NZ vs IND Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 27, 2022
New Zealand outplayed India in the first ODI. India's batting was impressive in parts but a bit too conservative in the end. Also, the bowling attack just did not have the teeth needed to put New Zealand under enough pressure. Kane Williamson and his men were barely forced out of their comfort zone as they registered their 13th straight victory at home.
Now, it will be interesting to see if India can fight back and maybe alter some of its strategies.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for New Zealand vs India 2nd ODI 2022. The match will be played at Seddon Park, Hamilton on the 27th of November 2022.
NZ vs IND Team Previews
New Zealand won the first match without ever really needing to stretch itself. Despite that, we don't think they played very well. New Zealand gave up a 100-run opening partnership while bowling and then lost three wickets before reaching 100 during its chase.
At no point did we see New Zealand dominate the Indian bowling except for the final 10 overs of their chase. So what does this tell us?
It tells us that New Zealand has a lot more in store. At its best, New Zealand should be able to make things really difficult for the inexperienced Indian bowling attack. Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, and Tom Latham are the players to watch out for once more. At the same time, bowlers like Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry are bound to get just rewards for their efforts sooner than later.
Also, the New Zealand batting lineup looked completely at ease against the Indian bowling lineup. Will that change instantly in the next match? Unlikely. This is why New Zealand is the favorite to win and we think that is well-deserved.

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson.
India would have been disappointed with its approach in the previous match. 300 is no longer a big score in ODI cricket and especially not at Eden Park. Shubman Gill and Shikhar Dhawan played far too conservatively while Rishab Pant in the middle order was unable to get going either.
Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar rescued the inning to an extent while the early loss of Suryakumar Yadav was a massive blow. What cricket logic was used to bat Pant over SKY in current form is something we fail to understand.
India's batting is strong but is not scoring the extra 25-30 runs needed to cushion its bowling. That is a big disadvantage.
Also, its bowling attack is perhaps the weakest it has been in a long time. Arshdeep Singh is effective as long as swing is available, Umran Malik made his debut in the previous match, Washington Sundar is inexperienced, and Yuzvendra Chahal bowled the worst we have seen him bowl in a long time.
If India has to compete, it will need to bat aggressively enough to end up with a score that is above-par and its spinners will need to bowl a lot better.
India Playing 11
Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, YS Chahal.

Pitch and Conditions
There is a lot of rain forecast in Hamilton at the moment. We could have delays, a reduction in overs, or even a complete washout if luck is not on our side. The pitch at Seddon Park is generally fast, bouncy, and excellent for batting. The outfield is also large enough to allow the bowlers a fair chance in the game.
300-320 should be seen as par for the venue once more.
NZ vs IND Betting Tips
We are going to back New Zealand in this match. We don't think they are a significantly better batting lineup than India, however, New Zealand's bowling attack is much stronger than India's. The lack of quality wicket-taking options in the Indian team could cost it heavily.
Bet on New Zealand to win.
