IND vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction | 3rd T20I | New Zealand tour of India 2021

India and New Zealand will play in the 3rd T20I match of the New Zealand tour of India 2021 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. We will cover IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


India has won the series with one match remaining by putting up a brilliant performance in both games.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are in sensational form and are scoring runs consistently from the top. Venkatesh Iyer batted at No.3 in the last match and performed well, but Surya got out for only one run. As usual, Rishabh Pant served the role of finisher perfectly and won the game.

The bowlers improved compared to the first match performance. Harshal Patel picked up two wickets in his first International T20I match, and Ashwin has been economical and picking up wickets consistently. Bhuvneshwar, Deepak Chahar, and Axar picked up one wicket each.

Indian team would be aiming for the whitewash by winning the series 3-0.

New Zealand:

New Zealand has been down and out in this series as they lost two consecutive matches.

Guptill is performing tremendously well by scoring runs quickly at the top, but Daryl Mitchell was a little slow in his approach. At No.3, Chapman has been batting sensibly, and Glenn Phillips played a quick inning in the last match, but the remaining batsmen are struggling, and as a result, they were not able to finish correctly in both games.

The bowler’s struggle continues as they failed to pick up wickets, and only Tim Southee got three in the last match, and the remaining bowlers were expensive and wicketless. 

New Zealand hopes to win the last match and save itself from the humiliation of being whitewashed.
