India is a very settled side and has more depth than at any point in recent memory
India has won series against Australia which will give them a lot of motivation playing in New Zealand
Indian bowling unit has been exceptional in the past few series so that will be the main factor for India to win
The side winning the toss is almost certainly going to field first
