India is coming high on confidence after beating Australia in the first warm-up game. On the other hand, New Zealand took a hard beating from the South Africans. In just the first innings, New Zealand was dismissed for close to 100 runs. Here is a quick preview of the game between the men from the subcontinent and the Kiwis:
Preview of the Indian Team:
They are high on confidence. Suryakumar Yadav is their top batter and he comes out to bat at number 5. With that being said, the top 4 need to get into their own. From the last two practice games, it is clear that KL Rahul is in prime form too. Surya is tonking the bowlers for fun. When he is at the crease he keeps the scoreboard ticking, On the other hand, India has also found a gem in the form of Mohammed Shami. Shami seems to be all their answers for poor death bowling. Yuzi Chahal or Ravichandran Ashwin? This is one question to ponder!
Indian Squad for India VS New Zealand:
Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (WK), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Hardik Pandya, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh.
