The T20 series between India and New Zealand starts on 24 January. The first match of this series will be played in Auckland.
The live telecast of this match can be seen from 12.30 pm on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports Hindi Channel.
Information of India's possible XI and team combination for this match is given further.
New pair can open
In India's last T20 series, the pair of Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul opened against Sri Lanka. However, Shikhar Dhawan suffered an injury in the third ODI of the series against Australia. Because of this, there is doubt about his participation in the first T20. In such a situation, the pair of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma can open for India for the first T20 match. Both of them had a tremendous performance in the T20 series against the West Indies.
India's possible XI for the first T20
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dubey, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jaspreet Bumrah, Navdeep Saini
