India tour of New Zealand 2019 | IND vs NZ Dream11 3rd T20I Match Prediction

India vs New Zealand Match Preview | Who Will Win Today Match

Hamilton, February 10, Sunday at 12:30 PM IST

So, the series is levelled 1-1 with the decider scheduled to be played at Seddon Park, Hamilton tomorrow noon. India showed characters this time and came more prepared and clear to register 7 wickets win after successfully chasing a decent total of 159 runs. It was special in many ways- the Men In Blue bounced back in style to register their first ever T20I win in New Zealand after facing a record 80-runs loss in the first T20I, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma surpassed Martin Guptill to become the highest run-scorer in the format, he also achieved the milestone of hitting 100 sixes in T20I and also produced the most 50+ scores in the format.

Well, with the third and final game scheduled for tomorrow, both the sides would be eager to secure a win and clinch the series. While it may come as a consolation prize for the Kiwis, Rohit Sharma and team is standing on the verge of writing history – a T20I series win against New Zealand in New Zealand.

As far as the changes are concerned, both the sides remained unchanged in the second encounter. While each bowler returned with a wicket in the second T20I, only Yuzvendra Chahal was the one in the visitors who was taken for granted. Chahal was the most expensive among the Indian bowlers and could be seen making way for Kuldeep Yadav. As far as the hosts are concerned, Daryl Mitchell has failed to grab the opportunity on both the occasions and might make way for Jimmy Neesham who has remained on the bench for both the games. Also, Kiwis have included pacer Blair Tickner for the last game and let’s see who makes way for him.

IND vs NZ Dream11 Team:

Fantasy picks from India –

Rohit Sharma (50 of 29 balls), Shikhar Dhawan (30 of 31) and Rishabh Pant (40* of 28) were amongst the run against the Kiwis in the second  innings and will be crucial in the decider too

MS Dhoni behind the wickets and in the middle order can be impactful

Pandya brothers will bring in the much-needed balance to the side with their abilities to contribute with both bat and ball. Krunal Pandya took 3 wickets and was chosen the player of the match in the last game.

In bowling, Bhuvaneshwar and Khaleel Ahmed were much better.

Fantasy Tip: Yuzvendra Chahal can make way for Kuldeep Yadav

Fantasy picks from New Zealand –

Colin de Grandhomme (50 of 28) and Ross Taylor (42 of 36) were the star performers for New Zealand

Tim Seifert and Colin Munro failed to provide a stable start in the second T20I

Kane Williamson didn’t last for long and will have to play an impactful inning this time

In bowling, everyone looked off colour. However, as per pitch conditions, Tim Southee, L Ferguson and Ish Sodhi will be crucial.

Fantasy tip: There’s an outside chance of Jimmy Neesham getting a game
