IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction 1st T20I India vs New Zealand

Hits: 0

IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the first T20I between India and New Zealand. India will begin their campaign under new captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid. They have rested a few of their all-format players and have rewarded some of the IPL stars. After a disappointing T20 WC where they did not reach the knockouts the Men in Blue look to find a formula to crack T20s and potentially have a look at what some players can offer going forward. New Zealand on the other hand finds themselves in a bilateral series only 2 days after their heartbreak in the final of the T20 WC. They had a great tournament which included beating a few of the pre-tournament favorites like England and India. They will be without their skipper Williamson for this series and the rest of the squad is pretty much the same. Southee will be leading the Blackcaps and both teams would be looking to put up an entertaining match.

Pitch Report

Jaipur is yet to host a T20I, albeit the venue has hosted plenty of the matches in the IPL and the track is excellent for batting. The boundaries are bigger but the outfield is lightning quick and we can see some big scores. Both captains will prefer chasing at this venue if they win the toss.
