India’s tour of New Zealand begins, and so is our opportunity to win on Dream11. World Cricket will now move from T20 to ODI as we have 50 over World Cup in 2023. Yet, we cannot completely underestimate the T20 teams. 

There will be many changes in the T20 team, as happens after every major tournament. India needs those changes as well. The hunt for trophies continues, and we need to make a good team to win. 

Why Is This Series Important?

The main reason why India is losing on big platforms is the inconsistent team. You can see Yuzi, Bishnoi, Ishan Kishan, Jadeja, and Bumrah as the players playing throughout the year. But during the World Cup players like Ashwin, Shami, and KL Rahul were on the team.

Obviously, injuries were one of the factors for bulk changes. But creating a team and their back-ups will be key for future tournaments. 

Some major changes can be seen, as Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, and Washington Sundar are getting more opportunities. DK won’t be available for the 2024 World Cup, you can see him in the commentary box, though. Or who knows, he might play and also hit the finishing runs.

However, India will seriously look to add new players to the team. And giving them more match practice and playing them in the tournament. However, let us focus on one game at a time.

Must-Have Players In your Dream11 Team


He was in great touch in the world cup, at least in the group stages. Matches are in New Zealand, and he will look to play big. Additionally, he is a good wicketkeeper, so he can get some extra points for catches. 

Shreyas Iyer

Iyer will definitely look to cement his place in white ball cricket. Players of such caliber cannot be kept quiet for so long. It will be difficult for him to find his place in top order. Especially, when players like Virat, KL, Rohit, and SKY are available. But performing in their absence will increase his chances.

Arshadeep Singh

He will look to carry his form from the World Cup. He is a gun bowler, who can bowl with the new ball and also in the death overs. 

Glenn Philips

Philips is live energy on the field. You simply cannot keep this man away from your team. He scores in boundaries, even that can give you extra points. It will depend on the toss as well, but he will definitely play all the matches in my Dream11 team

Captain And Vice-Captain Picks For Dream11

Hardik Pandya

My man Hardik is now captain of the team, he can bowl, he can bat, and he is a gun fielder. I don’t find any reason not to make him the Dream11 team’s captain as well. 

Suryakumar Yadav

This guy is in red-hot form. The number 1 T20 batsman in the world. The reason, why I keep SKY in all the matches, is his scoring abilities. And, even if he is not a keeper, the fields are in hot spots on the ground. So he takes catches and scores quick runs. A perfect option for Vice-captain

Dark-Horse Picks For Dream11


A spinner who can bowl in the power play, and in middle overs is always a good bowler. On his day he can pick more than a couple of wickets. Also, he can bat in the lower order. So he is a handy pick


Yuzi Chahal, my man, needs to prove why India should not bench him in the ICC tournaments. I believe he is the best T20 bowler after Bumrah for team India. All he needs is to perform in that way.
