Kane Williamson (C), Finn Allen, Michael Bracewell, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Daryl Mitchell, Adam Milne, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Tom Latham (WK), Matt Henry
Bracewell has been making some headlines with his fine performance since his debut this year. He has played 12 ODIs so far in which he scored 264 runs and picked 10 wickets. He has an average of 44.00 and bowling economy of 5.06 in this format.
Conway is a reliable opener for the Kiwis. He has been in good form lately. He has scored 363 runs in 9 ODI matches, which includes a century. He is expected to perform well in this series.
Tim Southee looked in great shape in the T20I series where he picked his 2nd hattrick of the T20I career. With his swinging skills, he is a perfect bowler to pick wickets at any stage of the match. He has an experience of 148 ODIs in which he has picked 199 wickets at an economy of 5.42.
Neesham is a good all-rounder and has cemented his place in the playing 11 for the white-ball teams. In 71 ODIs, Neesham has smashed 1409 runs and picked 69 wickets.
Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, Kuldeep Sen
The left-handed opener has been in good form for a long time but gets opportunities in only ODIs these days. He is definitely one of the top ODI batters currently. In 161 ODIs, Dhawan has smashed 6672 runs at an average of 45.08.
Sanju Samson is loved by many fans for his power-hitting skills. He is trying to cement a place in the white-ball team but with the current competition he gets a side signal most of the time. He has played 10 ODIs so far in which he smashed 294 runs with an impressive average of 73.50.
The 30-year-old is a powerplay specialist and can swing the ball both ways. His ability to pick early wickets has helped him pick 15 wickets in 9 ODIs with an economy of 6.01. He definitely deserves a place in the ODI squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023.
Shreyas Iyer is another middle-order batter who is trying to make a place for himself in the ODI team. He looked in good touch in the last white-ball match he played. He has pretty good batting figures in the ODI format. In 33 matches, Iyer has smashed 1299 runs at an average of 48.11.
The 3-match T20I series will begin on 18th November at Sky Stadium in Wellington and the following 2 matches will take place on 20th and 22nd November, respectively.
Quick pacer Umran Malik has found a place for himself in the Indian T20 squad led by left-hand opener Shikhar Dhawan. Sanju Samson has also received a call while pacer Jasprit Bumrah is still out of action.
The last time these two teams came head to head in T20Is was in November 2021 when India won the series 3-0 at home. New Zealand last won a T20I series against India in early 2019 at their home.
As far as the head to head stats are concerned, in T20Is India have an upper hand over New Zealand with 11 wins in 20 head to head T20Is while the Kiwis won the remaining 9 matches.
In New Zealand, India has won 6 T20Is against the hosts, out of a total of 10 matches.

Hardik Pandya is currently the top all-rounder from the Indian side and he has been having a great year so far with both his batting and balling. After lifting the first ever IPL trophy as captain this year, Pandya has only gone up in the game. In 78 T20Is, Pandya has scored 1054 runs and picked 62 wickets.
Also called SKY by the fans, he is currently the no.1 T20I batsman in the ICC T20I rankings. Suryakumar has displayed some brilliant batting this year including the T20 World Cup 2022. He has smashed 1270 runs in 39 matches at an average of 42.33 and an impressive strike rate of 179.63.
Arshdeep Singh has a bowling average of 13.2 which is quite impressive for this format. He has been very impressive this year which resulted in his inclusion in the T20 World Cup team. He is currently the only left-arm pacer in the Indian t20I side and the team is trying to utilize him to the fullest. In 18 matches, Arshdeep has picked 29 wickets.
Chahal is with the T20 World Cup squad but didn’t get a chance to be part of the playing 11. He has been a quality wrist spinner for India for a long time now. Chahal has an experience of 69 T20Is now in which he has picked 85 wickets.
The Indian white-ball teams look in good rhythm and we are expecting the visitors to emerge victorious in both the series.
India will win the T20I series by 3-0 and ODI series by 2-1.
