Time: October 12, 7.30 AM IST
Probable XI for New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, James Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Ish Sodhi, Adam Milne, Tim Southee (c), Trent Boult
Probable XI for Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Shan Masood, Shadab Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain
Both Haider and Asif Ali have been major disappointments in fantasy leagues. While Haider has managed only 26 points in the series, Asif has collected 33.
For smashing 101 runs at an average of 51, with an impressive strike rate of 202, Glenn Phillips has provided 84 crucial points on My11Circle.
Mohammad Nawaz, who keeps getting promoted up the order, has registered breezy knocks of 45*, 16, and 8*. With the ball, he has 5 wickets.
Tim Southee and Mohammad Wasim Jr have picked 7 wickets each, and are the joint-leading wicket-takers. While Southee is yet to go wicketless, Wasim has bagged one three-wicket haul and two two-wicket hauls.
Finn Allen is expected to go hammer and tongs at the top. In his previous encounter against Pakistan, he hammered 62 off 42 balls.
By picking three consecutive two-wicket hauls, Michael Bracewell is turning out to be a dark horse in fantasy sports. Although he hasn’t made any impact with the bat, he certainly has the ability to get the job done.
For the series, the three highest contributors on My11Circle have been Devon Conway (163), Mohammad Rizwan (122.5), and Babar Azam (116). Incidentally, all three have slammed 2 half-centuries each. Their selection percentage too hasn’t dropped below 90%.
Fantasy Tip Of The Day
Pakistan’s middle order continues to struggle for runs. The entire unit collectively has managed only 8 sixes in 4 games, as compared to the Kiwis who have blasted 25.
