What are the Top Picks, players for Dream11, My11circle and MPL for NZ vs IND, 1st ODI?
Top Pick – Batter
Shubman Gill is highly regarded as the future opener for India in white-ball cricket. In 12 ODIs, he has scored 579 runs at an average of 57.9 which includes one century and three half-centuries.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Shardul Thakur is an asset when it comes to the 50-over format. He has the knack of picking wickets and can score quick runs down the order. In his 27 ODIs, he has picked up 39 wickets and scored 257 runs with a sole half-century.
Top Pick – Bowler
Arshdeep Singh is in the line to make his ODI debut. He always rose to the occasion under pressure situations in the T20Is. He is a genuine swing bowler and a major threat with the new cherry.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Tom Latham brings more solidarity in the middle for New Zealand. The 31-year-old southpaw has accumulated 3237 runs in 114 ODIs at an average of 34.8 with the highest score of 140*.
Kane Williamson’s record against India is phenomenal. In 25 ODIs, he has mustered 984 runs at an average of 39.36 and picked up 5 wickets as well.
What are the fantasy suggested teams for NZ vs IND, 1st ODI?
1. Tom Latham (c), Sanju Samson, Kane Williamson, Suryakumar Yadav, Finn Allen, Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Yuzvendra Chahal (vc), Arshdeep Singh
2. Tom Latham, Devon Conway, Shikhar Dhawan (vc), Kane Williamson (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Yuzvendra Chahal, Matt Henry, Arshdeep Singh
Kane Williamson and his men need to shift their focus towards the 50-over format. They have released experienced Trent Boult and Martin Guptill from their central contract which allows other players to grab the opportunity. Tom Latham is back in the squad and likely to don the gloves behind the stumps. Finn Allen will get an extended run for sure as he is a future opener for them. Tim Southee will spearhead the bowling attack that includes Lockie Ferguson, Adam Milne, and Matt Henry. They occupy the pole position in the ICC ODI rankings
India on the other are without their premier players and further provides an opportunity for the fringe players to showcase their talent. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the second-string side. Hardik Pandya who led Men in Blue in the T20Is has been rested. Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson who was impressive in the home series against South Africa will keep their places. Shubman Gill has fond memories of playing in New Zealand since he made his ODI debut here in 2019. Deepak Chahar who was in and out of the side due to injury also made a cut. They have lost their previous four ODIs against New Zealand and are looking to reduce the margin of defeats.
