India v New Zealand, ODI series 2017 - Statistical Preview

India v New Zealand, ODI series 2017 - Statistical Preview

Of late, we have been putting some good performances on the board and we know coming here, it is a very tough challenge and we have to be aware of this. The home team will be high on the confidence with their recent form and a balanced lineup that can take them to victory from any situation. Other than Virat, only 12 Indian cricketers have played 200 match in global cricket in limited over series. When the Indian skipper will play at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for the first ODI match against New Zealand on 22 October, the match will be his 200th match in limited over series.

If New Zealand win the series 1-2, India will lose two rating points and will still stay at number 2 with 118 points. Between 2003 and 2016, New Zealand lost eight ODIs in a row they played against India in India. Bumrah has proved himself to be an indispensable cog in the Indian pace attack over the last few years, his yorkers castling even the best. "I hope we put up the same performance as we did in the last series against Australia", the right-hander added. However, Wankhede is not the friendliest wicket to spin, and the bowlers will have to toil hard to earn breakthroughs against a seemingly resilient New Zealand batting.

"Yes, we played a couple of games in the World Cup, against other opposition, but the guys have played IPL games here, it is a nice stadium and so it is nice to get the series underway here at the Wankhede", said the 27-year-old batsman.

A lot of stuff went on and I just didn't enjoy it, ' she explained, during an exclusive interview with The Sun . Speaking on ITV's Lorraine , Cheryl said: "I always loved the name".

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, George Worker and Ish Sodhi.

The opening batters for tomorrow are Guptill and Munro, two good ball strikers, exciting top order players and it will be nice to see them get under way tomorrow. They lost both the ODI they played in Singapore. Kohli has the luxury of playing him in the middle order, but one does not see Manish Pandey being dropped. "He had some good time in the middle in the last couple of warm-up games and will obviously keep [wickets]", said Williamson.

Rohit Sharma has been in great form against the New Zealand team, averaging 76,75.6 and 59.2 in the last three series. They certainly deserve their position. "It's good for me personally to start off the series from Mumbai". We played against Australia and they had different team dynamics. After a bit of break from worldwide cricket, it was nice to get back together and start acclimatising as best as we can with the climate here in terms of humidity.
