New Zealand Cricket Team suffered a humiliating defeat against India in the 2nd ODI. The visitors got folded for 108 runs where the batters played quite defensively. Mohammed Shami was the wrecker in chief where the right-arm speedster took 3 scalps and gave away 18 runs in his 6 overs spell.
New Zealand batters looked clueless against the pacers who were bowling wicket to wicket. They should have used their feet rather than getting into the shell. The management should reconsider the batting position of Daryl Mitchell as he hasn’t made any impact at the no.4 position.
Danish Kaneria on Pakistan
Danish Kaneria was seen speaking on his YouTube channel and was quite furious about Pakistan. “Pakistan will have to think about the T20 captaincy as well as to whom to give it if they take it away from Babar Azam. Did we make any big score of note in the ODIs? Did anyone score double hundred? Was there any dominant performance? No. We need to realize all this and learn from other countries like India who are exploiting their conditions. But here we are afraid of getting exposed in our own conditions.” said Danish Kaneria.
Exciting Contest on Cards
A win for India in the 3rd ODI will give them the top spot in the ICC ODI Rankings. Currently, India is placed in 3rd position in the ICC ODI Rankings. India would be hoping that the left-handed batter Ishan Kishan plays a terrific knock as the batter couldn’t make an impact in the 1st ODI.
New Zealand perhaps will have to apply an ultra-aggressive approach in order to tackle the swinging conditions. It would be interesting to see whether the Black Caps go unchanged or bring back Ish Sodhi into the playing 11 who had a niggle.
