Main Spinners: Ish Sodhi and M Santner(M Bracewell and G Phillips will assist them)

Main Pacers: J Duffy and L Ferguson ( J Neesham and D Mitchell will assist them)

Death Overs: J Duffy and L Ferguson

Important Picks:

  1. M Guptill: He is the most experienced Kiwi player of this squad. He has the ability to score quick runs, and, if he stick around for 10 to 15 overs, against the weaker opponent like Scotland, he will be nightmare for the bowlers. If there will be swing on offer from the pitch, then he may struggle in initial overs.
  2. G Phillips: Very fascinating player and likes to score quick runs. His recent performance against Ireland was terrific and, he will try to maintain the same form in this series as well. Phillips can bowl some over spin as well.
  3. J Neesham: He has the ability to score quick runs down the order, and will contribute with ball, as well. His all-round ability makes him the must have pick in your dream 11 team.
  4. L Fergusion: Kiwi’s best pacer who will bowl substantial amount of overs in death. On his day, he is one of the most dangerous bowlers to face.
  5. I Sodhi: He is a wicket taking spinner. If there will be any amount of spin offer from the pitch, then, he will be too hot to handle for Scottish batter.
  6. M Santner: Spin bowling all rounder who is very difficult to hit. His accuracy is the key, and can provide some points with bat as well, which makes him a impactful player in your team.
  7.  D Cleaver: Highly talented wicket keeper batter. He has scored tons of run in domestic circuit, and has performed well at international level as well. He will provide you backup with his wicket keeping skill.

Trump Card Pick( A Slight bit of riskier pick but can give you good amount of point if fires)

  1. F Allen: A natural attacking batter who has the ability to score quick runs in power-play. His inconsistency is the biggest drawback for him, but, on his day, he can provide you differential points.
  2. J Duffy: He will bowl in death overs, which makes a good Trump Card Pick for your dream 11 team
  3. M Bracewell: He is man in form for New Zealand. In ODI series, he has played crucial role down the order, for his team. He has the ability to score quick runs and if needed can bowl some overs.

Scotland  Team Preview:

Important Picks:

  1. C Macleod: Scotland’s one of the best batters C Macleod has done exceptionally well against Strong opponents like England and Afghanistan. He can anchor the inning and, if needed can play some fascinating shot as well. Macleod has made 3 half centuries in his last 4 matches.
  2. R Berrington: Scottish captain R Berrington is very fine all rounder of the team.  Berrington will bat at number 4, and has the good ability to pace his innings. He has very good technique against spin, during, middle overs Scotland batting will revolve around him. Although, his recent form is very poor, but, he has great capability to perform against stronger opponents. Scottish captain can contribute with ball as well.
  3. G Munsey: Hard hitting batter G Munsey will open the inning for Scotland. He will try to utilise the power play overs.
  4. M Watt: Scotland best spinner Mark Watt will be key for his team in middle overs. Scotland fortune will depend on how he performs with the ball. He is the experienced campaigner, and has played a lot against tougher opponents. Mark Watt is a wicket taking bowler and can be a good option in your team.
  5. S Sharif: Scotland best pacer Shafyan Sharif will bowl in death overs. He has very good experience of playing competitive cricket, and has featured for Derbyshire in T20 blast, as well as, in Royal London Cup. S Sharif can contribute with bat as well.

Trump Card Pick ( A Slight bit of riskier pick but can give you good amount of point if fires)

  1. G Main: The man in form pacer Gavin Main may bowl in death overs, because of his skill of bowling yorkers at will. His recent form is very impressive, and thus can provide you good points with his bowling. Main has payed for Durham in T20 blast. RiskHe still has to prove himself against tougher opponents.  
  2. C Greaves:  Greaves is very fine all-rounder. In batting department, he can score quick runs in slog overs and, in bowling department can provide some crucial breakthroughs with his spin bowling. Risk: How many overs he will bowl is not fixed, and is inconsistent in batting.
  3. M Leask: All Rounder Michael Leask is a hard hitter and can bowl some overs of spin. Leask is totally hit or miss type of batter but on his day, he can provide some crucial point with his batting as well as bowling skill. RiskHe is not consistent in any department.
