India Fantasy Predictions:
Both teams are expected to make a few changes for the final match of the series. The changes in the Kiwis team would be more experimental than the Indian side that is expected to bring Manish Pandey in place of Jadhav. Manish Pandey is in the form of his life and should strengthen the side. Indian team would try to avoid the embarrassment of a whitewash and would be more desperate for a victory. Therefore, India fantasy agrees with the win prediction and believes India should win the game.
