Fantasy Tips of the Day
In the only T20I that New Zealand played in Ranchi, Glenn Phillips top-scored with 34 off 21. In six innings against India, he has the best score of 54. If anything, he fancies taking spinners to the cleaners.
In the T20Is between these teams, Ish Sodhi is the highest wicket-taker. In fact, his 22 wickets against India are the most against any team.
One of Suryakumar Yadav’s three hundreds came against New Zealand. Overall, he averages 47 against the Kiwis.
Mitchell Santner’s numbers in India are impressive. In 11 games, he has taken 15 wickets and has a top score of 27*.
Although this will be Devon Conway’s first international T20 in India, he has the experience of playing the format here. Playing for Chennai in the Indian T20 League 2022, he smashed 252 runs at 42, including a hat-trick of fifties.
In this game, there are as many as four players with Ultimate Team percentage of 80 in their last 5 appearances: Hardik Pandya, Michael Bracewell, Umran Malik, and Blair Tickner.
In the last 3 T20Is at the venue, pacers took 21 of 33 wickets.
