IND vs NZ Prediction


This is the second match of Cricket World Cup 2019. It will be played between India and New Zealand, at Westpac Stadium. It will be a crucial match for both teams as they are playing this tournament after a long time. Given their recent performances in One Day Internationals (ODIs), it can be said that they both have the potential to win this match comfortably.

IND vs NZ Prediction

The New Zealand cricket team will win the ODI series against India by 3-2.

The New Zealand cricket team will win the T20I series against India by 2-1.

In Tests, if asked to make a prediction, I would say that India won't lose more than one match out of five. The Kiwis have been playing good cricket over past few years and have some very talented players in their ranks such as Guptill and Kane Williamson who are both capable of scoring big runs at crucial times during an innings - something which we saw during this year's World Cup where they managed to reach semi-finals before losing out narrowly to eventual champions Australia . The only problem is that they don't have many big hitters in their side so it's going to be tough for them if any batsman fails early on during an innings because then it becomes difficult for other players too build partnerships like they did before so much pressure falls onto those who bat closer towards end overs (final 6 balls) which can lead into mishaps like dropped catches etc., especially when someone like Kohli comes down with intent like he always does! So overall I'll say 1-0 or even 2-0 just because these two sides know each other well!

IND vs NZ Series XI

The 12th match of the IND vs NZ series will be a Toss prediction.

New Zealand has recently won over Australia in the first two ODIs. In fact, they have also won comfortably. This is why they are ranked as the number 1 team in ODI rankings with 8 points from their wins against Australia and India. On the other hand, India has been defeated by New Zealand’s victory margin of 4-1 and now stands at number 2 with 7 points under its name.

IND vs NZ Series Likely Playing XI

The Indian team is likely to play with a strong batting lineup. They might need to score a big total on the board, as they have struggled in their last few ODI matches. The hosts have also been struggling in their previous games, losing all four matches against Australia and New Zealand respectively. However, they will be hoping to make a comeback into the series when they face India tomorrow.

The playing XI for both the teams is given below:

IND Squad for Series

  • Virat Kohli

  • Rohit Sharma

  • KL Rahul

  • Shikhar Dhawan

  • MS Dhoni

  • Ajinkya Rahane

  • Kedar Jadhav (INJ)

  • Hardik Pandya (INJ)

NZ Squad for Series

NZ Squad for Series XI:

  • Brendon McCullum (Captain)

  • Martin Guptill (Vice-Captain)

  • Kane Williamson

  • Ross Taylor

  • Corey Anderson

  • Luke Ronchi/BJ Watling (Wicketkeeper) or Tom Latham/Colin Munro as a WK replacement in case of injury.

Here is our expert prediction for the key match of the series.

The key match of the series is the first one. New Zealand won the toss and chose to bat.

New Zealand’s batting line-up is very strong with Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor and Tom Latham at top of their game. However, this time they will be missing their skipper Kane Williamson as he was not selected for this series due to injury while Ross Taylor has also been struggling with knee problem which might hamper his performance in this match but still he remains an important player in NZ team especially when it comes to captaincy skills.

Key Players: Martin Guptill (Batting), Trent Boult (Bowling)
