Milne, Sodhi and Neesham return as the visitors face a must-win game

Shake India chose bowling vs New Zealand

If his first two games as a full-time T20I captain are anything to go through, Rohit Sharma will significantly improve his predecessor Virat Kohli’s record in one respect: winners. India, which holds a 1-0 lead in this three-game series, opted to bowling for the second time in two games under him, with dew expected later in the evening at Ranchi.

India made a forced switch to their XI, with Mohammed Siraj having snapped the ribbon from his left hand as he stopped a ball from his own bowling alley during the first T20I in Jaipur. That paved the way for Harshal Patel, who was called up for being the biggest land receiver at IPL 2021, to make his international debut.

New Zealand made three changes to their XI from Jaipur, bringing back three first-choice players who had rested after the T20 World Cup final. Fast pitcher Adam Milne, leggy player Ish Sodhi and off-roader James Neesham are back, replacing Lockie Ferguson, Todd Astle and Rachin Ravindra respectively.

India 1 KL Rahul, 2 Rohit Sharma (capt), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Rishabh Pant (week), 5 Shreyas Iyer, 6 Venkatesh Iyer, 7 Axar Patel, 8 Harshal Patel, 9 R Ashwin, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Deepak Chahar.

New Zealand 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Daryl Mitchell, 3 Mark Chapman, 4 Glenn Phillips, 5 Tim Seifert (week), 6 James Neesham, 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Adam Milne, 9 Tim Southee (captain), 10 Ish Sodhi, 11 Trent Boult.
