Last 5 results for India in New Zealand – L.W.L.W.W.

The odds might be in India’s favor for the next couple of ODI’s. Shreyas Iyer should have been part of their plans sooner, but since being given a consistent run, he has sealed the No. 4 spot. KL Rahul has gone from an extremely talented benchwarmer to a first-choice pick who can bat at any position. Even Shardul Thakur, who has blown lukewarm and ice-cold all tour, seems to have the higher-ups’ favour probably because this team doesn’t just want to be the best now, it wants to stay there for years to come, and for that to happen, an influx of new talent is crucial.

New Players

Tom Blundell took over the No. 3 spot in the first ODI and, for the duration of a glorious cover drive, he looked very Williamson-lite. Problem is when he tried to go for it again, he misjudged the flight of a Kuldeep Yadav delivery and was out stumped.

Prithvi Shaw‘s first ODI was significantly less fun than his first Test but it shouldn’t take too long for a man who has built his game on stand-and-deliver shots – drives on the up, cuts with pure abandon, back-foot punches that merit holding of the pose – to succeed in limited-overs cricket.
