NZ vs IND Today Match Prediction | Cricket match predictions 100 safe
India and New Zealand will face each in the 2nd ODI in Eden Park on Saturday. The Kiwis made a comeback in the series after getting whitewashed in the T20I series. New Zealand played amazingly well in 1st ODI match and easily chased down a target of 348 runs while batting second. However, the Auckland wicket is unlike the Hamilton wicket and India has a good record at Eden Park.
Men in Blue won both their T20 Internationals at this stadium in the recently concluded T20 series. However, toss plays a significant role in games played in New Zealand as the team chasing the total often gets an unfair advantage. The toss for the 2nd ODI is expected to pay a significant role in deciding who will win today match. India would also look for better performance in the second match. The batsmen posted a challenging total and India looked set for a victory at a time. However, the bowlers put a disappointing effort, and the team lost the game from a winning position.
A few changes are expected in the bowling department with Navdeep Saini and Yazuvendra Chahal a comeback in playing XI in place of Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav.

India Fantasy Predictions:
India has a strong batting, and even after a new opening pair, the batting looks formidable. The only concern in the tour has been the lack of big scores from the bat of Virat Kohli and deficiencies in fielding. The Kiwis made a comeback however on looking at the bigger picture it could be said that the other deficiency of the Blackcaps was covered by brilliant knocks from Tom Latham and Ross Taylor. Moreover, the Indian team has developed a habit of turning the tables when their backs are against the wall. India fantasy agrees with the win prediction and believes that India will win the match.
