IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Head to Head & Injury Updates for Cricket World Cup 2023, 21st Match

In the ODI Cricket World Cup, the two teams have crossed paths nine times. New Zealand boasts a superior record, having bested India five times.

In the 21st match of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, hosts India (IND) are set to face New Zealand (NZ) at the HPCA Cricket Stadium in Dharamshala. After four back-to-back victories, the Indian team will be looking to avenge their 2019 semifinal defeat against the Kiwis. It’s worth noting that since 2003, India has failed to win a single game against New Zealand in multinational tournaments.

On the other hand, New Zealand is coming here with four back-to-back victories. The team has been phenomenal throughout the ongoing tournament despite playing without their regular skipper, Kane Williamson. However, playing against India will pose a different challenge, as a win here will virtually ensure their qualification for the semifinals of the tournament.

IND vs NZ: Pitch Report

Traditionally, the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala has assisted pacers. The upcoming IND vs. NZ game is anticipated to feature a similar pitch. It is expected that fast bowlers will have a significant impact early on, prompting teams to prefer bowling first on this pitch. The average first-inning score at this venue stands at 231, while for the second inning, it is 199. However, previous matches have indicated that teams batting second have experienced greater success compared to those batting first.
