New Zealand played the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 just three days before it is going to play this match in India. That is the kind of punishing schedule that players today have to live with and why they often suffer from burnout. New Zealand is coming to India with the same squad that reached the final while India has made some changes to its squad as it tries to address some of the shortcomings that were exposed in the World Cup.
Playing against India in India is never easy and that is why India goes into this match as the clear favorite, WHether that is justified in the betting odds is something that we will look into right now!
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs New Zealand 1st T20 International 2021. The match is going to be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on the 17th of November 2021.
India is going to start a new chapter in its T20 International journey with this series. Rohit Sharma is the new captain and Virat Kohli is going to be missing the entire series. Also, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, and Varun Chakravarthy have been dropped.
India needs to build its team for the next T20 World Cup that is less than a year away. Rahul and Rohit will open the batting but maybe Ruturaj Gaikwad could get a chance as well. Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, and Venkatesh Iyer are probably going to be in the middle-order.
From a betting point of view, you want to stick to the openers to make the biggest contributions in this match. That means choosing one of either KL Rahul or Rohit Sharma for the Top Batsman India betting market. One of the things that stood out was a lack of intent by the Indian batsmen in the early matches, including against New Zealand, and so the batsmen may go for more big hits this time.
The Total Sixes and Total Fours betting markets that you should definitely look for in this match.
Yuzvendra Chahal is back in the fold and he is the bowler we are picking for the Top Bowler betting market. He bowls slowly and goes for wickets but can also go for some runs in a few matches. His good form in the IPL could translate to the international matches as well.
Harshal Patel could not stop taking wickets with his slower deliveries in the IPL. Will that translate to the international circuit? We are not sure but he may be a good pick to bet on 'To Pick 2+ wickets' betting market.
Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, SA Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj.
New Zealand's team performed very well in the recently concluded T20 World Cup and it could quite easily continue that success against India in this series as well. No replacement has been named for Devon Conway and so we can expect more or less the same playing eleven that played the final. That means Martin Guptill, Daryll Mitchell, and Kane Williamson will be required to score the bulk of the runs once more.
There does seem to be a lack of depth in the batting lineup that could be exposed if the pitch is bowler-friendly. Glenn Phillips and Kane Williamson are the two batsmen that we are backing to score runs in this match. We think you will get some good odds on the Total runs Over/Under betting market for both the batsmen.
You can bet on the 'Over' as the Jaipur batting surface is generally quite good and should favor the batsmen that are comfortable facing spin.
Mitch Santner and Ish Sodhi have a great record against Indian batsmen. In fact, Sodhi has taken the most international wickets against the Indian batsmen out of all bowlers, a staggering statistic. Trent Boult, Adam Milne, and Tim Southee are going to extract any help that is on offer in this match as well.
New Zealand is a settled team with players that know their roles. The only thing against it is going to be exhaustion and burnout.
Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, GD Phillips, Tim Seifert, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, TG Southee, TD Astle, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.
The toss could be quite important in this match. There is some dew that is expected in Jaipur during this match and so the team that chases could have a big advantage.

The pitch at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium is generally very good for batting. The outfield is small and there are a lot of big hits on offer. The pitch could be a bit better to bat on as the match goes on and the dew comes into play. Considering all of this, we think something around 180 should be considered as par for the venue.

We are going to bet on the underdog, New Zealand, in this match. India is not a settled team and is going through some big changes. A new captain, new coaching staff, a batting lineup that is unsettled, and bowlers that are untested in international cricket. Yes, the conditions are in their favor but we don't think that is enough to justify the odds.
Bet on New Zealand to win.
This is our absolute favorite bet for this match. The odds are a bit low but the chances of you winning this are very high. The surface in Jaipur should be batting friendly with plenty of runs. Go big if you can to maximize your returns.
