England vs New Zealand on September 10


Get ready for an intense showdown at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton, as England takes on New Zealand in the second ODI of the New Zealand tour of England 2023. New Zealand holds the upper hand in the four-match ODI series 1-0 after a convincing eight-wicket victory in the first ODI. As England took to the crease first, openers Harry Brook and Dawid Malan set the stage with an impressive 80-run partnership. Malan's dismissal by Rachin Ravindra marked the first breakthrough. Subsequently, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler added another vital 87 runs. While the other English batters contributed brief runs, the team managed to post a formidable total of 291 runs for the loss of six wickets in 50 overs. Tim Southee and Rachin Ravindra emerged as standout bowlers for New Zealand. New Zealand's response was nothing short of spectacular. Devon Conway, alongside Will Young, initiated proceedings with a solid 60-run partnership. Young's departure, courtesy of Adil Rashid, was England's next success. Then, Henry Nicholls briefly partnered with Conway before the latter, in tandem with Daryl Mitchell, orchestrated a phenomenal 170-run partnership. Both batters notched up centuries, steering New Zealand to victory in just 45 overs. David Willey and Adil Rashid managed to pick up a wicket each.

Best economical pick – Keeping in mind the pitch conditions, the New Zealand pacer, Lockie Ferguson, will likely be aided by the wicket and will be able to extract good bounce and some lateral movement. In the previous game, the pacer claimed a solitary wicket and proved to be quite economical as he gave just 50 runs in his nine overs. Lockie will look to replicate a similar performance in the next game and look to dent the rival batting line-up.

Top captains & vice captains In the first ODI, Devon Conway slammed an unbeaten (111* off 121 balls) century, which featured 13 boundaries and a solitary maximum, respectively. Considering his fine form, the swashbuckling southpaw will be hungry to score big yet again in the forthcoming match in a bid to help his side earn another win. Dawid Malan is a top-order batter, accumulating 823 runs in ODI matches, and is known for his ability to anchor the innings. He can be your vice captain for this match.

Smart pick – Daryl Mitchell is a valuable all-rounder, contributing 947 runs and 11 wickets in ODI matches, and is known for his gritty batting and handy medium-pace bowling.

Cautious Pick – Reece Topley’s performance in the last few matches has been unimpressive, so he can be avoided in your fantasy team.

My XI – Devon Conway (Captain), Dawid Malan (Vice-Captain), Lockie Ferguson, Daryl Mitchell, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Henry Nicholls, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone
