In the second ODI against India, New Zealand won the toss and chose to bowl. The team made a change. Michael Bracewell replaces Adam Milne. Till now the pitch is covered with covers. So I think it is suitable for seamers. Hope our pacers get off to a good start. Said Kiwis captain Williamson.
Team India captain Shikhar Dhawan said that if he wins the toss, he will choose to bowl first. But he said that he will bat with a positive attitude. India made two changes. Deepak Chahar replaced Shardul Thakur and Deepak Hooda replaced Sanju Samson.
India looks strong in batting. In the first ODI, openers Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill gave a fantastic start. Shreyas and Sanju Samson built the innings. But in the middle order, Pant and Surya returned to a low score. Pant’s failure continues in ODIs as well. Surya needs to excel in ODIs. And finally, Washington Sundar played the finishing innings. If all the batsmen work together, a big score is sure.
Will the bowling improve!
Improving the bowling is essential for India. Our bowlers could not even save the target of 300 in the first ODI. They need to find ways to tie Latham and Williamson, who have been consistently good against India for years in this format. The young pacer Umran Malik He impressed with a speed of over 145 kmph. ArshDeep Swing He struggled with pace even though he had the ability to do it. Shardul Thakur The rhythm is wrong. Spinner Chahal Also needs to recover. Now the sixth bowling Lack of alternative has become a problem for India. All of the top 6 batsmen who have played in Auckland have bowled. Can’t do it. In this context, the sixth bowler To overcome the problem TeamIndia Allrounder Deepak Huda was taken. Shardul In place of Deepak Chahar came into the team.
Kiwis in force
On the other hand New Zealand Entering the ring with redoubled enthusiasm. Wants to continue the winning streak on home soil.
