India vs New Zealand – Team Performance in the Past Matches
After the second ODI was abandoned due to rain, the third ODI match will be crucial for both sides to make it alive. New Zealand won the first ODI match by 7 wickets and make a lead of 1-0. But the unexpected rain interruption changed the fate of the game. New Zealand was fully confident for the second match with a win over India. India was also aiming to win the match to tie the series.
Winning the toss, skipper Williamson opted to bowl first. Shubhman Gill and Shikhar Dhawan opened the game, but Dhawan went out early. Gill looked fine, striking 2 boundaries before the rain arrived. Gill was in 45 not out when the match was called off. Suryakumar Yadav was in an attacking mode, scoring 34 runs off 25 balls. In 12.5 overs, India scored a total of 89 runs in one wicket loss. The game was reduced to 29 overs per side earlier. Rain once again brings a stoppage in the game, reducing India’s chance to win the game. Now, India will have a chance to level the series in the final ODI.
Tim Southee and Matt Henry opened the game for New Zealand with the new balls and Henry got the wicket of the skipper Dhawan.
Deepak Hooda and Deepak Chahar were preferred ahead of Sanju Samson and Shardul Thakur in the second ODI when the 5-bowler strategy failed in the first ODI. Let’s wait and see whether the management persists with the same combination or not. India should focus more and come back with a strong performance to level the series.
If Tom Latham and Kane Williamson continue to play like the first ODI, New Zealand may seal the series.
