NZ vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction: With Team India sealing the five-match T20I series in the enthralling super over the encounter at Seddon Park, the Men in Blue will now be looking to make changes in order to give opportunities to those missing out. New Zealand on the other end, will be playing for pride and should be kicking themselves for not being able to get the win in spite of the heroics of their skipper Kane Williamson.
Date- Friday, January 31
Time- 12:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Wellington Regional Stadium
Martin Guptill and Colin Munro should be opening the batting attack for the Kiwis. The skipper, Kane Williamson should be coming at number three, while Ross Taylor and Tim Seifert would ideally occupy the middle order. Tom Bruce can be given the nod in this game, while Southee, Bennett, Kuggeleign and Santner will be the wicket-taking prospects.
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are the solid front three for the Indians. Shreyas Iyer should be persisted at number four, while Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson can be given a spot in place of Shivam Dube. Washington Sundar could also be given an opportunity while Ravi Jadeja gets a break. Fast bowler Navdeep Saini is likely to be in the elven in place of Shardul Thakur. Kuldeep Yadav could replace his partner Yuzvendar Chahal.
