India and New Zealand were first 2 sides to hit the ground after the T20I World Cup in a 3-match T20I series. Both teams rested a lot of regular players and brought in some new and young players to test their bench strength. India won the first 2 matches comfortably and will be looking to give chances to players who have not yet played in this match. They have a great chance to whitewash New Zealand in a second straight series. New Zealand will look to win the T20I series on a high with a victory before going into the Test matches.

India Preview

Skipper Rohit Sharma (55 runs) and KL Rahul (65 runs) almost killed the chase with their 117-run opening partnership with both of them scoring fifties. Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant have played few valuable cameos and we expect Ruturaj Gaikwad to play in this match resting KL Rahul.

Harshal Patel was superb on his debut night claiming 2 crucial wickets and the Man of the match award. Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel were brilliant in the middle overs with combined figures of 8-0-45-2. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar claimed a wicket each but were a touch expensive. Avesh khan and Yuzi Chahal will be expected to play in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Rohit Sharma – Rohit has scores of 48 & 55 in the two matches and have been crucial in the batting department. We expect him to play yet to crucial knock in this match too and help his team win.  

Harshal Patel – Harshal used his variations to great effect and bowled the crucial overs ending with figures of 4-0-25-2. We expect him to trouble the batters with his variations in this match too.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Axar Patel, Yuzi Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel

New Zealand Preview

Martin Guptill took on the Indian bowlers and scored 31 runs off just 15 balls to set the tone of their batting. Daryl Mitchell (31 runs), Mark Chapman (21 runs), and Glenn Philips (34 runs) carries on their good work in the middle overs to take their team to a good total of 153/6 in the 20 overs.

Tim Southee was the only bowler to give a tough fight last night with superb bowling figures of 4-0-16-3. Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, and Adam Milne were taken for a lot of runs and Ish Sodhi bowled only a couple of overs in the last game. Todd Astle may play ahead of Santner in this game.

Top players to bet on:

Martin Guptill – Guptill has scores of 70 & 31 in the first 2 matches at a good strike arte of 170+. We expect him play yet another attacking knock in this match and lead his team.

Tim Southee – Southee was the only wicket-taker in the last game and he claimed all 3 Indian wickets to fall. He has 4 wickets at an economy rate of 7 RPO in the 2 matches played so far.

Weather Conditions

Kolkata will have hot and humid weather with early 30 degrees on the match day. We expect no weather disturbances and dew might play a role in the match.  

Venue Details

Eden Gardens is one of the fast pitches in the Indian circuit and it will provide good assistance to the pacers especially. We will have a good balance between the bat and ball on this pitch.  We expect scores in the range of 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams winning the toss opted to chase in both matches and won both the matches. We expect the teams to continue the trend in this match too.

New Zealand has a strong batting line-up which is putting pressure on the Indian bowlers in the power play but they are struggling to score freely against the Indian spinners in middle overs. Indian players are hugely untested by the Kiwi bowlers in these sub-continental tracks and we expect them to continue their good showing in this match too. India might test their bench strength with new faces in this match and we expect them to continue their winning streak in this match too.

INDIA will win the match and the series 3-0
