India vs New Zealand Playing-11: The Indian team has to play a three-match ODI series against New Zealand at its home. The first match will be played tomorrow (25 November) in Auckland from 7 am Indian time. Earlier, under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, the Indian team defeated the Kiwi team 1-0 in the three-match T20 series.
Now the Indian team has to play ODI series under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan. After the success of Pandya, now Dhawan would also like to capture the ODI series. For this, Dhawan would like to field his strong playing-11.
Sanju-Umran may get a chance under Dhawan’s captaincy
Pandya did not give a chance to wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson and fast bowler Umran Malik in the T20 series. But the fans hope that in the first ODI, Dhawan can give a chance to both of them in his playing-11. However, its chances seem extremely low. The reason for this is that the team management and coach VVS Laxman are the same, so they were in the T20 series. Sanju-Umran is probably not in his plan in terms of condition.
Indian team’s poor record in New Zealand
Team India has played a total of 9 ODI series on New Zealand soil so far, out of which it has won only two. While in 5 had to face defeat. If we talk about the matches, then the Indian team has played a total of 42 matches against New Zealand at its home so far, out of which it has won only 14. While in 25 he got defeated.
