IND vs NZ Fantasy Prediction: Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for the Match 21 of ODI World Cup 2023

India will take on New Zealand, a team that they have never won against at the World Cup since 2003, in the next match at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala. It was New Zealand that denied India a chance to make it to the final of the 2019 World Cup, and the Rohit Sharma led side will be looking to take revenge for the same. Both India and New Zealand are undefeated in the tournament so far. 

The Blackcaps began their campaign by beating defending champions England by nine wickets, followed by a win over Netherlands by 99 runs, a win over Bangladesh by eight wickets and a win over Afghanistan by 149 runs. However, they will now be up against some of the stronger sides in the tournament – India, followed by Australia, South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. They will be looking to make the best use of their pacers against India on the Dharamshala wicket. 

Hosts India beat Australia by six wickets, then got the better of Afghanistan by eight wickets, defeated Pakistan by seven wickets and crushed Bangladesh by seven wickets.

With 10 wickets in four games at an average of 13.40, Jasprit Bumrah is the top wicket taker for the team. All-rounder Hardik Pandya, meanwhile, sustained an injury in the last game and is not available for at least the next two games.

Ahead of the next game of Cricket World Cup 2023, here is everything you need to know.
