Top picks for IND vs NZ Dream11 Prediction

NZ:

Kane Williamson:
Skipper Williamson is one of the best players in world cricket and scored attacking fifty from just 26 balls in the first T20I and 95-run knock in the third match. He is likely to get fit to play tomorrow.

Colin Munro:
He has a good record in this format and can score at a blistering strike rate. He scored 59, 26,14, and 64 runs in four matches and can be an excellent pick in the IND vs NZ Dream11 team.

Martin Guptill:
Opener Guptill has the talent and experience to anchor big innings but has failed to perform in recent times. He scored 30,33 and 31 runs in the first three matches and also played well in the last domestic T20 tournament. He will hope to fire big in the previous T20I encounter of the series.

Ross Taylor:
He has performed exceptionally well from the past two years and is in good form. He will be the key in the middle order for New Zealand and proved it in the first match scoring 54 runs at a strike rate of 200 and also got started in remaining games. The only concern with Taylor is that he is coming to bat quite down the order.

Tim Siefert:
He was promoted in the last match to one down and performed straight away, scoring 57 runs from 39 balls.

Mitchell Santner:
He is an attacking lower-order batsman and witty spinner. He can find it difficult to trouble quality Indian batsmen and went for plenty in the first match but bowled well in the remaining games.

Tim Southee:
Southee is an experienced pacer and can also score quick runs with the bat. He will lead the pace attack of Kiwis and took two crucial scalps in the second match but failed in both the super overs.

Ish Sodhi:
Right-Arm leg break bowler Sodhi has taken six scalps till now in the series at a good economy and can fancy the spin-friendly conditions tomorrow.

Hamish Bennett:
He was the highest wicket-taker in the Dream11 Super Smash 2019-20, taking 17 wickets in 11 matches and took three and two wicket-haul in the last two games.

IND:

Virat Kohli:
The world No.1 Batsmen in T20I, Virat, can bat at one down and can destroy any bowling line-up if he is set and gets going. He will be a must-pick in NZ vs IND Dream11 team if not rested and scored brilliant knocks of 45 and 38 runs in the first and third T20I.

Rohit Sharma:
He can make a comeback tomorrow and must be tried in small leagues if playing. He was at his attacking best In the third match scoring 65 runs from 40 balls along with match-winning cameo in the super over.

Lokesh Rahul:
He will open the innings and also keep the wickets. His recent form is excellent and scored 56,57, 27, and 39 runs in four matches this series.

Shreyas Iyer:
He has immense talent and scored 58 and 44 runs in the first two matches. Iyer can play as per the situation of the game for his team but was unable in the last two games.

Jasprit Bumrah:
He is one of the world’s best pacers and can utilize the conditions to perfection in New Zealand. He took one scalp each in the three out of four matches.

Sanju Samson:
He will open for the visitors and will be eager to prove his talent in the international arena in limited chances.

Shivam Dube:
Talented youngster Dube is an attacking batsman and handy medium-pacer. He took one scalp each and scored quick 13, and 8* runs in the first two matches but failed in the other T20I’s.

Yuzvendra Chahal:
Wicket-taking leggie Chahal can destroy Kiwi Line-up single-handedly if the pitch suits him. He took three scalps till now but will be a risky pick in your fantasy team.

Shardul Thakur:
He is an average pacer and lower-order hitter. He took two scalps and scored crucial 20 runs in the last match.
