Betting Tips
  • India come into this game with a powerful batting order and fantastic strength in depth in the bowling department. With the bat, captain Virat Kohli averages 52.37 from 91 Tests. Ravichandran Ashwin was unstoppable with the ball against England earlier this year, he took 32 wickets from the 4 Tests.
  • New Zealand have the benefit of having played 2 Tests against England earlier this month and are more used to the local conditions. Captain Kane Williamson is their star batsman and averages 53.60 from 84 Tests. With the ball, Trent Boult is their top bowler who relishes bowling on English pitches.
  • Rishabh Pant made the wicket-keeper spot his own with an impressive tour of Australia followed by scores of 91, 58* and 101 at home against England. His keeping has significantly improved also. For New Zealand, this will be BJ Watling’s final Test before retirement. He has hit 8 Test centuries and is a reliable catcher behind the stumps.

India vs New Zealand WTC Final Test Prediction & Betting Tips

India and New Zealand meet in the inaugural World Test Championship Final at the Hampshire Bowl on the south coast of England.

The final will get underway at 10:30 local time on June 18.

India come into this Test with five wins from their last seven games including victories in the last three over England by an innings and 25 runs, 10 wickets, and 317 runs. They beat Australia in Australia for the second successive tour earlier this year.

New Zealand are the most underrated side in world cricket and have all the tools for success in this game. They beat England 1-0 earlier this month and beat India 2-0 in their two game series as part of the WTC.

IND vs NZ WTC Final Test Match Toss Prediction

The instinct of both skippers will be to choose to bat first in this game. However, there will be plenty of cloud cover and potentially rain on Day 1 which could tempt Kane Williamson or Virat Kohli to bowl first.

IND vs NZ WTC Final Test Match Pitch Report

Three of six Test Matches at the venue have ended in draws with pace bowlers tending to have more success on the surface than spinners.

Weather Report

Rain is currently forecast for parts of each day of the match. Top temperature of 19 degrees with not a great deal of sun breaking through the clouds.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

India announced their 15-man squad for the game on Tuesday and will pick from an impressive group of players. English wickets are a far cry from those seen in India’s last Tests in Ahmedabad so we expect to see a pace heavy attack alongside Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Jadeja as all-rounder.

IND Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - India’s captain is always the most prized wicket by the opposition in the batting line-up. He loves to perform on the big stage but has not scored a Test century for 7 matches.
  • Rishabh Pant - The wicket-keeper is a fantastic attacking batsman down the order for India. He has added responsibility to his flair game and can quickly take the game away from the opposition.
  • Jasprit Bumrah - After 17 Test Matches away from home, Bumrah finally played 2 Tests at home earlier this year. He is one of the world’s best fast bowlers and has 83 wickets from 19 Tests.

IND Team Form

Three successive big wins over England should be tempered by a poor series in England in 2018 when they lost the series 4-1. However, India are a far stronger outfit than in 2018.

India Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c) , Anjinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Siraj, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

After resting players for the Second Test against England, Kane Williamson will have a fully fit squad to choose from. The Black Caps usually favour selecting a spinner in all conditions but may well be tempted to discard that approach when looking at historic performances and the weather at the ground.

NZ Key Players

  • Kane Williamson - New Zealand’s captain has a comparatively poor record in Test cricket in England but comes into this match with a score of 238 in Test cricket already this year.
  • Kyle Jamieson - The tall pace bowler has taken to Test cricket like a duck to water and currently averages 15.15 with the ball and 47 with the bat after 7 Tests.
  • Trent Boult - The left-arm fast medium bowler missed the First Test against England at Lord’s but returned with figures of 4-85 and 2-34 at Edgbaston. He looks in peak condition ahead of this final.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand are unbeaten in their last 8 Tests and were unlucky not to beat England at Lord’s due to wet weather. Without that draw they would have won 8 in a row.

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Devon Conway, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c) , Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult

India vs New Zealand Prediction

The inaugural World Test Championship comes to an end with this game and it would be an awful shame if rain prevents a winner. Both sides come into the game in excellent form with New Zealand arguably more game-ready after two Tests against England. However, overall we are backing India to win an enthralling Test.

Final Verdict

India are favorites to beat New Zealand at the odds of 2.50

IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    BJ Watling (8.5) and Rishabh Pant (9) will be our wicket-keepers. Both are exceptional batsmen in their own right as well as competent wicket-keepers.

  • Batsmen

    Virat Kohli (10), Kane Williamson (10), Cheteshwar Pujara (9.5) and Devon Conway (8.5) are our batsmen. Both captains will want to make big scores and lead their team to victory

  • All-rounders

    Ravi Jadeja (9) and Ravichandran Ashwin (9) will be our all-rounders. Both have performed well in English conditions previously

  • Bowlers

    Trent Boult (9), Jasprit Bumrah (9) and Kyle Jamieson (8.5) are our bowlers. All three are capable of going on a wicket taking spree to wrestle the game in their favour.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Virat Kohli will be captain, Kyle Jamieson his deputy

IND vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Virat Kohli (c), Kane Williamson, Cheteshwar Pujara, Devon Conway

  • All Rounder:Ravi Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin

  • Wicket Keeper:BJ Watling, Rishabh Pant

  • Bowler:Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Kyle Jamieson (vc)
