IRE vs NZ Dream11 prediction
New Zealand defeated hosts Ireland by 31 runs in the first T20I and will start as overwhelming favourites to win the second match. Going by recent form and past head-to-head results, the Kiwis are likely to beat Ireland and clinch the three-match T20I series on Wednesday.
IRE vs NZ Dream11 team tips for 2nd T20I
Top tip: Best batter
Ireland’s Harry Tector may have scored just five runs in the first T20I, but he made a whopping 225 runs in the three ODIs against New Zealand just before coming into the 20-over series. He has consistently been scoring runs, and can be a part of your fantasy team if you can spare 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
Lockie Ferguson could be the pick that could matter the most with the ball. His four-wicket haul in the previous T20I shows how much damage he is capable of inflicting. The Kiwi pacer and captain is priced at 9.0 credits for your Dream 11 team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Jimmy Neesham has been handy with both bat and ball, making him the in-demand all-rounder for this fixture. He scored a handy 29 (16) in the first T20I and backed up that performance with numbers of 3-0-19-2 with the ball, making him a valuable asset to the team. The Black Caps player is worth 8.5 credits.
Ireland’s Lorcan Tucker is the preferred wicket-keeper for your fantasy team. He took three important catches to dismiss the Kiwi wicket-keeper Dane Cleaver, the possibly dangerous Daryl Mitchell, and an on-song James Neesham. He can become a part of your fantasy team for 8.5 credits.
IRE vs NZ probable playing XI
Ireland playing XI (probable): Paul Stirling, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Harry Tector, Curtis Campher, George Dockrell, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, Craig Young, Joshua Little.
