nz vs ind Match Prediction & Analysis

The Indian team has been all over the Kiwis in the T20I series so far winning both their matches played in Auckland. The Men in blue will clinch the series with a win in this match and test their bench strength in the remaining two matches. If it was the batsmen in the first match, bowlers came to fore in the second match for the Indian team.

New Zealand has never suffered a string of losses off late and will need to bring out their best performance to get out of the rut. Kiwis cannot afford any further slip up as it may well cause them to lose the series 0-3.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand batsmen struggled to score freely in the used Auckland pitch ending up with below par 132 runs on board. Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert scored identical scores of 33 runs at different ends of the innings.

Skipper Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor were off-color contributing with just 32 runs off 44 balls with no boundaries. Tim Southee gave hopes of the team with two quick wickets in the powerplay.


Mitchell Santner bowled an economical spell but was not enough to trouble Indian batsmen. Hamish Bennett and Blair Tickner gave away too many runs easily and New Zealand will look to replace either one of them in this match.

Key Players:

Martin Guptill – Guptill made two quickfire 30+ cameos in both matches at a strike rate of 150+ in the powerplay. He will look to put on a big score in this match to help his team win a must win game.

Tim Southee – Southee took the prized scalps of Kohli and Rohit Sharma inside 5 overs to give a glimmer of hope for his team. He came back strongly after a disastrous first match.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tim Seifert (wk), Colin de Grandhomme, Daryl Mitchell/Scott Kuggleijn, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett

India Preview

India team came up with a clinical performance to beat New Zealand by 7 wickets. India will be delighted after the impressive showing of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer in both the matches. Their lower order is untested so far this series and Rohit Sharma is due for a big score in the T20Is off late.


Indian bowlers utilized the used track and strangled the Kiwi batsmen with disciplined bowling effort. Jasprit Bumrah was once again on the mark and New Zealand was not able to score against him. Ravi Jadeja was the star performer with figures of 4-0-18-2 in the middle overs. Shivam Dube and Shardul Thakur chipped in with a wicket each ion the last match.

Key Players:

KL Rahul – 91, 45. 53, 56, 57* These are Rahul`s scores in the last 5 T20I matches and he is in unbelievable form off late and we can expect him to continue his consistent run in this match too.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah is proving to be the difference between the two sides in the bowling front easily. He builds the scoring pressure from one end and batsmen tare succumbing to it.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini/Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Weather Conditions

Venue Details

Seddon Park is one of the good batting conditions with a flat pitch. Bowlers may get some spongy bounce if the track wears out. Last time these two teams met here both scored over 200+ runs.

Toss: To Bowl

India chased down the target in both the matches and both captains will look to chase in this match.

NZ vs IND Winning Prediction

The Indian team has better experienced T20 players in the bowling department when compared to New Zealand. India`s top four batsmen barring Rohit Sharma has done the bulk of run-scoring with lower-order batsmen getting very few deliveries to face.

New Zealand batsmen after a good show in the first match failed miserably in the second match.

We expect Indian team to win this match and series!
