India Playing XI For IND Vs NZ Second ODI
Question in detail
IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI, match prediction: New Zealand goes 1-0 up clinching a comfortable 6-wicket win over India. It was a record win too! Chasing 281, the highest by NZ against India and also the highest chased down by any team at Wankhede, is a matter of joy. Although for black caps it was pretty tough to keep for 50 overs on a humid day out there, Tom Latham and Ross Tailor saw it through making 281 look easy. Tailor's dismissal just 2 runs short of the finish-line was desperate as he missed out a well-deserving hundred.
The visitors will be now hoping their men both bowlers and batsmen to continue the stellar. In-form Latham, Tailor and Boult, also the heroes of the Wankhede victory will again be the players to watch out for. Also, it would be no wonder if they steer their side to yet another victory in IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI. The challenge is tough as it was in the first ODI, but NZ can do it again.
Losing the opener of the three-match series means to be on the back foot that India is at present. Indian skipper Virat Kohli notched a stunning hundred (121) in his 200th ODI, but no one from the other end joined the campaign. While it was his sole effort, Latham-Tailor did it jointly giving a match winning 212-run stand for the fourth wicket. The rare top-order failure kept India from getting a good start. Nor did the experiment with middle-order really work as Kedar Jadhav, who was promoted to No. 4, went down market at an individual score of 12 runs. Denesh Kartik did get the start in his come-back match, but couldn't quite capitalize it. India is left with no more room for error. New Zealand needs to manage just one win in the remainder. However, for India it remains to be a knockout series now. Nonetheless India has the potential to become the winner of IND Vs NZ 2nd ODI.
India's playing XI for second ODI against NZ
A couple of changes could be now a part India's strategy for the second ODI. Who do you think should be in and at whose cost? Axar Patel is probably one to replace either Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal in the spin department. The pace duo of Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar seem to retain their spot in India's playing XI for second ODI against NZ. The ever-consistent Manish Pandey deserves a spot in the top four batsmen. One out of Dinesh Kartik and Kedar Jadhav can miss out to feature the middle-order, and not surprisingly the playing XI too. Dhawan and Rohit will again be the first choice for the opening slots. India's likely playing XI is as Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kedar Jadhav/Manish Pandey, Dinesh Kartik, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni, Kuldeep Yadav/Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah.
