India and New Zealand will play in the 1st T20I match of the New Zealand tour of India 2021 at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. We will cover IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


India had a tough time in the T20I World Cup as they failed to qualify for the Semi-Finals and lost the match against New Zealand in the World Cup.

Indian cricket team will be led by a new captain, Rohit Sharma, who had immense success in the IPL. Either Rohit-Rahul or Rohit-Ishan Kishan can be the openers in this series for team India. The middle-order looks good with players like Surya, Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant. Venkatesh Iyer or Axar Patel might get the chance to play the role of an all-rounder.

Many new bowlers and some experienced players will get a chance to strengthen their place in the team. Yuzvendar Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin will be the key spinners. The pace attack has a lot of brilliant talent like Mohammad Siraj, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, and the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Indian team needs to forget their recent performance and focus on the upcoming T20Is as a learning opportunity for the next World Cup in Australia.

New Zealand:

New Zealand was brilliant in the T20I World Cup but had to face disappointment in the Final and ended up as Runner-up.

New Zealand has made some changes to their squad for this series. Guptill and Daryl Mitchell are likely to continue as the openers of the team. Mark Chapman will bat at No.3, and Glenn Phillips, Tim Seifert, and Jimmy Neesham will take care of the middle-order.

The bowlers have been in good form but appeared to be struggling in the last two matches. Tim Southee, and Ish Sodhi will play a crucial role in the series. M Santner and Adam Milne need to improve a bit in the T20I format.

New Zealand would be high on confidence and would try to dominate the series against India.
