NZ-A vs IN-A Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: India A wrap up their visit of New Zealand today when they step out for the culminating test match.
A finely contested and levelly matched battle between New Zealand A and India A wraps up proceedings starting today with the two units clashing heads for the final time in the arena. After the series opener of the ongoing two match test series was drawn, either side will be looking to get an elusive win in its kitty today and with it seal the series.
With the first encounter being contested on level ground, today’s match promises to be an intoxicating brew as well. New Zealand were clearly he dominant side on the opening couple of days, bundling India for a measly 216 and raking up 562-7 themselves before the visitors managed to claw their way back into the encounter and ensure the match ended in a draw.
Today’s encounter holds immense ramifications for both the sdes with a slew of worldclass performers being imbedded in either unit. With the test series between New Zealand and India looming, several players set to ply their skill set in that series will be stepping out to the middle today in a bid to acclimatise themselves with the conditions and get much needed match practice in their kitty.
The previous encounter ended in a draw but New Zealand clearly came out on top with a clinical display in all the departments of the game. However with India laden with myriad performers for this tie, the visitors will hit back hard today in a tie we envision ending in a draw with little to separate the two units.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A surface to come out and field first on, the wicket will have something in it for everyone across the course of the clash. The quicks will thrive on the opening day before the surface begins to settle in and allow extremely easy to the eye strokeplay to come in place.

NZ-A vs IN-A Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 196 runs in his kitty the last time around, New Zealand’s Dane Cleaver becomes a regulation pick for us for this occasion. The wicket-keeper came up with a tenacious performance, one which saw him both hold the fort from one end and dispatch the ball to all parts of the ground with ease.

Shubman Gill scored a double century in the second innings of the previous tie, one which sees us make him the first player to be imbedded in our side from the Indian contingent for the encounter. We are also getting in stalwart Cheteshwar Pujara, someone who has an incredible 5,740 runs in the test arena and is coming into this clash in the wake of a successful Ranji Trophy campaign.
Elsewhere, the top scorer in this New Zealand side with over 6,000 runs in the longest format of the game, Hamish Rutherford becomes our first pick from the home unit. He’s paired up by Will Young with the bat having accrued 1,545 runs in the cricketing fraternity.
NZ-A vs IN-A Dream11 All-Rounders
One of India’s most sublime performers in the previous tie, Hanuma Vihari becomes an instant pick for us for this outing. He scored a half-century in the first innings before following it up with a 100 in the ensuing stage, a performance which paid testament to the riveting nature of skill set he’s equipped with in his artillery.
Ravichandran Ashwin is being brought in as well with his spin set to perturb the Black Caps while from the home side we are venturing in with Colin McConchie. He put in a truly all-round display in the foregone affair with a 50 and 3 wickets, an enterprising performance to make her our lone pick from the side.
NZ-A vs IN-A Dream11 Bowling Order
Ish Sodhi has snared 242 wickets in test cricket and after having earlier disrupted the Indians in the T20 series, the legspinner becomes an instant pick for us from the home setup for this tie. Michael Rae will come in as well from the setup while from India we’ll be moving in with new ball operator Mohammed Siraj who is bound to get the ball to ominously deviate given the heavy cloud cover.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Shubhman Gill will be our captain for this encounter while Vihari is our vice-captain.
