New Zealand vs India 1st T20I Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Team, Playing11, Pitch Report, Where to Watch: Hardik Pandya-led team India will face Kane Williamson-spearheaded New Zealand on 18th November at Sky Stadium, Wellington to kickstart the India tour of New Zealand.
Both sides had a painful end to their T20 World Cup 2022 campaign. Despite performing brilliantly through the group stages, India and New Zealand failed to produce a match-winning performance in the semi-final and were subsequently defeated by England and Pakistan.
But, leaving the past aside, the Indians and Kiwis would look to restructure the side and start afresh in the three-match T20I series. While the hosts have retained their key players for the white-ball series, India will miss their senior players. Several youngsters have been awarded an excellent opportunity to perform against New Zealand.
Hardik Pandya will lead the Indian side in absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma. The likes of Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, and R Ashwin are other notable names who have been rested for the tour.
