New Zealand Vs India Betting Preview

The Kiwis are always in their best form when they appear in a World Cup tournament. However, their loss against Pakistan was quite similar to India's loss against the same team. They rarely found themselves settled at any rate of the game. But, this is a new match and both teams will have worked out their weaknesses to avoid disappointing mistakes.

India is led by a captain who tries to build all-around pressure on the opposition, a strategy that failed against Pakistan. On the other hand, New Zealand's captain, the thinker and risk-taker, Kane Williamson, employs strategic and percentage gaming principles. Even in the first match, if, for a moment, New Zealand found regained their rhythm, it was because of his captaincy. Experts call it the battle of “ice” and “fire”.

Both teams have some similarities too. For instance, they have a similar kind of depth in the batting line-up. The only match that India played ended in a disappointing defeat. It was their depth in batting that gave them enough to avoid being shamed. On the other hand, New Zealand has always struggled against class bowling attacks. We saw some moments of miscommunication in their last match; they will certainly try to fix that.

When it comes to collective batting performances, India has the edge over New Zealand in a variety of aspects. But the Kiwis have more firepower in their line-up which means they can take off easily if early six overs are wisely manoeuvred. India had a terrible display of their bowling unit; they failed to acknowledge the weaknesses of the opposite batting unit. On the other hand, New Zealand has a vigilant bowling attack that bowls wicket to wicket with consistency.

New Zealand and India Betting Stats and Trends

New Zealand

  • Inconsistency with the bat in death overs.
  • Has lost 4 out of the last 5 T20 series played in the last two years.

India

  • One of the favourites to win the T20 Men's World Cup.
  • An unfixed and inexperienced middle-order batting line-up.
  • Has one of the best opening pairs of the T20 World Cup.
  • Has lost 4 out of the last 5 T20 series played in the last two years.
  • More balanced and consistent in comparison to New Zealand.

India will be looking forward to maintaining their position in the top two. After Pakistan, New Zealand is most likely to challenge India in group B. As records, stats, and current form speaks, this seems to be going in New Zealand's favour at the moment.
