NZ vs AUS Dream11 Fantasy Prediction: The 3rd T20I of 5 match series between New Zealand and Australia will be played at Westpac Stadium in Wellington on 3rd March 2021.
NZ vs AUS Match Preview
The 3rd T20I between New Zealand and Australia will take place at Westpac Stadium in Wellington on Wednesday. It was first scheduled to be played at Eden Park, Outer Oval, however, due to the second wave of COVID-19 in New Zealand, the next two T20Is will now take place at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington behind closed doors instead of Eden Park, Outer Oval.
The Black Caps are currently leading 2-0 the series and a win in the third encounter will seal the series for them. Blackcaps won the first game of this series by 53 runs while they have extended their lead in this home T20I series by winning the next game by just 4 runs.
Australia, on the other hand, is massively struggling in T20 cricket while their top-order batsmen are struggling to provide strong starts. Though a few of their middle-order batsmen fought hard in both the last two matches, those were not enough for their chasings.
Mitchell Marsh scored crucial 45 runs in the opening game of this series while Marcus Stoinis’ 78 off 37 balls and Josh Philippe’s 45 runs (32 balls) and lower-middle-order batsman Daniel Sams’ 41 off just 15 balls stunningly brought the visitors back into the game, but their brilliant contributions just went in vain.
While New Zealand is leading this T20I series by the 2-0 margin, they are very much favourite to secure this series by winning this third game of this series.
This is the perfect event for the fantasy sports enthusiast to predict their fantasy team. So here are the match details, pitch report, weather forecast, head to head, top picks, probable playing XI and dream11 fantasy team prediction for the 3rd T20I between New Zealand and Australia.
