IN-L vs NZ-L Dream11 prediction for Road Safety T20 World Series 2022
Led by Sachin Tendulkar, India Legends started their Road Safety T20 World Series 2022 campaign with a clinical 61-run victory over South Africa Legends at Green Park in Kanpur on September 10. However, India Legends’ clash against West Indies Legends was abandoned due to rain.
With three points from two matches, India Legends are currently placed third in the Road Safety T20 World Series 2022 standings.
On the other hand, New Zealand Legends head into the India encounter brimming with confidence, having thrashed Bangladesh Legends by eight wickets on Saturday. The Ross Taylor-led side previously suffered a nine-wicket defeat against South Africa Legends in their opening match of the tournament. New Zealand Legends are currently placed fifth in the standings with two points from as many games.
Sachin Tendulkar-led India Legends won seven of their eight matches in the inaugural edition of Road Safety T20 World Series. India Legends beat Sri Lanka Legends by 14 runs to clinch the maiden title. Meanwhile, New Zealand Legends are making their debut this season.
Going by this season’s form, India Legends will start as favourites against New Zealand Legends on Monday.
IN-L vs NZ-L Dream11 team tips for Road Safety T20 World Series 2022
Top tip: Best batter
New Zealand Legends’ Dean Browlie could be a smart pick for this Road Safety T20 World Series encounter. The 38-year-old played an impressive knock of 31 runs off just 19 balls against Bangladesh Legends. He hit three fours and one six in his innings. Browlie has already accrued 110 fantasy points and could be a decent pick at just 8.5 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, India Legends’ Rahul Sharma could be a great pick at just 8.5 credits. The 36-year-old leg-spinner picked three wickets for 17 runs in his quota of four overs against South Africa Legends. Rahul Sharma has already accumulated 113 fantasy points and will look to add more to his tally against New Zealand Legends.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, India Legends’ in-form Stuart Binny could be a quality investment. The former India all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 82-run knock off just 42 balls against South Africa Legends. Having already amassed 117 fantasy points, Stuart Binny will be a good fantasy pick at just 8 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, India Legends’ Naman Ojha will be the top fantasy recommendation over Gareth Hopkins of New Zealand Legends. Besides fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Ojha scored 21 runs off 18 balls against South Africa to provide his side a decent start. Ojha could be a valuable addition to any fantasy team for 8.5 credits.
