Top 3 India vs New Zealand Prediction & Analysis:

India will try to win the game and book the series under their name while New Zealand will perform their level best to win the match and survive in the series.

These are our top 3 India vs New Zealand Predictions for the second ODI:

#PREDICTION 1 – NEW ZEALAND TO WIN THE GAME

Reasons:

  • We saw an amazing fightback from the NZ side in the last game with a game changing partnership of 162 runs between Bracewell and Santner.
  • NZ batters are looking in good form, they were just 12 runs short in the mighty chase of 350 runs.
  • Indian bowling is not up to the mark which is the main reason why New Zealanders are favorites to win the game. The pacers were leaking runs in the middle overs, Shardul and Hardik were very expensive in the last game and bowled with an economy of 7.40 and 10.00 respectively
  • All-rounders Mitchell Santner and Michael Bracewell are looking in good touch. Santner scored 57 runs and took an important wicket of Virat Kohli in his spell. Bracewell was a bit unlucky with the ball but the 31 yr old played a classic knock of 140 runs in just 78 balls.

PREDICTION 2 – R SHARMA TO BE THE TOP BATTER

Reasons:

  • Rohit is one of the most classy batters ever. Despite having a good start he is unable to convert big in the previous games.
  • Rohit has scored 176 runs in his last 4 ODI innings, and fans, as well as the management, are waiting for his century.

PREDICTION 3 – K YADAV TO BE THE TOP BOWLER

Reasons: 

  • The conditions at Raipur are suitable for the young left-arm spinner, Kuldeep can shock the batters with his big turners and flighted deliveries.
  • Kuldeep has played 7 games against New Zealand and has 13 wickets

India vs New Zealand Toss Prediction:

The Venue has not yet played host to any of the International games.

According to our experienced cricket experts, India is more likely to win the toss and elect to bat first.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur is going to be a bit slow which is going to help the spinners in the second half. Overall batters are going to enjoy batting on this track. The shorter boundaries will help them in scoring big. There will be no initial moments for the pacers but the cutter and slower deliveries can be more influential on the pitch.

Weather Report:

According to the weather forecast for January 21, the day will start out nice and warm in the midday hours and will become a bit colder, with a high temperature of 29°C dropping to a low of 24°C at playtime. There is no chance of rain, fans can enjoy an uninterrupted battle.
