NZ vs BAN Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd T20I

Liton Das has scored only 10 runs in the last 2 matches and you can avoid him while making your Dream11 fantasy teams.


New Zealand will take on Bangladesh in the 3rd and final T20I of the series on Thursday. New Zealand has already registered their 7th series win by winning the first two matches of the series with still one game to be played. Despite the absence of main players, the Kiwis have performed really well with complete all-round performances. They would want to end the series and the summer with a win.

On the other hand, Bangladesh are on verge of another whitewash in this tour after getting smoked 3-0 by the hosts. After their terrible loss in the 1st T20I by 66 runs they came out well and did a decent job in the 2nd but rain spoiled the party for them in the middle and they eventually ended on the losing side by 28 runs (D/L method). With only one game left in the series, they look to end the tour on a winning note.

NZ vs BAN Top Picks for NZ vs BAN Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batsmen

Glenn Phillips was the player of the match in the 2nd T20I for his tremendous batting display in the middle. He scored an unbeaten 58* runs from 31 balls which included 5 fours and 2 sixes, and even picked up an important wicket of Mohammad Naim with the ball.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Afif Hussain was the top-run scorer in the 1st T20I for Bangladesh, scoring 45 runs from 33 balls but he got out for just 2 runs in the 2nd T20I. He is a reliable batter in the middle order for them.

Daryl Mitchell didn’t get the opportunity to bat in the series opener, but he was in some mood in the 2nd T20I and was batting well on 34* from 16 balls until the rain put a break to end his innings.
