When and where will the LIVE telecast of India vs New Zealand Women 3T20 be available?

India are expected to remain unchanged from the first two games. Kuldeep Yadav has been brought in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.

A New Zealand XI has beaten Bangladesh by two wickets in a one-day match at Lincoln.

Seifert's dismissal did not reduce the momentum of the New Zealand innings as Munro added another half-century partnership with Kane Williamson.

Munro smashed 72 (40), including five fours and five sixes, while Seifert hit three fours and three sixes in his 43 (25). In their allotted quota of 20 overs, New Zealand ended up scoring 212-4. While the rest of the Indian bowlers had to face the brunt of the Kiwi batsmen, Kuldeep Yadav bowled his four overs outstandingly at an economy rate of 6.50 in addition to picking up two wickets. Rohit felt India's combination suited chasing. After losing his opening partner, Rohit Sharma built a crucial partnership with Vijay Shankar.

But what will particularly please the management is how the revival has been led by the players who needed to make their mark - Ambati Rayudu and Vijay Shankar starred in the victory in the final ODI and it was Krunal Pandya and Rishabh Pant, playing just his second match in the series, leading things on Friday.

Scott Kuggeleijn took the Black Caps' other wicket - his first of the series.

"Skipper Rohit Sharma was disappointed that the men in blue could not get the job done".

Having required 16 runs off last over, Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya displayed their cameo but could not seal the series-decider match for India.

India will look to end what has been a fine tour of New Zealand on a terrific high when the teams clash in the third and final Twenty20 global in Hamilton on Sunday.

India may have lost the third T20I and the series, but MS Dhoni still managed to win hearts with a gesture after a fan invaded the pitch to touch his feet.

On the third ball of the final over, Karthik denied a single and later ended up taking a single off the next ball.
