Dream11: West Indies vs New Zealand 3rd T20

3rd January 2017. The 3rd and final T20i between NZ and WI will be played at Bay Oval, Mount Maynganui. Although, the wicket will be favouring the batsman and we will be expecting it to be a high scoring game but, there is also a chance of this match getting washed out. The weather forecast tells us that we can expect rain. So, as fantasy cricket participants and as a cricket fan we can only pray that this does not happen.

Now, coming to the teams. We can see some changes in both of the teams. For New Zealand T. Boult is in squad so we can expect him to play, what else we will be expecting is, that there will be only one change and T. boult will replace one of the pace bowlers. But, being a sports person myself and a dream 11 participant for so long, i have some prediction that, they might give rest to more than one player because of their upcoming series against Pakistan. Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry are in squad against Pakistan and they havn’t played any of the 2 T20s yet. So, my personal believe is that they might give a chance to any of these two along with Trent Boult or maybe all there of them get a chance in final T20.  Rance and Sodhi are not in the squad against Pakistan, so I personally think one of them should be out or it could be that both of them will be out to make space for Ferguson, Matt Henry and since Tim Southee has already played 2 T20s, he might also get some rest. You can’t really tell but there could be changes like that, I can not tell you for sure. It is just my prediction but be prepared for that.

 

Now Let me share the Squad for both the teams.

SQUAD :

NEW ZEALAND :

  1. Martin Guptill
  2. Colin Munro
  3. Kane Williamson (c)
  4. Glenn Phillips
  5. Tom Bruce
  6. Mitchell Santner  << ( These 6 are safe once)
  7. Anaru Kitchen
  8. Doug Bracewell*
  9. Ish Sodhi*
  10. Tim Southee*
  11. Trent Boult*
  12. Lockie Ferguson*
  13. Matt Henry*
  14. Seth Rance*

WEST INDIES:

  1. Chadwick Walton
  2. Chris Gayle
  3. Andre Fletcher
  4. Carlos Brathwaite (c)
  5. Jason Mohammed
  6. Rovman Powell
  7. Samuel Badree
  8. Ashley Nurse
  9. Kesrick Williams
  10. Shai Hope
  11. Rayad Emrit
  12. Sheldon Cottrell
  13. Jerome Taylor

Now coming to Playing 11 s. Well, I have already mentioned that there could be as many as 3 changes or just one. Trent Boult is coming I can tell you that because New Zealand has done what they have said so far. They said No williamson in first game… and Williamson rested. Then they said No Taylor in second game… Taylor rested and Williamson got back. Just like that, they have said Yes to Boult ! that means we can expect him to play in today’s game. So keeping that in mind try to pick those players who are safe in your dream team as for me. I will not be working hard on this game as I hate it when rain ruins my hard work.

My dream team:

I will post here as soon as I make one. Most probably I would pick Munro as my captain as he seems to be in great form. In bowlers, it’s a tough choice but I would pick Boult, Southee*, and one from West Indies.
