The weather currently in Thiruvananthapuram does not look good as it continues to rain and has been delayed by 25 minutes. The ground staff is confident they can dry out the ground quickly when the rain stops.
The three-match T20 series is currently tied at 1-1, and both the teams go into the final T20 under pressure. New Zealand won the previous T20 by 40 runs, and the Indian team was entirely out powered by the Kiwis. The Indian middle order struggled during the last T20 as both the openers also failed. Only Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni had respectable scores to their name.
