The Men in Blue have never won a T20I series in New Zealand. Hence, the five-match T20I series is a big opportunity for Kohli and Co to script history.
While the focus was largely on the 50-over World Cup of 2019 till June, now all of that focus has shifted to the T20 World Cup of 2020.
T20 is not an easy format to play and some players found that out the hard way.
Only a handful of players from their first T20I game are still part of the national side.

India needs to address these issues soon before time runs out.

Afghanistan registered an impressive 41-run win in the second T20I.
The second-grade side of the world number eight managed to humiliate the world number one side on their home turf.
