India and New Zealand will square off in a warm-up game ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 at The Gabba in Brisbane. India recently faced Australia in the first warm-up fixture at the same venue and won the game in a final-over thriller. On the other hand, New Zealand was handed a very disappointing loss by South Africa, who won the contest by nine wickets after dishing the Kiwis out for just 98 runs.
This will also be the last warm-up game for the two teams before they start their Super 12 campaign of the T20 World Cup. Neither India nor New Zealand deployed a fixed playing XI in their previous warm-up fixture and thus the two teams would still be looking at trying all the players so as to give them sufficient game time.

IND vs NZ Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
The Indian opening batter, and the team’s vice-captain, was criticized for his poor form but he shut all the critics with some flawless batting performances. He has been in good touch and has given India the perfect start.
Probable best bowler
The pacer has got a grip on the pitch conditions and will prove to be a useful bowler in the upcoming game. He was brilliant during the death overs in the last game and bounced back stronger to put up a worthy performance. He will be the one to lookout for.
