Team India will kick off their three-match T20I series against the Kiwis in New Zealand on 18 November 2022. However, India had a disappointing end to their 20-20 World Cup 2022 campaign. England thrashed them in the semi-final in Adelaide on 10 November. Now, they will play the T20I series under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya.
Big-name players like Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli will not play in this series. Many new faces have gained a chance in this series. Now, a video has gone viral where Kane Williamson came up with a heroic effort in front of Pandya before the series.
Here is the shared video:

Kane Williamson and Hardik Pandya will lead New Zealand and India respectively in this series
Speaking of the video, both the skippers were seen attending a pre-series photoshoot with the trophy. However, the series is going to happen in Wellington. But, it seemed that the speed of the wind in Wellington was quite high. That’s why the trophy was about to get slipped and Kane Williamson came up with a heroic effort.
He quickly reacted and saved the trophy from falling. He also came up with a funny statement as he said: “I will have it”. Speaking about the series, Kane Williamson and Hardik Pandya will lead New Zealand and India respectively in this series. Speaking about the series, Hardik Pandya said: “World Cricket is evolving now and they are the ones who are coming up with new plans for the bowling and batting unit. It is about adapting and getting used to new challenges. That is their plus point, that they keep coming up with new tactics.”
“Main boys are not here but at the same point of time the talent that is available, the players who are a part of this tour, they have been playing for a good amount of time (1 – 1.5 years). They have had ample chances to express themselves in international cricket and show what they have. Very excited for the new bunch, new guys, new excitement, new energy, so it will be quite exciting” Pandya concluded.
