IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI Preview: Can India Level the Series on 27th November?

IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI Preview: India will look to bounce back and square the series to one all after yesterday's loss against the home side in Auckland. New Zealand won the match quite comprehensively, mainly because of Kane Williamson and the century-maker Tom Latham in the 1st ODI, played on 25th November 2022.

IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI Preview: Pitch Report

The track of Seddon Park in Hamilton will suit the batters more than the bowling side. Chasing might also be a good option on this wicket, just like the Eden Park surface in Auckland.

The Kiwis chased down 307 runs with complete ease despite losing the top three batters early.

The weather report is not that great for the Sunday clash between the Kiwis and the men in blue side. The forecast says that 91 per cent are the chances of rains during this must-win encounter for Dhawan and his men.

IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI Preview: Likely Playing XI of India

Shubman Gill, Shikhar Dhawan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, and Yuzvendra Chahal/Kuldeep Yadav. 

Team India aims to level the series on Sunday after losing the first ODI on Friday. The Indian openers gave the team a solid start. But the middle-order batters couldn't capitalize on that.

After the brilliant opening partnership of 124 runs between Dhawan and Gill, only Shreyas Iyer guided the innings well with Sanju Samson and Washington Sundar.

Gill and Dhawan played well, and while they were at the crease, the score looked to reach at least the 330-run mark.

But Pant and Suryakumar failed to bat well, which is why the Kiwis successfully restricted the visitors to 306 runs in their quota of fifty overs.

India should play with two Deepaks in the next match

The visitors need to strengthen their middle order and add an extra bowling option. If the men in blue lose the second ODI match tomorrow, they will also lose the series like their past tours of New Zealand.

India should add Deepak Hooda and Deepak Chahar to their playing XI for the must-win encounter.

Rishabh Pant can be dropped, and Deepak Hooda might be a better inclusion in Pant’s place. The visitors can also replace Arshdeep Singh with Deepak Chahar.

Singh went for plenty in the first ODI. He was an easy target for Williamson and team. 

Chahar is coming from an injury layoff. But he is a quality bowler who can do the job for the team. 

Umran Malik and Shardul Thakur were the only wicket-takers from the last match. Malik had a good day, and he got two wickets in the first ODI, while Thakur did a decent job with the ball.

But Shardul needs to contribute more with the bat. Adding Hooda might help India, as he will be an extra bowling option and add depth to the batting. Hooda even recently picked up a four-wicket haul in a T20I game India won.

IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI Preview: Playing XI of New Zealand

Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson, Tom Latham, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Mitch Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Adam Milne and Matt Henry.

Kane Williamson and co have started the series on a winning note. They will look to extend their superb run against India in the fifty overs format at home.

With the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 not too far away, New Zealand will look to build a solid for that ICC mega event in India and end their trophy-winning drought.

In the last match, Tom Latham batted beautifully in the run chase of 307 runs. Latham's classic ton allowed the home side to be 1-0 up in this three-match series.

Now they will look to give a similar performance and win the series tomorrow. The hosts may not go with any change after a good win on Friday. 

Before Latham and Williamson guided the Kiwis to a brilliant seven-wicket victory, the bowlers made a remarkable comeback in the match, especially when the team needed the most.

Ferguson and Southee picked up the wickets of the Indian openers and never allowed anyone batter to settle down. New Zealand won the 1st match mainly because they handled the pressure situations better than Team India.
