India vs New Zealand Test Match Prediction 

 Match:  IND vs NZ Test Match Prediction 
 Time:     25 November, 09:30 AM (IST)  

Series:   1st Test Match 
 Venue:   Green Park Stadium – Kanpur, India 


  • KL Rahul has been in fantastic form for India across the whole of 2021. He had an excellent Test tour of England and is our pick for India’s highest run scorer in this Test. With the ball, Ravichandran Ashwin should come back into the Test side after not getting a game in England. He is our tip for India’s top wicket taker against New Zealand.
  • Captain Kane Williamson will return to the New Zealand side after resting during the IT20 series. He averages 53.95 in Test cricket and is well worth backing as New Zealand’s highest run scorer against India. Pace bowler Kyle Jamieson has 46 wickets from 8 Tests and is a strong choice for New Zealand’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin has not played a Test since the World Test Championship Final in Southampton. We expect to see him flourish in Kanpur and take the Player of The Match Award.

🏟️  Pitch Report IND vs NZ 1st Test Match:
The pitch in Kanpur is renowned for taking spin, even as early as on Day 1 of a Test Match. Batters will have to be patient and work hard for their runs on this surface.

Toss Prediction: 

Test cricket is all about making big first innings scores, particularly in India. As a result we expect both skippers to choose to bat first in this match.

Team News: 

IND Team News: 

  • With Virat Kohli due to return for the Second Test, and Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant all resting, Ajinkya Rahane will be leading out a much changed team from India’s last Test at The Oval in September. There are no injury worries in the squad.

NZ Team News: 

  • Irrespective of the format, New Zealand are a force to be reckoned with and none more so than in Test cricket. They are the current holders of the World Test Championship and have an excellent squad of players to pick from. However, they will miss Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme and Devon Conway who are all unavailable.

Who will win today match: IND vs NZ Test Match Fantasy Team
India will be looking for revenge from their World Test Championship Final defeat in this game and have a surface which should be very tough for New Zealand to bat on. The toss will be important and we expect New Zealand to fight hard, but our prediction is for an India win in the First Test.

IND Key Players: 

KL Rahul: 

The opener has been in supreme batting form after getting an opportunity to re-launch his Test career in England earlier this year.

Ajinkya Rahane

The India middle-order batter has struggled for big runs over the last couple of years in Test cricket but will relish the opportunity to lead the side again.

Ravichandran Ashwin:

The off-spinner caused England all sorts of problems during the Test series in India earlier this year and will be looking to do the same to New Zealand.

 NZ Key Players: 

Martin Guptill:

The opener had a strike-rate of 206.66 from his 15 balls on Friday and is getting his side off to excellent starts with the bat.

Trent Boult:

The fast left-arm bowler looked a little tired in Friday’s game but we expect him to play and bounce back at the iconic Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Tim Southee:

The stand-in captain was head and shoulders above the rest of his teammates with the ball on Friday. He took all 3 wickets for his team.

 IND vs NZ 1st Test Match Team Forms:
