AUS vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Updates for 1st ODI
AUS vs NZ Dream11 Prediction: Australia (AUS) will be clashing against New Zealand (NZ) in the 1st ODI match at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns on Tuesday. Australia recently won a home ODI series against Zimbabwe 2-1, but were upset by a loss in the final game. Against Zimbabwe, the game’s top opener David Warner scored the highest total of 164 runs, and Cameron Green claimed eight wickets. The squad does not feature Mitchell Marsh, who was hurt in the opening game against Zimbabwe. Marnus Labuschagne will likely start for the hosts in place of the starting eleven from the previous game.
In their most recent series, New Zealand defeated West Indies 1-2 in a three-match ODI series. Following a loss in the first game, New Zealand won the last game by pursuing a lofty 302-run goal. Together, Fin Allen and Daryl Mitchell scored the highest total of 124 runs, and the fast bowling combination of Trent Boult and Tim Southee claimed 15 wickets. Australia is the favourite to win on Tuesday since they have only lost once in their last five games against the Kiwis and because they have the home field advantage.

Top Picks for AUS vs NZ Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
The top-ranked Australian in the ICC ODI Batters Rankings is left-handed opening batsman David Warner. In three games against Zimbabwe, he scored the most runs—164—including two fifty-sevens at an average of 54.67 and a strike rate of 95.91.
Former captain Steve Smith is in excellent form in one-day international cricket, scoring two unbeaten 40-plus runs against Zimbabwe in the opening two games. In 133 ODI games, he has so far sacored 4555 runs at an average of 43.79 and a strike rate of 88.12.
After a lengthy absence, New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson made his ODI debut against West Indies, scoring 34 runs. In 152 ODI games, Williamson has amassed 6207 runs at an outstanding average of 47.38 and strike rate of 81.66.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
In the first game against Zimbabwe, star Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell struck an unbeaten 32 runs off just 9 balls, and he added 19 runs in the final game. Despite his underwhelming ODI statistics, his off-spin spells make him a good all-rounder choice.
The 23-year-old batting all-rounder Cameron Green was outstanding against Zimbabwe with the ball. He paid only 8.5 credits on Dream11 and got the most wickets—eight—in just three matches—at an amazing economy rate of 3.17.
Top Picks – Bowlers
The hot-spinner Adam Zampa continued his impressive form by taking six wickets in the first two ODI games against Zimbabwe. In 70 ODI matches, Zampa has 109 wickets at an average of 31.04 and a current economy rate of 5.50.
The Kiwi fast Trent Boult, who presently ranked first in the ICC ODI Bowlers rankings, has been in excellent form recently. On the West Indies tour, Boult took the most wickets with eight, including three for 18 in the second game.
Tim Southee, a veteran New Zealand bowler, maintained his recent fine form against the West Indies, taking seven wickets in three games with an economy rate of just 4. He can win the first match easily for only 8.5 credits and is readily available.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
The dynamic all-rounder Glenn Phillips has had a successful start to his ODI career and expected to start the first game. Glenn is only accessible for 8.0 credits on the Dream11 platform and has 110 runs in four ODI innings.
