My Dream XI


Both Tim Siefert and Glenn Phillips have been conflicting for their separate groups. Be that as it may, among the two, Phillips has a superior record recently and thus, he gets a place in the side.


Corey Anderson began off the season gradually however in the course of the last couple of matches, he has appeared of enhancement, hitting bowlers everywhere throughout the recreation center. Recorded as a batsman, Anderson is additionally a skilled bowler and he has begun bowling in the last three matches, eating up four wickets.

With scores of 29, 20, 27, 78, 9, 49, 8, 61 and five wickets so far in the competition, Daryl Mitchell is one of the fundamental reasons why Knights are over the table. The all-rounder is as his life and has been compensated for his exhibitions with a place in the New Zealand squad for the T20I arrangement against India.

Dignitary Brownlie, who began the competition with a 99, has been having a blended competition as he has been a bit conflicting with the willow. In the amusement against Auckland, he will hope to score his initial fifty since that rankling thump in his first match of the period.

Notwithstanding several innings, Auckland's Craig Cachopa has a begin each time he has played, yet has neglected to change over them into enormous scores. He will hope to do that in the diversion against Knights and go into the knockouts with some certainty added to his repertoire.

Daniell Bell-Drummond will join these four men as the fifth batsman of the side. The opener is Auckland's abroad select as he went along with them from English side Kent for this season.


In spite of the fact that Brett Hampton hasn't bowled in the competition, he has completed a splendid activity with the bat for the Knights. He has played some great thumps for them which incorporates a 64 in the past diversion. He will hope to proceed with his great keep running in the competition and help his group keep up their lead at the highest point of the table.

Auckland have gotten a major lift in front of their diversion against Knights as they have acquired opening batsman Colin Munro, who has been discharged by the Black Caps in front of the fifth ODI against India. His expansion to the group at the highest point of the request will most likely reinforce their batting line-up.


Considering the enormous sums spent on extravagant batsmen, going for shabby yet powerful bowling alternatives is an astute thought.

Ronnie Hira has been working superbly for Auckland as he has been conservative with the ball and in the meantime, gets some vital wickets occasionally.

Pacer Matthew Quinn is one more bowler whose cost is on the lower side and in the meantime, has conveyed for his group all through the competition. He has taken nine wickets at a decent economy up until this point, including 4/20 against Canterbury in his group's past amusement.

Leg-spinner Tarun Nethula began off the competition gradually yet bobbed back in style as he came back with figures of 6/23 in his group's last amusement. After that tremendous execution, he is relied upon to hold his place in the side notwithstanding the incorporation of Ish Sodhi in the squad.

Skipper and Vice-Captain: Daryl Mitchell and Colin Munro

Player to look out for: Colin Munro

Colin Munro was with the Black Caps for the initial three ODIs against India before he was demonstrated the entryway after a string of poor exhibitions. He was in this way discharged from the side yet has been incorporated for the T20I arrangement, an organization in which he has three centuries – the second-most by any batsman.

Munro will hope to get some match practice before he goes up against the Indians in the first T20I one week from now.
