Dream11 Fantasy Team of India Vs New Zealand Warmup Match.
What the warm-up match affords India is the stupendous opportunity to nail down on the number 4 spot and their spinning options. Vijay Shankar, KL Rahul or Kedar Jadhav is still the biggest issue at hand alongside if Ravindra Jadeja will be imbedded into the playing XI in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.
New Zealand Full Squad.
Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Todd Astle, James Neesham, Tim Southee and Ross Taylor.
Possible XI: Munro, Guptill, Williamson (C), Taylor, Latham(WK), Neesham, Santner, Astle, Southee, Boult and Ferguson.
India Full Squad
Rohit Sharma(C), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedhar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill.
Possible XI: Rohit(C), Dhawan, Gill, Rayudu, Karthik/Dhoni (WK), Jadhav, Pandya, Kuldeep, Chahal, Khaleel/Shami, Bhuvaneshwar.
With their World Cup preparations succumbing to an Indian onslaught, the Kiwis are in dilemma as to how they are going to combat a near-perfect Indian team. Colin Munro and Martin Guptill aren’t in any sort of form but should play in this match. James Neesham and Todd Astle have been called in for the last two ODIs and should slot in for Henry Nicholls and Ish Sodhi to add more depth in the batting and bowling. Tim Southee should come back in for Doug Bracewell inevitably.
Shubman Gill is set to make his debut for India with Virat Kohli given a rest with the series wrapped up. Rohit Sharma will captain India, who are hopeful of MS Dhoni’s return to the side from injury. Opportunities could be given to Khaleel or Siraj considering Shami’s workload over the last few months.
Captain: Kane Williamson is a class player and is one to rise to the occasion when necessary. Williamson along with Shikhar Dhawan are great options to go for.
Wicket-keeper: Tom Latham is the preferred choice with uncertainty over MS Dhoni’s fitness. Inspite of the conundrum, Latham defied the spin threat of Kuldeep and Chahal and will be key once again.
Batsmen: Either or both of Rohit Sharma or Shikhar Dhawan would be sufficient with both of them in sublime form in the previous ODIs. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are the best players of spin in the New Zealand side and are useful picks in the fantasy side.
All-rounders: Hardik Pandya and Mitchell Santner are the ideal choices for the allrounder slot. Pandya was sharp with his bowling and fielding and would be one of Rohit’s go-to bowlers at Hamilton.
Bowlers: Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson have been in good form for the Kiwis over the past few months and are good picks to go with alongside Kuldeep Yadav and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
Fantasy Suggestion #1st: Tom Latham (WK), Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Rohit Sharma, Colin Munro, Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell Santner, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson. Captain: Kane Williamson.
Pitch Report: The Oval is a venue blessed with a rich sporting history, which includes playing host to the first Test match on English soil, a game in which WG Grace scored a century in England’s win against Australia in 1880. Significantly it was at The Oval that the legend of the Ashes was born and the great Sir Donald Bradman played his final Test innings at the ground.
