 Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: New Zealand v India 3rd ODI

The 3rd and the final match of the three-match ODI series between New Zealand and India will be played at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui.

India have been complacent in the ODI series after whitewashing the Kiwis 5-0 in the T20Is and they have had to pay the price by losing the series. While it was the Indian bowlers who lost them the game in the first match, the Indian batsmen led to the team's downfall the last time around.

Despite a below-par total to chase, the Indian batsmen looked in a hurry and played some atrocious shots. Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal may have got good balls but the way KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Kedar Jadhav threw their wickets away, it was the main reason why despite the lower order fightback from India, they lost the game.

The Indian bowling, though, was quite decent and looked in with a shout of folding up the Kiwis under 220 at one point.

For New Zealand, debutante Kyle Jamieson showed his all-round class and was assisted well by Tim Southee and Hamish Bennett with the ball.

With all three of Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn and Tim Southee ill, it would be interesting to see who they pick for this game. There is also a possibility of the Kiwi management having to add another player to the squad at the last moment.


Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

New Zealand - Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (c & wk), Mark Chapman, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee/Scott Kuggeleijn, Hamish Bennett

India - Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami

Key Players to Consider for your Fantasy Cricket Teams


New Zealand

Martin Guptill – top scored with 79 in 2nd ODI and looks in great touch

Ross Taylor – had a great 1st ODI -109 off 84 balls and 73 in the 2nd ODI – he is fine form with the bat

Colin de Grandhomme – had OK outings in the 1st and 2nd ODIs and his form should improve



KL Rahul – needs to return to form he set in in getting 88 in 1st ODI

Virat Kohli – he is a match winner and can’t be left out of any fantasy team!

Ravindra Jadeja – has been in great form with bat and ball in both ODIs so far
