Prediction of NZ vs Ban Toss
Out of the last eleven in McLean Park, seven ODIs (one of the three most played recently) have been completed. Since the pitch of the field gets better for batting during the second half of the game, therefore, the team that won the toss here on Wednesday is likely to bowl first.
