Overall Match Prediction

The encounter between India and New Zealand will be a crucial match in the group B fixture of the ICC t20 world cup 2021. Especially for India, who has never defeated New Zealand in the world cup matches since 2003. New Zealand has outpaced India at various games. Indian skipper Virat Kohli might make some changes to the roster. One of the changes we could predict is the inclusion of Shardul Thakur in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Shardul Thakur has been exceptional with bat and bowl in various matches. 

In New Zealand, Martin Guptil is expected to play against India. Since he was injured in the previous match against Pakistan, there were multiple rumors regarding his replacement. Both India and New Zealand will look forward to winning the toss and creating big runs on the board. Since Virat Kholi is in the best form, Indian cricket fans will expect another power pack performance from his bat. The bowling lineup of India is also likely to curate unique strategies to bag early wickets in the game and create pressure on New Zealand. 

Cricbro match prediction today favors India because of their ability to turn important games with phenomenal performances.
