IND vs NZ Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for IND vs NZ WTC Final 2021.
In what will be their first Test against each other at a neutral venue, India and New Zealand are all set to play the final match of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship in Southampton from tomorrow.
Been grinding for the last two years for a spot in the finals, both India and New Zealand have been top-notch Test teams in the given period primarily on the back of their respective bench strengths.
Having defeated England 1-0 in the recently concluded series, New Zealand have a slight edge over India when it comes to Test match practice ahead of the historic final. However, given all that India have done in this format in the last six months or so, the Black Caps would never want to take them for granted.
While India announced their Playing XI on the eve of the match, New Zealand are yet to do the same. Much like India, even New Zealand have some pondering to do with respect to their bowling division.
