NZ v IND 2nd T20 Match Preview, Prediction. Playing XI and Fantasy Cricket Tips
Let’s Discuss Team News, Fantasy Tips and Playing 11 for NZ v IND 2nd T20.
Match: NZ v IND 2nd T20
Date: Sunday, January 26, 2020
Time: 12:20 PM IST
Venue: Eden Park, Auckland
The track here has always been a nightmare for the bowlers, just like we saw in the first match. Bowler like Jasprit Bumrah was also taken for cleaners by the Kiwis batsman, but Ross Taylor in the post-match press conference told that it is expected to slow down a bit as they will be playing consecutive matches at this ground so the used pitch might grip and turn a bit.
Wicket Keeper: KL Rahul will be the default and first-choice pick for the Fantasy Team. He has been in terrific touch in the first match (scoring 56 off 27). You can pick Tim Seifert in your Grand league team as if the Kiwi team goes off to a flier, he can push up the order.
Batsman: Rohit Sharma is expected to fire in this match as he missed out on the first match. It’s a great batting track and lots of sixes are expect from him. Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson will be the default pick for the team as both these are world-class players. The other suggestion that we would recommend is Martin Guptill. He has scored the most runs at this venue (the only player to score the most run at a single venue). So this can be his match
Allrounder: In the allrounder section, Colin de Grandhomme, Shivam Dube and Mitchell Santner will be the suggested pick from this section. You can pick any of 2 if you want to go with 5 batsmen and 3 bowler approach. Shivam Dube should be a default pick as he picked up a wicket and batted up the order. You can pick Mitchell Santner considering the pitch.
Bowlers: This pitch is expected to be a little bit on the slower side, so take the bowler considering this suggestion. Jasprit Bumrah for India and Hamish Bennett from New Zealand will be the default pick. I would recommend you to go with Yuzi Chahal instead of Shami but you can have Shami as well in your Fantasy Team.
