India 29/0 in 4 overs Ferguson gives Indian openers taste of some serious pace. Rohit and Rahul cautiously take four runs in the over.

India 10/0 in 2 overs Boult allows no width in his opening over; just three runs off it.

Toss Report

India's newly-appointed captain for the shortest format of the game Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first against New Zealand in the first T20I of the three-match series here at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Wednesday. Venkatesh Iyer will be making his debut for Team India after an extraordinary season in IPL  2021 for Kolkata Knight Riders. 

Rohit Sharma We will bowl first. The wicket looks good, thought behind is to have a score behind us, there was quite a lot of dew while practising from a couple of days. It's been good, has been only 2 days, been a quick turnaround, back from Dubai, spent a couple of days at home and back here. But it'll be good for the team. We have Shreyas Iyer back, Venkatesh is debuting, Bhuvi, Siraj and Chahar are back. We're playing three seamers and two spinners. We have one eye on the next World Cup, it's a lot of time ahead, we'll try our options, some results might not be immediate, but the process will be crucial.

Tim Southee We'd have bowled as well, keeping the dew factor in mind. Pretty disappointed at not winning the World Cup, but this is a great place to play cricket and the team is looking forward to it. Another chance to give chances - 4 changes for us - Neesham, KW, Sodhi and Milne miss out; Mark Chapman, Todd Astle, Rachin Ravindra and Lockie Ferguson are in
