Dubai [UAE]: New Zealand won the toss and opted to field first against India in their Super 12 match of the ongoing ICC men’s T20 World Cup here at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
Both sides are coming into the contest after suffering a loss against Pakistan. Speaking at the toss, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said, “We are going to bowl, dew factor at this time of the year. Look forward to another challenge. One change, Adam Milne comes in for Tim Seifert. Just to balance our bowling attack. Conway will keep.”
