IND vs NZ Live, 3rd T20I: Toss delayed due to wet outfield in Napier©AFP
India vs New Zealand, 3rd T20I, live score updates: The coin toss for the third and final T20I between India and New Zealand has been postponed due to rain in Napier. Hardik Pandya-led Team India would look to seal the T20I series against New Zealand when they take the field against the hosts in the third and final match on Tuesday in Napier. The visitors are riding high on the victory they secured in the second T20I, thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s whirlwind 111 run run. It would be interesting to see if Team India makes any changes to the side that won the previous match. On the other hand, Kane Williamson misses the last T20I, and in his place it would be Tim Southee who would lead. (LIVE SCORECARD)

India vs New Zealand: Here’s what Deepak Hooda said before the coin toss
I’m an all-around hitter, so scoring runs is very important, but I’m also working on my bowling and want to help out when the team needs me. I’ve been playing as an all rounder since my debut, I’ve been working hard on my bowling for the last 3 months even when I’m not playing on the team. I would like to hit on 5, we have a legend playing on 3 and I have to be realistic, I don’t get that spot (laughs). It’s sometimes a problem to adjust to at bats on 5 or 6, but I’ve fulfilled that role because I’m a utility player and have to play according to the situation of the game.
