    NZ vs IND Today Match Prediction: The first T20I between India and New Zealand to be held at Wellington was washed out due to rain. Now both sides will head to Mount Maunganui to play the 2nd of 3-match T20I series. With the selection committee sacked and a new T20I captain to be appointed soon, this series will be a selection trial for the young fringe players. Top stars from India like Kohli, Rohit, and Rahul will miss out on this series. India will be led by Hardik Pandya and will be coached by VVS Laxman. Whereas New Zealand has assembled a near to full strength squad with the exception of Trent Boult. Let’s see if India can rise up from their forgettable performance in the semifinals.
