IND vs NZ Today Match Prediction: India will be beginning their new chapter in their cricket history under Rahul Dravid as the head coach after an unbelievably successful stint by Ravi Shastri whose tenure got ended right after the WT20 in UAE where India were knocked out in the group stages.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has made himself unavailable for the T20I series to concentrate for the test series that follows right after the T20I series. Tim Southee will be captaining the Kiwi side in the absence of Kane Williamson. NZ might look to rotate the bowlers with the test series in touching distance.

Both the teams are yet to play a game on this venue
New Zealand decided to open with Daryl Mitchell for the first time in WT20 as the batting all rounder hasn’t even opened at the first class level but it did come off beautifully as Daryl Mitchell at the top of the order became a massive pillar for the Kiwis in the WT20 campaign.
India have a happy headache as they have loads of options with respect to their middle order batters and one has the wait and see whom they will prefer out of the 2 all rounders in their squad between Harshal Patel and Venkatesh Iyer.
In IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, the odds are in favor of India although New Zealand just defeated India and knocked them out of WT20. New Zealand are a pretty mediocre T20I side and they won the game against India only after winning the toss. On paper, Jasorit Bumrah less Indian side is head and shoulders above the New Zealand side. One of the key strengths of New Zealand is that they are lucky with the toss and with dew expected to play a part again, game could well be decided at the toss.
