Fantasy suggestions for the fourth T20I between New Zealand and Australia in Wellington
New Zealand v Australia 4th T20I Match, Wellington
- The match is held at the same venue and hence expect the approach to be similar to the previous match. Back your team with six hitters and in-form players
Our XI: Matthew Wade (WK), Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Glenn Maxwell, Devon Conway, Marcus Stoinis, Riley Meredith, Trent Boult, Adam Zampa, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson
Substitutes:Aaron Finch, Joshua Phillipe, Ish Sodhi and Ashton AgarNOTE: We might not always be able to tip you off about a late injury (or other relevant) updates.
Captain: Martin Guptill
Guptill is the man in form for New Zealand and the leading run-getter in the series with 140 runs. He has been striking at 172.83 and has hit 11 sixes in the series so far.
Vice-Captain: Glenn Maxwell
Maxwell found his form last game and it will be a big miss if you don’t pick him in your team. Maxwell’s strike rate of 180.48 is the second best in this format and he scored a superb 70 to help Australia go past the 200-plus score in the third T20I. Drop Maxwell at your own peril.
Devon Conway Just like Guptill, Conway is the man in form. He has hit139 runs at 156.17 and has been striking the ball well. He plays fast and spin equally well. Conway is a safe pick in your fantasy team.
Riley Meredith : Meredith had a dream debut taking two wickets for 24 runs in the last T20I but what was impressive was his speed and accuracy. The New Zealand batsmen will surely come better prepared but Meredith is a wicket-taker and is in good form after a good BBL. He will be a good pick for your fantasy team.
Trent Boult: Boult has not bowled his best yet in the tournament but showed promise in the powerplay in the third match. Boult is a good value pick in your fantasy team as he has the ability to take early wickets if there is swing around. Boult has 21 wickets between overs one to six since September 2020. The next best is Jason Beherendoff with 13.
Matthew Wade : Wade has been striking in excess of 170 in the BBL over the last two seasons. However, for Australia he is yet to show similar performances. He has been striking at just 124 so far in the series. Wade is due for a big score and hence it is worth punting on him in your fantasy team.
