Pick these players for your Howzat fantasy cricket team and stand a chance to beat the odds and win big!
H Vihari | IND- With R Sharma out with a calf injury and impressing the Indian selectors with a solid century against NZ XI, H Vihari would be hopeful of opening the innings along with M Agarwal
K Jaimeson | NZ- Debuting against India in an ODI series is no child’s play, but Jaimeson proved his worth by picking up 3 key wickets in 2 ODIs. Indian batsmen will be wary of his frantic pace in the Test series
A Patel | NZ- Mumbai-born A Patel has made it to the New Zealand Test squad to face India. It’s a dream come true for this lad who has picked up 22 wickets in just 7 tests since his debut against Pakistan
S Gill | IND- A right-handed top-order batsman from Punjab, Gill is known for his penchant for scoring big runs. He was the Vice-Captain of the 2018 U-19 World Cup-winning squad of India. He debuted against New Zealand last year and will be keen to cement his place in Team India
