After being dropped for the ODIs, right-handed batsman KL Rahul will join back team India for T20 matches by replacing Kedar Jadhav while opener Shikhar Dhawan will maintain his position in the team. India pacer Ashish Nehra will also bid farewell to his 19-year long cricket career in the first T20 match against New Zealand on November 1, 2017.

Captain Kohli who was a bit disappointed with his team for losing the first match in the ODIs against New Zealand, praised his teammates for their winning streak in the last match. He was much more impressed with the bowlers who were able to restrict the New Zealand team from achieving the target of 338 runs by 7.

Expressing his joy, the captain said, "To be fair to the bowlers: the wicket eased out nicely. The ball was coming onto the bat beautifully. But glad the bowlers came out on top: it was like a knockout game for us, and the boys showed their character."

Indian and New Zealand team will now lock horns in the T20 series of 3 matches starting from November 1. The first match will be played at the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium in Indian national capital followed by the second match in Rajkot on November 4 while the final match will take place in Thiruvananthapuram on November 7.
