Top 3 India vs New Zealand Prediction & Analysis:

This was India’s 7th consecutive bilateral series win at home. The Indian team will try to win the series and white wash the guests 3-0 whereas New Zealand will try to win the last game and play for their respect. 

These are our top 3 India vs New Zealand Predictions for the 3rd ODI.

#PREDICTION 1 – INDIA TO WIN THE GAME

Why will India win the game against NZ?

  • Indian team holds a dominant record at the Holkar Stadium, the team has won all the 5 games that they have played at the venue.
  • The India opening pair is looking in great form, Rohit Sharma has scored 85 runs in the 2 games while Shubhman Gill has a surprising total of 248 runs.
  • The main strength of the Indian squad lies in their pace attack. The Shami-Siraj duo has made an astonishing impact in this series so far, Shami has 4 wickets while Siraj has 5 wickets.
  • New Zealand is not performing up to the mark in the series so far, the bowling attack has let them down. No single bowler except Santner has been able to take wickets consistently.

#PREDICTION 2 – VIRAT KOHLI TO BE THE TOP BATTER

Reasons:

  • Virat Kohli can score a century in this game. The prime Kohli is back in form there will be no surprise if Kohli scores his 75th century in the 3rd ODI game.
  • Kohli has 1378 runs against NZ with an unreal average of 59.91 in just 27 innings.

#PREDICTIONS 3 – M SIRAJ TO BE THE TOP BOWLER

Reasons:

  • Siraj has become the main lead of the Indian bowling line-up. The way he has improved his line and length is impeccable.
  • He has 5 wickets in the last 2 games, we can expect him to take at least 3 wickets in this game.

India vs New Zealand Toss Prediction:

The Venue has hosted 5 ODI games in which the hosts emerged victorious in all of them. 

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

Pitch Report:

The Pitch at Holkar Stadium is known to be batter friendly and thanks to the even bounce and smaller boundaries it becomes a nightmare for the bowlers. We can expect a high-scoring game where batters will put a great show to watch on. The last international match hosted at the venue was a t20i between South Africa and India where a total of 400 runs were scored. Spinners will have to work hard to get wickets.

Weather Report:

Just like the previous two games we are going to watch another interrupted 50 over game. Weather forecast for January 24 indicates a little warm afternoon followed by cooler conditions in the night with a max temperature of 26°C reducing to a minimum temperature of 19°C during the playing hours. 

  •       Temperature: 26°C to 19°C
  •       Precipitation: 0%
  •       Humidity: 52%
  •       Wind: 10 km/h

India Probable Playing XI

Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj

New Zealand Probable Playing XI

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (c & wk), Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner

Conclusion:

The New Zealand side will try to win this game and start the T20i series with some positivity. We can expect good performance from NZ batters like Latham, Bracewell and Conway.

This series is equally important for both countries because of the upcoming ODI World Cup.

According to our experts’ predictions, India will win in this upcoming fixture and will win the series with 3-0.
