Rohit Sharma's side will be aiming to clinch their maiden T20I series on Kiwi soil.

India have been superb on their tour of Australia and now in New Zealand.

The T20I series victory could be an icing on the cake.

The visitors would be eyeing to repeat a similar show after dominating proceedings in Auckland.

India will be confident to get the job done.

Positivity

India have plenty of positives to draw from

Rohit was among the runs in the previous match and he is the best bet in providing the right start.

MS Dhoni has also continued in the same vein and India will rely on him in getting them past the line.

The biggest bonus was the runs from Rishabh Pant's bat.

This will serve him well.

All-rounder Krunal Pandya holds the key as well.

New Zealand need to get going in middle overs

New Zealand were left baffled on Friday after a controversial decision by the third umpire that saw Daryl Mitchell get dismissed.

The Kiwis were 20-25 runs short at Eden Park and this time Kane Williamson's side need to sort out their overall batting.

Their application in the middle order will be key.

The bowling has been impressive though.
