IND vs NZ, Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma Press Conference© AFP
India take on New Zealand in a three-match T20I series, starting Wednesday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The other two matches will be held in Ranchi and Kolkata. This is the first assignment for newly appointed Team India coach Rahul Dravid and T20I captain Rohit Sharma. Both men are addressing the media before the start of the series. It is a fresh beginning for the team in the shortest format after India’s disappointing and early exit from the recently concluded T20 World Cup, which was played in UAE and Oman. The tournament saw the end of Virat Kohli’s reign as captain in the shortest format as he stepped down from the role. Ravi Shastri’s tenure as Team India’s head coach also ended with the tournament. Both Dravid and Rohit will have their sights firmly on the T20 World Cup, which will be held in less than a year’s time in Australia and this series will mark the beginning of the preparations for the same.
