IND vs NZ DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI

India vs New Zealand DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM | India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI | India tour of New Zealand, 2019

Mount Maunganui, January 28, Sunday at 07:30 AM IST

So, the scoreline reads 2-0 and the visitors are one step away from sealing the series. After failing to read the India spin duo- Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav's turns in the first game, the host New Zealand continue to struggle against them and will be interesting to watch them in tomorrow's game. barring Doug Bracewell's cameo of 57 from 46 deliveries, New Zealand's middle order was once again dismantled by the spinners.

Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Kedar Jadhav accounted for seven wickets again in the second ODI. While Bhuvaneshwar Kumar removed Martin Guptill to give India an early breakthrough, M Shami got rid of dangerous looking skipper Kane Williamson, who smashed him two consecutive sixes at the start of the over.

India skipper Virat Kohli would be eager for one more win as this will also be the final game for him on the tour. Kohli is being rested for last two ODIs and the T20I series that follows up. So, let's wait and watch if India seals the series before Kohli signs off or will New Zealand bounce back.

Form guide (most recent first)

New Zealand: L, L, W, W, W, L

India: W, W, W, W, L, W

Pitch Report:

Both the sides will reload at the same pitch for the third ODI, so expect the same outcome similar to the second ODI. A little more help for spinners in the track can be expected and as per weather reports, there are no chances of rain.

This IND vs NZ Dream11 prediction is high-risk but you may reap rewards if some assumptions come off. We advise you not to use these teams in small league contests.


Team 1: Let's bet on wrist spinners once again

Let's assume India bats first again with Virat Kohli playing an anchor role in setting the target and spin duo –  Kuldeep and Chahal at the rescue in defending the total. Kohli has been sent back in the forties on both the occasions and the stage is set for the skipper to sign-off the series.

Team 2: What if Kiwi's top order clicks off

When New Zealand visited India, they faced Yuzvendra and Chahal contrastingly well. This pitches in India offered more turns than the Bay Oval, but they are looking miserable against spin here. Maybe, the early jolts or the top order collapse can be one of the reasons for this. M Guptill, Kane Williamson, and R Taylor haven't faced enough spin this time and if they survive from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and M Shami, the script might look different.

Team 3: Potential match-winners

Leaving all the big guns behind, let's pick the potential match-winners. Kedar Jadhav increased India's scoring tempo in the last game with his quick 22 off 10 balls and also did superbly well in playing the part of a part-timer. Doug Bracewell's cameo of 55 runs showed that it wasn't that much hard for the Kiwis but a little more focus and patience is all that is required.

A 90's born who has witnessed Sachin becoming "The God", Dhoni becoming "The only Captain to have won all the ICC trophies" and Kohli turning into a "run-machine". Cricket is something I am crazy for and I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
