NZ vs IND | 1st ODI

NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction: After humiliating the Blackcaps in the 5-match T20I series, the caravan of team India will move into the 3-match ODI series which gets underway tomorrow, i.e. 5th February at the Seddon Park in Hamilton.

Both teams have undergone many transitions in the ODI setup, some were forcefull and some were obvious. The Blackcaps will be without the services of their skipper Kane Williamson who is out of the first two games due to a shoulder injury.

On the other hand, the visitors have received a big blow in the form of Rohit Sharma who is ruled out of both Tests and ODIs due to a calf injury. He sustained this injury in the final T20I which took place in Mount Maunganui.

With both teams dented with injuries, it would be interesting to see what combinations the two teams will come up in the first game.

The clash will take place at the Seddon Park, Hamilton, at 07:30 AM IST.

Here is the Dream11 prediction for NZ vs IND.
