Expecting another cameo from MSD :eyedance:

 

Quote

 

New Zealand (likely) 1 Tim Seifert (wk), 2 Colin Munro, 3 Kane Williamson (capt.), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Daryl Mitchell, 6 James Neesham/ Colin de Grandhomme, 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Scott Kuggeleijn, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Ish Sodhi, 11 Lockie Ferguson

India could go in with a few changes. One of the three wicketkeepers or one of the allrounders could be left out. They could want to play two wristspinners too.

 

India (likely) 1 Rohit Sharma (capt.), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Shubman Gill/ Vijay Shankar, 4 Rishabh Pant, 5 Dinesh Karthik, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Krunal Pandya/Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Khaleel Ahmed/ Mohammed Siraj, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal

 

 

Meanwhile our haterz reaction when they find  dhoni is still integral part of our T20 team :phehe:

Gill should play but that means dropping Shankar who has done nothing wrong with the bat last game. Both can’t play. If both have to play then DK or Pant have to be  dropped who are leagues above MSD as a T20 player. 

 

So to accommodate MSD the most useless T20

player in the team one deserving player has to sit out :wall:

Pitch and conditions

Eden Park is oddly shaped and a tough ground to defend. This is a ground where last year Australia successfully chased down 244 with seven balls to spare. Chasing 143, New Zealand once got there in 10 overs. Yet nine matches have been won by sides batting first to six by chasing sides. A pleasant day is expected for the game

I can see whitewash unless and until rohit plays big knock. I highly doubt dhawan can play big knocks these days & middle order looks crap atm in t20s.

Big knock not needed, even though its desireable. Just a 30 odd from each opener is enough, that will set the platform. We did not get that last game from either of the two.

Answer is in your answer :lol:

Siraj definitely has earned it with lots of wkts in matches he has played over the last year. It sucks he has not getting a chance in test cricket

Probably because the ground is very short straight down the ground. I think its just 55m.

Yes maybe that's the only reason ,also Munro's reputation
