India vs New Zealand – ICC T20 World Cup Betting Tips

India will face New Zealand in the match 28 of the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai on Sunday.

The match is a must-win one for both teams if they are to keep their destiny of qualification in the last-four in their own hands. As things stand, both teams have zero point after one match played.

Historically, both teams have been very competitive in the T20 format where they’ve won eight times each in 16 meetings.

However, the Men-in-Blue will feel good about the fact that they’ve emerged victorious in each of the last five meetings, which included two super overs as well.

India Form and Team News

After suffering a thrashing 10-wicket defeat against arch-rivals Pakistan in their previous outing, India will enter the contest on Sunday with low confidence and some changes are expected in the playing XI as well.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya, who suffered a shoulder injury during the previous fixture after being hit by on a short pitch delivery of Shaheen Shah Afridi, is likely to be rested for the next match and Ravichandran Ashwin might be included in his place.

The management will be extremely concerned with the bowling performance as the bowlers failed to trouble the Men-in-Green in the high-intensity affair.

Therefore, one out of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Mohammad Shami — both of whom looked completely out of sort in the previous fixture — are likely to make way for Shardul Thakur.

In the batting department, the Men-in-Blue will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Virat Kohli, openers KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Thakur along with the spin trio of Ravindra Jadeja, Varun Chakravarthy and Ashwin to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.

New Zealand Form and Team News

After suffering a five-wicket defeat in their previous outing, New Zealand are likely to make some changes in the starting XI for their match against India.

The Black Caps’ decision to play three medium pacers in the match against Pakistan backfired and that is likely to be changed with the inclusion of tall right-arm pacer Kyle Jamieson.

In the batting department, the Kiwis will be relying on the likes of captain Kane Williamson, veteran opener Martin Guptill, in-form Devon Conway, wicketkeeper-batter Tim Seifert and all-rounders Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham to score bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Trent Boult, Jamieson, Neesham along with the spin duo of Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner to claim timely breakthroughs which can help in restricting the opposition to a manageable total.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams are coming in the match after suffering a comprehensive defeat in their previous outing against the same opposition.

On paper, team India look a more solid unit compared to their rivals. However, in the absence of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya and lackluster form of the bowlers, New Zealand might look to surprise their opposition in a spin-friendly conditions.

Therefore, the prediction is for Williamson-led unit to secure their first win of the competition.
