India vs New Zealand 1st Test: IND vs NZ Dream11 Team, Playing XI, Fantasy Cricket Tips
After six long years, India and New Zealand lock horns in a Test series in the Kiwi Land. The visiting team has an onerous task but their bowling attack is one of the best and the pressure will be on the home team to counter the Indian pacers.
New Zealand are yet to lose a Test match at their home for almost two years now and they will back themselves to continue their streak against India as well. They did lose T20I series 0-5 but made a comeback in the ODIs and whitewashed Men in Blue in the three-match series.
Wind will play a big role in Wellington and pacers will enjoy bowling here. Expect both the teams to go without a frontline spinner in the playing XI.
Here is the likely playing XI of both the teams
Captain Virat Kohli dropped big hint abut playing XI and almost confirmed that Prithvi Shaw and Ishant Sharma would be playing the opening Test. This means that Shubman Gill will continue to sit out. With Ishant fit, Navdeep Saini and Umesh Yadav are confirmed to sit out as well.
Ravindra Jadeja is expected to be preferred over R Ashwin while Hanuma Vihari also looks set to play the opening Test. No doubts here, Wriddhiman Saha will continue to keep wickets.
Likely playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami
The home team suffered a big blow as they will be without the services of key pacer Neil Wagner. They have called up Matt Henry as his replacement but he isn’t expected to play. Kyle Jamieson should be making his Test debut tomorrow.
Likely playing XI: Tom Blundell, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, Daryl Mitchell, Kyle Jamieson, Trent Boult, Tim Southee
My dream11 team for IND vs NZ 1st Test:
Prithvi Shaw (Captain), Tom Blundell, Kane Williamson (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, Hanuma Vihari, BJ Watling, Colin de Grandhomme, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson
