India and New Zealand will clash in the 28th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


India had a disappointing start to the tournament as they lost by ten wickets to Pakistan and are currently at the 5th position on Group 2’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 points table.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul returned to the pavilion without scoring much but Kohli batted brilliantly at No.3 scoring a fifty and Rishabh Pant also played a good inning. Surya Kumar Yadav, Hardik, and Jadeja also struggled in that match.

India’s bowling attack was completely out of fuel in the last match as they failed to pick up at least a wicket. Bumrah and Jadeja might be the crucial bowlers in the upcoming match against New Zealand.

India needs to win this match against NZ or they might get knocked out of the race for the Semi-Finals.

New Zealand:

New Zealand also lost their first match to Pakistan and are currently at the 4th position on Group 2’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup points table.

Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell opened the innings and provided a decent start in the last match. At No.3, Williamson was unlucky as he got run out and in the end, Devon Conway scored some crucial runs and helped the team to post a decent total. 

The bowling department tried their best but couldn’t win the match. Ish Sodhi picked up two wickets and the remaining bowlers, Santner, Southee, and Boult managed to pick up a wicket each.

New Zealand will also be eliminated from the race if they lose this match against India.
