    IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: India’s performance under Rahul Dravid has been up for much debate. There have been constant changes to the leaderhsip role, let alone the squads and playing XIs. But if they manage to win the coveted World Cup trophy on home soil this year, all will be forgiven. The Men in Blue have already completed a routine 2-0 ODI series win against New Zealand and the action now moves to a 3 match IND vs NZ T20I series.

    Ranchi Pitch Report

    History suggests a fairly low scoring encounter could be on the cards. The stadium at Ranchi is also huge and offers great spin and grip for the slow bowlers. The average firts innings score here is 155. The side winning the toss might look to chase.

    Team Form Guide:

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


    1. Prithvi Shaw
    2. Shubman Gill
    3. Rahul Tripathi
    4. Ishan Kishan (WK)
    5. Suryakumar Yadav
    6. Hardik Pandya
    7. Washington Sundar
    8. Shivam Mavi
    9. Yuzvendra Chahal
    10. Arshdeep Singh
    11. Umran Malik

    • Shubman Gill is in the form of his life; he should open the innings with Prithvi Shaw who has been posting astronomical numbers in domestic cricket. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been rested for the series.
    • Ruturaj Gaikwad should be waiting in the wings for the first game. Ishan Kishan should start ahead of Jitesh Sharma. But in our opinion, he will slot in in the middle order. Skipper Pandya and Washington Sundar provide balance to the team.
    • Shivam Mavi could partner Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik in the pace department. Siraj and Shami have also been given a break for this series. Mukesh Kumar is the reserve pacer in the side.

    Here are the best fantasy cricket picks for the match from India:

    Suryakumar Yadav Stats in T20Is

    Without a doubt the best T20I batsman in the world right now. Pick him and enjoy the ride as he smashes bowlers around the park.

    Innings Runs Average Strike Rate Recent Form in ODIs
    43 1578 46.6 181.2 111* , 7, 13, 51, 112*

    Yuzvendra Chahal Stats in T20Is

    Chahal is our pick on this slowish wicket. The ground favours spinners and we back Chahal to do some damage here.

    innings Wickets Economy Rate Average Last 3 T20Is
    73 90 8.18 24.91 0/26. 1/30, 2/30


    1. Finn Allen
    2. Devon Conway
    3. Mark Chapman
    4. Dane Cleaver
    5. Daryl Mitchell
    6. Glenn Phillips
    7. Michael Bracewell
    8. Mitchell Santner
    9. Ish Sodhi
    10. Ben Lister
    11. Lockie Ferguson

    • The makeup of the Kiwi team will remain similar to ODIs.
    • Mark Chapman should start ahead of Henry Nicholls in the shortest format. Ish Sodhi should be finally back in the side as the ground offers something for the spinners.
    • We feel Ben Lister could make his debut in this game and play alongside Lockie Ferguson.

    Here are the best fantasy cricket picks for the match from New Zealand:

    Finn Allen Stats in T20Is

    Allen is one of the most destructive batsmen going around and will look to unleash his fearless cricket in the 20-over game. Look at his numbers:

    Innings Runs Best Bat Avg SR
    25 567 102 22.5 163.2

    Daryl Mitchell Stats in T20Is

    Mitchell is an ever present in the Kiwi side and can contribute with both bat and ball on this wicket. Here are his T20I stats:

    Innings Runs Best Bat Avg SR
    39 786 72* 29.2 139.1

    Who will win India vs New Zealand Today match?

    • It is even stevens between India and New Zealand as both teams have won equal (9) number of matches against each other.
    • India won the last T20I series versus the Blackcaps held in New Zealand although two games were washed out.
    • India have won four series as opposed to New Zealand’s three series wins.
