India have been on a mighty good roll of late conquering all comers at home with Australia being the latest team to face the Indian heat. After starting the series with a 10-wicket win, the Aussies went down 2-1 as India boarded the flight to New Zealand in full confidence. With the Eden Park pitch known to offer some bounce and carry to the bowlers, India might opt for a pace-heavy attack for the first T20I with Shivam Dube too coming into the picture. With Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of the series with a shoulder injury, KL Rahul is certain to open along with Rohit Sharma.

The Kiwis went through a horror tour against Australia last month and they are certain to come in full force against India at home. Nothing less than a resounding series win will be on their minds and they have the wherewithal to upset India's apple cart too. In fact, NZ hold a healthy 8-3 lead over India in head-to-head meetings in T20Is and they would want to extend it as not many teams in recent past have that kind of record against India.
