"For someone like me, I try and learn from watching each and every player we have in our team because everyone has done something in the past and they have won matches for the team especially Dhoni, who has done a lot for the team".

3rd T20I, Preview: In a season of many firsts for the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma's men will be aiming to become first among the equals to win a T20 worldwide series in New Zealand when the two sides clash in the final match here Sunday.

New Zealand beat India by four runs in a thrilling Twenty20 global in Hamilton to take the series 2-1.

It was also a vital knock from Munro, whose position in the New Zealand side ahead of the World Cup had been in question after a string of failures in the ODI and Twenty20 matches against India.

"These (Australia and New Zealand) two series I have learnt a lot".

India are expected to remain unchanged from the first two games. While India replaced Yuzvendra Chahal with Kuldeep Yadav, the Kiwis handed over a debut cap to Blair Tickner as they rested Lockie Ferguson.

The Indian bowling unit will look to replicate their good show from the last match where they found their rhythm after a pasting in the opener from Tim Seifert.

Meanwhile, Indian bowlers too showcased an impressive performance, with Krunal Pandya bagging three wickets and Khaleel Ahmed, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar sharing four wickets among themselves to restrict the hosts for 158.

"Even the last game was a learning experience for me". There will be a similar plan in place on Sunday also.

The 1-2 series defeat was India's first T20I series loss after winning eight and drawing two. Having regularly lost middle-order wickets, India gave the impression of lacking behind in the chase. In their allotted quota of 20 overs, New Zealand ended up scoring 212-4.

Skipper Kane Williamson has endured a quiet limited overs series by his standards and senior batsman Ross Taylor has also blown hot and cold during the last three weeks.

Scott Kuggeleijn took the Black Caps' other wicket - his first of the series.

Match Starts at 12:30 pm.
