Match Preview

Following top-notch exhibitions in the lately concluded 5-match T20Is, the Indian cricket team would be aiming to whitewash the hosts in the one-dayers, starting from the game at Hamilton. Led by Virat Kohli, the Men in Blue would be looking to settle the scores for the defeat at the hands of Kiwis in the semi-final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Although Rohit Sharma won’t be there in the squad, the Indian contingent looks potent to dominate Williamson & Co in the opening encounter.

Meanwhile, the Kane Williamson-captained side would simply be wishing to avoid a series defeat at the hands of tourists. A victory at Seddon Park would not just give them a lead in the 3-match ODIs, but also boost their self-confidence for the remaining tour against Kohli’s men.

Teams Preview

New Zealand

Martin Guptill and Tom Latham were in a good nick in the domestic one-dayers and would be expected to put a decent start to the Kiwi total. Guptill, in particular, would be expected to better his numbers considering he holds immense big-hitting prowess. Skipper Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor would hold the key for New Zealand in case the openers fail to come up with an impressive show. Taylor averages 42.14 in 32 ODIs played against the Men In Blue and has notched 2 hundred and 7 fifties to date.

All-rounders James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme can be a menace with their destruction laying potency and once set, the duo could snatch the game away from the hands of Kohli’s men. Bowling wise, Tim Southee and Hamish Benett would be expected to grapple the early dismissals for the Kiwis in the much-coveted encounter. With the pacers competing in the home conditions, one could bank on them to put up impressive numbers. Leggie Ish Sodhi was in a terrific form in the freshly finished T20Is and along with fellow spinner, Mitchell Santner could be a vital cog in the middle-overs.

New Zealand Actual Playing XI:

Tom Latham, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Henry Nicholls, Hamish Bennett, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, TA Blundell, James Neesham, TG Southee

India

With Rohit Sharma nowhere in the picture, Prithvi Shaw is likely to get the nod in the ODIs considering he scored a 150 in the practice one-dayers against New Zealand XI. Lokesh Rahul is enjoying a dream run at the moment and is likely to don the role of an opener alongside Shaw in the coming duel. Skipper Virat Kohli was on a rampage in the home series against West Indies and Australia wherein he notched a string of half-centuries to his name. In case the trio topples, the onus would on Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey for getting the team to a safe total.

The duo was in a fine nick in the T20s against New Zealand and would be anticipated to anchor the innings whilst going berserk on occasionally. Not to mention, Kedar Jadhav would make his way into the team and as he is an experienced campaigner, his presence could at least keep the scoreboard ticking for the Men in Blue at Seddon Park.

In the bowling department, yorker specialist Jasprit Bumrah was among the top performers for India in the last couple of T20Is and will be expected to rack up match-winning numbers alongside swing sensation Mohammed Shami. Navdeep Saini holds immense pace and could pose a threat amidst the swing and seam conditions. Ravindra Jadeja can bat and bowl decently and with spinner Yuzvendra Chahal would look to trouble the Kiwis in the middle-overs.

Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, SN Thakur, Ravindra Jadeja, JJ Bumrah, Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami

High chances of rain are being predicted in the first innings which could act as a hindrance to the gameplay. Bowlers would be up for entertainment with the seam and swing offered, while the batsmen would look to capitalize on the limited opportunities offered.

Venue Details

Not a high scoring venue, the wicket at Seddon park has 233 as the average 1st innings total. With the overcast conditions and showers in the innings, one could expect 250-260 as a par total for the forthcoming duel.

Toss Prediction

The toss winning team should look to bowl first on this occasion. In ODIs, 23 out of 36 matches played at this venue have been won by the team bowling first. Moreover, chances of rain are being depicted in the middle innings and thus, the team batting second would have an advantage in case the DLS method comes into play.

Winning Prediction

Indian cricket team would be high on momentum following their swashbuckling performances in the recently finished T20Is.

New Zealand, on the other hand, has had a torrid run in the international arena since the latter half of 2019. While there is an over-reliance on one or more players in the Kiwi tent, there’s just the right amount of balance in the Indian counterpart which makes them the favorites for the coming bout.
