NZ Vs IND Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Series sweep within the Black Caps’ sights as they scour for redemption today.
From being cleaned out 5-0 in the T20 series to striking back to seal the three match ODI series 2-0. This New Zealand side has shown why it endears to ardent supporters of the game on the global stage with the fight, character and resolve prevelant in its ranks making for luscious showing.
It’s something which the side brought to the fore as they stepped out for the ODI series against India. They were undeterred despite their debacle in the T20 series, looking to hit back and hit back hard as they traversed for salvation in a bid to avenge their sordid showing in the shortest format of the game.
And their vigour and reslliance translated into a series win for them with the side taking an unassailable lead the last time around. Curbing India’s run chase at 251, the 22 run win would have massively pleased the Black Caps owing to the clinical manner it came about in as they outshone India in all departments of the game.
For the Indians meanwhile, the way the series has shaped up till now would be hard to digest. Considered overwhelming favourites to now looking to save themselves from the embarrassment of a 3-0 rout, the narrative has turned on its head in the same of a week for the gargantuan Asian unit as they step out today looking to restore semblance in their ranks.
New Zealand have completely turned fortunes around in the 50 over format and will make for an extremely dicey opposition for the Indians today as well. We envision them to win this one, not only owing to the immense momentum flowing through their side but the fact that a shuffled around Indian side will find it difficult to contain such a rampant home side.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A wicket which will keep everyone interested as was seen in the T20 clash contested here between these two sides, the team winning the toss should be looking to step out and bat first today. The wicket does tend to peter off as the match runs down its course, a discourse which makes strokeplay a little tricky.

NZ Vs IND Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
KL Rahul failed the last time around however that doesn’t stop us from keeping him in our Dream 11 side for this forthcoming clash. He scored a half-century in the series opener and has been one of India’s most sublime bat this entire series.
We’ll be moving in with Tom Latham from New Zealand as well with the side’s captain having an affinity to the Indian side, one he’s massively flourished against to amass a bagful of 669 runs in 14 encounters against them.
NZ Vs IND Dream11 Batsmen
New Zealand’s opener Martin Guptill showed why he’s held in such high esteem in the country’s cricketing arena. He scored 79 runs, a knock which looked set to be converted into 3 figures before an astounding runout brought an end to an imperious knock from his bat.
And someone who provided Guptill pinch perfect assistance was Henry Nicholls with the opener coming up with 41 runs as the two stitched together a pivotal 93 run stand for the opening wicket. Ross Taylor once again emerged as New Zealand’s match winner as the leading run scorer in the series followed up his 100 in the series opener with an unbeaten knock of 73 the last time around to see him wrap up ur trio of selections from the side.
From India meanwhile, the pick of captain Virat Kohli doesn’t need any explaining. He has a staggering1,369 runs in 25 encounters against the hosts, numbers which allude to Kohli’s genius and his worldclass ability. With a 100 in the series opener and 52 runs in the second ODI, Shreyas Iyer comes in as well as we opt for a one-two from the land of the Indian unit.
NZ Vs IND Dream11 All-Rounders
After 55 runs and the 1 wicket to go with it the last time around, Jadeja lured us but we have decided to veer clear of him. His captain talked about the side according chances to lesser played players in this culminating encounter, something which puts Jadeja’s spot at risk to see us leave him out.
We have instead moved in with Colin de Grandhomme from New Zealand after the all-rounder struck twice with the ball in the bygone encounter between the two side.
NZ Vs IND Dream11 Bowling Order
Coming in to replace Yadav in the bygone fixture, Yuzvendra Chahal showed why he’s India’s frontline spinner at the moment. He snare 3 wickets with his air, rotations and trajectory inciting New Zealand’s bats to go into false shots.
Navdeep Saini might have gone wicketless in the second ODI however he ended up giving away just 48 runs in 10 overs, umbers which allude to how his wicket to wicket line and length kept New Zealand under wraps. Also, with 45 runs with the bat, he showcased a side of his game yet to be revelled him to make him sublime value for the encounter.
Both Bumrah and Shami haven’t flourished this series and with their hefty price tag, we have decided to leave them out. From the home setup meanwhile, Kyle Jamieson is brought in by us given the astute 2-42 figures he returned with the last time around along with his 25 run cameo with the bat.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kohli hardly fails twice in a row and will retain his spot as our side’s captain while the leading run getter in the series, Taylor is our vice-captain.
