New Zealand(NZ) will lock horns with India(IND) in the first fixture of the T20I series at Sky Stadium, Wellington. New Zealand topped the Group 1 points table in the T20 WC 2022 but failed to go past Pakistan in the semi-final of T20 WC 2022. They will be without the services of their key players like Trent Boult and Martin Guptill, and the onus will be on Tim Southee and Glenn Phillips. India, on the other hand, were at the pole position in Group 2, but unfortunately lost the semi-final game against England. India’s top three batters, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli have been rested for this series. The Men in Blue will be captained by Hardik Pandya and will rely on the contributions of Suryakumar Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Player Picks


Suryakumar Yadav IND | BAT

Mr. 360, Suryakumar Yadav mustered 239 runs in six outings of T20 WC 2022 at a lavish strike rate of 189.68, with three fifties, and is the best pick for this game.


Glenn Phillips NZ | WK

Phillips emerged as the top batter of New Zealand in T20 World Cup 2022 with 201 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 158.26, while registering a century as well.


Devon Conway NZ | BAT

Avoid Having These Players In Your Fantasy Sports Team


James Neesham


Neesham has not been at his best with his contribution to the lower middle order and should be avoided. In his last five innings, Neesham has scored only 42 runs at an average of 14.


Harshal Patel


He did not feature in any of the T20 World Cup games and has been rather average with his wicket-taking abilities. In the last five T20I games, Patel has scalped only three wickets.
