IND vs NZ - New Zealand tour of India
India to win the game.
New Zealand lost their previous T20I bi-lateral series to India 5-0, but won their T20I world cup match. In T20Is at home, India is on a four-match winning streak. Recently, New Zealand has won one and lost three T20I series against foreign teams, including a series loss to India.

Rohit Sharma took over as India's T20 captain and finished the World Cup on a high note, scoring 74, 30, and 56 runs. In this match, he is our pick for India's highest run-scorer. Harshal Patel took the most wickets in this year's IPL and is deserving of a chance to play for India in this match. We think he'll be their best wicket-taker against New Zealand.
Martin Guptill scored New Zealand's best score in the T20 World Cup and is a strong bet to be New Zealand's leading run-scorer against India. Tim Southee was outstanding with the ball at the World Cup and will lead the attack in the absence of Trent Boult. Southee is our pick for New Zealand's leading wicket-taker in this match. Rohit Sharma is expected to be the key man in his maiden game as a full-time skipper, having previously scored four IT20 hundreds. We think he'll win the Player of the Match award.
The ICC T20I World Cup is officially done, with New Zealand finishing second and India being eliminated in the Super-12 rounds. In this T20I series, both teams will be aiming for a far-fetched objective. New Zealand enters this match just two days after winning the World Cup and will be hoping to rest some of their top players. For this T20I series, India has already rested Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Shardul Thakur. With the next world cup in Australia only 11 months away, we expect the new arriving players to give it their all and establish a place in the starting XI.
teams preview - ind vs nz
Rohit Sharma will start the batting with KL Rahul, his destructive deputy. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan are anticipated to compete for the vacant No. 3 spot, with the former projected to win. Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Venkatesh Iyer might be used in the middle order. For India's speed assault, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar will be supported by youthful pacers Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, and Mohammed Siraj. The spinners in the team are Ravi Ashwin, Yuzi Chahal, and Axar Patel, all of whom have extensive T20I experience.
In this T20I series, Kane Williamson will captain the side, and with Guptill's recent dismal form, we anticipate Daryl Mitchell to be joined by Mark Chapman. With Devon Conway out due to a last-minute injury, Glenn Philips, James Neesham, and Tim Seifert will play a key role in the middle order. Unless tearaway speedster Lockie Ferguson is deemed fit for the contest, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, and Trent Boult are anticipated to lead the pace assault. With Ish Sodhi anticipated to be rested for this encounter, Todd Astle might receive a shot in the starting XI. If Tim Southee is rested and his workload problems are addressed, Kyle Jamieson may be given a shot.

In this match, we're going to back the underdog, New Zealand. India is a young team that is going through a lot of changes. A new captain, new coaching staff, an indecisive batting order, and bowlers who have never played international cricket. Yes, the circumstances are favorable to them, but we do not believe that this is sufficient to justify the odds. New Zealand is the favorite to win. Read more at Online Cricket Betting.
New Zealand has recently performed admirably in the T20I World Cup, but they may be caught off guard by the challenging schedule in their first encounter. In their roster, they have a solid combination of pace and spin bowling options. India is a formidable force, particularly on their own turf, and they have never lost a series with their entire squad in the previous 2-3 years, regardless of the conditions. They may be without a few important players, but they have competent replacements in the playing XI. This match is expected to be won by India. Read more at TheTopBookies.
