As India and New Zealand lock horns in the opener of the World T20 main group, the wicket in Nagpur is likely to provide us all a good contest between bat and ball.
For this round of fantasy cricket, pick the Kiwi pacers as they are likely to pose the Indian batters some problems.
That said, one cannot afford to take the eyes off India’s top order batters. From the black-caps line-up, a few, new faces are lined-up to make it count big time.
Our probable 11 that could take to the field
IND- Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravi Ashwin, Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah
NZ- Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Grant Elliot, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Mitchell Santner, Luke Ronchi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Adam Milne
Players who cannot be ignored for this round
Virat Kohli- He is a big match player and will be all charged up to take on the Kiwis in the opener.
Corey Anderson- He knows the Indian conditions well after playing in the IPL and will be a threat with both bat and ball.
R Ashwin- The Kiwis don't play spin very well and India's premier offie is likely to create quite a few problems.
Colin Munro- He is a special talent. Can be unorthodox but has the reputation of taking any attack to the cleaners.
Trent Boult- If there is any help on the wicket, he will exploit it. Swing and seam makes him a huge threat.
