India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Live Streaming, Score & TV Channels: The New Zealand tour of India is set to begin with the first One Day match on 22 October 2017 in Mumbai.
India off late has been in red-hot form, demolishing teams at their wish. The batsmen are in excellent touch and the bowlers are putting the balls in the right places. The batsmen would like to continue their touch and some would like to prove their point. Star Sports network is the official broadcaster of the Ind vs NZ cricket series.
Virat Kohli is having an on offseason where either he is getting out real early or making it big. He needs to work a bit on his consistency and what better to test that than at home against the Kiwis. Dhawan, Rohit should also get their act together.
The main problem though has been the middle order and India needs to make a solid middle order before the 2019 WC. Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav have all been tested and they have failed repeatedly. A youngster should get a chance to show his talent.
Also, Ajinkya Rahane should be used more often than he is used. Dhoni is coming off good in batting off late but his availability for the 2019 WC is not sure and also his finishing skills are on the wane. India should be on a lookout for a man that can replace the great.
Hardik Pandya would like to cement his place as one of the finest all-rounders in the world right now. He has been scoring runs well and also has got an uncanny knack of picking wickets. The bowling though will be depleted by the absence of Ashwin and Jadeja who have been given rest. But the pace attack looks potent enough with Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar in the ranks. Also the induction of Shradul Thakur is a surprise. Hopefully the pacer from Mumbai is able to prove his believers correct.
New Zealand, on the other hand, have nothing to lose when they play India. They have a young squad and Indian journey would be an experience for them. The batting would be dependent on Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson with the bowling dependent on Tim Southee and Boult. Ish Sodhi would also come in handy given the fact that the pitches would be a bit dry. Here is guide to watch India vs New Zealand 1st ODI Live Streaming online.
