Cricket news - Pressure on New Zealand to stop high-flying India

Full to the brim with confidence after their historic Test series win and their first bilateral ODI series victory in Australia, India, head, new Zealand, to right some of the previous errors. It has been almost 10 years since India last recorded a series win in new Zealand, with the 0-4 loss in the previous series in the year 2014, probably on the back of the mind of Virat Kohli, despite a good series with the bat and then not have the results to speak.

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu were also part of the set-up and also you will be glad to make amends this time. Bagging the man of the award against Australia to finish as a shot in the arm for Dhoni, despite his measured approach to the situation, a few games for India, while the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav have also essayed a pivotal role in the middle order. Dhawan and Rayudu, on the other hand, has not much to contribute, in Australia and you would like to be among the runs. Overall, India have a solid batting order, and should imagine, to hunt, even large sums of money, which was not the case when they last toured new Zealand.

Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami, the lack of Jasprit Bumrah have made, while the wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal lived up to your reputation. Without the services of Hardik Pandya, India applied Ravindra Jadeja and Vijay Shankar, as their all-round options. Both were decent with the ball, while they tested really with the bat. This is India's second-last ODI series before the world Cup, and they are eager to discover the options that are available in the full.

To do that in this series on the back of a 3-0 clean sweep of Sri Lanka at home, will be the depth of the banks of your eyelash, to the work of new Zealand. Centuries for Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls and Martin Guptill in their previous series is a good Omen for the home team, especially the former rich vein of form in ODIs. Kane Williamson and Colin Munro have also posted practical contributions in the three 300-plus totals, new Zealand, although they are achieved in the conversion of their promising starts into substantial.

Ish Sodhi and Lockie Ferguson were the top wicket-Taker and the only new Zealand bowlers, who finished with an economy that is less than six (Min. 10 overs) in the series against Sri Lanka. Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Matt Henry had expensive trips without tasting much success, you are eager to get to. The inclusion of Mitchell Santner strengthen the spin attack, while Colin de Grand Homme and Doug Bracewell all-round offer options in the absence of James Neesham - New Zealand's X-factor against Sri Lanka - who finds out due to a hamstring injury.

2-3 loss to England the last time new Zealand played a top team at home, didn't provide a lot to do with the batting, will serve as a reminder for Williamson and co. have what it takes against a top team and you will be ready for the battle between the second and third ranked ODI teams.

If: Wednesday, 23. January at 3:00 p.m. local time (7:30)

Where: McLean Park, Napier

What awaits you: International cricket, McLean Park, after two summers, as the place had lost its status due to poor drainage facilities. Things have changed, thanks to much invested to upgrade the court of jurisdiction - in particular, in the case of the turf, drainage and irrigation systems. As far as the type of the division is concerned, large sums of money can be expected, when you consider that 200 has been exceeded three times in four innings in the two T20s at this place in this month.

Team news:

India: No. 4 remains still an unsettled position for India with Rayudu, the most of the opportunities in the Australia ODIs. Dhoni, four, and Kedar Jadhav to five works well in India in the series decider but Kohli stated after the series that he prefers the combination that India went with the Adelaide-game - four-five-six-seven Rayudu, Dhoni, Karthik and Jadeja. India seam thoughts about their bowling combination - whether to go with three front-line pacers and a wrist spinners, two pacers and two wrist Spinner or two pacers, a bowling all-rounder Vijay Shankar together with a wrist-spinner. Another happy headache for India is that both Vijay and Gill are used to the conditions in new Zealand, and the visitors might be tempted to give up, to go to both.

team: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, K Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar, Shubman Gill

new Zealand: Tom Latham to back hand the wicket-keeping duties, while it is probably a toss-up between de Grand Homme, and Bracewell for the all-rounder position. You could also go with two allrounders and two pacemen, and play the spin-duo of Santner and Sodhi.

team: Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grand Homme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor
