IND vs NZ Cricket Betting Tips, 1st T20I India vs New Zealand Live Score, Match Prediction, Pitch & Weather


IND vs NZ Prediction: The grueling cricket calendar continues to take its toll as India welcome New Zealand, less than three days after the latter were humbled in the T20 Cricket World Cup Final. It has been 17 days since the Kiwis more or less knocked India out of the Cup. Kane Willamson has been rested and Devon Conway is out with a self-inflicted injury. Tim Southee will be leading the side on this tour.

It is the end of an era for Indian cricket as Virat Kohli has stepped down from captaincy. It will be fascinating to see how Rohit Sharma performs as skipper with the much adored Rahul Dravid now at the helm. A host of youngsters who performed well in the IPL like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Venkatesh Iyer, Avesh Khan, and Harshal Patel, etc., have been given a chance in the national colors.

Win Prediction

IND – 60%
NZ – 40%

Rohit Sharma will lead Team India while Kiwis are without regular captain Kane Williamson. India will field a lot of young guns with plenty to prove at the big stage. India’s inexperienced bowling is a concern. However, we expect the men in blue to start the series on a winning note.

Bet365: IND: 1.40; NZ: 3.00

IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction

Here is the India vs New Zealand Dream11 Team Prediction and three players who can make an impact:

Venkatesh Iyer could make his debut tonight because of his versatility. He can open the batting as well as bat in the middle order. He was exceptional in the IPL and also provides a bowling option.

We are tipping leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal to have a good game. The Kiwi middle-order looks brittle without Williamson and Ross Taylor. Chahal has 63 wickets in 49 games at an economy of 8.3.

Mitchell Santner can be an excellent differential for your IND vs NZ Dream11 teams. He can contribute handsomely with both bat and ball. He has 62 wickets in 68 innings and averages 16 with the bat.

IND Playing XI

KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal

NZ Playing XI

Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Tim Seifert (wk), James Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Todd Astle, Trent Boult, and Tim Southee

IND vs NZ Today Match Pitch Report

The Jaipur wicket is batter-friendly. Batsmen should make the most of powerplay overs where the ball should come nicely onto the bat. However, with the big boundaries at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, spinners can come into play in the middle overs. A total of 160-170 is the par score on this pitch. Because dew may be a factor in the second innings, the side that wins the toss might chase. India vs New Zealand Today Match Prediction odds are slightly in favour of India.

Predicted Score:

If NZ bats first: 150-160
If IND bats first: 160-170
