IN-A vs NZ-A Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Mount Maunganui, November 16 at 03:30 AM IST
New Zealand A and India A will lock horns in 1st unofficial Test of the three-match series at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui.
Earlier, India A mentor Rahul Dravid, in a BCCI interview, revealed the objective of the A tour to New Zealand. He said it is an opportunity for the boys to prepare for the forthcoming Australia series. Dravid admitted that India have been a struggling team on overseas tours for quite some time and they are working on this issue. He explained that the BCCI has increased the number of unofficial Tests matches to increase the number of red-ball fixtures that the boys can get to experience.
New Zealand A, on the other hand, come into the series after an ordinary tour of United Arab Emirates. However, they were able to draw both the unofficial Tests in tricky conditions. With the side’s make-up remaining the same, New Zealand A would want to carry on the good work and put the visitors under pressure.
Rohit Sharma has been withdrawn from India A squad.
Ravikumar Samarth will join India A squad for the second unofficial Test.

Rachin Ravindra and Will Young played good hands in the recently concluded series against Pakistan A.
Scott Kuggeleijn was the pick of the bowlers in the UAE series, claiming six wickets in two outings. Kyle Jamieson and Blair Tickner were others who were among the wickets for New Zealand A.
From India A, the best bets would be Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw since Murali Vijay, Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal are fighting for two spots.
Parthiv Patel and Mohammad Siraj are among others who are sure starters for the Indian side.
Fantasy tip: Any two of Murali Vijay, Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal will get to play. H Vihari is slightly risky.
