New Zealand Team News

The team is coming to the series with a strong performance in last two series. As far as the New Zealand Team for 1st ODI is concerned not many changes are expected from the last ODI played against Srilanka.

  • The New Zealand team will see the return of Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner.

  • The top order will see familiar faces that include Martin Guptill and Colin Munro.

  • Tom Latham has also been in rich form recently.

  • Jimmy Neeshan who played a vital role in recent series will miss out because of a hamstring injury.

India Team News

In the top order, we expect no changes. But the top order is almost sealed. If India decides to play only one all-rounder Vijay Shanker may get the nod ahead of Ravindra Jadeja given that the conditions will be seamer friendly. Shubam Gill has been included in the squad for the series but the team may decide against playing a debutant because the first priority will be to win the series. Indian team doesn't have a great record in New Zealand.

  • The form of Shikhar Dhawan has been a concern.

  • Kedar Jhadav will most likely be once again seen in the middle order.

  • The major dilemma will be between Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav as both have performed well.

  • Chahal is most likely to get the preference if India decides to field only one spinner.

Key Points to note before picking your Dream11 Team For Ind Vs NZ

  • India will most probably pick the same playing eleven to that of the last ODI in Australia.

  • Yuzvendra Chahal made an impact in the deciding ODI.

  • Vijay Shanker also played the last ODI in Australia.

  • No changes expected in the top and middle order.

  • New Zealand has included Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner in the squad.

For the 1st ODI at Napier, it appears as though it would be a low scoring game. The average scores at the venue for both the 1st and 2nd innings are very low. The number also indicates that both captains would like to Bat first on the track and put runs on the board.
