NZ vs AUS Dream11 prediction: 3 players you could pick as captain or vice-captain for today’s World T20 warm-up match
| Sport Latest News Headlines | Usa news
New Zealand and Australia will meet in match No. 12 of the 2021 T20 World Cup warm-up on Monday, October 18 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 2 in Abu Dhabi.
Australia, led by Aaron Finch, hasn’t had the best of times in T20I as of late. They will enter the game after eight losses in their last 10 Q20I. The Australians lost 1-4 to the West Indies, after which Bangladesh slapped them with a loss by the same margin.
Finch will also return after surgery on his right knee and how he will return remains to be seen. The Australians have had several very close contests against the Black Caps and the next game is expected to be a thriller as well.
The Black Caps, led by Kane Williamson, have never won an ICC trophy in limited overs formats. But a victory in the World Test Championship final against India should give them a lot of confidence. Several of its players also participated in the 2021 edition of the IPL.
Since the IPL took place in the United Arab Emirates, your players must be used to the conditions. The Kiwis recently sent their team to Bangladesh, but none of the players on that tour are part of the multinational tournament.
Along those lines, here are the top three players you can choose to captain your Dream11 team for this New Zealand-Australia warm-up game.
# 3 Kane Williamson (New Zealand)
Kane Williamson is not an absolute T20I hitter, known for playing bold shots. Rather, he is someone who scores by running between gates and with the odd limit.
Williamson recently played some useful shots for the Hyderabad Sunrisers in the 2021 IPL, although his team finished at the bottom. In 67 T20I, the Tauranga-born has scored 1805 runs including 13 half centuries.
# 2 David Warner (Australia)
David Warner was not in the best shape when he played for SRH in the IPL. Although he scored a pair of fifty, he did not appear to be at his best. The southpaw was eventually eliminated from the team.
However, having played 81 T20I for Australia, the 34-year-old is expected to deliver at the World Cup. Warner has scored 2,265 runs in his T20I career for the Australians with an average of 31.45 and a strike rate of 139.72.
# 1 Glenn Maxwell (Australia)
Glenn Maxwell is a brute in the middle order regardless of the team he represents. The 33-year-old has scored 1,780 runs for his national team with an average of 31.78 and a hit rate of 158.92.
The Victorian was also in great shape while playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the 2021 IPL. In fact, he was their top scorer in the tournament ahead of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
