India Vs New Zealand 2nd Odi
India vs New Zealand, 2nd ODI: The Indian cricket team will play the second ODI against New Zealand in Raipur today. Team India defeated New Zealand in the first match in Hyderabad to take a 1-0 lead in the three ODI series. Now Team India is focused on winning the series. Meanwhile, New Zealand will be looking to get back into the series and win this match to level the score at 1-1. However, it will not be easy for New Zealand. Because they will enter the ring without their main players. Team India got great confidence after winning the last over in the first match.
Indian opener Shubman Gill scored a double century in the first match. He became the fifth player from India to score a double century in ODI cricket. But the middle order of the Indian team failed. At the same time, the bowlers were also disappointing. Because even after scoring 349 runs, Team India managed to win by just 12 runs.
Changes in Team India Playing XI?
The challenge before Rohit is to go with 11 players in the second match. When the team wins, the captain refrains from making changes to the winning combination. But it seems that Rahul Dravid and Rohit pair will make some key changes in the second match. Shardul Thakur was picked in the playing-11 to strengthen the batting in the first match but he proved to be very expensive. Shardul scored 54 runs in 7.2 overs and took two wickets.
It seems that Rohit may give a chance to fast bowler Umran Malik in his place. Umran’s pace can cause trouble for the batsmen. He proved this many times. In the recent Sri Lankan series, Umran impressed with his speed. In such circumstances, Umran may get a chance in the playing-11 instead of Shardul. There is no chance of another change in Team India.
New Zealand Playing-11..
The New Zealand bowlers were badly damaged in the first match. Even in batting, the team could not perform well. In the end, Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner’s storming innings brought the team closer to victory. But Kiwis team could not win. A batsman who stands at one end like Kane Williamson is not in the team. Tom Latham, who is captaining the team in this series, has to see what kind of team he will field in the second match. But there is a possibility of change in this team. Ish Sodhi did not play the first match due to injury. He may join the playing-11 in the second match.
India’s Probable Playing 11: Rohit Sharma (captain), Subhaman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wicket keeper), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Umran Malik, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
New Zealand Probable Playing 11: Tom Latham (keeper/captain), Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner.
