NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction

NZ vs IND Dream11: After the T20 and ODI series, it is time to play cricket in all whites as India will take on New Zealand in the first test starting on Friday. India started the New Zealand tour with a bang by whitewashing the Kiwis 5-0 in the T20I series. However, the Kiwis bounced back in style by whitewashing India 3-0 in the ODI series. It is time to face the music of red cherry as the number 1 test side will try to improve their dismal record in New Zealand.
