New Zealand vs India
1st ODI
Seddon Park, Hamilton

NZ vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction: 

The big news is that Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the ODI and Test series, which paves way for Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw to open for the first time in ODIs. The Kiwis will be missing their star man Kane Williamson, which means Tom Latham will take up dual duties of keeping and leading the side. Last time these two sides met in New Zealand for an ODI series, India won 4-1, which again looks a likely outcome.

Weather report:

Weather conditions in Hamilton were a bit rainy on Tuesday, but that is not expected to continue on Wednesday. The conditions are lot more pleasant and the temperatures could range from 20-24 degrees.

Pitch report:

Once again, a lot of runs are expected in Hamilton. Just a few days ago, both sides played the first of two super-overs in Hamilton. This is a good batting deck and anything less than 300 would be difficult to defend.

Probable Playing XIs:

New Zealand

Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Mark Chapman, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (C & WK), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett.


Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

NZ vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Picks:

New Zealand

Ross Taylor: Ross Taylor is the only person in this lineup who can pose a very strong challenge to the Indians in terms of experience and explosive firepower. It is highly imperative he does a good job in the absence of Kane Williamson.

Tom Latham: One of the better players of spin in their lineup, Tom Latham could be a punt pick in your side. He can provide a solid hand if anyone’s going all guns blazing in their explosive batting lineup.


Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli is closing on more greatness, just 208 runs short of 12,000 ODI runs. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if he gets there by the end of this series. He scored 541 runs at an average of 67.62 in his last 10 games, just doing what he usually does.

Jasprit Bumrah: One of the best bowlers in the world right now, it is needless to say that Bumrah will be India’s main man once again. He found a great partner in Mohammed Shami and the duo are doing a fantastic job. He has picked up 22 wickets in his last 15 games under an economy of 4.5.
