In the first ODI against India, New Zealand displayed their first class in which Ross Taylor’s heroics helped most of the part to pull off the highest run chase in ODI history. The Kiwis played their second innings in perfection to their role by the quartet of Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Taylor and Tom Latham.
To dismiss the opposite batsman on other hand, India struggled. Jasprit Bumrah though is an economical bowler couldn’t take a single wicket while Kuldeep Yadav picked two wickets only conceding 84 runs in his 10 overs. New Zealand’s small ground going to test the Indian bowlers once again.
If India got a chance to bat first then the trio of Virat, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul will take team’s past total of 350 runs and if they failed to do so then New Zealand will take away the match once again. If India bowls first then their chances of winning the match also increases by leaps and bounds.
India team contains chase masters like Kohli, Rahul and Kedar in form. If Kiwi set the target of 375 runs, then also India cannot be ruled out of the contest. Most of the part depends on the toss in the second ODI as the team who bats second will have more advantage.
In the past, Indian unit has came back from behind to win a series and they win the game starting as the favorites. Irrespective of all the toss and other reasons, if Virat’s men bring their A game into the field then no one could ever stop them from leveling the series.
Prediction says India wins the second ODI between New Zealand and India
