New Zealand vs India
Eden Park, Auckland
February 8th, 2020
7.30 am IST
NZ vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
After an enthralling performance in the T20I series, the Indians were underwhelming with the ball and a couple of good performances from seasoned campaigners Ross Taylor and Tom Latham saw New Zealand take a 1-0 lead. The Kiwi contingent are high on confidence going into this fixture and seems like they finally got into the right zone. Virat Kohli and his men didn’t get a lot of things wrong, besides a few questionable additions in the XI. A fightback is definitely expected and it’ll be interesting to see how the Indians respond.
The weather conditions in Auckland will remain a bit cloudy throughout the day with no chance of rain. The temperatures could vary from 17-23 degrees with a humidity level of 67%.
Auckland is one of the nightmare places for bowlers, especially with the short boundaries. A lot of miss-hits will clear the ropes and we could see another 650-700 run flowing on the day.
Probable Playing XIs:
Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (C & WK), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Hamish Bennett, Kyle Jamieson.
Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah.
NZ vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
Ross Taylor: Indeed, class is permanent. Ross Taylor will perhaps go down as the greatest number 4 in ODI history and he added another feather to his amazing cap in the first ODI. His century took the Indians down and there’s no denying he can do that a few more times this series.
Tom Latham: Captaincy seems to be playing its part for Tom Latham, who fired in a brilliant half-century under pressure. He scored 197 runs coming in at number 5 in the last five matches.
Virat Kohli: For the first time in his career, Virat Kohli is having some serious issues playing leg-spin. He was cleaned up by a googly having scored a fifty, something that doesn’t happen often. He scored 558 runs at an average of 62 in his last 10 innings, which includes two hundreds against the West Indies.
Shreyas Iyer: Finally, Shreyas Iyer notched his first ODI hundred having struggled for so long to get there. He is a splendid batsman once he gets into the zone and could solve India’s number four issue for a good number of years to come.
