India will be hosting the Blackcaps New Zealand for a three-match T20 international series at home straight after the T20I World cup and this will be the belter of a series. India lost to New Zealand recently in the T20I world cup campaign and they have scores to settle down in the T20I series.
This series will also be the first assignment for Rahul Dravid as the head coach of Indian cricket and it will be interesting to see how he goes about his business. There have already been signs that the seniors Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are likely to be rested for the series. It is time to look at the predicted India squad for the T20I series against New Zealand.
India vs New Zealand 2021: India Squad For T20I Series (Predicted)
KL Rahul (C):
KL Rahul has been looked at as a future captain for India and with the likes of both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli being rested, the onus will be on Rahul to lead the side to victory. Rahul has captained India in the past and he has done really well in T20Is as a batsman as well. He should be the top pick for the New Zealand home series.
