Now, both teams will lock horns in the second of the three-match T20I series at the AB Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on Sunday, the 29th of January.
Earlier, it was the men in blue that clinched the three-match ODI series by a convincing margin of 3-0 with three straight wins in the series. Young batter Shubman Gill won the ‘player of the series’ award for his batting excellence throughout the entire ODI series by scoring 360 runs in three innings with a brilliant ODI double century of 208 runs in the first ODI against NZ.
