  • India needs to hit back to avoid a series defeat after New Zealand won a high-scoring opening game in Hamilton.
  • After India won all five matches in the T20i series - as New Zealand blew a number of winning positions - the hosts hit back thanks to Ross Taylor-s unbeaten century last time out.
  • India scored 347/4 from their 50 overs, led by Shreyas Iyer-s 103 from 107 balls. In reply, Taylor hit 109* from 84 balls and New Zealand claimed a four-wicket win with 11 balls to spare.

 #INDvsNZ Toss Prediction 

New Zealand elected to field first last time out and India could opt to do the same in this match.

 #INDvsNZ Weather Report 

Auckland will be on the cooler side but crucially it should be clear and dry for most of the day, albeit with a few clouds about.

 #INDvNZ Pitch Condition 

Eden Park is generally an excellent batting wicket, with a good pace to the pitch and short boundaries offering further assistance.

 Team NEWS: 

 IND Team News 

With Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma out injured, Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal made their NZ vs IND ODI debuts for India last time out as they opened the batting together. It meant KL Rahul in the middle order, where his superb batting form continued, and the same top five could be retained. Yuzvnednra Chahal, Manish Pandey, and Navdeep Saini are among the options if India wants to change things up.

 NZ Team News 
Kane Williamson missed the first game of this series and is expected to miss the second too. The Black Caps could stick with the same batting line-up after their highest successful chase, but Scott Kuggeleijn and Kyle Jamieson are bowling options to consider as they look to be tighter than before. It would be an ODI debut for Jamieson if he plays.

 IND vs NZ Fantasy Team Guide: 

 Team Guide: 


 -Lokesh Rahul 
usually, open the innings for IND but in this match, he will bat at no. 5. He is a top-class batsman who had been very impressive in his 30 matches ODI career at an average of 43+ with strike rate near to 90. Performed really well in the last T20 series by scoring 50+ runs a couple of times. Good C VC choice in SL.Scored 88* from just 64 balls in the last match.

 -Tom Latham 
will bat at three down. He had been impressive in this format. Played 96 ODI matches and scored at an average of 32+ with help of 4 centuries too. Punt C VC choice. Scored match-winning 69 runs in the last match. 


 -Virat Kohli 
will bat at one down. He is an evergreen player who is currently no. 1 batsman in the world having Average of 59.81 from 246 ODI matches with SR nearing 100. Must have a pick in SL and default C VC too. Played very well in the last couple of ODI & T20 series. Scored 51 in the last match.

 -Shreyas Iyer 
will bat at two down. He is another young talent who is in form of his life as he is playing very consistent cricket as seen in the last couple of series and in domestic cricket too. He is having Average near to 44+ from just 16 ODI matches with a good strike rate too. Must have a pick in SL if IND opts to bat first. Played match-winning knocks in last series & scored century too in the last match.

 -Prithvi Shaw 
is going to play his 2nd ODI with this match. He will open the innings with Mayank Agarwal. Though he is only 20 years old but his skills are off another level as he had performed really well in FC & List A career. Performed well in international test & T20 series too. Good Punt in SL and best C VC pick in GL.

 -Mayank Agarwal 
He will open the innings in this match. He is another top-class batsman who had performed really well in test cricket last year. He too is going to play his 2nd ODI  match. Played really well in List A cricket with an average of 50.1 in 82 matches at a strike rate of more than 100. Good pick in SL especially if IND opts to bat first.

 -Martin Guptill 
is an experienced batsman who will open the innings for NZ. He had played 180 ODI matches at an average of 41+ with strike rate nearing 100. He is an attacking batsman who will either play a good knock or gets out early. Though he had failed to perform well in ODI cricket last year but his decent form of this year makes him a good pick in SL.

 -Henry Nicholls 
will open the innings. Best choice of C VC today in GL as he can be very good especially if NZ opts to bat 2nd considering his average of 34 in just 46 ODI matches with good SR too. Can be picked in SL if credit problem arises as he is available in only 8.5 credits. Played decent knocks in the last 5 ODI matches too.

 -Ross Taylor 
will bat at two down. He had been more consistent in this format. He is having an average of 48+from 229 ODI matches with a decent strike rate too. He is a reliable batsman who usually scores 30-40 runs easily. Must have a pick in SL especially if NZ opts to bat first. He is having a good ODI record against India too. Scored match-winning knock of 109* from just 84 balls in the last match.

 -Mark Chapman 
is expected to bat at one down and bow a couple of overs if plays. He is a decent batsman and bowler too. Though he doesn't have much experience of playing ODI cricket but his record in FC & List A cricket makes him good punt in SL and C VC pick in GL.

 All Rounder-

 -Colin de Grandhomme 
will do the late hitting and bowl a couple of overs too. He is an impressive all-rounder who had been very consistent from the last couple of years. He had batted at an average of 27+ and taken 25 wickets too from 39 ODI International matches. Another good pick in SL and C VC choice. Though failed to perform well in the last series but expected to see good cricket in this match.

 -Mitchell Santner 
is more off a good bowler than a batsman as he had taken 69 wickets from 70 ODI matches at an economy rate of 4.89 only. He had batted at an average of 27.2 which shows that he can play some reliable knocks too. Must have a pick in SL if NZ opts to bowl first as he had bowled well against INDIA during there last ODI series and in last T20 series too.

 -Ravindra Jadeja 
is another must-have pick especially if IND opts to bat first as he will do the late hitting and bowl full 10 overs too. He is in good form right now as seen in the last couple of series. He had played 163 games and taken 185 wickets from them, batted at an average of 31+ too. Punt C VC choice as he is taking wickets consistently.

 -James Neesham 
will bat in middle order and bowl at least 5-6 overs too. He is an impressive batsman who is having an average of 31+ in 60 matches and taken 59 wickets too at an economy rate of 6.14 only. Must have a pick in SL especially if NZ opts to bat first as Than he will surely contribute with both of his skills.

 -Kedar Jadhav 
will bat in the middle order and a must-have pick in SL especially if IND opts to bat first as he had batted at an average of 42+ with SR more than 100 and taken 27 wickets too from 72 matches. His economy rate with the bowl is pretty awesome. Performed decent in his Last ODI series against WI but expected to play better in this series.


 -Shardul Thakur 
is a good bowler who had bowled well from the time of his debut last year. Though he had played only 9 matches but taken 9 wickets from them at an economy rate of less than 6. He had performed well in List A & FC career too. Good credit saver punt in SL. He had taken wickets consistently in the last T20 series too.

 -Jasprit Bumrah 
is a must-have pick in SL and punt C VC choice too. He is currently one of the top bowlers in international cricket. He had taken 104 wickets from just 62 matches at an economy rate of 4.49 only. His yorkers are very tough to play.

 -Mohammad Shami 
is another good pick who had been the highest wicket-taker bowler of the year 2019 in ODI cricket. He is having 144 wickets at his name from just 77 ODI games at an economy rate of 5.57 only. He is having a decent record against NZ in ODI cricket.

 -Yuzvendra Chahal

C VC Choices -
+Virat Kohli
+KL Rahul
+Mayank Agarwal
+Ross Taylor
+James Neesham
+Jasprit Bumrah

 Key Players: 

 IND Key Players: 

 Virat Kohli: 
It says it all that his 58th ODI half-century last time out actually diminished his batting average in the format. He also has 43 ODI centuries to his name and has scored 11,843 runs at an average of 59.81.

 KL Rahul: 
In supreme batting form of late, which continued when he thumped 88* from 64 balls last time out. He now averages 46.79 in ODI cricket, from 30 matches, with that his seventh half-century. He also has three centuries to his name.

 Jasprit Bumrah:  
Still, the number-one ranked bowler in ODI cricket, the paceman has taken 104 wickets in 62 ODI matches and maintains a brilliant economy rate too.

 NZ Key Players: 

 Henry Nicholls:
Followed up his good List A batting form with Canterbury by scoring 78 in the first match of this series. It means his last four one-day innings have brought scores of 120, 62, 55 and 78.

 Ross Taylor:
Proved his enduring class last time out when he hit ten fours and four sixes on his way to a match-winning, unbeaten century. It was his 21st ODI century, and he also has 50 50s to his name in the format.

 Tom Latham:
Took over the captaincy in Kane Williamson’s absence and had a big impact last time out, scoring 69 from 48 balls in a big partnership with Ross Taylor. It was his 16th ODI half-century and he has passed 100 on four occasions too.

 Team Forms: 


India, unlike New Zealand, have had plenty of ODI matches since the World Cup. They have had to come from behind to win their last two series, however, against West Indies and Australia and they will need to do the same if they are to win this one too.

Shreyas Iyer scored 103 at Seddon Park, while Virat Kohli (51) and KL Rahul (88*) also contributed to a score of 347/4 last time out, but they were unable to defend it despite some late wickets as they fell to a four-wicket loss.

 New Zealand: 

This series is New Zealand’s first set of ODI matches since the World Cup final at Lord’s, where they lost in a super-over to England. They immediately set about rebuilding, with Ross Taylor’s unbeaten century in a total of 348/6 helping them to a four-wicket win – their highest ever successful chase. Henry Nicholls (78) and Tom Latham (69) also played key roles in that chase. 

Lokesh Rahul(w), Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Prithvi Shaw, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Kedar Jadhav, Shardul Thakur.

Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w/c), Mark Chapman, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Hamish Bennett, Ish Sodhi, Tom Blundell, Kyle Jamieson, Scott Kuggeleijn.
