Tip Summary

  • It is a must-win match for India as they are lagging behind by 0-1 in the three-match series.
  • New Zealand recorded a stunning seven-wicket win in the first One Day International while the second match was washed out due to rain.
  • India have won 55 off 105 total One Day matches played between India and New Zealand. 

New Zealand will be playing without any pressure on Wednesday in the third One Day International against India at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. The hosts are leading the three-match series by 1-0 and thus, in no position, can lose the ODI series. India, on the other hand, need to score a victory to end the series in a draw.

The first One Day International between the two sides saw Indian bowlers delivering a disappointing performance. Visiting batters did well by putting up a total of 306 runs in their allotted 50 overs. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Shubman Gill played outstanding knocks. However, the bowlers failed to replicate the same performance.

Defending the score in the second innings, the Men in Blue started well. Shardul Thakur picked the first wicket for India while it was Umran Malik who picked the second wicket in the form of Devon Conway. With both the openers back in the pavilion within 16 overs, India had a perfect chance to seal the game. However, Kane Williamson and Tom Latham had other plans as they lit up Eden Park with their batting exploits. The two players stitched a crucial unbeaten partnership of 212 runs to ensure a victory for the hosts in 47.1 overs. 

India’s plans of making a comeback in the second ODI were destroyed by rain. The team was playing at 89 for one in 12.5 when rain interrupted the match. However, they have a chance on Wednesday to redeem themselves.

The good thing for New Zealand in India’s white-ball tour so far has been the return of form for skipper Kane Williamson. The captain drew a lot of flak during the T20 World Cup 2022 for his underwhelming performance. He was labeled as one of the prime reasons behind the team’s exit from the tournament before the final. However, Kane has redeemed himself against India. The batter did well in the T20I series as he scored 61 runs in the only game he played. He is continuing his good form in the ODIs as well. He is the second-highest run-scorer with a knock of 95 runs in the first ODI. Along with centurion Tom Latham, the captain also played an instrumental role in Kiwi’s lead of 1-0. The Blackcaps will be again relying on Williamson to lead the team with the bat on Wednesday.

Shreyas Iyer has been the driving force for India in One Day Internationals for the past few years. The batter dominated the first ODI as well with the bat. He was the top scorer for India with a knock of 80 runs at an impressive strike rate of 105.26. The Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain will have to again come up with a match-defining performance on Wednesday for India to end the series in a draw. He is also one of the experienced players in the team with 1379 ODI runs to his name in 35 games at an average of 49.2.

Tim Southee exploited the favorable bowling conditions in the first One Day International by picking three wickets, including Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Shardul Thakur. The experienced seamer will again hope to make a mark as the Hagley Oval is a bowling-friendly surface. The pitch will offer the swing while the overcast conditions will also help the pacers.
