Three T20s in three days, three cities.
The Kiwis coach said: “It was decided after talking to Kane and Kyle that they would not play in the T20 series as they were both ready for Test matches. There are also some players who have not played the entire series. That’s why we brought the rest of the players to the screen to keep the team balanced at a time like this.

Without Kohli-Bumra ..
Key players like Virat Kohli and Jaspreet Bumra do not play T20s in workload management. Stead, however, feels that the Indian team will always be a strong team. They are still a very good team. Now they have a new coach in the form of Rahul Dravid. When a new coach arrives, I know the players want to impress him and get their due on the team. I hope the Indian team is a very strong team and will do very well against us. So we have to be positive. He said we need to be very clear on our strategy to play with these players.
