IND vs NZ Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today’s Match

McLean Park, Napier, January 23 at 07:30 AM IST

After creating history down-under, the caravan of Indian cricket will move around 4200 km to the land of Kiwis for an exciting tour which will include 5 ODIs followed by three T20Is.

The last time India visited here, it was a massacre for them as they could not win a single one-dayer from 5 attempts and lost the Test series as well. But this time around, with some confidence on their back, India would look to turn the tables around and put up a better show.

Best win % since Jan 2017

Team Mat Won Lost Tied Win %
England 44 32 10 0 72.73%
India 52 37 12 2 71.15%
New Zealand 36 22 12 0 61.11%
South Africa 37 22 15 0 59.46%
Pakistan 37 21 15 0 56.76%

The Blackcaps, on the other hand, are in an awesome form as they have won last 5 ODI series at their home. They are brutal at their home with their latest victim being Sri Lanka who were taken down abruptly in Test by 0-1, ODIs by 3-0 and the lone T20I by 1-0.

With both teams on the top of their game, this series will be the best treat in the new year before the World Cup fever takes charge.

Head-to-head (last five ODIs)

New Zealand have won- 2

India have won- 3

IND vs NZ Dream11 Team


  • It is generally seen when India’s top order clicks any score is achievable while chasing and any score can be put on the scoreboard while batting first.
  • The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli would be crucial.
  • Man of the series of ODIs down-under, MS Dhoni has kicked-off his new year in style with three 50s on the trot. He will look to carry forward his exuberant show.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar ended up as the leading wicket-taker in the series, Mohammad Shami also bowled well with both new and the old ball, while Yuzvendra Chahal made an impact right away when he featured in the final ODI of the series with 6 wickets to his name.

New Zealand:

  • The openers, Martin Guptill and Colin Munro would be the key figures to give them a blazing start.
  • The ever so dependent and rock solid stature of Kane Williamson will be crucial in this series for the Blackcaps along with the in-form Ross Taylor who is scoring at will.
  • With the return of Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner, the Blackcaps have definitely got the core required in the all-rounder facet.
  • Tim Southee and Trent Boult with the new ball upfront are efficient enough to trouble any batting line-up around the world.
