IND vs NZ, 3rd T20: Virat Kohli is only 25 runs away from breaking Dhoni's big record

Breaking records in any format of cricket for Virat Kohli is no longer a big deal and when he walks to bat against New Zealand in the third T20I match in Hamilton on Wednesday, he can break MS Dhoni's another big record.

The captain of the Indian cricket team is just 25 runs behind Dhoni in the list of highest run-scorers as captain in T20 Internationals. Kohli currently sits fourth behind MS Dhoni (1,112), New Zealand captain Kane Williamson (1148), and South Africa captain Faf du Plessis (1,273).
Apart from this, Virat Kohli stands just one half-century away from scoring the most fifty-plus scores in T20I as a captain. Kohli currently has scored eight 50 plus scores and on par with Du Plessis and Williamson.

The long list of records does not come to an end as Kohli can also become the second captain to score 50 sixes in T20Is. Before him, England's Eoin Morgan has achieved this feat for the first time. Kohli is currently seven sixes away from being included in that list.
The 'Men in Blue' have won the first two matches of the five-match T20I series which were played in Auckland. In the first match, India chased 204 runs in 19 overs, while the second match was a low-scoring affair.

KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer have starred with the bat. While Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja showed their talent with the ball. Now the third match of this series will be played in Hamilton on 29th January.

IND vs NZ: Indian team can make a major change in the 3rd T20, See the Probable XI

IND vs NZ: Indian team can make a major change in the 3rd T20, See Probable XI
The Indian team will face the struggling New Zealanders in the 3rd T20 match in Hamilton on Wednesday. Team India now need only 1 victory to win this 5-match T20 series and can take this momentum to clean sweep the series.

After their win in Auckland, Virat Kohli indicated that they would go with the same winning combination, but on Hamilton's flat track, India could make a major change in their bowling combination. So let's see what India's Probable XI might be for the 3rd T20.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open again for India, but Rohit has not done anything special in two matches and would like to make a comeback in this match. While Rahul is in fine form, he is scoring consistently at the top and becoming a match-winning contributor.

The Indian captain Virat Kohli has performed well in both the matches. Shreyas Iyer is establishing himself as India's number 4 batsmen in limited-overs cricket and this match will be another opportunity for him to improve his credibility.
Ravindra Jadeja was the star with the ball in the last match and he can be far more effective with his accuracy at Seddon Park. After a costly first match of the series, Shami made a comeback in the second match.

Yuzvendra Chahal has been very good in the middle overs and helps create a good rhythm for the team during this period.
Medium-pacer Shardul Thakur has not been best in this series. In such a situation, this is where India can go for the extra speed of Navdeep Saini. Saini can trouble New Zealand's batting order in the powerplay with his speed.

In the two matches of the series so far, Bumrah, who has given only two fours and a six in eight overs and give just 52 runs. Saini, Shami and Bumrah's combination can certainly create more problems for the hosts in the 3rd T20.

India's Probable Playing XI for 3rd T20:
IND vs NZ: Indian team can make a major change in the 3rd T20, See Probable XI

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvender Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
