IND vs NZ Today Match Prediction: India are leading the series after beating the visitors in the first game by 5 wickets. They should have won the game quite comprehensively but New Zealand pulled back things brilliantly and the blunder to play Shreyas Iyer out of position almost bit them hard.
In T20s, a team cannot play a batter out of their natural position and things will get worse if the batter doesn’t have the necessary skillset to get accustomed to that batting position which is not his natural position or a position which he has not got used to. One can only hope that India will learn from their mistakes going forward.

IND- 2 wins in 2 games
NZ- Yet to play a game on this venue
New Zealand batted very well and were cruising to a healthy total of 190 batting first in the first game but some brilliance by Ravichandran Ashwin changed the complexion of the game big time. He was magnificent and his 2 wickets over was the major turning point. Martin Guptill was brilliant with the bat and is looking like a much improved player with respect to spin and he is targeting the right bowlers at the right time to construct his innings.
Ish Sodhi might be replacing Todd Astle after the latter bowled absolute filth in the first game where he gave 34 runs in 3 games.
In IND vs NZ dream11 prediction, the odds are strongly in favor of India but the reality will be the team winning the toss will start as favorites as dew might be playing a huge part for one more time in this game.
India should play Avesh Khan in place of Deepak Chahar but with Mohammad Siraj copping a blow towards the end of first game, Deepak Chahar might retain his place with Avesh Khan replacing Mohammad Siraj. India will be looking to knock out Martin Guptill early in the innings to make things difficult for NZ in India vs New Zealand Dream11 Prediction today.
