India vs New Zealand T20 series starting from 24 January, 2020. The both team are ready for battle in the Auckland. Now, there is a Question in people's mind, about playing XI in team. The main problem will be choosing the right combination between the captains of both the teams during the first T20 between India and New Zealand at Auckland. Team India's record against New Zealand is not good anyway. In such a situation, all eyes will be on the Indian top order. Although Team India has good bowlers like Shami and Bumrah, but defeating New Zealand at their home has been challenging from the very beginning. Let's know about some of the first T20 factors between India and New Zealand-

Captains press conference news

Kane Williamson: Forgetting past failures, now his team will have to focus on the series against India. You have to keep moving forward. The schedule is such that the challenges are much faster and bigger. We have a team like India which is one of the best teams in the world but different in T20. We are ready for this challenge.

Virat Kohli: Rahul's dual role as batsman wicketkeeper has given the team more options. Rahul will keep wicketkeeping in both ODIs and T20s. He will start the innings in the T20s but will go into the middle order in ODIs.
