New Zealand vs India 2nd Test Match Prediction

After inflicting a first defeat of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship on India last time out, New Zealand are in charge of this series ahead of the second and final match. The test takes place at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval between February 29 and March 4 and the live action starts at 10:30 local time each day.

India won their first seven matches of the ICC World Test Championship and still sit top of the table as a result, but New Zealand’s paceman ended their 100 per cent record last time out. Tim Southee, Trent Boult and debutant Kyle Jamieson bowled New Zealand to victory as they carted India for 165 and 191 in their two innings.

It was only New Zealand’s second win six matches in the Championship, meanwhile – Kane Williamson’s 89 ensuring they built a big first-innings lead, before they wrapped up a ten-wicket win in just ten balls in the second innings.

Toss Prediction

New Zealand won the toss and fielded first last time out and the wicket could demand bowling first again.

Weather Report

The forecast is due to deteriorate later in the week, with rain set for the final two days – particularly the Wednesday. The first three days should be clear and warm but humid, however.

Pitch Condition

The general flavour of the Hagley Oval wicket is one of a good, consistent bounce – there is pace for the fast bowlers, but good strokeplay will be rewarded too.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

With Neil Wagner absent last time out, Kyle Jamieson bowled well on his test debut and it will be a tough decision as to who the left-arm paceman replaces when he returns this time out. Realistically, Jamieson is top of the list to make way, however, in what could be the only change for New Zealand.

NZ Key Players

Ross Taylor: Marked his 100th test match with a solid 44 in the first innings, falling just short of a 34th test half-century. He has 19 centuries and 7,218 runs to his name in test cricket.

Neil Wagner: New Zealand’s pacemen coped well with the absence of the left-armer last time out, but the man ranked number two in the test bowling rankings will be back with a vengeance for this second test.

Kane Williamson: Scored 89 in the first innings of the first test and now averages 51.74 in test cricket, including 21 hundreds and 32 half-centuries.

NZ Recent Form

Though they beat England in a mini-series outside of the ICC World Test Championship, New Zealand went into this series on the back of three straight defeats to Australia. The bowlers hit back, however – Kyle Jamieson taking four wickets in his first test innings, before Tim Southee and Trent Boult led the way in the second innings. It earned New Zealand a comfortable ten-wicket win.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Injured Rohit Sharma was missed last time out, as Prithvi Shaw replaced him at the top of the order for India. Ravindra Jadeja was not selected last time out, with Hanuma Vihari bolstering the batting line-up instead, but Jadeja could return this time as a fifth bowling option in  NZ vs IND Test Series 2020. Ishant Sharma has suffered a reoccurrence of his ankle injury, and Umesh Yadav looks set to replace the paceman.

IND Key Players

Mayank Agarwal: Among the top run-scorers in the ICC World Test Championship so far, moving to 769 at an average of 64.08 last time out.

Virat Kohli: Scores of two and 19 last time out can not detract from the fact the India captain remains among the world’s foremost batsmen, averaging 54.30 in test cricket.

Jasprit Bumrah: With Ishant Sharma out injured, India will need their star paceman to step back up to lead the attack.

IND Recent Form

India had won their first seven consecutive tests in the ICC World Test Championship, seeing off West Indies, South Africa and Bangladesh, before defeat to New Zealand last time out.

The Indians fell well short with the bat, posting just 165 and 191 in their two innings, with Ishant Sharma’s five-wicket haul with the ball proving in vain.

India Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

NZ vs IND Dream11 Prediction


BJ Watling is nine credits behind the stumps and the most expensive of those listed, but he has emerged as a serious test batsman with his performance against England this winter especially.


Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli both cost 10.5 credits, but the New Zealand captain starred last time out and the India captain is never far away from a big innings of his own. Elsewhere, Ross Taylor is 9.5 credits and, like Ajinkya Rahane or India at the same price, forms a vital part of the middle order. After another half-century last time out, meanwhile, Mayank Agarwal is well worth selecting at 8.5 credits.


If he plays, Ravindra Jadeja could be a key inclusion for India after not playing the first test. At 8.5 credits, he is good value too. 


The New Zealand pacemen were in excellent form last time out and Neil Wagner’s return only bolsters the attack. You can afford one of Wagner and Tim Southee, alongside Trent Boult and either Mohammed Shami or Umesh Yadav. That leaves eight credits, and Ajaz Patel can round off your selection.


New Zealand’s bowlers starred last time out and Neil Wagner, on his return, could join the party. He is certainly worthy of consideration though it is hard to ignore the usual suspects such as Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli too.

NZ vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Virat Kohli (c), Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson, Ajinkya Rahane, Mayank Agarwal

  • All Rounder:Ravindra Jadeja

  • Wicket Keeper:BJ Watling

  • Bowler:Neil Wagner (vc), Trent Boult, Mohammed Shami, Ajaz Patel

New Zealand vs India Head to Head

It was in stark contrast to their series whitewash in India when they last met in September/October 2016. New Zealand’s batting fell short in those matches, but it was India last time out – carted for just 165 and 191 as Tim Southee took nine wickets in the match. New Zealand won by ten wickets, needing just ten balls to seal victory.
