New Zealand vs Australia, 3rd T20I, Fantasy Pick, team suggestions

New Zealand vs Australia, 3rd T20I, Wellington

Pro Tip: The average team total in the last three T20Is in Wellington is 186. The ground has been good to both spinners and pace bowlers. Balance your team with a mix of players.

Our XI: Matthew Wade, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Glenn Maxwell, Devon Conway, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Santner, Trent Boult, Adam Zampa, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson

Substitutes: Aaron Finch, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Daniel Sams

NOTE: We might not always be able to tip you off about a late injury (or other relevant) updates.

Captain: Kane Williamson
Williamson scored a stroke-filled 53 from 35 deliveries in the second T20I. He has multiple gears anyway, and is a safe fantasy pick especially at home. He averages 41.72 and scores six runs more than his career strike rate, at 131. 69.

Vice-captain: Glenn Maxwell
Maxwell does not fail too often for Australia in the shortest format. So, although he has made just four runs in the tour so far, he is due for a big score. Maxwell's strike rate of 156.86 in this format along with three centuries makes him a key player in this line-up. If Australia have to stay alive in the series then Maxwell is key.

Hot picks
Mitchell Santner: Santner leads the wicket-taking charts with five wickets and also has the second-best economy rate going at just eight runs per over. The Australians have struggled against spin in the past and have lost wickets to Ish Sodhi and Santner in the first two T20Is. Santner should fetch points through wickets or his economy.

Martin Guptill: Guptill had been out of form for a while but got back his rhythm by scoring 97 runs from 50 balls with eight sixes in the previous game. If Guptill can keep his form going, he will be very useful in your fantasy team. He scores big and scores fast. There is a good chance we will be in for a high-scoring game and Guptill could be instrumental in making that happen.

Value picks
Kane Richardson: Death bowlers are usually good for fantasy teams. Although Richardson has been expensive, he has a knack for picking up wickets with his variations. He took 3 for 43 in the previous game bowling some tight death overs.

Devon Conway: Conway was the pick of the batsmen in the first game scoring an unbeaten 99. He did not get much of an opportunity in the second game coming lower down the order. However, if there are a few early wickets, Conway could be vital for New Zealand. He has scored five fifty-plus scores in his last six innings, with three scores in the 90s. He could be a value pick.
