Mitchell Santner could be a great differential for your NZ vs NAM Dream11 teams. He is very economical and the Sharjah pitch will benefit him. He has 61 wickets in 54 games at an economy of 7.4.
David Wiese is a must-have for your fantasy teams. He is one of the highest points scorers in the tournament. Wiese has 297 runs and 32 wickets in 29 matches.

Sharjah has a slow surface where run-scoring is difficult. Timing the ball has not been easy. Batters should make the most of powerplay overs and the short boundaries. Spinners will get assistance as the match progresses. 150-160 should be a winning total on this ground. The team winning the toss might elect to field first.
If NZ bats first: 160-170
If NAM bats first: 130-140
Sharjah will have clear blue skies and a bright sunny day ahead. The temperature in the early morning hours is around 23-24 deg C and there is haze or light mist. It will gradually heat up, the haze will clear up and the maximum temperature by midday will be 32 deg C by 01:00 PM. As the match starts, it is going to be 31 degrees reducing to 30 degrees by the end. However with the sun shining hard, light winds, and humidity in the range of 40-50 %, it will feel like 35-36 degrees. The playing conditions will therefore continue to be tough in the afternoon hours.
