India A tour of New Zealand 2020 – 1st ODI Fantasy Preview

India A has been on top of their game as they’ve gone out to tour New Zealand and these players have had plenty of exposure around the world, with many of them having played for the senior team as well. In the two tour games so far, India A beat New Zealand A by 12 runs and 92 runs, and the home team will want to try batting first for this 1st ODI.

We have 3 ODIs and 2 unofficial test scheduled and you should first select those with international experience for your fantasy side. In head to head games in recent years, India A has held a great advantage over the home team. Keep reading for our PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the NZ-A vs IN-A 1st ODI…

India A

India has some serious batting talent at the top with Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal all set to open the innings for India A. In the second tour game, Shaw marked his comeback with a smashing 150 while Mayank has misfired so far with scores of 32 and 8. However, he has been brilliant for India recently including 243 in November last year, currently having an average of 67+ after 9 test matches for India.

The side is being led by Shubman Gill but I’d rather select all-rounders Krunal Pandya and Vijay Shankar, both of whom have also played for India. Krunal has 2 wickets in each game so far, while Shankar has a best score of 58 to go with 1 wicket in 2 games. My captain and vice-captain picks for today can both come from here. With 4 wickets in his only warm-up game, Khaleel Ahmed is a threat to the home team.

New Zealand A

The side is being led by Tom Bruce who was extremely consistent in the recent 2019/20 Super Smash, though he had a few failures towards the end. Another person who can help with the bat is opener and wicket-keeper Tom Blundell who has hit 2 fifties and a top score of 106 against West Indies, in his last 10 games overall.

Mark Chapman from Hong Kong is a good choice for your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team as he bats and bowls both. Another person who contributes in both departments is James Neesham who is also coming off a successful Super Smash tournament with 9 wickets in 9 games and a couple of thirties and couple of forties as well with the bat.
