India have begun their New Zealand tour on a high. They have won the series by winning three constitutive T20 international matches out of five. This is India’s first-ever T20 series win in New Zealand. 

In this series, India have shown that they are not relying only on Virat Kohli, as players like KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are also contributing to the success of their team. Their last cricket game was quite intense and exciting as it led to a super over. India kept their cool and first restricted New Zealand to their total of 179 runs and then chased the super over total set by New Zealand on the last ball. 

After the cricket series win, Virat Kohli talked about giving chances to other players in the remaining games. Hence, our prediction is of a couple of changes to the playing eleven for the next game. 

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • RG Sharma
  • KL Rahul
  • Shivam Dube
  • Virat Kohli
  • SS Iyer
  • Shardul Thakur
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Manish Pandey
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Mohammad Shami
  • Navdeep Saini

New Zealand

New Zealand have  not been good in the T20 cricket series. They have lost three games of cricket in a row and have now lost the series at home. 

In their last cricket game, New Zealand tried their best to win and keep the series alive. Chasing the score of 180 runs set by India, Kane Williamson, the skipper, played brilliant innings of 95 runs in 48 balls but that was not enough. His contribution took the match to super over, but Tim Southee could not defend the total of 17 runs and they lost the game. 

Our prediction is of a couple of changes to their playing eleven for the next cricket game. 

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

  • MJ Guptill
  • Colin Munro
  • Mitch Santner
  • Kane Williamson
  • Daryl Mitchell 
  • LRPL Taylor
  • TL Seifert
  • Tim Southee
  • IS Sodhi
  • Hamish Bennett
  • SC Kuggeleijn

Expert Prediction: IND vs NZ

India continued their good form in this cricket series as they took the lead of 3-0 margin in the five-match T20 series. They have won their first-ever international T20 series in New Zealand. 

Although they have been the superior side in this series, India would consider themselves slightly lucky after the third T20 cricket game. After setting the target of 179 runs after 20 overs, India could not quite control New Zealand’s innings until the last four balls of the innings. Kane Williamson almost took New Zealand home through his knock of 95 runs but fell in the last over.

After that Mohammad Shami bowling, the last over kept his composure and managed to restrict New Zealand’s batsmen. In the end, the scores were level and the super over had to take place. New Zealand once again played well and scored 17 runs off Jasprit Bumrah’s over. It looked like a tough score for India to chase especially when ten runs were required off two balls. Rohit Sharma had other ideas and he took India home. 

New Zealand were left heartbroken after the super over but from the preparation for the upcoming World T20 point of view, they had their best game of the series. India, on the other hand, would now be relaxed and would like to give chances to other players in the series. 

For now, looking at the current form, our prediction is of India’s win in the fourth T20 as well.
