IND vs NZ 3rd T20I Dream11 Prediction: Hardik Pandya-led Indian team will face Mitchell Santner-spearheaded New Zealand in the 3rd T20I of the three-match series at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on 1st February 2023 (Wednesday). The said contest will start at 7:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST). Down below is everything you need to know about New Zealand tour of India 2023.

The second T20I at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium turned a shocker for everyone as the surface showed high conduction for the spin. None of the batters could get going on the surface from either team. New Zealand was bowled out for a measly total of 99 runs by the Indian bowlers.

Not a single Kiwi batter could score more than 20 runs. Their highest run-getter was captain Mitchell Santner who scored 19 runs from 23 deliveries.

In pursuit of a 100-run total, team India’s top order once again struggled to regain their form. Despite getting starts, the batters failed to translate it into a match-winning knock. Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav was the only batter who breached the 20-run mark as he scored unbeaten 26 runs from 31 balls, showing his other side of cricket.

Eventually, team India won the 2nd T20I at Ekana Stadium by six wickets and levelled the series 1-1 after two games.

With the series level at 1-1, the series decider will be a do-or-die fixture for both India and New Zealand. This article will lead you through the IND vs NZ 3rd T20I Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Team, Playing11, Pitch Report, Where to Watch New Zealand tour of India 2023?

The iconic Narendra Modi Stadium is expected to offer a poised surface for both batters and bowlers. With decent bounce, the batters can exploit the surface initially.
