After bowing out of the T20 World Cup post defeat in the semifinals, India and New Zealand will now take on each other in a white-ball series that starts with three T20Is. The first of which will take place on Friday. As both teams erred in the knockout stage of an ICC tournament yet again, the focus will be on working on the grey areas. Both teams have selected strong squads. However, India will be without their regular captain and a few more regular players. It will be interesting to see how Hardik leads the team in a full-fledged series. 

Weather Report


Pitch Report



There were a handful of good performances from players of both teams at the T20 World Cup and with similar sort of conditions, these players are expected to carry their good form to the series as well. Finn Allen and Glenn Phillips are two batters from New Zealand who are expected to score big and quickly. Daryl Mitchell can also be a good option to have in the fantasy team. From New Zealand’s bowling options, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, and Ish Sodhi will be expected to leave an impact. Hence, they become good options to have in the fantasy XI. 

From the Indian camp, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Arshdeep Singh, and Yuzvendra Chahal can be included in the team considering their recent performances. Shubman Gill can be that X-factor and can fetch valuable points. Shreyas Iyer has also got good numbers in New Zealand. So, having him in the team can also be a good option.
