India clinched the T20I series 1-0 with two games getting washed up. But New Zealand made a comeback and won the first ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. With the second ODI getting abandoned, the Kane Williamson-led side stand a chance to win the ODI series. However, the Shikhar Dhawan-led team will also be hoping for a comeback and to avoid a series defeat. India lacked potency in bowling and that cost them the first match. Hence, the Men in Blue will come up with a better plan to stop the likes of Williamson and Latham.
As the second ODI got washed away, we will consider the performances from the first ODI. From India, Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar, and Umran Malik were the top performers. While Dhawan, Gill, and Iyer scored half-centuries, Sundar struck at a strike rate of 231.25. Malik bagged two wickets in ten overs. Although there was not much play possible in the second ODI, Gill starred in the 12 overs India played. Hence, he becomes a good choice for the fantasy team.
From the New Zealand camp, Kane Williamson and Tom Latham were among the runs. Meanwhile, Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson bagged three wickets each. So, these four players can be included in the fantasy XI as they have been proven performers for New Zealand. Mitchell Santner can be another good option to have from the New Zealand camp.
