NZ vs IND Match Prediction & Analysis

Over the last few days, International Cricket has pampered its fans enough that they won't be amused by anything less than a super-over. Now that the T20I series between New Zealand and India is over, the focus now shifts towards the longer version of the game and we are likely to see plenty of changes in both the sides. This is the first time after that the two teams will be taking field after that classic encounter in the World Cup. Considering that both the teams suffered some major blows in the preceding T20I series, we are unlikely to see them both field their full-strength sides respectively. The first match of the series is to be played at Seddon Park, Hamilton on 5th February.

Team Previews

New Zealand

Coming off a series that was a lot closer than the score-line suggests, New Zealand suffered a massive blow going into the ODI series. Kane Williamson, who missed the last two matches of the T20I series, is ruled out of the first two matches of the ODI series following a shoulder injury he sustained in the T20s. Tom Latham will lead the side in his absence and Mark Chapman has been called in as his replacement.

New Zealand will be keen to get back to the longer version of the game. In recent times, the performance of Kiwis has been directly proportional to the length of format they play in. Since the Kiwis haven't played much Cricket after the Cricket World Cup 2019, their ODI unit hasn't been tested. On paper, they look pretty good and have the advantage of playing at home. However, beating India, with the kind of form they're in, will be a big challenge for the Black Caps.

India

Just like the Kiwis, India, too, would not have the luxury of fielding their full-strength side in the ODIs. With Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma both out of the team due to respective injuries, the reliance on their middle-order has grown exponentially. Mayank Agarwal has bee called in for Rohit's replacement and is likely to open the innings with KL Rahul.

Despite the injuries to their stalwarts, Indian batting unit looks solid, at least on paper. KL Rahul looked in terrific touch in the T20Is and with the likes of Virat Kohli in the middle, the Kiwi bowlers are likely to have a hard time bowling to India's top-order. Although Shreyas Iyer has shown great composure in recent matches, he is still a little inexperienced and might find it hard in alient conditions. India have a relatively unsettled middle-order and it remains to be seem if it can handle the pressure in crunch situations.

Overall, Indians look pretty settled despite the absence of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, thanks to their strong top-order, superb bench strength, and potent bowling attack. As was the case in the T20Is, beating them is going to take some effort, especially from depleted Kiwi side, who would be without Kane Williamson.

NZ vs IND Betting Tips

As we get closer to the World T20, the ODIs will carry less importance and will primarily act as a breeding ground for youngsters. India are providing their youngsters with ample chances and have lots of T20Is to play before the marquee event. New Zealand's loss in the T20I series, however, posed many questions to them and they do not have much time to figure out what went wrong and address the issues. Even though the Kiwis have the advantage of playing at home, Indians walk into the first match as firm favorites, primarily because of the form they are in and balance they have, at least on paper.
