Fantasy Cricket Tips: ‘New Zealand vs India’ Test series is about to get underway as the limited-overs phase of this tour has culminated. Both the teams won one series each while surprisingly, they registered whitewash wins in their specialized formats. However, the real test of this tour will commence now as Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson will lead their respective nations in the red-ball cricket.
As this series is a part of the ICC World Test Championship, fans from all over the world will have an eye on this series. Talking about Test cricket, the fantasy cricket tips experts will also monitor this series closely because there is a great chance of winning money through fantasy cricket. The vice-captain of a fantasy team is the ‘X-factor’ of that team and considering the latest fantasy cricket news as well as the expert fantasy cricket tips, here are the 5 players who can be the vice-captain of your team in the IND vs NZ series.
The captain of the Indian Test team, Virat Kohli could not make much impact in the white-ball series of this tour. The Kiwi bowlers tamed him in the ODI as well as the T20I series as he is yet to register his first hundred of this tour. The right-handed batsman has been in sublime touch in the ICC World Test Championship hence, despite his poor form in the ODIs and T20Is, the fantasy cricket news will hint at crowning Kohli as the vice-captain of the fantasy team. He can be backed to register his first ton of this tour in the Tests as he has improved his game a lot and his skills are unmatched.
Billed to be the second version of Rahul Dravid, Cheteshwar Pujara can score a lot of points in Test especially given that he will receive two chances to bat. He can easily score a fifty in either of the two innings and contribute valuable points to your fantasy team. The fantasy cricket tips experts will advise keeping Pujara as the vice-captain.
The wildcard from the Indian team to take the vice-captain position in fantasy cricket is the Indian cricket team’s vice-captain, Ajinkya Rahane. He is known for his solidity in the middle and the testing conditions in New Zealand will not affect him much. Expect him to score a lot of runs with the bat.
After a splendid performance in the ODI series against India, Ross Taylor will look to continue his fine form in the Test matches as well. Taylor had won the man of the series, however, given that India’s bowlers know a lot about him, keeping him as the captain will be a massive risk. Hence, naming Taylor as the vice-captain will be a fantastic option.
Captain Kane is one of the best batters in world cricket across all three formats of the game. Williamson is one of the best bets for the series as he would be raring to get in the middle and lead his team from the front. The Cricket Lounge’s Fantasy Cricket Tips suggest that he is the safest bet for the post of captain in your fantasy cricket team.
