    New Zealand [273/8] beat India [251] to win 2nd ODI by 22 runs; Win series 2-0 [One match to go]

    Riding high on confidence after successfully chasing down 349 in the first ODI, hosts New Zealand will aim to close out the series with a game to spare when they face off in the second ODI in Auckland.

    Overview

    New Zealand v India, 1st ODI
    Eden Park, Auckland
    Saturday, 8 February, 3.00pm local, 2.00am GMT

    Having won the first game in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand have given themselves a solid chance to win their first bilateral ODI series against India in six years. They last won a series in January 2014, defeating India 4-0 in a five-match series at home.

    But New Zealand still have areas to work on. As they did in each of the last three T20Is, en route to being swept 5-0, the hosts again stuttered in the dying stages of the chase in the first ODI despite being in full control of proceedings. Fortunately for them, Ross Taylor kept his head about him to see them through. Still, the fact that they lost three wickets for 22 runs will remind them that they have work to do in that department.

    India have reason to feel confident in their abilities to level the series and set up a decider. In their previous ODI series, against Australia at home, they bounced back from an opening defeat to take the series 2-1.

    Their main area of concern will be in the bowling department, which has been a bit expensive at times. While the ability to pull the game back in the death stages is admirable, India will be more advantaged if they are able to maintain the intensity more uniformly through the course of the innings.

    Remember the last time

    Having lost their debutant openers Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal after a promising start, India's middle order proved its worth. Captain Virat Kohli set the foundation for the first innings with an excellent fifty, staging a 102-run stand with Shreyas Iyer before falling to Ish Sodhi.

    New Zealand would have hoped to cash in on that opening, but India were more than equal to the task. Iyer anchored the innings with a magnificent 103 Ė his maiden ODI century, while KL Rahul smashed a 64-ball 88 in another sign of growing confidence in his role as the No.5 batsman. The fireworks powered India to a formidable 347/4.

    The hosts enjoyed a solid start to the chase, with openers Henry Nicholls and Martin Guptill putting on 85 runs together. But when Nicholls was dismissed for 78 in the 29th over, leaving the hosts at 171/3, India still seemed to be in the driver's seat. But Ross Taylor, and Tom Latham, standing in as captain for the injured Kane Williamson, forged a stunning 138-run stand for the fourth wicket to put New Zealand in complete command. The hosts lost a few quick wickets in the end, but Taylor kept his calm to take his side over the line, staying unbeaten on 109 off 84 balls.

    Conditions

    Weather in Auckland is expected to be pleasant and clear. An at-times flat pitch and oddly-shaped boundaries can make for a run-feast in Eden Park, but conditions tend to produce swing at times to keep the fast men interested.

    Squads:

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

    New Zealand Squad: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w/c), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Hamish Bennett, Kyle Jamieson, Mark Chapman

    Hope Shaw and Agarwal play long enough to get some practice for Tests even if it means they go a little slow. Kohli should rest himself and let Rahul lead. Pant can come in place of Kohli.

    Shami and Chahal need to work on their fielding.

    Would like to see Jadhav and Thakur getting dropped and Manish Pandey or Rishabh Pant and Navdeep Saini make way for next couple of match. Not sure if this will happen though as our team management like mediocrity.

    They should rest Bumrah as well. Typically we are so unlucky that in the last match as fast bowler would pick up an injury. We already lost Ishant.

    The irony.

    Indian fans are the most easily triggered over observations and banter.

    I point out we're missing our best players and Shami going for runs last game and you're banging about trolling and being insecure.

    For the matter this is a JAMODI series for us and a revenge series for India after the phainty we've given India in the WC and last game.

    India vs NZ never had any sort of rivalry for banter. You are just artificially creating it to satisfy your twisted ego.

    Another ordinary turnout.

    I don't think there has been a good crowd this series.

    Previous tour nearly every match was packed.

    Definitely the prices being too much has contributed to these dire crowds.

    Great opportunity to test Gill was wasted once again. This Jadhav who is already 35 has no scope for 2023 world cup. Still he plays every match. There is no foresight, vision. After 2 year they will be complaining about not being able to find a good no.5 no.6

    Idea of playing him in every match is get back the rhythm. He has not attempted even a single new found outswinger. I think he will do it in Tests.

    Flat wicket, small boundaries, weak bowling attack and two batsmen set.

    Should score 350+ here and India will still feel like they're in the game.

    Double ton there for these two as well. Pitch looks really good.

    Usually there's some movement there for bowlers to make for low scoring games.

    Without it, you see massive scores here.

    India scored 370 odd here when Sachin and Sehwag last toured.

    IIRC Sachin was close to a double that day but didn't get it because of injury.

    We're not winning with anything under 350.

    Too much batting power from India not to chase that here.

    Well nicht surprised anymore. There is atleast two customary drops per match, just like runouts are for our neighbours.

    I can't remember tbh. I just know when Eden Park is flat, anything is chase able with the small boundaries and a good batting line up.

    Rohit could have brought up double century #4 on this pitch lol.

    Must be kicking himself.

    India will be happy with this start. We haven't gotten away and are still assessing what is a good score. Pitch looks great.. need a massive total for this batting line up.

    India failed to test their bench strength both in T20 series and ODI series. Dhawan, Rohit were out due to injury. Otherwise they would have also played.

    This is why i don't take LOI matches in NZ seriously. It is very advantageous to team batting second.

    If ever there was any doubt it is clarified. Kohli is one of the worst ODI captains India ever had. Even when there are players available, the selections and decisions that kohli takes & makes are too unreasonable in the name of "backing". Kedar jadhav, jadeja, shardul, kuldeep-chahal (are there no spinners available in India to test anymore ?) ...Kohli did the same in tests too but the win in Aus masked his "weird" selections.

    He also doesn't have onfield pro-activity. He just doesn't know how to set fields in one dayers

    And that Ego cost India CT17, WC 19 - losing is not an issue but going ahead with methods that are more likely to fail is the issue. Even a normal fan could see the possibilities but Kohli refuses....it is time Ganguly shows some "character" and appoints Rohit as Odi captain.

    Looked like at the same time.

    Either way nothing changed. He might of had a case if the decision is overturned.
