India vs New Zealand 4th ODI
Time: 1.30 PM (IST)

New Zealand has won the only match so far on this tour and struggling to adapt the condition. The New Zealand’s batting is the main concern of the team as except captain Kane Williamson and opener Tom Latham rest all other batsmen have not yet performed in the series. New Zealand defeated host India in the 2nd match which was their first win on Indian soil in 13 years but they failed to repeat in the 3rd ODI.
This very tough time for guest New Zealand as both batting and bowling have not shown any outstanding performance on this tour but they will look to win this match and level the series with 2-2. This is the important match of the series and without playing at their full potential Kiwis will not win.
On the other hands, India bounces back strongly after suffering a rude shock in 2nd ODI and won the 3rd OSI math to make 2-1. Indian captain MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli showed played amazing innings to make India win Mohali match. India has chance to win the series by winning this 4th ODI in Ranchi which is also a hometown of Skipper Dhoni.
India will go with the same squad for the rest two ODI and only Suresh Raina being ruled out due to illness. Rahane has a good opportunity to solid his place in the ODI squad by performing in the ODI series against New Zealand because regular opener Shikhar Dhawan and new KL Rahul ruled out due to injuries. Now let’s take a look at India vs New Zealand 4th ODI match prediction.
