India and New Zealand will lock horns in the 1st Semi-Final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on July 9 at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. Keep reading to find out Dream 11 fantasy cricket tips and IND vs NZ Dream 11 team for 1st Semi-Final.
The script was well in place and Australia was in line to play against New Zealand in the first semi-final. But the defending champions lost the last league game against South Africa. As a result, India moved up to the No.1 spot and the Men in Blue will now take on the Kiwis. While Virat Kohli and his men have been the most consistent team of the tournament, Kane Williamson & Co. lost the plot by losing the last 3 matches.
The momentum lies with India but anything can happen on a big day. While India has been in such situations before and they know how to handle the pressure, the Kiwis always punch above their weight. They keep making it to the semi-finals of ICC events remaining under the radar. It’s going to be about who handles the pressure better as both teams possess tremendous skills. Check out my best dream 11 tips for India vs New Zealand Semi-Final 1.

Dream 11 Fantasy cricket tips for India vs New Zealand
Wicketkeeper for IND vs NZ Dream 11 Team Semi-Final 1
MS Dhoni hasn’t had much to do with the bat as the top order has been doing the bulk of the scoring. Rishabh Pant is now India’s No.4 and so, he will get a better opportunity to make an impact. Tom Latham, after a poor run in the tournament, managed to find some sort of form in the last game. Also, he is known to be a decent batsman against spin.
Captain / Vice-Captain for IND vs NZ Dream 11 Team Semi-Final 1
While it’s tempting to go for Rohit Sharma given the kind of form he is in, yet there is a feeling that the Indian skipper will stand up in the big games. Similarly, the captain of New Zealand – Kane Williamson will not only be leading the team, but he also has to guide the batting unit.
Batsmen for IND vs NZ Dream 11 Team Semi-Final 1
It’s impossible to leave out Rohit Sharma as he is going through the form of his life. Also, the two captains in the game will have to shoulder massive responsibilities of their respective batting line-ups.
All-rounders for IND vs NZ Dream 11 Team Semi-Final 1
Colin de Grandhomme has done a brilliant job for his side in crunch situations. He has scored quick runs and also bowled handy overs. But Hardik Pandya has taken his all-round game to a different level in the World Cup. More often than not, he is completing his full quota of overs with a decent economy and a handful of wickets. Plus, he plays those valuable cameos down the order.
Bowlers for IND vs NZ Dream 11 Team Semi-Final 1
Trent Boult is going to be the biggest threat for Indian batsmen as the incoming delivery has troubled the likes of Rohit and Rahul in the past. India’s Jasprit Bumrah, the No.1 bowler in the world, simply walks into the team. India would rely on the spin of Yuzvendra Chahal who has a good record against New Zealand.
