India vs New Zealand, 1st T20I – Prediction

India vs New Zealand, 1st T20I – Prediction

Team India completely whitewashed the visitors in the ODI and now both teams are ready to meet face-to-face in the T20 format. IND vs NZ 1st T20 will take place on 27th January at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi.

Team India will be confident enough to repeat similar results as the ODI format but New Zealand will be all prepared to face any kind of challenge posed by Men in Blue. When it comes to odds – top bookmakers in India have kept India as favourite to win this series as well.

The Indian squad displayed brilliance in batting in the ODI format. The team looked like a complete set of players who are on the field to win matches and overcome any kind of challenge on the ground.

New Zealand will be low on confidence after their massive loss in the ODI format. However, by now the Kiwis are aware of the playing conditions of India and will be well prepared for the T20 series.

NZ - Team News

After defeating Pakistan on the Pakistani pitches, New Zealand was confident enough to face team India but things have not gone as planned. Finn Allen and Devon Conway will be expected to do a better job in the T20 format after their disappointing innings in the ODI format. Tim Southee and Trent Boult are not available to be part of the T20 series and hence Lockie Ferguson will be under pressure to do their job.
