IND vs NZ live stream: match preview
India and New Zealand are back at it today with the second ODI. The action comes from Raipur with India one game up in the three-match series. This time, the Black Caps have got things going by batting first. India won the toss for the second time in a row but, this time have elected to field for the first innings.
Fresh from a convincing series win, Rohit Sharma's India will be hoping for more of the same. The series kicked off in Hyderabad, with the hosts looking to extend an impressive home turf record which has seen them claim 22 wins in their last 25 bilateral series in India.
An already daunting task for stand-in skipper Tom Latham and his tourists has become even more difficult with spinner Ish Sodhi having been ruled out of the 1st and 2nd ODIs with a niggle. Worse still, it's been a terrible start for NZ with the bat today, racking up just 28 for the 5 first wickets in the order after only 14 overs.
With captain Kane Williamson and Tim Southee both rested and seamer Trent Boult opting out, it's a light looking Kiwis lineup and small wonder that they're struggling against a side in top form.
Virat Kohli in particular looks in formidable shape for the hosts coming into this series, and will certainly have the bit between his teeth as he goes in search of beating Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 centuries in the format. He managed a paltry 8 in the first ODI, and might just be hoping that the Black Caps can pick up enough of a score for him to attack.
It was Shubman Gill that did the damage for India in the first ODI, though, with a monstrous 208 runs. It looks unlikely that any such heroics will be required by India today.
