New Zealand vs West Indies 2020, 1st T20I: 3 Must-Have Player Picks In Your Dream11 Fantasy Team for NZ vs WI 1st T20I

The explosive Kiwi opener is ranked 12th in the ICC Men’s T20 rankings and has garnered 2536 runs in 88 matches, with a strike rate of 134.61. He has scored 15 half-centuries as well as 2 centuries for New Zealand at the top and will be a must pick for this T20 game once again.

His batting brilliance witnesses a sharp rise when he plays on pace pitches. The team will expect another flying start from their experienced opener.

2) Mitchell Santner:

The New Zealand bowling-allrounder is currently placed 6th in the ICC Men’s bowling rankings. He can also add handy runs with the bat in the lower order. The spinner will be a threat for the Windies right-handers as he forces the right-hand batsmen to go against the spin, and ends up trapping them.

His fantasy potential increases in this format and will be a great choice for this game. He is dangerous in the middle overs and plays a vital role in containing the flow of runs.

3) Sheldon Cottrell:

The left-arm pacer has the responsibility of bowling the opening overs as well as death overs, and he can be a highly valuable fantasy pick considering his skills to net important scalps at the beginning as well as end of the innings.

He is presently ranked 11th in the T20I bowler rankings and will look to give his team a great start with the ball in the first T20 international. He is equally lethal to both left as well as right hand batsmen and can fetch you decent fantasy points. He is a player you cannot afford to drop, especially in this format.
