India vs New Zealand My Dream 11 Team

India vs New Zealand My Dream 11 Team


India has been playing some brilliant cricket in the ICC World Cup 2019 and they are showing to the world why they are a team to be feared. They have already beaten strong teams like South Africa and Australia with ease and now have New Zealand in their sights.

New Zealand is no push-over either. It has won all three of its matches in the cricket world cup 2019 and been extremely professional in its efforts. We are not too sure how much winning the warm-up match against India just before the World Cup 2019 began is going to matter, but New Zealand may look at that result as a positive.

The match against India would be the first real test that New Zealand is going to face. India knows just how dangerous the Kiwis can be and is not going to take this match lightly either. Both of these teams are the only unbeaten teams in the World Cup now. Which one will remain unbeaten after the match is over?

India vs New Zealand 18th Match in ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on the 13th of June 2019.



IND Team News

India has been dealt a big blow as Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the World Cup for three weeks due to a fractured thumb. The opening batsman sustained the injury while batting in the last match against Australia.

Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik are the two probable replacement options for Dhawan and one of them will have to bat at number four as KL Rahul is likely to partner Rohit Sharma at the opening position. Since overcast conditions are expected at the Trent Bridge, India may consider bringing in Mohammed Shami in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Team Form

India’s performance against Australia was one of the best we have seen from the side in any world cup match. They were lucky to win the toss and bat first on a used pitch but everything that followed from that point on was the skill.

Rohit Sharma scored another 50, Shikhar Dhawan made a century, Virat Kohli got 80, and Hardik Pandya showed his power game can work very well on the international stage. Even MS Dhoni and Lokesh Rahul hit sixes from the very first ball they faced.

This meant that India scored over 350 runs and with their bowling attack, they were always going to defend that.

India is playing New Zealand at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, which is the highest scoring ground in the world. There are some extremely small boundaries to take advantage of and a very flat pitch that is favorable to the batsmen.

We think India will want to chase first if it gets the chance because setting a target can be very tricky at Trent Bridge. The batting order looks quite well sorted right now and we don’t anticipate any changes for the match against New Zealand.

India’s top-order will be wary of Trent Boult early on but we think they won't be very worried about any of the other bowlers.

Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal have been the best bowlers for India so far. They have been bowling at a high level and can be expected to do the same. The real advantage for India has been the form of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. His return to wicket-taking ways helps India close up one more gap in its defense.

We definitely think that India can expect the New Zealand batsmen to be a lot more aggressive than the Australians were.

Team News

New Zealand has no injury concerns heading into this game. They have not felt the need to make any changes to their line-up since their campaign opener against Sri Lanka and it won't be surprising if they go unchanged for the third consecutive time.

Martin Guptill and Colin Munro will continue to open the batting while Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor will be batting at numbers three and four respectively. Trent Boult and Matt Henry are likely to share the new ball once again. Mitchell Santner is the lone spinner in this New Zealand side.

Team Form

Three matches and three wins have meant that New Zealand has had a great start to the ICC World Cup 2019. Their wins have come against Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, three of the lower ranked teams in the competition.

This match against India is going to be a whole different level of cricket.

New Zealand has already defeated India in the warm-up game and will be confident of doing it again. To do that, though, New Zealand is going to have to play aggressive cricket.

Martin Guptill and Colin Munro form an excellent opening partnership. They score at a fast run-rate and definitely have the game to take on India’s bowlers. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are also in superb rhythm in the middle-order.

This is a very strong batting lineup and one which could very easily get enough runs to stop India.

The biggest threat to New Zealand’s batsmen is going to come from the wrist spinners. They were unable to figure them out when the two sides met in New Zealand. Attack has to be the best option against them because if they are allowed to bowl freely then half the match is already lost.

Jimmy Neesham, Tom Latham, and Colin de Grandhomme ensure that there is a lot of power at the end of the inning should it be needed.

The New Zealand bowling attack has a very good fast bowling component but its spinners are only average. Trent Boult, Matt Henry, and Lockie Ferguson will have to find a way of picking up some early wickets to put the Indian middle order under pressure.

Boult has troubled a lot of the Indian batsmen with the ball that come into the pads, especially Rohit Sharma. His battle with Sharma up front could go a long way in deciding the outcome of the match.

New Zealand Starting Lineup

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.


The team winning the toss is expected to want to bat second. There is some rain around and that could mean a shortened match with a DLS adjusted score. The team that bats second will have a definite advantage.

India vs New Zealand ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The weather around the United Kingdom has been bad this week and the forecast in Nottingham for this match is not very good either.

A lot of rain is expected to fall in Trent Bridge and we could struggle to get any cricket in. The best case scenario looks one where a shortened match is possible to get a result.

The pitch in Trent Bridge is flat and full of runs. The batsmen are going to be able to score at their will and a score of about 330 seems to be par for the venue.


The rain has been spoiling the flow of the ICC World Cup 2019 and it looks India vs New Zealand is also going to be affected. The Dream 11 team for India vs New Zealand ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be made assuming that Henry Nicholls and Shikhar Dhawan are not fit and will not be available for this match.

Wicketkeeper: There are four good options available for this slot in this match and Dream11 new rules allow us to pick them all. We are, however, only picking MS Dhoni from this category. Dinesh Karthik could play now that Shikhar Dhawan is injured, Tom Latham is in good form and Tom Blundell has scored runs also. Dhoni's good form with the bat and his possible move up to number four in the batting order makes him the best pick.

Batsmen: We have picked the five best batsmen available in this match since the venue is Trent Bridge, the highest scoring ground in the world. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Lokesh Rahul, Ross Taylor, and Kane Williamson are all superb players and in good form. Leaving out Martin Guptill and Colin Munro was tough but there is no way to include all of them in one team! We think Lokesh Rahul has the chance of a lifetime to secure his place in the Indian ODI team once and for all now that Dhawan has been ruled out for the next few games.

All-rounders: Hardik Pandya and Colin de Grandhomme are the players we have picked in this match. They are both important bowlers for their side and very good strikers of the cricket ball as well. Their role in accelerating the inning towards the end is going to be crucial.

Bowlers: Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, and Lockie Ferguson make it into our team for this match. We have taken the risky decision of not picking Jasprit Bumrah in this match because we think New Zealand will try and play him out without losing their wickets to him.

Captain and Vice-Captain: We have picked Virat Kohli and Ross Taylor as captain and vice-captain for this match respectively.

India dominated New Zealand when it went there earlier this year. New Zealand, however, has a good record against India in ICC events. The 20 overs from India’s wrist-spinners in the middle overs are going to be where the match is won or lost. Both teams have a good batting lineup but India has the better bowling attack.
