Match Details:

Match: NZ vs IND, 1st T20I, India tour of New Zealand, 2020

Date: Friday, January 24, 2020

Time: 12:30 PM IST

Venue: Eden Park, Auckland

Pitch Report:

Auckland has always been favourable for the batsman, dimension of this ground is quite different as the straight boundaries are quite short so even the mishit goes for six. In the recent Super Smash T20 ( New Zealand Domestic League) this venue has produced very thrilling and high scoring encounter so team winning the toss would prefer to chase at this venue. Last T20I that was played at this venue was a 11 over game and as many as 146 runs were scored in the first innings, so exept 180 odd will be par at this venue.

Weather Report:

The weather forecast in Auckland on Friday is absolutely perfect. There is no chance of rain whatsoever with the temperature expected to hover around 24-26 Degrees Celsius according to AccuWeather.

Our FSL11 Fantasy XI Predicted:

Wicket Keeper: KL Rahul

Batsman: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Colin Munro

Allrounder: Washington Sundar, Colin de Grandhomme

Bowler: Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Tim Southee

Player to Watch Out For:

Colin de Grandhomme: New Zealand played their last 5 matches series against England and Colin de Grandhomme form was one of the major boost for this Kiwis side, many times he was promoted up the order and he did a great damage with his log levers and strong base. He is currently in great hitting form so he can be the vitag cog in this series. Also, with his bowling he makes a great balance to the side. So he will be one of the player that you can pick from your best cricket fantasy app.

FSL11 Match Prediction:

It is going to be hard fought series as New Zealand at their conditions are tough team to beat but India is coming off from a hard fought win against Australia, though that was ODI but the squad was more or less same. The visitors are likely to be favourites as they are looking much solid team on paper.
