Kane Williamson will look to add more runs to his tally. He has played only two Tests in 2021 so far and has scored a double ton in one of the matches. The Kiwi skipper average close to 65 at neutral venues and against India, he has made 728 runs from his 11 matches.

Welcome to IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction for Today’s Match Fantasy Cricket. India will take on New Zealand in the World Test Championship Final on Friday 18th June at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. Keep reading to find out about the India vs New Zealand World Test Championship Final IND vs NZ Dream11 team today.

India and New Zealand will lock horns in the World Test Championship Final on 18th June 2021. New Zealand will enter this contest with confidence after a brilliant series win against England. New Zealand won the two-match Test series 1-0. Most importantly, the team won the match without their main players including Kane Williamson. 

The Kiwi skipper had to miss out on the final Test match against England due to an elbow niggle and will be back for the final here. This is certainly a big boost for the team considering the fact that there isn’t a lot of superstars available in the team. Perhaps Ross Taylor could be called a superstar but other than that most of the batters are comparatively inconsistent. 

On the other hand, India’s last Test was against the same opponent, England. Since then, most of the Indian players went on to play Indian Premier League but had to return home after a few games because of the bio-bubble breach. 

However, the team did play an intra-squad match and most of the top players found themselves among runs and wickets, something, the team will be glad about going into this contest. 

When these two teams met in Test cricket, New Zealand went on to win the series 2-0.

The average first innings total here is 337 and out of six Test matches here, two of them went to the team batting first while one went to the team batting second.
