India vs New Zealand 2022 1st ODI

India vs New Zealand 2022 1st ODI by 11ic

With India and New Zealand tying the final T20I using the DLS method, the T20I series came to an abrupt and unexpected conclusion. Nevertheless, that has been dealt with. Even though both teams have put a lot of effort into the T20 World Cup, and given how far away the next one is, it seems a bit odd that the T20I rubber has been overlooked.

A mostly backup team was chosen by India. Despite this, this team is still very strong and would like to leave its mark. Shikhar Dhawan, the captain, who has scored runs but not as quickly as he would have liked, would be the most optimistic for a strong performance. Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer, who are both vying for a spot in India's 15-man squad for the upcoming ODI World Cup, have a good foundation to build on with these three ODIs. It will be interesting to watch Shubman Gill's ability to build on his outstanding ODI debut. In his most recent ODI innings, Rishabh Pant scored a hundred runs, so he will want to maintain his position. After his incredible performances in the shortest format, Suryakumar Yadav would also like to claim an ODI spot as his own. India has a wide range of bowling options. Although it is unknown how many spinners are present, they may have up to three. The also includes four fast bowlers. Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik may tie for one (or possibly two) spots because Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur appear certainties due to their batting prowess.

The population of New Zealand is largely settled, in contrast. After missing the final T20I, Kane Williamson is now leading them again. Devon Conway, who has had some difficulty behind the stumps, would be relieved to hear that Tom Latham will resume his wicket-taking duties. However, Conway will work closely with Finn Allen at the top of the order as the latter is responsible for establishing the pace right away. The middle order has a recognized appearance. More time will be given to Daryl Mitchell to increase his innings. The task of providing a strong finish would fall to Glenn Phillips and James Neesham. The Kiwis will once more be without Trent Boult's bowling services. However, Matt Henry, a member of the, will aid in lightening that burden. In addition, Lockie Ferguson's raw pace and Tim Southee's experience, particularly on a field with lopsided dimensions, could be crucial. As a result, this series appears to be perfectly balanced, much like the T20I series. Although you could argue that the Black Caps' home advantage slightly tips the scales in their favor, both teams have players who can win games.

India vs New Zealand

New Zealand won by 7 wickets

As they won their 13th straight game, New Zealand kept their home winning streak intact. They haven't lost in their own backyard since the year 2019. India put up a difficult total, but Latham stepped in and played one of the magical innings at Eden Park to help New Zealand win the first game of the series. Umran Malik's bowling prowess was on display for the Indian crowd as he bowled brilliantly to take two wickets in his debut game, but his exploits were short-lived. The inexperience of India's bowling attack became clear in the latter stages as they kept making the same error of bowling short to Tom Latham and suffered the consequences.
