NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction | 2nd Test | Team News

NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction

NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Preview: It is now four losses on the trot for the visitors on their tour to New Zealand, and the situation is getting worse. The two teams will now meet in the second and final Test of the series at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

The surface for the second Test is lush green which is definitely going to be a paradise for the seamers. With Neil Wagner back for the hosts, they would now be booming with a lot more confidence. However, with Kyle Jamieson doing really well in the opening Test, Kane Williamson has definitely got a selection dilemma up his sleeves.

As far as the visitors are concerned, their campaign has struck with two more injuries in the form of Prithvi Shaw and their premier seamer from the first Test Ishant Sharma. Both these players are doubtful for this Test and it would be interesting to see what sort of combination Captain Kohli will look forward to save the series.

The clash will take place at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, at 04:00 AM IST on 29th February.

Here is the Dream11 prediction and for NZ vs IND.
