In the second ODI of the India tour of New Zealand 2022, both teams will take on each other at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday, November 27 at 7 AM IST. The hosts lead the three-match bilateral series 1-0 with a victory in the first ODI.
The tourists had a rough day with the ball on Friday, due to which the team’s decent batting efforts went into vain. The top-three batters crossed the 50-run mark each, and a small collapse in the middle was handled well by a Sanju Samson–Shreyas Iyer partnership, with Washington Sundar‘s onslaught finishing the innings well. Just like batting, the Men in Blue started on a higher note with the ball, pocketing three wickets in the first 20 overs itself. But the bowling unit didn’t have any answers to the double-century partnership between Kane Williamson and Tom Latham. A comprehensive defeat in the first ODI will make the Indian think tank come up with new tactics to keep the bilateral series alive.
On the other hand, after the T20I bilateral series defeat, the home team bounced back in the first ODI with an emphatic victory. The Kiwi bowlers managed to sustain the flow of runs in the middle overs after leaking runs in the first 20 overs. The effortless batting performance by the Blackcaps will help the team to walk into this fixture with their heads up high. The New Zealand camp will look to replicate their first ODI performance and clinch the series on Sunday.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams in ODIs, the Men in Blue are superior. The two sides squared off on 111 occasions, India won 55 games while New Zealand emerged victorious on 50 instances.
