Cricket news - India Women out to seal ODI series in New Zealand
India seems to be doing everything right in their efforts, the third-best side in the world behind England and Australia. And the one-sidedness of the first ODI, where new Zealand lost amazing by nine wickets, was a growing proof of how everything falls into place. The second ODI in Mount Maunganui, you have a shot at sealing the three-match series in new Zealand, is a rare art piece in its own right, and comes at just the right time.
India's top order saw in the punishment form the other day. Smriti Mandhana cracked 104 and Jemimah Rodrigues of 81 in a 190-run opening stand, knocked the wind out of new Zealand. India hope to have a similar but not bothering to start a mid-workout, when you consider how high Mithali Raj said Dayalan Hemalatha and Deepti Sharma before the start of the series. In India, players in addition to Mandhana and Harmanpreet need to get up, and there is no better opportunity than in a series-clinching victory away from home.
The game might be decided, such as new Zealand, India play spinners. She looked short against Ekta Bisht and Poonam Yadav, the duo-select a combination of six wickets. The 61-run opening stand between Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine was the only time, in India chasing the game, and new Zealand have clear plans for strike rotation against spin.
When: Tuesday, 29. January, 6:30pm IST / 01:00 GMT / 02:00 LOCAL
Where: Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui
What to expect: Although it is known as a high-scoring venue, the pitch, the you the Bay Oval this season was slower than usual. The new Zealand men's national team were overwhelmed, indoor 250 runs twice in two games, and India's spinners should sniff a similar opportunity against the White Ferns. The weather is fair for cricket.
If new Zealand are trying to replicate India's plan of strangulation of the batsman with spin, you can bring in Anna Peterson, who can contribute with the bat as well. Lauren Down not yet made the most of the limited opportunities she has gotten so far, and that could pave a way for Katie Perkins, in good nick in the domestic ODI competition recently.
Likely XI: Sophie Devine, Suzie Bates, Lauren Down, Amy Satterthwaite(c), Amelia Kerr, Maddy Green, Bernadine Bezuidenhout(w), Leigh Kasperek, Hannah Rowe/Anna Peterson, Holly Huddleston, Lea Tahuhu
To go aside from injuries, India are likely to be with the same XI.
Likely XI: Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Mithali Raj(c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Taniya Bhatia(w), Dayalan Hemalatha, Shikha Pandey, Jhulan Goswami, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav
