Share

IND vs NZ Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Two teams who lost the first match to Pakistan in the Super 12 of the T20 World Cup will face off against each other to keep their chances alive in the tournament. India and New Zealand have zero wins so far and desperately need a win today to make their chances to make it to the semi’s even higher.

IND vs NZ T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

India

  • Pakistan thrashed India by 10 wickets in the previous match.
  • Virat Kohli came back to form and scored a well-made century against Pakistan.
  • KL Rahul was in fine form in both the warmups.

New Zealand

  • New Zealand lost the last match to Pakistan by 5 wickets.
  • Ish Sodi picked up 2 wickets in the last match.
  • None of the batsmen scored above 30 in the previous match.

IND vs NZ Today Match Prediction

Both teams were taken to the cleaners in the last match by Pakistan. Both showed below-par performance with both bat and ball. But everyone knows how talented India and New Zealand are. Both will surely bounce back in the coming days. But who will bounce back first? That’s the question that needs to be answered. Looking at the squad and the personals at hand, India is the strong favourites. They have what it takes to defeat New Zealand on any day with this squad. But the fact remains that India has never won against the Kiwis in ICC tournaments since 2003. Can men in blue break the jinx? Let’s find out.

IND vs NZ Winning Chances

In the current scenario, India is the favourites by a slight margin. They are highly skilled in all departments of the game. If their bowlers also return back to form, then they are an unstoppable side. That being said, we cannot count out New Zealand, they have defeated India many times in ICC games before. Expect a fighting performance from New Zealand, especially from their bowling unit but bet in favour of India for this match. Even the prominent betting sites are also predicting an India win.

Betway- NZ- 1.33, IND- 1.25
