T20I action shifts to Nelson as the hosts, New Zealand looks to utilise their momentum in the third T20I against England. Although England had caused some trouble to the Kiwis, the likes of Jimmy Neesham and Mitchell Santner starred in a morale boosting win on Sunday. While England started the tour brightly, their inexperience showed with Pat Brown being taken to the cleaners.

At a venue which is known for high-scoring matches, both sides will look to inch ahead in the series as the competition among the players increases with each passing match. Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team for NZ vs ENG.

Squads to choose from:

New Zealand:

Tim Southee (C), Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Scott Kuggleijn, Daryl Mitchell, Colin Munro, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, and Blair Tickner.


Eoin Morgan (C), James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Pat Brown, Chris Jordan, Matthew Parkinson, Adil Rashid, and Saqib Mahmood.

Playing XI Updates:

New Zealand:


After a dominant win in the previous game, New Zealand shouldn't be making any changes. Although they haven't fired yet, Colin Munro and Martin Guptill remain crucial at the top of the order. While Tim Seifert is also due for a big knock, their middle order has done well with Colin de Grandhomme and Jimmy Neesham getting some runs under their belt. Their bowling unit is well rounded with Tim Southee leading it well. Mitchell Santner is one to watch out for with the Kiwi all-rounder picking up six wickets so far.

Possible XI: Guptill, Munro, Seifert (WK), de Grandhomme, Taylor, Mitchell, Neesham, Southee (C), Santner, Ferguson and Sodhi.


A couple of changes are expected from England with Tom Banton expected to make his T20I debut at the expense of Dawid Malan. Youngster, Matthew Parkinson could also feature for Pat Brown, who wasn't able to get a wicket in the previous game. Sam Curran and Lewis Gregory provide the balance in the side with Eoin Morgan and Jonny Bairstow also being key to their fortunes. Tom Curran could also feature in case Jordan or Rashid is given a rest for this game.

Possible XI: Bairstow, Banton/Malan, Vince, Morgan(C), Billings(WK), Sam Curran, Gregory, Jordan, Parkinson, Mahmood and Rashid.

Match Details:

New Zealand vs England, 3rd T20I 

5th November 2019, 6:30 AM IST

Saxton Oval, Nelson

Pitch Report:

Although the venue has only hosted one T20l, a high-scoring encounter is expected on Tuesday. The overcast conditions are expected to help the pacers up front while the spinners should also be able to get some turn. Nevertheless, a score of 170-180 should be competitive here with teams preferring to chase upon winning the toss.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:

Wicket-keeper: Tim Seifert is the preferred option with the Kiwi wicket-keeper capable of scoring quick runs in the top order. Although Sam Billings bats at number six, he is also capable of clearing the boundary with ease in the death overs. He should suffice as the second wicket-keeper in the fantasy option if required.

Batsmen: Jonny Bairstow and Colin Munro are the must have players in the side with the nature of the pitch favouring their style of play. They should be able to play their strokes freely and give their side a fast start. While James Vince also looks to be in good touch, the likes of Ross Taylor and Eoin Morgan can also be banked upon to earn fantasy points.

Allrounders: Mitchell Santner and Sam Curran have done exceedingly well in the two games so far. While Santner has six wickets to his name, Curran has also showcased his class with the new ball in both games. Both of them are decent options to have while one of Colin de Grandhomme or Jimmy Neesham should also make the cut.

Bowlers: Chris Jordan is another such bowler who has picked a few wickets in the series so far. While he already is a must have in the side, Lockie Ferguson and Ish Sodhi are viable candidates as well. As for the final pick in the side, one of Matthew Parkinson or Adil Rashid should fit the bill 

Captain: Jonny Bairstow is due for a big knock at the top of the order for the English side. He is the obvious choice for captaincy while the duo of Colin Munro and Eoin Morgan also fit the bill for this crucial encounter. If one were to pick a bowling option, Lockie Ferguson would suffice.

Fantasy Suggestion #1: Tim Seifert, Jonny Bairstow, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, James Vince, James Neesham, Sam Curran, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Chris Jordan and Matthew Parkinson. Captain: Jonny Bairstow, Vice-Captain: Colin Munro

Fantasy Suggestion #2: Tim Seifert, Sam Billings, Jonny Bairstow, Colin Munro, Eoin Morgan, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Sam Curran, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi and Chris Jordan. Captain: Colin Munro, Vice-Captain: Eoin Morgan
