India tour of New Zealand
Match 3: New Zealand vs India
Tuesday, February 11
Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui
NZ vs IND Dream11 Preview:
This will be the final ODI of this series. New Zealand have already won the series after two heroic performances – one chasing a mammoth 347 and another defending a modest total of 273 in a small ground. The Indian batting order has been absolutely clueless without Rohit Sharma at the top. Kohli too is not in the greatest form which makes India heavily reliant on Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. New Zealand have been riding on the top of magnificent batting Ross Taylor who has impressed in the absence of Kane Williamson. They will be looking to win the game and whitewash India to avenge for what happened in the T20 series. Kohli is a class player and he cannot be contained too long. An amazing battle awaits us tomorrow.
The first game was a belter and the second one was a slow paced pitch. The average score batting first here is 265 and the team batting first has won 5 times in 10 games. India have defeated New Zealand twice in 2 games at this venue.
The temperature is expected to be around 23 degrees with cloud cover which might influence the toss a bit. There is no chance for rain.
No injury updates yet.
Probable Playing XI:
Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Blundell, Tom Latham(w), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mark Chapman, Tim Southee, Kyle Jamieson, Hamish Bennett

NZ vs IND Top Dream11 Picks
Ross Taylor has made 182 runs in 2 games in this series and is yet to be dismissed by the Indians. He has been the difference between the two teams ever since the WC Semis and will be an important pick.
Kyle Jamieson the right arm tall pacer looked to trouble the batters a lot in his spell in the power play in the last game. He also almost got Kohli and took the wicket of Shaw with a peach. He will be an important budget pick.
Shreyas Iyer has been in terrific form and has made a hundred and a half century in this series. He has made 155 runs in 2 games.
KL Rahul, the stylish classy batsman is slowly finding his feet in his new role of batting at 5. Apart from that he will keep the wickets. He has made 92 runs so far in 2 games.
