Team News for India
For the last couple of years, India hadn’t witnessed any series loss as yet. During these days, the tri-color nation defeated several teams including England, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Australia in a thumping and almost one-sided manner.
In regards to the current magnificent performances of the team, it can be said that no target is too big for India. Virat Kohli and Co. is fully prepared to chase down any target even if it goes beyond 7 RPO. In the last few years, India has successfully chased quite a few 300+ total comfortably.
India’s bowling performance has also improved a lot in recent times. The combination of youths and myriad bowling options including the likes of Hardik, Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav Axar Patel, Bumrah, and others. They offer India’s spin options and medium bowling choices in the crucial overs. However, their good bowling has now almost shut the door for India’s prominent test faces like Shami, Ashwin, Jadeja and Umesh Yadav.
As long as India, current ODI bowlers perform well, the team combination is likely to witness no change in limited overs internationals. Eventually, at the end of the day, only results and wins matter.
Team India’s batting is getting stronger too. Cricket batting is also perfectly poised. The opening pair of Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan is set to open the Indian innings in the upcoming series against New Zealand starting today at Mumbai. Rohit Sharma might have to opt for the third position with Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni will come down at number 4 and 5th spot respectively.
Probable XI: Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Manish Pandey/Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk) and Hardik Pandya
Team News for New Zealand
According to the Kiwi star batsman Tom Latham, he is practicing hard these days and is ready to give the befitting reply to Indian spinners at Mumbai’s turning tracks in today’s match. His performance in the final warm-up tie against Board president’s XI was stunning. He scored a fluent 108 of 97 balls with 7 hits to the fence and 2 maximum. Watch out for him.
New Zealand’s opening pair of Martin Guptill and Colin Munroe is quite dangerous. Once they get the rhythm back, it is quite unlikely for any bowler to keep them under control. They are always hungry for runs and mostly deal in boundaries and sixes. Indian fast bowlers have to get them out in the early stage of the match.
Veteran batsman Ross Taylor will play the role of a mentor in this series. In the last outing against the Board President XI, he hit a magnificent century demonstrating his flawless batting technique and the same aggression that he showed a few years back. For the Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson, nothing to worry about. He is a first-class all-rounder and an important member of the team. He is adept at formulating the game plan as per the situation of the match. He will do everything possible to shatter India’s dream.
Probable XI: Henry Nicholls/George Worker, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk) and Ish Sodhi
