Preview Of 2nd ODI Match: India vs New Zealand

On November 21 in Raipur, the second ODI between India and New Zealand will occur. This venue is hosting its maiden international cricket game. The Men in Blue won the opening one-day international by 12 runs to establish a 1-0 series lead. In the second game, the Kiwis will be in a must-win situation. India would be able to win yet another ODI series at home with a victory in game two.

The second ODI game between India and New Zealand is on Wednesday, but it will not be similar to the first ODI. The first ODI scored 686 runs and was a high-scoring game. However, the second ODI is not going to be as high scoring. India has the upper hand in this series and will be the favourite to win this game. New Zealand will start the team and try to take the lead, but India will be ready for them.

Shubman Gill smashed numerous records while scoring his first ODI double-century. He achieved the youngest batting double century in ODI history. In addition, he joined Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, and Ishan Kishan as the fifth Indian batsman to reach a double century.

Michael Bracewell batted brilliantly for the Kiwis and broke many records himself. He scored his second ODI century while batting at number seven. He also shared a 162-run partnership with Mitchell Santner (57), the third-highest for seven wickets.

Their ODI squads were made public by both teams. Rohit Sharma will lead the Men in Blue, and Tom Latham will lead the Kiwi team. The team’s regular captain, Kane Williamson, has chosen to skip the tour. Along with him, other players like Trent Boult and Tim Southee are absent.

The two sides have played 114 ODIs, with India winning 56 and the Kiwis winning 50. The two-way series between the two teams has always been hotly contested, and the ongoing series expect to be similar.

The Indian squad wants to get off to a strong start. The two players who have excelled the most for their squad, Shubman Gill and Mohammad Siraj, will be the centre of attention. In the second ODI, there will be chances for others to improve.

The middle order is now vacant due to Shreyas Iyer’s departure from the series. Ishan Kishan batted at number five, and Suryakumar Yadav at number four in the first ODI. It’s expected that he will keep his job. Additionally absent from India are Akshar Patel and KL Rahul, who will not participate in the New Zealand series owing to personal obligations.

After registering the first ODI win, the management is unlikely to tinker with the playing XI. So it is another chance for all the bowlers to improve their performance.

The absence of Tim Southee and Trent Boult has already compromised the Kiwi bowling attack. It was terrible that the veteran pacers were not present for the opening ODI. The Kiwis did not select Ish Sodhi to participate in the opening ODI. Going into the second ODI, the management would undoubtedly desire to tweak the bowling attack.

The batting order is also severely hampered by the absence of Kane Williamson. This time, they have a batting order that is not as potent as it once was. They have some talented players but not many who are reliable. However, the club did not notice their absence, thanks to the other batters. Bracewell will be the centre of attention, especially considering his defeat in the opening ODI. Kiwis have a history of punching above their weight. Thus the team can anticipate a challenging matchup against the hosts in Raipur.
