Match Preview

After a much-awaited win in the first ODI, hosts New Zealand would be breathing a sigh of relief and will now advance into the second ODI with an intent to script a 2-0 win at Auckland. The 5-0 loss in the T20Is amidst the home conditions would have shaken the hosts to the core, and with a victory coming in the recent outing, the Kiwis are likely to be rejuvenated for putting up a stellar show in the series decider. Stand-in skipper Tom Latham led the team up front, and along with the performances from Nicholls, Taylor, and Guptill managed to chase a mighty total of 348 set by the Indian counterpart.

Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team would look to better their bowling prowess as it was the cause of their failure in the first ODI. Batting wise they look right on spot, but, it is the bowling that cost them the match in spite of posting 348 runs on board. And not to forget, they have lost very rarely when defending 340+ totals in the ODIs. The likes of Shardul Thakur (1/80) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/64) were the most expensive bowlers from the Indian lot, whilst the batters put up a satisfying effort throughout.

Teams Preview

New Zealand

Martin Guptill (32) looked in a fine nick in the last outing and with fellow opener Henry Nicholls (78) will be anticipated to stitch a winning partnership at Eden Park. Tom Blundell was unfortunate to have been dismissed for a petty total but can be backed to put up a terrific display with the bat in the upcoming duel. Ross Taylor, one of the greatest Kiwi players to date, scored an unbeaten 109 off 84 deliveries which kept the hosts in the chase for the majestic target set by Kohli & Co.

Credits to southpaw Tom Latham (69) for laying a captain’s knock and since he will be heading the second ODI as well, New Zealand would fancy their chances of dominating the Indian contingent in the forthcoming feud. In the bowling department, all eyes would be on Tim Southee as he is one of the most experienced bowlers in the shorter formats of the game at present. His cutters and pace variations could do the damage in the cloudy conditions at Eden Park.

Hamish Benett and James Neesham were wicketless in the first one-dayer and will look to scalp one or more wickets. Left-arm spinner Mark Chapman might get the nod in place of Ish Sodhi, who was available only for the previous game. The duo of Santner and Chapman can get the required dismissals with their spin prowess in the middle-overs.

India

The top-order trio of Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, and Virat Kohli put up a terrific show in the last ODI, especially Agarwal and Shaw for coming up with decent exhibitions in their ODI debuts. Kohli notched 51 off 63 deliveries, and along with Kl Rahul (88*) will look to extend his stay in the middle and go for a century. Shreyas Iyer, the man suited at the No 4 spot for team India, smashed his maiden ton in the first one-dayer. He will be banked heavily along with all-rounder Kedar Jadhav for explosive innings at the later stages of the game.

Bowling wise, Indians were as expensive as the Kiwis in spite of having an edge over them in terms of experience and prowess. Jasprit Bumrah (0/53) had a decent day at work while Mohammad Shami (1/64) could have come up with better numbers in the first ODI. Shardul Thakur was attacked in the middle and slog overs and although he took a wicket to his name, there might be a possibility of him being dropped in the second one-dayer.

Left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (2/84) would have to come up with economical display in the coming game else the tourists might lose out on another chance of dominating the Kiwi. His googlies couldn’t do much in the last outing, hopefully, they do the trick in the must-win duel.

It will be a cloudy day at Eden Park with the temperature gliding between 18-23 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, no chances of rain are being predicted ensuring 50-overs of uninterrupted play in each innings. Batsmen would have to put in some extra effort as there will be too much of swing and seam in such conditions.

Venue Details

The average 1st innings total at Eden Park is 218, which drops to 193 in the second innings. Although a not so high scoring venue, one could expect scores as high as 270 as the stadium has shorter boundary limits.

Toss Prediction

The toss winning team should look to bowl first on this occasion. Teams batting second have won of 42 out of 76 occasions, and thus a similar feat could be expected in the coming game. The wicket at Eden Park has usually been a bowlers paradise and with the overcast conditions throughout, one could expect some amount of dominance from their end in the coming game.

Winning Prediction

It will be a must-win game for India in order to grab hold of a chance of leveling the series.

Both India and New Zealand are well equipped with some of the experienced ODI campaigners in their armory, it still looks like India will bounce back in the game at Eden Park and keep the series alive for the decider.

We are expecting India to win!
