New Zealand vs India 2020: 5 Players To Watch Out
5. Colin de Grandhomme:
Going by the form, Colin de Grandhomme will be a massive player in the upcoming series between India and New Zealand. The flamboyant batsman was sensational when he was promoted up in the batting order against England team. He has been delivering the goods for the team for a while now and looking to show his class against the tough Indian side.
Grandhomme, in New Zealand conditions, has always been an impact player for New Zealand with the bat and the ball. As he failed to get an IPL contract, this would be a brilliant chance for him to showcase his class in order to be the first name on the replacement chart. In his 33 T20I games so far, he played at a strike rate of 148.6, which makes him a player to watch out in the series.
