Batsman in any cricket game can be a key component of how a team performs in a particular series. We recently saw that the Indian team had a couple of batting collapses in the world cup against New Zealand and Pakistan which saw them bowing out of the tournament and it was also the case with New Zealand who had a slack start in the final as a batting unit which cost them. This series will see the Indian and New Zealand team miss two very important batsmen in their ranks in the form of Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson. Both of these batsmen are prolific run getters not just for their teams but also point collectors in the fantasy game. In the India vs New Zealand series this time around, we are going to back the top order batsmen for the dream 11 prediction because it is these batsmen who are often doing the job for their teams particularly on the flatter pitches which make them prime candidates for best selections so for this prediction here, we will go in for 3 opening batsmen
Rohit has been a stalwart of Indian batting for the last decade or so. He has cemented his position as one of the players who will often be known as one of the best players to have played for the Indian team particularly one of the best openers to have played in the game. He is one of those players who are as pleasing to the eye as they are consistent and there is no denying the fact that on his day, he can take an opposition apart quite comfortably. He is also now the captain of the T20 team and that will only boost his confidence to do very well in the coming games. This series will be played on the flattest of decks which will suit his style of play and that would mean that a lot of runs will continue flowing from his blade.
Guptill is a player who has over the years stamped his authority on the NZ cricket as an opening batsman. He is coming off a good world cup however it was his 28 of 35 that cost them heavily in the finals of the world cup. He was back in form in the first game though and it is going to be a task for the Indian bowlers to contain him when he is on song. This time around you would also expect them to earn those points for you if he is made captain in the dream 11 team. He should be in the team come what may though as he usually strikes at a good rate too.
Rahul is a batsman who can take the game away from the opposition in the blink of an eye and can easily take it to the opposition. This is the time to make a difference for him as he is now a settled player and is looking forward to being the player who would be taking the opposition by storm for a few years now. He can at his peak have a chance of winning 2 world cups for his team and he will surely be a key component of the Indian team here. He should be backed in the Dream 11 team too as he scores his runs quick and usually scores big.
These could be the players whom you would back in the coming games.
