Squads to pick from
India’s Predicted XI
New Zealand’s Predicted XI
Tim Seifert’s single-handed heroics off 84 in 43 deliveries in the first T20I at Seddon Park makes him one of the ideal fit for the wicket-keeper’s slot for the coming feud. Also, he was instrumental in affecting a couple dismissals when behind the stumps which furthermore makes him a concrete induction for the coming feud.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are definite picks for the Fantasy XI troop taking into account their riveting numbers in the T20Is wherein they have garnered run tallies of 2,238 and 1,261 runs respectively.
For the third and final spot, I’d suggest vouching in for Shubman Gill as the upcoming contest could be anticipated to be a ground-breaking moment in his white-ball career.

Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson’s mind-boggling figures of 3/17 and 2/22 respectively in the first T20I against India makes the duo a vital inclusion for the must-win game at Auckland.
Ish Sodhi too had delivered an economical performance as he winded up with a figure of 2/26 in his 3 overs of play. Thus, one could consider placing their bets into the leg-spinner for the win-o-win contest as well.
Among the Indian bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar could be given a fair chance to make up for the faltered performance in the previous contest at Wellington. The 29-year-old’s experience of 34 T20Is wherein he has affected 33 dismissals whilst averaging 24.75 could make him a worthwhile inclusion for IND vs NZ 2nd T20 Dream11.
As a final pick for the Fantasy XI, I’d suggest going in for Kuldeep Yadav with regards to his stupendous exhibitions in the T20Is wherein he has been an active participant behind 33 dismissals in 17 appearances.
For the all-rounder’s positions, I’d suggest opting in for the duo of Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya on account of their destruction laying prowess in the shortest format of the game. While the former is proficient in rendering unplayable arm ball deliveries, the latter on the other hand has an equally enthralling command in both batting and bowling which eventually makes the duo a must select for the coming duel.
