Cricket news - Will the series take a turn for the worse?

A confident Indian side will look to wrap up the five-match ODI series with a win at Bay Oval

Let us say it out loud. This was a boring series so far. New Zealand are a team that came to India last time, and distills the host from the endless euphoria, to remember, to lose what home feels. But they seem to have added to lose to itself this time, two consecutive games at home, the series on the line against a team that you love, back on the ground.

No wonder we expected this series much more that the bland mojito it turned out to be. Remember, the three ODIs in India in the year 2017? New Zealand is always the cheat code for India's spin twins seemed to be. They also played in India, which packs on tracks with more spin IMPLIED you should, even better, put back in, on a smaller plot of land home, right? Not quite.

The problem is that the batsman, who found India's spin twins back in 2017, not to face got enough spin this time around. Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have ensured that the picking early wickets for the Spinner, and hide a whole bunch of new people.

India had failed to impress, let alone win a match here in 2014. Since then, new Zealand have played two series-the decision will be final ODIs in India in back-to-back series. India can not win, it is so easy, can you? This series may not be what it is. There are even more. It has to be. And in the third ODI at the Bay Oval will tell us what the new Zealand team. And you should inspiration, everything you need to do need to look back.

If: new Zealand vs India, 3rd ODI 07:30 PM IST / 02:00 / 03:00 LOCAL

Where: Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui

What to expect: It is the same jurisdiction as in the second ODI, and the game is supposedly going to be played on the same pitch. You expect a little more help for spinners in the lane, but that is the last thing on want to play new Zealand in India. The weather is set to be fair.


New Zealand

Cotton wool is what the routine looked moderately short for new Zealand, but you don't have a lot of options in the squad. So bowling it will be. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner could both play as new Zealand search for the perfect combination in the run-up to the world Cup. Tim Southee in the side.

Likely XI: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w), Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Doug Bracewell/Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult


This Virat Kohli is the last assignment on the tour with the BCCI, to rest the decision, it before the home ODIs against Australia and the team will like to see him with a series-sealing win. Hardik Pandya has flown to new Zealand after his ban provisionally lifted, but he is probably too short of match practice.

Likely XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami
