The match will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network on Wednesday (February 5) from 12:30 PM onwards.

When is India vs New Zealand 1st T20? "Of course, this format demands aggressive batting and I'll try to display it tomorrow and in the further matches", Dhawan added. India, will have a few changes in the team, with Rishabh Pant and Siddarth Kaul coming back to the squad, will hope to test a few more players before the World Cup. As India will be eyeing their first T20 series win in New Zealand, it will be interesting to see whether Rishabh Pant get a place in India playing 11 for the opening T20 match.

Guptill had sustained the injury while throwing a ball during fielding practice on the eve of the fifth ODI after which he was forced to miss that contest.

Not been part of the ODI series in Australia and New Zealand, Pant would be looking to make the most of this opportunity at the top of the order, something which even Dhawan mentioned about him during his interaction with the media.

A lot will depend on the top-four batsmen - Kane Williamson, Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grandhomme and Lockie Ferguson. "She will slot right in having already been with the squad for the ODI campaign".
