IND vs NZ Dream11 prediction: Welcome to the first test between India and New Zealand. The last time these two teams met was during the WTC final where New Zealand were crowned champions. Coming to this round, he will kick off the new WTC cycle for New Zealand while India has already started its journey with the unfinished test round in England. The last time New Zealand toured India in 2016 and 2012, they were whitewashed and are hoping to turn things around this time around. India will be without their captain Kohli and some key players like Rohit, Rahul, Pant and Bumrah, but the hosts are still a very formidable unit in their backyard. It promises to be an exciting test series.
