Smart Picks

Against India, Kane Williamson has scored 358 runs at a healthy average of 33. Although his strike rate was controversial in the T20 World Cup, he fetched runs consistently. His Ultimate Team percentage in the last 5 games reads 60%.

Ish Sodhi has great numbers for the game. He has managed the most wickets against India (11 in 9 games) and at the venue (20 in 15 games).

Suryakumar Yadav has featured in the Ultimate Team in all his last 5 games. With 1,040 runs to his name, he is the highest run-scorer in 2022.

In his last 5 T20s, Shubman Gill generated bonus fantasy points for a thirty, a fifty, and a hundred. The pitch and conditions are best suited for his style of batting.

Devon Conway’s approach makes him a safe pick in fantasy cricket. He plays the ball to its merit, rarely trying something that isn’t a part of the textbook. He averages 49 and strikes at 131 in 33 T20Is.

Arshdeep Singh has been equally good with the new and old ball, taking 5 wickets each in the powerplay and at the death in the T20 World Cup. On the other hand, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been effective only in the powerplay. In 2022, he tops the list for the most wickets with the new ball.

Amongst both teams, Glenn Phillips is the only player to score a century at the venue. With 650 runs at a strike rate of 155, he is the highest run-scorer for New Zealand in 2022.
