Australia will look to continue the winning momentum when they take on New Zealand in fifth T20I in the tri-series at Auckland on Friday. Having secured a place in the final Australia may look to test their bench strength but it is highly unlikely that they will change the winning combination. On the other hand New Zealand will look to book their place in the final by winning this match.
Best economical pick – D'arcy Short showcased his talents with an eye-catching knock at the MCG with the promise of more to come. He is a very talented young openers who has been in good form in the recently concluded BBL. He scores run quickly and sometimes can be a handy bowler also.
Top captains & vice captains – Glenn Maxwell is the highest run scorer in this tri-series so far. He has been contributing consistently with the bat and can also contribute with the ball as well. The veteran opener Martin Guptill doesn’t needs any introduction. He contributed with a very important 65 runs and has been among the runs in the recent matches. NZ will look for a important innings from him.
Smart pick – It is reported that the pitch will be on the slower side. Ish Sodhi will be a clever option in this situation who can pick up wickets with his spin bowling and having Santner by his side will give him more confidence.
Cautious Pick – David Warner’s captaincy form and batting form has been contradicting each other. His captaincy has been brilliant but he has not yet found his groove in this series with bat. It is just a matter of 1 innings to get back to his form but at the moment his batting can be a let-down for a fantasy team manager.
My XI – Glenn Maxwell (Captain), Martin Guptill (Vice-Captain), Andrew Tye, Colin Munro, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Alex Carey, Billy Stanlake, D'arcy Short, Kane Williamson , Chris Lynn
