|New Zealand vs India – 1st ODI|
|Date||25th November 2022|
|Time||7: 00 AM IST, 1:30 AM GMT 2:30 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||Eden Park, Auckland|
After winning the T20I series, team India now shift their focus to the ODIs. India last played an ODI series against South Africa at home and won 2-1. Meanwhile, NZ last played against Australia and were hammered 3-0.
With 50-over World Cup lined up next year, every ODI game becomes important as teams will be looking to find the best combination. India have rested big guns like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, who are certain to find a place in the ODI World Cup. It’s an opportunity for the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, who will lead India in the series, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, and Arshdeep Singh among others to get into the ODI team.
New Zealand will also try to experiment with their combination in the three-match series.
The surface should favour the batters. The new ball, however, will swing early on and it will not be easy for the openers out there. However, once the ball loses its shine, it will become easy to bat.
The weather will be cloudy but rain is unlikely to affect the game. The temperature will also be around 19 degrees.
Devon Conway, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Michael Bracewell
Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer/Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal
Shikhar Dhawan will return to the set-up and will lead the Indian team. The likes of Umran Malik and Washington Sundar are likely to get a game. For the Kiwis, Tom Latham is likely to make a comeback.
The head-to-head record between the teams shows that both teams have been competitive against each other.
|Batters||Suryakumar Yadav (C), Glenn Phillips, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson|
|All-rounders||Mitchell Santner, Deepak Hooda|
|Bowlers||Yuzvedra Chahal, Umran Malik, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee|
Suryakumar Yadav has been in staggering form of late. Even though he has played mostly in T20I matches, his confidence will be skyrocketing. Yadav will now be aiming to take his form to the ODI format and become a regular member of the team.
Devon Conway is one of the best New Zealand batters. He has not been in the best form of late but he will feel comfortable in the ODI format. Conway has scored 363 runs in 9 ODIs, including a century and two half-centuries for NZ.
This is a format Williamson will feel most comfortable in. He will not have to worry about his strike rate from ball one and can take his time to settle. Williamson, once set, is very hard to dismiss and will pose a tremendous challenge to the Indian bowlers.
With cloudy overhead conditions, Tim Southee will get the new ball to move. Indian batters have found it hard against swinging deliveries and Southee will be a big challenge for them in the series.
The Indian fans are very excited to see Umran Malik rattle the Kiwis with his raw pace. Umran didn’t play in the T2OIs but he is likely to be tested in the ODIs. He can be the trump card for India.
