IND vs NZ Betting Tips

  • Virat Kohli hit 166 not out on Sunday and the number three batter is a strong choice for India’s highest run scorer in this match. Mohammed Siraj has been in excellent form in this format and took nine wickets against Sri Lanka over the three ODIs. The quick bowler is our tip for India’s top wicket taker against New Zealand.
  • Devon Conway hit his second ODI century during the tour of Pakistan and the top order batter is well worth backing as New Zealand’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Lockie Ferguson took 2-63 in the final ODI in Lahore and the quick bowler is our pick for New Zealand’s top wicket taker against India in Hyderabad.
  • In his current form, very few bowlers in world cricket will be able to stop Virat Kohli. We recommend backing him to hit over 37.5 runs in this ODI.

IND vs NZ 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

India and New Zealand begin their three match ODI series on Wednesday afternoon in Hyderabad. The hosts come into this series after beating Sri Lanka 3-0 in a series earlier this month. New Zealand came back from losing their first game against Pakistan to win their series 2-1 last week. Read on as we preview this opening fixture. The match begins at 13:30 local time at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

India will not have their first-choice team available during this series but will still put out a very strong XI in each game. They are playing a high level in this format and will be confident of going 1-0 up in the series.

Although New Zealand will be without some of their most experienced players, they should never be underestimated. They beat India in an ODI series at the end of 2022 and will expect to be competitive in Hyderabad.

IND vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

The team batting second have won the last two ODIs at this venue and we predict that both skippers will want to field first in this game.

IND vs NZ, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium Pitch Report

It is not the quickest wicket in India and we expect spin bowlers to get plenty of assistance from this pitch. Any score over 300 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings.

Hyderabad Weather Report

The forecast is for hot and sunny conditions during daylight with the temperature up at 29 degrees. The temperature will drop to 21 degrees after sunset.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

KL Rahul and Axar Patel, who both impressed against Sri Lanka earlier in the month, are both not in the squad for this series due to family commitments. Jasprit Bumrah continues to be absent through injury and opener Rohit Sharma will captain the side. Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the series owing to back injury.

IND Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - The former India skipper is playing at a fantastic level at the moment. He has scored three centuries from his last four ODI innings and is very comfortable with his game.
  • Shubman Gill - With places very hard to lock down in India’s batting line-up, the young right-handed opener has grasped his opportunity over the last 12 months. He hit 116 from 97 balls on Sunday.
  • Mohammed Siraj - The 28 year old right-arm fast bowler produced his best ODI bowling figures in the last game against Sri Lanka. He finished with 4-32 and bowled brilliantly throughout the game.

IND Team Form

India are in excellent form in this format and are targeting their fourth successive ODI victory. Their current run includes wins over Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

There will be big names missing for the Black Caps in this series with captain Kane Williamson, Tim Southee and Trent Boult not in the squad. Tom Latham will take over captaincy duties and is likely to also keep wicket across these three games.

NZ Key Players

  • Devon Conway - The left-handed opener has been an excellent addition to New Zealand across all formats since making his international debut in 2020. He averages 44.46 in this format.
  • Michael Bracewell - The all-rounder enjoyed the recent tour of Pakistan and is more than capable of contributing with bat and ball. He took four wickets during the games in Karachi earlier this month.
  • Lockie Ferguson - With Tim Southee and Trent Boult not in the squad for this series, the right-arm pace bowler, Lockie Ferguson, will lead the attack. He is a genuine fast bowler and causes problems on any surface.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand come into this ODI looking to register their third win in a row in this format. They have an excellent recent record over India in ODIs.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Tom Latham (c) (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Jacob Duffy, Lockie Ferguson

Who will win India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Match?

Without Kane Williamson, New Zealand always look a weaker side. Compared to the strength in depth that India have in their batting line-up, New Zealand’s batting is a bit of a worry.

IND vs NZ Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Rohit Shama, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill with the bat for India. The top odds are shared by Sharma and Kohli who have scored 75 ODI centuries between them. Shubman Gill has two centuries in this format from 18 games and is in excellent form.

Devon Conway, Tom Latham and Daryl Mitchell are our batting choices for New Zealand. After his century in Karachi, and with Kane Williamson absent from the team, it is no surprise to see Conway as the batting favourite. Latham has hit seven hundreds and 18 half-centuries in this format.

IND vs NZ Top Team Bowlers

Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami are our bowling selections for India. Siraj is bowling at the highest level we have seen throughout his career and fully deserves to be installed as favourite with the bookies. Left-arm wrist spinner Yadav has impressed since returning to the team and took figures of 3-51 and 2-16 against Sri Lanka.

We recommend Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner with the ball for New Zealand. Ferguson has often had to wait behind the likes of Boult and Southee and will relish the leader tag in this bowling attack. Sodhi was a constant threat with the ball across the Tests and ODIs in Pakistan.

🏆 India vs New Zealand Prediction

Two of the world's best ODI sides will get this series underway and we expect India to get off to a winning start. Although New Zealand should never be written off, they have rested some of their most experienced players and touring India, in front of their passionate fans, is never easy at the best of times. With India’s batters displaying exceptional form at the moment, we are predicting an India victory.
