Our Top 3 Match Predictions for Ind vs New Zealand 1st T20i


Why will INDIA win?

  • The Indian team is known for making a strong comeback and they can bounce back and win this series.
  • The Kiwis have bowled very well so far but their Pace attack is totally out of form the pacers have just 3 wickets in the last 2 games.
  • Another main reason for India’s win will be their T20 specialist batters. Team has batters like: Shubhman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, and Hardika Pandya, these batters can accelerate very quickly and win matches single handedly. 
Batters Strike Rate
S Gill 131.82
Surya Kumar 180.34
Ishan Kishan 127.85
Hardik Pandya 143.97
Deepak Hooda 147.58


  • Ishan Kishan is a young gun in the Indian team, we can expect his bat to blow fire in this upcoming fixture and score more than 50 runs. 
  • The 24 year old has 652 runs in 26 innings.


  • The black soil pitch at Ahmedabad is going to help the pacers. Arshdeep can capitalize over the extra bounce and can take early wickets in the power plays and in the slog overs as well.
