Top Picks for SCO vs NZ Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
In-form batsman Glenn Phillips made his ODI debut this month against Ireland and went on to hit 101 runs in three games with a strike rate of 102.02.
The hot batsman, Calum MacLeod, has three fifty-scores in his previous four ODI games, including 64 runs off just 29 balls against Nepal in the most recent game.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
The outstanding all-rounder Michael Bracewel blasted 61 runs off just 25 balls in the most recent game against Scotland. And has already amassed 194 runs in just five ODI innings.
The talented all-rounder Daryl Mitchell hit 54 runs in two T20I matches against Scotland but was unable to bowl any overs.
Top Picks – Bowlers
The top pacer, Lockie Ferguson, has 71 wickets to his name in just 39 One Day Internationals, with an average of 26.52 and an economy rate of 5.44. For your fantasy team, picking him as the captain or vice-captain will be a wise move.
The talented Scottish spinner Hamza Tahir recently defeated Nepal with four wickets. And defeated Namibia with three in the preceding ODI match.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
The 29-year-old batsman Matthew Cross will be a stronger alternative than the Kiwi batsman Dane Cleaver, who hits in the lower order and is having difficulty maintaining consistency.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for SCO vs NZ Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Dane Cleaver, Martin Guptill, Glenn Phillips (c), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Bracewell (c), Safyann Sharif, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Gavin Main.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for SCO vs NZ Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Matthew Cross, Dane Cleaver, Martin Guptill (c), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Micahel Leask, Lockie Ferguson (vc), Blair Tickner, Hamza Tahir.
SCO vs NZ Risky Captaincy Choices:
In the second T20I encounter against Ireland, wicketkeeper-batter Dane Cleaver scored 78 runs in just 55 balls. But he has only scored 33 runs in the last two games.
The 30-year-old all-rounder Michael Rippon, who was unable to play in the last game, nonetheless managed to take two wickets while giving up 37 runs.
Players you should avoid:
The 23-year-old batsman Christopher McBride has only appeared in two ODIs and has only managed to score 15 runs. In your fantasy team for this game, you can omit him.
