New Zealand vs India 2020: 4th T20I – Dream 11, Fantasy Tips, Predicted XI & Match Prediction


Team India, who have already sealed the series winning the first three matches will look to keep up their dominating run in the fourth match on January 31 (Friday) at the Sky Stadium in Wellington. After winning their first-ever series, the Men in Blues will now aim to inflict a whitewash over the Black Caps. 

Virat Kohli & Co have all their departments covered, with almost every member of their XI having contributed thus far. That gives them an opportunity to test their bench strength, as skipper Kohli had already hinted after the third T20I. Navdeep Saini and Kuldeep Yadav might get a go while the management will be keen to give Shardul Thakur an extended run. 

New Zealand finished on the wrong side once again losing out on the super over in the last game. But the home side had plenty of positives to take from the third T20I along with Kane Williamson's splendid show with the bat. The worrying factor, though, would be the form of their two senior men, Tim Southee and Colin de Grandhomme. They have failed to stand up which is one of the main reasons behind their loss.

The Kiwis might bring in bowling all-rounder Daryl Mitchell who had a good debut against India as they look to bounce back in the last two matches. 

Dream 11 & Fantasy Report

First of all, it is crucial to select a team. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room. Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you. In fact, Dream 11 has brought a change in its rule by which you can alter your team even after the toss.

Thus, you can pick your team according to the playing XI of both sides. Secondly, it is pivotal to pick the right combination of captain and vice-captain. A captain gets twice the points whereas the deputy of the team receives points at 1.5 times. Thus, it is imperative to select the in-form players as your respective captain and vice-captain.

It is also crucial to get top-order batsmen in the team. They are likely to score the major chunk of the score. Furthermore, it is pivotal to check the pitch conditions and select the team accordingly.

Predicted XI


Rohit Sharma,  KL Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli (capt), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit Bumrah

New Zealand

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (capt), Ross Taylor, Daryl Mitchell, Tim Seifert (wk), Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn. Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Hamish Bennett

Pitch Conditions

The team batting first has won four of the last five at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. The bowlers will have a tough time considering that the grounds are small in New Zealand. Meanwhile, the pacers have picked more wickets than the spinners in this venue. 

Match Prediction

India have dominated the first three games to pocket the series for the first time ever in New Zealand. They are in likelihood will win the fourth match of the series with the Kiwis missing their frontline fast bowlers in Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, and Matt Henry. 

Dream 11

KL Rahul, Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hamish Bennett
