India vs New Zealand Match ‘Do or Die’
India vs New Zealand 2nd ODI Match will be played at Pune’s MCA Stadium on Wednesday. The match starts at 1.30 pm. In the India vs New Zealand Match India lost the first ODI in Mumbai. So, for them, this match is do or die. At the same time, the Indian team has not lost two consecutive bilateral series matches over the last four years. The last time Pakistan did this in 2013 If New Zealand wins this match, and then it will be the first time in 29 years when the New Zealand team wins the ODI series on Indian ground.
After losing the India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Match of the one-day series, the Indian cricket team has now got a chance to do or die in the India vs New Zealand 2nd ODI on Wednesday. To stay in the match, he must win in every situation. The New Zealand team defeated India by 6 wickets in the India vs New Zealand 1st ODI in Mumbai and they have moved forward in the 3 match series 1-0. If the New Zealand team wins the India vs New Zealand 2nd ODI at the Pune then the Indian team will lose the India vs New Zealand Series. India had won the ODI series against Australia on the home ground before the series against New Zealand, which won its series in the sixth one-dayer since June 2016. If the India lose to Pune one-day, then their unbeatable sequence will also be broken.
The Indian team did not appear in the form in Mumbai, but has full confidence in returning to Pune. Virat Kohli scored 31st ODI century in the last match but the rest of the players could not get support from him. Trent Bolt sent Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma to the pavilion. Now both of these will have to find ways to handle the bowler’s swing and accuracy. Indian captains would like to retain their goals as they need to get runs from their bats for big scores.
Kohli played the wining match against England on this ground in January. Fourth is worrying for the number of team management. So far 11 of the batsmen have been tried after the 2015 World Cup. Kedar Jadhav Played on Sunday at number four but failed. Dinesh Karthik, who came in at number five, added 73 runs with captain Kohli but lost his wicket,. When the former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni came for batting, more than 20 overs were left, but he got out after scoring 25 runs in 42 balls.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav gave 125 runs in the bowling and took only one wicket. Both will improve their mistakes and perform better. They must also stop Tom Latham from playing sweep and reverse sweep shot. There is no hope of any change in fast bowlers.
Team New Zealand
On the other hand, after a spectacular win, New Zealand will be proud of them. Captain Ken Williamson could not make runs in the practice match and the India vs New Zealand 1st ODI that would like to play the big innings.
Martin Guptill and Colin Munro were not able to turn the good start into big innings and would like to improve this mistake here. New Zealand team can take the second spinner in the form of Ish Sodhi with Mitchell Santner. Left-arm fast bowler Trent Boult proved to be effective for the New Zealand team. They took the first wicket and brought the team India to the backfoot. Later, Mitchell Santner did not have the chance to handle India with a crucial wicket in the middle order. The bowling of the team will once again revolve around the bolt. In the form of Tim Southee, the New Zealand team has another good bowler who can disturb the Indian batsmen.
Big Responsibility At Rohit Sharma
In the Ind vs NZ First ODI, Rohit Sharma was dismissed with only 20 runs. His partner Shikhar Dhawan (9) was also flop. Due to lack of good opening, pressure came on the middle order in the Mumbai ODI. The team’s score was low. If Rohit succeeds in getting a good start in Pune, then it will not only allow the latter batsmen to play freely, but the team will also be able to score big scores.
In the Ind vs NZ First ODI, Rohit will also have an opportunity to complete his one thousand ODI runs this year. If Rohit gets 78 runs, then he will reach the ground. Along with that, he will become the second cricketer after doing so. Rohit has scored 922 runs at an average of 65.85 in 16 ODIs this year. Which has 4 Century and 5 half Centuries.
