The ODI series against Sri Lanka is over. Time for another series. The 3 ODI series between India and New Zealand will begin at home from January 18. Kiwis key players Kane Williamson, Tim Southee and Trent Boult are away from this series. Even without three experienced players.. New Zealand is a strong team. There are many young players in that team. They are also waiting for opportunities. If they get a chance like this, they are breaking out with stormy innings. Pakistan’s visit to New Zealand is proof of this.
Latham in form..
Even if Kane Williamson is not there.. Latham can face the spin efficiently in his place. Tom Latham, who scored a century and 2 half-centuries in the 2 Test matches against Pakistan, can be a good leader for the team against India. It is known that Latham scored 145 runs in the match against India at that time.
New Zealand’s biggest weapon is Devon Conway, who scored 2 centuries and 2 half-centuries in the tour of Pakistan. He scored a total of 153 runs in the ODI series and became the player of the series. When India toured New Zealand last year, Conway showed the Indian bowlers with the bat. The biggest challenge facing the Indian bowlers right now is to contain Conway.
Sothei, Phillips Boom..
Glenn Phillips has been creating wonders in limited overs cricket for the last one and a half years. Phillips scored an unbeaten half-century against Pakistan and played a vital role in New Zealand’s 2-wicket victory in the third ODI. On the other hand, in the absence of Tim Southee and Trent Boult, the responsibility of handling the bowling department has now fallen on Ish Sodhi. India’s batsmen should be wary of Sodhi, who is at the top of the T20 rankings. Sothei took 8 wickets in the first Test and 5 wickets in the second Test against Pakistan. He took 3 important wickets in 2 ODIs. Along with the ball, he can also contribute with the bat in the lower order. Scored half-century in Karachi Test.
