IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction 1st TEST India vs New Zealand Playing 11, Stats, Pitch Report, Live Score

IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the first test between India and New Zealand. The last time these both sides met was in the WTC finals where New Zealand were crowned the champions. Coming to this series it will kickstart the new cycle of WTC for New Zealand while India have already started their journey with the uncompleted test series in England. The last time New Zealand toured India in 2016 and 2012 they were whitewashed and will be hoping to turn the tables this time around. India will be without their captain Kohli and some key players like Rohit, Rahul, Pant and Bumrah but the hosts are still a very formidable unit in their backyard. This promises to be a riveting test series.

Fixture: 1st TEST, India vs New Zealand

Competition: 2 – match TEST series

Date: 25 November

Time: 9:30am

Team Form Guide:

IND(recent first): W L W D L

NZ(recent first): W W D W W

Head-to-head: India – 21, New Zealand– 13

In India: India – 16, New Zealand– 2, Draw – 16

Ground: Green Park, Kanpur

Pitch Report

Green Park in Kanpur traditionally favors the spinners just like most cricket stadiums in India. Expect the pitch to behave the same with very little assistance for the pacers. Batting might be challenging on days 4 and 5 with the cracks opening up, teams winning the toss will look to bat first.
