NZ-XI vs AU-XI Dream11 Team | Australia XI vs New Zealand XI Preview | Fantasy Team

New Zealand XI defeated Australia XI in the second ODI to level the series and give the Australians something to ponder. The Aussies were in brilliant form winning back to back ODI series against India and Pakistan, but they have looked vulnerable against the Kiwis. They won the first match of the series, but New Zealand weren’t far off and could have won the match. They put any lingering doubts about their ability in the 2nd ODI where they defeated the hosts comfortably.

Australia must have thought that the returning David Warner and Steven Smith would make their team even stronger. However, it has not been that straightforward. David Warner got out for a duck and while Steven Smith looked good in his 89 runs knock, Australia have problems which are evident. They need to strike a balance before heading out to England for the World cup.

Both the teams will give everything to win the 3rd ODI to boost their confidence. The match should make for an exciting watch.
