  • India vs New Zealand Dream11

    IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: New Zealand recently clinched the ODI series against Pakistan 2-1, and will now cross the border to play three ODIs and three T20Is against India. The Men in Blue are playing Sri Lanka today in a dead rubber, having already convincingly secured the series 2-0. The series with the Kiwis promises to be an exciting one with India taking on the No.1 side in limited-overs.

    India vs New Zealand Pitch Report

    The pitch at Hyderabad is expected to be a belter. The average first innings score here is 276 in ODIs. Spinners are expected to have a say as game progresses. Inspite of the previous history, we feel the side winning the toss might like to chase.

    Team Form Guide:

    IND (recent last): L L W W W
    NZ (recent last): NR NR L W W


    1. Rohit Sharma (C)
    2. Shubman Gill
    3. Virat Kohli
    4. Ishan Kishan (WK)
    5. Shreyas Iyer
    6. Hardik Pandya
    7. Washington Sundar
    8. Shardul Thakur
    9. Yuzvendra Chahal
    10. Mohammed Siraj
    11. Umran Malik

    • With Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, and KL Rahul out, Ishan Kishan is set to feature once again. We expect him to slot in in the middle-order despite his double-century as an opener against Bangladesh recently.
    • Washington Sundar is a like-for-like replacement for Axar Patel who is not in the squad due to family commitments. Shardul Thakur provides depth to the batting-order and has a knack for picking up wickets.
    • With Shami looking off-colour, Umran Malik looks good to continue. Chahal is our pick over Kuldeep Yadav given the number of right-handers in the Blackcaps team.

    Rohit Sharma Stats in ODIs

    Indian skipper is back to his attacking best and would be looking to score big in the opener. Here is how he has performed vs New Zealand over the years:

    Yuzvendra Chahal Stats in ODIs

    With the sheer number of aggressive batsmen in the New Zealand side, Chahal is destined to be amongst wickets. Check out his stats vs New Zealand in ODIs

    • The Kiwis are expected to field much of the same 11 that played against Pakistan.
    • Mark Chapman should slot in for Kane Williamson while Blair Tickner might replace Tim Southee. Southee, Kane, and Tom Latham have been rested for the series.
    • Ish Sodhi will retain his spot which also features spin-bowling all-rounders Santner and Bracewell.

    Phillips is a hard hitting batsmen in great form. He can also chip in some spin and take the odd wicket.

    Who will win India vs New Zealand Today match?

    • Three ODIs have been won by the side batting first and as many games by the side batting second on this ground.
    • 14 of the 25 series between the two sides have been won by India, although New Zealand might have the upper hand in ICC Tournaments.
    • India have won a total of 55 ODI matches versus the Kiwis’ 49.

    With New Zealand missing some key stars, we believe India will start on the front foot and open the series with a win as per our today match prediction.
