India vs NZ 1st T20I Preview : Virat Kohli now eyes to upset Kiwis in shortest format
After India defeated New Zealand 2-1 in a nail biter 3rd ODI match, the focus now move on to the shortest format of the game. Both team now head to the nation's heart New Delhi to the face each other at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.India will be taking momentum with them into this game having beaten New Zealand in their previous two fixtures. But they won't have the home advantage on their side as they have never played a T20I at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Although the Kiwis lost the ODI series, they will take a lot of heart from the fact that they gave the hosts a good run for their money. And their pristine record against India in the 20-overs format will surely serve as a big morale booster for them. New Zealand are in good T20 form at the moment with nine wins in their last eleven matches and we predict them to extend their winning run over India. Till date, there have been four T20 internationals played at the Feroz Shah Kotla of which the most recent two were won by the side fielding first. Since the toss-winning teams here have elected to field first three times out of four and also keeping the dew factor in mind, the team that wins the toss in this match is more likely to take the ball in its hands.
