AU-Y vs NZ-Y Dream11 Team: With incessant rain ending the first match without a result, Australia and New Zealand look to get the series underway on Sunday
With rain playing havoc in the opening match of the four match series on Saturday, spoiling what was a finely poised match; Australia U19 and New Zealand U19 now turn their attentions to Sunday. The second match is as many days in what is a congested scheduled for two of the finest sides at the young setup has all the ingredients in place for being a thriller.
The first match yesterday saw Australia step out to bat first and put on what was an extremely healthy score of 269-7 with their entire batting order stepping up to contribute. Navigating past an early slump as they lost two quick wickets inside the first powerplay to sit on 30-2, two of their most promising bats came to the fore to showcase why the duo is held in such reverence.
Mackenzie Harvey (55) and Olivier Davis (58) stitched together the finest of stands for the third wicket with the two showing why they are heavily touted as two of the most pristine batsmen in the international circuit at the U19 stage at the moment. Paired with important cameos from the ensuing batsmen, Australia put on more than enough runs on the scoreboard before rain decided to curtail proceedings early into the Black Caps innings.
While the Australia batting effort was a fine one, the New Zealand bowling effort did extremely level to stay on course with their opponents across the 50 overs. They managed to keep an extremely dangerous Australia batting line-up well under control with the entire bowling unit delivering a well controlled and tight performance in tandem.
Given the flawless cricket both the sides played in the opening match, this match is bound to be an edge of the seat thriller. We are continuing going to stick by Australia as the winner due to the composure they showed despite suffering a double blow in the opening match and the immense plethora of instrumental batters in their unit.
Wicket-Keeper for AU-Y vs NZ-Y Dream11
He ended up making his way back to the pavilion for just the four runs but Patrick Rowe is a far better player than that. We see him scoring big today and rectifying on the error he was guilty of yesterday.
Batsmen for AU-Y vs NZ-Y Dream11
His 43 ball 58 was a complete testament to the fearless brand of cricket Oliver Davies loves to play and there was no hesitation in making him the first pick of our batting line-up. Unfazed by any bowling line-up in the world, the middle-order bat always relies on his clean hitting strengths to pile the pressure on the bowlers and we see him thwarting New Zealand’s bowling line-up once again.
Mackenzie Harvey becomes the next player to come in here along with Sam Fanning given the way he waged a lone battle in the beginning despite losing partners at the other end.
From New Zealand we have opted for lower middle-order bat Tim Pringle only due to the reason that he came onto get a bowl as well. He’s a wonderful addition as a batsman and is being paired up by opener Ollie White.
All-Rounders for AU-Y vs NZ-Y Dream11
Smacking the ball cleanly to the stands in the death overs makes Damien Burrgage instant pick for us. His 34 run innings was the perfect way to close out Australia’s effort on the day, taking them past the symbolic milestone of 250 and its this power packed strokeplay of his which sees him come into our side.
Spearhead Kristian Clarke comes in from New Zealand after having Australia’s batters flummoxed with his articulate line and length.
Bowling Order for AU-Y vs NZ-Y Dream11
Tanveer Sinha is another highly anticipated prospect in Australia’s squad, a legspinner who is touted to keep alive what is a dying brand of spinners in the team at the moment. He along with Lam Scott form the two man partnership for Australia here with us seeing them making things frenetic for New Zealand.
From New Zealand we once again opt for Rhys Mariu to complete our team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Harvey continues to captain our side yet again with Olivier becoming the vice-captain.
