New Zealand vs India on February 6

New Zealand T20 squad: Kane Williamson (c), Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Blair Tickner, James Neesham. Shaheen Afridi, who came into prominence in last year's ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in New Zealand, is also among those to benefit. The visitors will now play three T20Is against the Kiwis, the first of which will be played tomorrow at Wellington.

Rohit Sharma now has a shot at history as he prepares to lead India in Virat Kohli's absence in the upcoming three-match T20I series against the Black Caps.

New Zealand cricket team will be looking to turn things around after losing the ODI series 4-1. For someone who has won matches for India in the recent past, Karthik is usually the one who is left out when it comes to trying other players.

The five-match ODI series has solved a part of the puzzle as India look to finalise their ICC World Cup 2019 squad. Kuldeep and Chahal will pose a threat like they did in the ODIs, unless India decide to rest one of the two and test new combinations.

Afghan president calls on Taliban to 'enter serious talks' with Kabul
Australian combat troops were withdrawn in December 2013, but 400 personnel remain in Afghanistan as trainers and advisers. Trump has said he wants to pull out half the remaining 14,000 American troops, according to United States officials.

Dhoni, who has the most number of stumping to his name in worldwide cricket with 190, was on every cricket fan's lips for his brilliant effort with the gloves to dismiss New Zealand's Jimmy Neesham in the fifth and final One-Day global on Sunday.

Martin Guptill was on Monday ruled out of the New Zealand side for the Twenty20 worldwide series against India after failing to recover from a back injury. Boult topped the rankings in January 2016, and is again on his way up, with only India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan ahead of him.

With three T20I tons to his name, Munro is capable of pulling off the occasional blinders and it will be up to Bhuvneshwar Kumar to stop him with the new ball.
