He always stays calm and cool and takes rational decisions on crucial moments which many times have saved his team from losing. Jimmy Neesham is one beast of a player as he is an all-rounder. He can hit the ball finely as he has some serious strength while Daryl Mitchell is another man who can bat magnificently.  Ish Sodhi is right arm leg-break bowler of the New Zealand team who has brilliant previous records. In pace bowling, they have the likes of Trent Boult, Adam Milne, Tim Southee and Kylie Jamieson. All these pace bowlers will be crucial for New Zealand as everyone is aware of the fact that Australian pitches favours the pacers,
