NZ vs IND Dream11 Prediction, 2nd Test: Preview, Head to Head, Pitch Report, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Team

NZ vs IND Dream11 Prediction:  India unbeaten run in the World Test Championship has been broken and it now faces another very tough examination at Christchurch. India was rolled over by New Zealand and beaten by ten wickets. Virat Kohli may not think so but the defeat was a massive one by any measure. Losing the first test is not alien to India, though and it has shown an incredible ability to bounce back on recent tours.

Prithvi Shaw has looked out of place against the swinging ball in spite of which he is likely to get the nod ahead of Shubman Gill in the playing XI. Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane have all struggled to different degrees.

India’s batting has been quite poor and Mayank Aggarwal is the only batsman that has shown the discipline required to succeed.

New Zealand is not going to make things any easier. The pitch looks lush green and could make the toss a huge factor once more. New Zealand is also going to welcome back Neil Wagner for this match, giving it a pleasant selection headache.
