IND vs NZ 2nd ODI: Second ODI match against New Zealand today, this could be Team India’s playing-11

Today (January 21), the second match of the three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is to be played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur. The Indian team won a thrilling 12-run victory in the first ODI. In such a situation, now the Indian team has a golden opportunity to capture the series by winning the second ODI. According to Indian time, this match will be played from 1.30 pm.

Raipur city is hosting an international cricket match for the first time. In such a situation, more than 60 thousand spectators are expected to come to the stadium to encourage the host team. In this match, Team India’s playing-11 will also be eyed. It has to be seen whether there is any change in the bowling combination because Indian bowlers proved to be very expensive in the first ODI.

Explosive batting expected from Rohit-Ishaan

In the first ODI, Shubman Gill performed brilliantly with the bat and scored a double century and single-handedly took India to a strong score. Wicket-keeper batsman Ishaan Kishan, who scored a double century against Bangladesh, failed in the first ODI. Now he would like to take full advantage of this opportunity. Captain Rohit Sharma is looking in good touch and has got a good start but failed to play the innings. He would also like to play a big innings. Hardik Pandya, who has failed to perform effectively for some time, will be expected to score quick runs in the last overs of the innings.

Umran Malik may get a chance

The major concern of the Indian team actually lies in the bowling department. During the first ODI on Wednesday, Michael Bracewell single-handedly brought New Zealand closer to victory. India gave Shardul Thakur a chance in place of Umran Malik in the first ODI as he is a better option in batting. Now the team management will have to decide before the second ODI whether it needs a bowling all-rounder or a bowler who can destroy the opposing team with his extra pace.

Siraj has done good bowling

Mohammad Siraj has impressed with his bowling. At the same time, Mohammed Shami has also bowled brilliantly with the new ball, but Bracewell easily scored runs against him. Hardik Pandya proved to be very expensive. Washington Sundar had a forgettable first ODI in the spin department, while Kuldeep Yadav bowled impressively. The Indian team also has the option of playing Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal together, but right now a wrist spinner and a finger spinner are being preferred in the playing-11.

The pitch here is friendly to the batsmen

Raipur K’s pitch is known to be batting friendly and it is expected that the batsmen will once again get the advantage of the pitch today. Although the fast bowlers could potentially get some help during the second half of the game, the spinners could come in handy in the middle overs. The team winning the toss would like to bat first.

India’s possible playing-11: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishaan Kishan (Wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Mohammad Shami, Umran Malik.

Possible playing-11 of New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (wk/c), Glenn Phillips, Michael Bracewell, Mitchell Santner, Henry Shipley, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner.
