New Zealand


New Zealand was one of the top teams in the tournament and their batting lineup did help them score big totals and chase totals as well. Finn Allen, Conway, backed up with the support of Williamson and Phillips is the one of the best partnerships that we saw in the tournament. However, Williamson may be the anchor for his team in a good and bad way. The good way is that he does not get out quickly and give away his wicket while the bad part is his strike rate is low. He needs to amp up his batting. 


As far as bowling is concerned, we have seen variable performances by players. Boult, Southee, and Sodhi are the main bowlers with experience in the line-up. Sodhi sometimes is unable to execute the ball well and proves to be quite expensive thus if the opponent teams target him, he must work on his delivery. However, the fast bowlers do swing the ball as well. It might be difficult for India to face up Boult as they have had trouble with facing left-armed high paced bowlers. 



India has arguably one of the strongest batting lineups. They can pose a threat to any opposition. Virat Kohli seems to be back in form while the opening pair of India has always been a threat. Their strike rates are too good as well. Following up with their explosive middle order to finish off the innings. India is up with a proper batting lineup. How can we forget about Suryakumar Yadav. He is the biggest threat to New Zealand’s bowling attack. 


Indian pacers were exceptional in the tournament, they swung the ball perfectly in the first few overs of the game grabbing crucial wickets and restricting the opponent teams. We saw how in the first few overs it was difficult for any batsman to adjust to their bowling. We will have to see Muhammad Shami and Arshdeep Singh to get to their best and work in India’s favor. 

India vs New Zealand Betting Tips & Match Predictions – Winner Prediction

India VS New Zealand is always a good match to watch and it is one of the most exciting matches to see. You will be able to see a match with teams that are evenly matched. However, the advantage is with India and seeing the previous records and the current team strength India does have advantage.
