New Zealand vs Australia 2nd T20I Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Dream11 Team, and Injury Update. New Zealand will host Australia for a 5 match T20I series.
The 2nd T20I match of the series, between New Zealand and Australia, is to be held at University Oval, Dunedin on 25th February.
The game is scheduled to begin at 06:30 AM IST and the live score and commentary can be seen on the CricketAddictor website while the live streaming can be seen on FanCode.
After facing a huge defeat in the 1st T20I match against New Zealand, the visitors will be getting ready for the 2nd match of the series at Dunedin. The Australian team is led by Aaron Finch. They were defeated by 53 runs while chasing a score of 185. Mitchell Marsh scored a decent knock of 45 off 32 balls but wasn’t supported well by his colleagues, which resulted in Australia’s collapse.
New Zealand are high on confidence for winning this series too. New Zealand are being led by Kane Williamson in this series. Their top-order heavily underperformed in the 1st T20I. However, the rising sensation, Devon Conway and James Neesham stitched a massive partnership to pile up a good total. Devon Conway played a magnificent inning of 99 off 59, with the help of 10 boundaries and 3 sixes. Their lethal bowling attack brought Australian top-order to its knees. Ish Sodhi was the pick of the bowlers as he hunted 4 scalps in 4 overs, with an economy rate of 7.00.
The temperature is expected to be around 20-28°C with 45% humidity and 19 km/hr wind speed. There are 0% chances of precipitation during the match.
The pitch is a batting-friendly one. As it is a day match, the batting-second team will face a bit of difficulty in chasing. Swing on offer will be seen with the new ball in the second innings. Spinners will need to vary their bowling speed. 160 would be a par score on this ground.
Won – 10, Lost – 6, Tied – 0

Kane Williamson, the skipper of New Zealand, has been in good form across all the formats. He is a mandatory pick for the fantasy team considering his current form.
Tim Seifert, the wicketkeeper-batsman from New Zealand, has been a little inconsistent so far. He was in red hot form during the Super Smash 2021. He even went on to score the fastest T20 century in that tournament (107runs off 42 balls).
Devon Conway, who averages 91 in the T20Is, will be a player to watch out for in this match. He scored a fiery knock of 89 off 81 balls in the first game and can play the role of a sheet anchor in this game once again.
Jhye Richardson, the pacer from Perth Scorchers, grabbed 29 wickets in 17 matches of this BBL season, at an average of 16.30. He can also play few handy cameos towards the end of the innings. He scored 97 runs from 11 matches, with a strike rate of 139.13. He will be a must pick from the Australian side.
Captain – Kane Williamson, Tim Seifert.
Vice-Captain – Devon Conway, Marcus Stoinis.
Keeper – Tim Seifert (C), Mathew Wade
Batsmen – Kane Williamson, Marcus Stoinis (VC), Devon Conway

The best-suggested combination for this game is 2-3-3-3. Kane Williamson is a safe captaincy choice for this game. Tim Seifert can contribute with both bat as well as gloves in this match. Explosive left-handed batsman Mathew Wade can be tried as a captaincy choice in the grand leagues.
New Zealand will start as favourites in this match as well.
