IND vs NZL Dream11: As basketball continues to become a global game, we are caught in the frenzy of fantasy scenarios from different parts of the world. The FIBA Asia Cup and its current reach clearly signify the expansion of the game to a major audience and hey isn’t the populous state of India that is seeing an increased internet consumption, the perfect audience for this incredible game? And India will be in action here as they take on the New Zealand team.

Slowly but steadily Indian basketball scene is improving but it will take a lot of time before the national squad becomes competitive at the global level, trust me a long time is needed to catch up to the best squads. In their last game, India’s team lost to the Philippines squad 63-79, scoring 13 points in the last game. On the other hand, New Zealand has been miles ahead of the Indian set-up and is likely to be so for the coming years as even their B-team can be tough to beat for the Indian men. Can the Indians inch closer this time?

FIBA Asia Cup Projections, Stats & Analysis

A huge difference between talent level

To begin with, the New Zealand talent comes from the New Zealand Basketball league, which is mixed with aspirants who had played in American college basketball but yes the majority of them hail from the nation of New Zealand, which is full of taller and more athletic players than the Indian set-up. They are not even fielding their first-choice team and that can overwhelm the Indian team too. The Indian squad has some veterans like Vishesh Briguvanshi, one of the most renowned players in the nation itself. Young Indian Aryan who is 7’2″ has earned some experience in NBA Academy, how will it help him?
