IND vs NZ, 2nd ODI Preview
After a very entertaining opening game of the series which India won by 12 runs over New Zealand in Hyderabad, the two teams make the journey to Raipur for Saturday’s day-night ODI. IND vs NZ, India posted 349-8 in the first game but New Zealand gave the chase a real good go. They were still in the game at the start of the 50th over before being dismissed for 337. India rotated some of their players in the opening game but were still able to win a tough encounter. We expect them to play even better in this match and struggle to see how they will lose this match. New Zealand showed fantastic fighting spirit to take the game to the final over after finding themselves 131-6 in the 29th over. The Black Caps never give up but it will be very hard for them to win this game.

IND vs NZ 2nd ODI Probable Winners:
India are always strong in home conditions but their batters are currently delivering big scores on demand. With Mohammed Siraj also producing wickets, India are looking extremely good. The first ODI of the series had the attention of cricket fans across the globe to the end of the match. They all witnessed extraordinary innings from both Shubman Gill and Michael Bracewell, and this game could well go to the final over as well. We predict another high scoring match with India’s top order batters leading the way again and New Zealand fighting hard. We expect to see India win the game to go 2-0 up in the series. Considering the team combination, India is expected to win this match.
