The Today’s match is just like any other match of cricket, which is filled with thrill, adventure and spine chilling moments from the very beginning of the match.
The match between New Zealand and India was started with the toss which is won by Indian captain MS Dhoni and as he is concerned about the field which is quietly filled with dew and this factor is duly kept in mind by this Indian captain as it will going to be an effective in the day later, while the match will going to have the debut of Hardik Pandya, while leaving behind Jayant Yadav, Mandeep Singh, and Dhawal Kulkarni.
So the possibilities for amazing performance on this pitch is not very much by the Indian spinners, said by Dhoni. They will try to bowl whatever they have before the dew comes off, while the same mindset is being used by NZ captain Kane Williamson.
As expected the match gets started with the hands of Umesh Yadav, J sprit Bhumrah and Hardik Pandya and after them, two awesome spinners are there like Amit Mishra and Axar Patel.
Live Score: NZ- 190/10 (43.5)
The New Zealand has tried something new by giving rest to the fast bowlers Trent Boult and Matt Henry and bringing back Tim Southee and Corey Anderson, who also missed the Test series because of the injuries. With Anderson playing as a pure batsman, New Zealand went in with five bowlers – three seamers in Southee, Doug Bracewell, and James Neesham, and two spinners in Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi.
So the Possible Batting lineup of India is:
India: 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Ajinkya Rahane, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Manish Pandey, 5 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 6 Kedar Jadhav, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Axar Patel, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Umesh Yadav, 11 Jasprit Bumrah.
And For New Zealand: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Tom Latham, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Corey Anderson, 6 Luke Ronchi (wk), 7 James Neesham, 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Doug Bracewell, 11 Ish Sodhi.
The pitch seems to be quite good for Seamers as the pitch is seam friendly and stroke players will definitely go to take the benefit of playing on a field like this.
This is one of the best test pitch rights, compared to other pitchers in the world. There was a good feeling in India after outsmarting New Zealand with 3-0 in the test series and come into ODI series and has become quite a favourite team.
While the team of New Zealand is quite sick of the spin and will have to play carefully while marking the desperate to bring victory to their team.
