India vs New Zealand: Toss prediction
Rain can ruin today’s battle between Kiwis and Indians and it was heavy rain yesterday and that’s why it will not easy to bat first. We assume that the toss winner will choose to bat second and if they choose the bat first it will not easy to create a good score to chase. When we observe the last seven ODI at Trent Bridge we found that four matches have won by the team who choose to bat first but due to the interruption of rain, the team which will bowl first will get the advantage.

New Zealand got the six points after winning all the three matches and the team is on the top on 10-team world cup 2019. In the initial match, Kiwis beat Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in Cardiff and in the second match they crushed Bangladesh by 2 wickets. In the third match, they faced Afganistan and this match was also won by the Kiwis.
When noticing the performance of Indian squad then it seems the real rival of Kiwis and giving the tough challenge to the New Zealand team. The Indian team has initiated the world cup 2019 journey with the two fantastic wins over Australia and South Africa. India has defeated South Africa in Southampton and Australia got smashed on Sunday at Oval.

India and New Zealand have played 106 ODI together. India won 51 matches out of 106 and the one match was a tie and the other five was not concluded. India won six matches out of last seven matches with New Zealand. The interesting fact is that both teams have battled only once at the Trent Bridge in the 50 over match. And in that match, New Zealand got the victory by 5 wickets ( 1999 World Cup).
India vs New Zealand: Who will be the winner of the battle
In the worn up watch before starting the World cup 2019, New Zealand got a win over India in the warm-up match and that’s the reason Kiwis are looking quite confident. One more thing which is responsible to boost up the morale of the New Zealand team is their fantastic win in the initial three matches. Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan were not very efficient teams with which New Zealand has battled until now. The real battle is going to begin today with Indians who are also looking pretty confident with the two incredible wins over South Africa and Australia.
Although Shikhar Dhawan is not in the team because of his injury the team has enough fuel to smash Kiwis in this tough match. One favorable thing for the Indian team is their batsman and that’s why they have more potential to win the match. In today’s match who will bat better will be the winner and Indian batting is ready to score high so as per the whole analysis India will be the winner of today’s match.
