India and New Zealand have emerged as the two top sides in the ongoing edition of the World Cup. Both teams are going from strength to strength and have been unbeaten so far in the tournament. With four wins from as many games, New Zealand and India sit atop the World Cup 2023 Points Table with the net run rate being the only difference.
Interstingly, in tomorrow’s fixture, one of the team’s unbeaten status will be put to a halt while the other side will enjoy a commanding five-match winning streak in the tournament.
Ahead of the fixture, India have already copped a blow with an injury to premier all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who hurt his left ankle in the game against Bangladesh. Pandya has been confirmed to miss the IND vs NZ fixture in Dharmshala and has not travelled with the Indian team for the game.
On the other side, New Zealand have been struggling with an injury to their skipper, Kane Williamson. But, it is worth noting that the Kiwis have managed to cover the loss of the skipper nicely enough so far in the World Cup 2023. With, or without, the services of Kane Williamson, New Zealand have managed to pull up four wins on the trot.
The major threat to the Indian team would be the pace battery of New Zealand, which will find it quite easy in Dharmshala to extract the in-air movement early in the innings. The likes of Trent Boult, Mat Henry, and Lockie Ferguson would be raring to lock horns against India.

IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction Today Match
A lot of how players will perform depends upon the nature of the surface. Dharmshala hasn’t produced any one-sided surface so far and we expect the same for the IND vs NZ contest. The players who are amongst runs will be crucial and must be in the Dream11 Team. The pacers like Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, and Matt Henry will also be quite interesting to watch if there is some live grass left on the surface.

HPCA Stadium Pitch Report, India vs New Zealand
The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharmshala has a history of getting exploited by the pacers. With the live grass on the surface, the seamers get movement aplenty to trouble the batters. But fortunately for the batters, it hasn’t behaved as aforementioned so far in the ICC World Cup 2023. In this very same ground, a few days ago, England racked up a total of 364 runs, which gives enough indication that the surface is going to be balanced.
