Head to Head in T20I
Total Matches : 17
Won By New Zealand : 9
Won by India : 6
Tied : 2
As far as head to head stats is concerned, New Zealand have a better record against the men in blue. Out of 15 matches, the Kiwi side have came out victorious in 9 occassions.
Although head to head stats is in favor of the visiting team, one would probably give the home side the slightest of advantage in this match. Yes, New Zealand were brilliant in the last ICC tournament as they reached the finals. New Zealand even defeated India by 8 wickets in the league match in the tournament. Personally, I would give it 60-40 in favor of India,
