NZ Playing 11 for England vs New Zealand, 1st Test, Player stats for Today’s Dream11 Team Prediction


NZ Playing 11: New Zealand are the defending WTC champions. They were unbeatable in the previous cycle, also largely helped by the luck where they got to play just one away series against a poor Sri Lankan team but have already lost a game to Bangladesh in their home and lost a game to India in India in this cycle which has put them in a really tricky situation to say the least. These are favourable conditions for them and England are not a great test side which should help New Zealand to gain maximum points in this series and strengthen their position in the WTC points table.
