IND VS NZ MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
After the Indians won the second match by six wickets to level the series, the third and final match will be a series decider. The Indians also struggled in the run chase, losing the game with one ball left, and the Kiwis only scored 99 runs. In order for either side to prevail in the series finale, they will need to put on their best performance.
In this format of the game, the Indians have dominated the Kiwis. In their last ten games, they have only lost twice to New Zealand. The team plays at home and is well-versed in the conditions. It will be interesting to see if the Kiwis can win the series against the Indians in their own backyard.
Hardik Pandya, the captain, will be relieved that his team was able to level the series in the last game. In the first match, the Indian bowlers received a lot of criticism. With their most recent victory, the team has gained momentum and will attempt to win the series 2-1. Pandya will expect his bowlers to put on a good show because it has been one of the team's concerns the past two years.
The team will try to get off to a good start in this game because Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan can play their strokes. Suryakumar Yadav, along with Rahul Tripathi and Washington Sundar, will look to anchor the innings in the middle order because of his exceptional form. Hardik Pandya, along with Deepak Hooda and Shivam Mavi, is one of the best hitters in the order. The team would like to see him add quick runs.
The bowlers made good use of the conditions in the previous match, and the team will hope that Pandya and Washington Sundar will do well with the new ball. In the previous game, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav bowled brilliantly, and they will need to do it again. The team's well-balanced attack is completed by Mavi, Arshdeep Singh, and Deepak Hooda.
India Team Players: Hardik Pandya (c), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
New Zealand Preview
The way his batters performed in the previous game will make Mitchell Santner angry. They were 20 runs short of what would have been a good score on that surface because they failed to adjust to the conditions. Santner and his men must put on a strong performance in this game to win the series after allowing the Indians to tie the series.
Devon Conway and Finn Allen have performed admirably over the past year, and the team can anticipate a strong performance from them in this matchup. In the middle order, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, and Daryl Mitchell must all score quickly. As the Indian bowling attack will pose a challenge to them, Michael Bracewell and Santner must perform well down the order.
The team's bowling attack isn't very strong, so Jacob Duffy and Michael Bracewell will need to bowl quickly with the new ball. Together with Ish Sodhi, Santner must bowl well and lead from the front. In this series decider, they will also need tight bowling from Mark Chapman and Lockie Ferguson.

PITCH AND WEATHER CONDITIONS
We anticipate a cool evening on February 1 and clear skies above Ahmedabad. The wicket is two-paced, so batsmen need to be on their guard. Since the ball would turn on a dry surface in this game, spinners will enjoy it. To feel safe, the first-inning team would need 180 runs or more.
The outfield at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is quick and has a flat surface. Here, batsmen who build their innings have done better. On this surface, fast bowlers rely on their variations to earn rewards. Since the ball can abruptly turn and stop on the batsmen, it has been a happy hunting ground for spinners.
Toss: To Bowl
It's difficult to bat first on this wicket. Because the surface is flat, big scores can be easily chased, and most teams have won games here. In this game, the team that won the toss would be happy to let their opponent bat first.
In their five games, New Zealand has only won once, which is a poor tour. The Indians' strong batting lineup will present a formidable obstacle for the inexperienced bowling attack. India will be confident because of the favorable conditions and the team's strong batting lineup. We anticipate a close contest, but the Indians will open as underdogs.
