Kedar Jadhav (up eight places to 35th) is another one to advance for India in the list led by their captain Virat Kohli.

The New Zealand squad includes newcomer Daryl Mitchell, son of former rugby player and one-time All Blacks coach John Mitchell, who is now an England assistant coach. Rishabh Pant is back in the side along with allrounder Krunal Pandya.

India have played only one bilateral series in the shortest format of the game in New Zealand. The visitors will now play three T20Is against the Kiwis, the first of which will be played tomorrow at Wellington. An MS Dhoni-led side was thrashed 2-0 in a two-match series in 2008-09.

Dhoni's masterclass drew accolades and appreciation from all over the world, with a special tweet from the International Cricket Council (ICC) who warned all the batsmen not to leave the crease when the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman is behind the stumps. The LIVE telecast of the match will be available on Star Sports 1/HD.

While volunteering in the organization's kitchen to prepare meals for the women, Meghan wrote encouraging messages on the bananas. After the visit, Sam said: "For them to decide to come here is heartwarming and makes you think these women are not forgotten".

India vs New Zealand 1 T20I will be played at Wellington from 12:30 PM IST.

It is worth mentioning that India will be playing a T20I in New Zealand for the first time since 2009.

The latest update also takes into account India's preceding three-match series against Australia. Notably, India had won the ODI series that followed the T20I series by a comfortable 3-1 margin. While Shami was named the Player of the Series for his consistent performance, Rayudu won the Player of the Match in the fifth ODI after scoring a very important 90.

While chasing the 253-run target set by India, New Zealand batsmen squandered their starts but the home team remained in the contest until Jimmy Neesham (44 off 32) was dismissed in the 37th over.
