India vs New Zealand, 1st ODI: Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Possible Playing 11, Match Prediction. India are facing New Zealand on Friday in Auckland.

India had won the T20I series by a 1-0 margin, and they would like to replicate the result in the ODI format as well. New Zealand, on the other hand, will be keen to win the ODI series and restore the parity.

The New Zealand side has also got a boost as skipper Kane Williamson returned to lead the side after missing the 3rd T20I at Napier due to “pre-appointed medical reasons.” His solid presence on the field will be a boost for the Kiwis.

India will also see the return of Shikhar Dhawan, not just as opener but as captain as well. The left-hander will be eager to win the ODI series and keep his name up in the rolls as India brace for the road to the ODI World Cup later next year.

Here’s then the Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Possible Playing 11 and Match Prediction for the India vs New Zealand 1st ODI.

4 Match Prediction

India will field a balanced team under Shikhar Dhawan for the ODIs and the squad is not much different from their T20 squad either. New Zealand will be led by Kane Williamson and they too have a tried and tested side, strong in their home conditions. That familiarity factor will give New Zealand a slight edge going into the first ODI.
