IND vs NZ 2nd ODI Mount Maunganui: Match Preview
The first ODI was tipped to be quite a close contest between 2 evenly matched sides. Yes, India always started as the superior ones but the fact that New Zealand was playing at home made this the series to watch out for. Many thought India might be tested, well, they still might be but it is safe to say after watching the first ODI that Virat Kohli and his men will certainly start as favourites once again.
They had previously won an ODI match in New Zealand in 2009 as the India team continued to recreate history from where they left in Australia. Meanwhile, India is expected to play the same team as the only man in question- Ambati Rayudu hardly got an opportunity last time around.
As far as the New Zealand Cricket Team is concerned, they would truly believe that they have all the resources to turn it around. If they can get off to a good start it could certainly put pressure on the Indian spinners who could be forced to bowl differently. On the other hand, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal would be relishing the fact that the boundaries at Mount Maunganui are quite long in size which will always keep them interested.
If India wins they would start believing that they could even win 5-0 maybe and if New Zealand makes a comeback and the fact that Virat Kohli is leaving after the 3rd game, the home side but just be sudden favourites to even win the series. Kohli would be wishing to seal it before he leaves and it would be interesting to see how it all shapes up.
