India vs New Zealand 1st T20I Match Prediction. This is the first clash of Men in Blue and Blackcaps After a long T20 WC competition. The Men in Blue won 3 matches in a row in the T20 World Cup, although they couldn’t pass for the playoffs. The Black Caps, on the other hand, became the runners-up of the Grand Tournament, but they won’t be having the services of Kane Williamson. Tim Southee will commence the Kiwis in his absence.
Match – India vs New Zealand – 1st T20I
Venue – Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur
Time – 07:00 PM IST, 01:30 PM GMT
Date – 17th November 2021
Jaipur is yet to entertain a T20I, albeit the venue has hosted lots of the events in the IPL. The numbers stay on the higher side at the venue and a reasonably high-scoring game appears to be in store. Batting second should be the favored option. Batters will starve to pile up most runs.
The Weather in Jaipur is quite good. The Pink city will be shinning on a bright day. Although there is no prediction for clouds on cards for tomorrow’s match. But the pollution may become a problem while hosting the match.

Rohit Sharma has seemed in rather a decent impact with the bat in the hand of fresh. Although he had disappointed in the first two games in the World Cup, he attained his mojo following in India’s last 3 Super 12 matches. The expert obtained 174 runs from five matches at an average of 34.80. If the Indian skipper gets moving, the Black Caps would be in for a lot of pain.
Trent Boult was arguably the star bowler for New Zealand in the complete T20 World Cup. The speeder was on his record throughout the competition as he pulled up 13 wickets from 7 matches. In the game next to India, he pulled up 3 wickets for just 20 runs. Boult will now be seeming to make unexpected incursions into the Indian batting in the T20I series.
New Zealand just missed the last step to conquer the Worl Cup 2021 from Australia, in the finals, after defeating all strong foes like India and England, and others. But loosened at the end, which may result in low confidence. Men in Blue, Indian Team won consecutive 3 games in T20 WC but could not proceed in Semi-Finals, thus we predict win for Indian Team.
