Cricket Match Information:

The India vs New Zealand three-match ODI cricket series will begin at Hamilton on Wednesday. India have won the T20 cricket series against New Zealand by a 5-0 margin and are pumped up for the upcoming series. It was India’s first T20 cricket series win in New Zealand. New Zealand, on the other hand, would be currently sulking after losing the T20 series at home. Our prediction expert reckons New Zealand are going to find it hard to stop rampant India yet again.

India will begin the ODI cricket series as favourites. They have won the T20 series by 5-0 and will carry their momentum forward in the first ODI cricket game as well. 

India are once again going to be led by Virat Kohli. There has been one big blow to India in the form of Rohit Sharma, who has been ruled out of the ODI and Test series. With Rohit out, Prithvi Shaw is all set to be his replacement.

So far on this tour, India have shown that they are not relying only on Virat Kohli to perform, as players like KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey have also stood up and made themselves count. 

Our prediction is of the inclusion of Prithvi Shaw in place of injured Rohit Sharma in the playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • KL Rahul
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Virat Kohli
  • SS Iyer
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Jasprit Bumrah 
  • Manish Pandey
  • Mohammad Shami
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Navdeep Saini
  • Ravindra Jadeja

New Zealand

New Zealand were not good in the T20 cricket series. They lost five consecutive games of cricket and conceded the series at home. They now have a chance to get back to winning ways in the ODI format of the game.

Despite losing the T20 series, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that New Zealand cricket is in the safe hands of skipper Kane Williamson. Bad news for New Zealand is that he has been ruled out of the first two ODIs and Tom Latham is expected to lead the side in his absence. With Colin Munro not in the squad, Henry Nicholls is set to open with Martin Guptill.

Skipper Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the first two ODIs hence, our prediction is he will be replaced by Mark Chapman in the first game.

Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:

  • MJ Guptill
  • Henry Nicholls
  • Tom Latham
  • James Neesham
  • LRPL Taylor
  • Colin de Grandhomme
  • Mitch Santner
  • Mark Chapman
  • IS Sodhi
  • Hamish Bennett
  • SC Kuggeleijn

Expert Prediction: IND vs NZ

Indian cricket continues to march ahead under the leadership of Virat Kohli. Having clean-swept New Zealand in the recently concluded T20 cricket series, they now set their eyes on the ODI format. 

New Zealand now also have the chance to stop their losing streak. Their losing streak began against Australia in Australia, where they lost consecutive test matches. They would now like to put an end to it in the ODI cricket series.

Although the ODI is not on the radar of any team right now, keeping in mind the upcoming T20 World Cup, still it is important to note that the next four-year cycle has begun for teams to prepare for the 50-over World Cup. 

India showed great temperament and skills to win the series against Australia after being 1-0 down in the three-match series. India won that series but also found a gem in KL Rahul. They landed on to a perfect combination since Rahul took on the wicket-keeping responsibility. That trend has continued even on this tour. 

As of now, India are looking a lot more confident, balanced and hungry hence, our prediction is of an Indian victory.
