New Zealand vs India Dream11 Prediction & Preview: 3rd ODI

New Zealand and India will collide in the third and final ODI of the three-match ODI series at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. We will provide NZ vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Match Preview.

Team India has lost the ODI series losing the first two one-day matches against an injury-ridden New Zealand team. Kiwis, on the other hand, have made a strong comeback after facing clean-sweep in the T20I’s.

In the second ODI, New Zealand gave a target of 280 runs thanks to 79-run knock from Guptill and unbeaten 73* from ever-consistent Ross Taylor. Henry Nicholls also played a handy knock at the top, scoring 41 runs. Yuzi Chahal was the pick among Indian bowlers taking three wicket-haul while Shardul Thakur struck twice for the team.

In the chase, Prithvi Shaw came all guns blazing blasting six boundaries, but his fiery knock came to an end soon while Mayank Agarwal had another failure. Chase king Virat Kohli could also not do much while Shreyas Iyer scored crucial fifty for the team. Ravindra Jadeja and Navdeep Sini built an essential partnership at no.8 scoring 55 and 45 runs, respectively, but was not enough and ultimately were left behind by 22 runs. Kiwi pacers were right on the money with Bennett-Southee-Jamieson-Grandhomme taking two wickets each to seal the series.

Team India will hope to break their losing streak against New Zealand in ODI’s and end the series 2-1. At the same time, Blackcaps will be eager to continue the winning momentum ahead and take revenge for the T20I series clean sweeping the Indian team.

He is one of the world’s best batsmen and can make a comeback tomorrow after being sidelined due to injury. Williamson has the potential to play big knocks for his team.
