NZ vs AUS Dream11: The 5-match T20I series is all set for its ultimate decider and to witness this crunching game, Westpac Stadium in Wellington will play the host yet again. Australia held their nerves to register a scintillating win in the last T20I by 50 runs, even after setting a target of 157 runs.
Skipper Aaron Finch was on the money and played a lone hand to give the visitors something to defend. In reply, the hosts looked nowhere near reaching the target and were bundled out for a mere 106 in 18.5 overs. With the series evenly poised 2-2, we definitely have a mouthwatering contest up our sleeves. What fate prevails for both the teams? Well, we will have to wait and see.

Aaron Finch: The Aussie skipper has returned to form in grand style and has looked really impressive with two fifties on the trot. He has 161 runs fun the series so far, the most for any player. Once again, he would be a prized pick for this game.
Martin Guptill: The Blackcaps opener has scored 147 runs in his last three T20I outings and looking well equipped for yet another good knock. He is a great bet in the SL team for captain/vice-captain.
Devon Conway: The stylish left-hander with 147 runs in the series so far is the second leading run-getter in the series. A colossal pick in the fantasy teams for sure.
Ish Sodhi: having scalped 10 wickets in the series so far, the leggy is the leading wicket-taker and one of the brightest prospects in GL teams for captain/vice-captain.
Ashton Agar: Having scalped 8 wickets in the last two games, the left-arm spinner has finally got his mojo back. He could be a good bet for captain/vice-captain in both SL and GL teams.
Glenn Maxwell: The all-rounder has scalped 2 wickets and a blistering 71 in the series already. He could be a great bet in GL teams for captain/vice-captain
