggles.

"We have rectified some of our mistakes from the first game and hopefully a few which are there will also be corrected", Khaleel added.

In what was the only change for India, they swapped their wrist-spinner including Kuldeep Yadav in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.

Krunal Pandya has once again punched above his weight with some gritty performances in the two games. His accuracy is one of the biggest positives going into Sunday's match along with the intelligence of senior seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

India, who came into the three T20Is on the back of their crushing 4-1 win in the five-match ODI series against New Zealand, failed to continue their dominance and slump to a humiliating 80-run defeat in the opening T20I at Westpac Stadium in Wellington. Having regularly lost middle-order wickets, India gave the impression of lacking behind in the chase.

New Zealand, sent into bat, made 212 for four with India 208 for six at the close.

Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya were only able to take 11 runs off it, with Karthik's six from the final ball in vain.
