Shubnam Gill could make his T20I debut, while Rishabh Pant will come back into the side after missing the ODI series. Now the men in blue gear up to take on the Kiwis in the three-match T20I series from Wednesday. Apart from Pant, India are also likely to play both Dhoni and Karthik. The first T20 will be played tomorrow (February 5) at Wellington. From that squad, only Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik are part of the current squad.

Rohit Sharma will be India's stand-in captain as Virat Kohli has been rested by the Board of Control for Cricket in India for the last two ODIs and the entire T20I series.
