Dream 11 Fantasy cricket tips for India vs New Zealand
Wicketkeeper for IND vs NZ 1st Test Dream11 Team
Wriddhiman Saha is a certainty in the Indian line-up as Rishabh Pant has been rested. Saha will be playing for India after a long time. Many regard him as the best wicketkeeper in the longest format. Keeping for the spinners is his speciality. Plus, he can be a handy batsman down the order.
Captain / Vice-Captain for IND vs NZ 1st Test Dream11 Team
Test cricket returns to India and all the talks would be centred around Ravichandran Ashwin. His numbers in India are at a different level. India, despite not having some of the big names, would still be the favourites courtesy of the spin threat that Ashwin possesses. Kane Williamson had opted out of the T20I series to prepare for the Test matches. He would be the most crucial batsman for New Zealand.
Batsmen for IND vs NZ 1st Test Dream11 Team
In the absence of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, the onus of India’s batting would be on Cheteshwar Pujara. Shubman Gill has a chance of performing and cementing his place in the side. Just like Williamson, Ross Taylor is going to be an important batsman for the Kiwis.
All-rounders for IND vs NZ 1st Test Dream11 Team
After not featuring in the T20Is, Ravindra Jadeja is back for the Tests. In India, he along with Ravichandran Ashwin are the biggest threats for any opposition. Both are great spinners and capable batsmen too. Mitchell Santner would play a major role for the Kiwis as he will be the lead spinner.
Bowlers for IND vs NZ 1st Test Dream11 Team
Umesh Yadav did well in the Test series in England. Now, he would be playing in India where he has the best record. The pacer flourishes when there is reverse swing and he would expect to extract that with the SG ball. Tim Southee is going to be the lead pacer in the absence of Trent Boult. Neil Wagner would be a bowler to keep an eye as he could extract reverse swing.
