Live cricket score India vs New Zealand, IND vs NZ 4th T20I, Wellington, January 31 Match Time

Hello and welcome to our live blog of the 4th T20I between India and New Zealand at Westpac Stadium, Wellington on Friday. With the series sealed 3-0 in a Super Over thriller, India will be looking to keep the momentum and the winning streak going, but this also presents them with the chance to experiment and give playtime for their remaining members of the squad namely – Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant, Washington Sundar and Navdeep Saini.


As for New Zealand, it’s a matter of pride now, as they still hold a 8-6 advantage over India in T20I Head to Head and they will be looking to pocket their first win of the series. Kane Williamson had to do all the work in the 3rd T20I, which New Zealand had it their bag, only to lose under the pressure. They have shown that they are no pushovers and can pack a punch against the much-fancied Indians. Colin De Grandhomme is out of the squad and, in comes batsman Tom Bruce. This could mean allrounder Daryl Mitchell getting a game to maintain the balance that De Grandhomme gives.

TOSS The toss between India and New Zealand will take place at 12 PM (IST).

Time: 12.30 PM IST.

Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington
