IND vs NZ Dream11 Team Predictions and Predictions for Friday’s first T20I match between India and New Zealand: After facing a humiliating semi-final exit in the T20 World Cup, India’s team will aim to write a quick rebound as they all gear up to take on New Zealand in white-ball cricket. India’s tour of New Zealand will begin on Friday with a T20I encounter. The opening match of the series will be played at Sky Stadium in Wellington.
From the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup to losing the final of the World Test Championship, the Kiwis have emerged as foes of India in recent times. However, the management of the Indian team seems to be completely unfazed by the previous results. In a move to rest big names like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Team India bet on a young squad for the series against New Zealand.
The all-rounder Hardik Pandya will lead India in T20Is. Veteran batsman Shekhar Dhawan will take over the captaincy duties in the ODIs. Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant will be the vice-captain in both formats.
In the absence of Kohli and Rohit, the Indian batting will depend a lot on Suryakumar Yadav. The highest rated T20I batsman will have to show off his superior batting skills to break the New Zealand jinx and emerge victorious.
