IND vs NZ Prediction: India are set to play New Zealand in the 2nd T20I today. JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi will host the clash. After the World Cup debacle in UAE, Team India has started the series on a positive note under the new regime.
India won the toss for a change and put New Zealand to bat first in the previous encounter in Jaipur. Half-centuries by Martin Guptill and Mark Chapman set up a great platform for the Kiwis, but they failed to capitalize in the end, posting 164/6. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravi Ashwin picked up two wickets each. Rohit Sharma (48) and Surya Kumar Yadav (62) did the bulk of the scoring in the chase. It got tense at the end but Rishabh Pant saw the side over the line.

But for a few jitters in the end, Team India was on top of the game for much of the first encounter. They are expected to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The Kiwis batting looks thin at the moment without some regular stars. The betting sites also seem to favour the Indians.

Here is the India vs New Zealand Dream11 Team Prediction and three players who can make an impact:
KL Rahul missed out on a big score in the last game but looked good in his short innings. He has been one of the most consistent batters in the shortest format over the last few years. He has 1766 runs in 51 innings that includes 15 half-centuries and two hundreds.
We are tipping leg spinner Ish Sodhi to have a good game. The Kiwis dearly missed his services in the last game and he should be back in the side. Sodhi has 82 wickets in 62 games at an economy of just over 8.
Daryl Mitchell can be an excellent differential for your IND vs NZ Dream11 teams. He couldn’t contribute with the bat last time as he was bowled by a peach from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He has 356 runs and 6 wickets in 23 matches.
IND Playing XI
Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj

The Ranchi wicket will host an even contest between bat and ball. Batsmen should make the most of powerplay. Spinners can come into the game in middle overs. The average score on this ground is 150. 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.
If NZ bats first: 150-160
If IND bats first: 160-170
