NZ Playing 11 for New Zealand vs Ireland, 1st ODI; 3 Best Fantasy Cricket Picks for Dream11 Team Prediction


NZ Playing 11: New Zealand is all set to commence their trip to Ireland with a 3-match ODI series. The first of the three ODIs will be played tomorrow i.e., on 10th July at 3:15 PM IST at Dublin (Malahide).

The three ODIs will be played on 10th, 12th, and 15th of July followed by a 3 match T20I series on 18th, 20th, and 22nd July in Belfast. New Zealand will be without the services of their skipper Kane Williamson and other preferable players like Tim Southee, Devon Conway, and Trent Boult have been left out due “commitment to player wellbeing.” What will be New Zealand’s eleven in the first ODI? Let’s take a look.
