Match Preview   1st ODI

Team India is fresh off a 3-0 defeat of Sri Lanka in which the batsmen had a blast humiliating the bowlers. As he scored two hundred in the series, maintained his form and was named “Player of the Match.” Shubman Gill scored 70 runs in the first game before scoring a record-breaking amount in the third ODI. Despite having a solid start, could not turn it into a big score. 

and Shreyas Iyer, backed by Suryakumar Yadav, and the Indian batting order appear strong enough to handle the Kiwi challenge. 

On the other hand, New Zealand is coming off a 2-1 victory in Pakistan and would bet on themselves against India given their recent performance and knowledge of subcontinental circumstances. Kane Williamson, the team’s captain, and Tim Southee, the vice-captain, will not be present since they decided to take it easy after the Pakistan tour. In the three-match ODI series against Pakistan, Devon Conway made 153 runs in three innings, including a century and a fifty, to finish second only behind Kane Williamson in total runs scored. In the final ODI, Glenn Phillips came through and finished the series with 103 runs and a fifty. 

 The Kiwis’ second-highest wicket-taker, spinner Michael Bracewell, had four wickets in three games, trailing only leading wicket-taker Tim Southee. Ish Sodhi and Lockie Ferguson both took three wickets, and Sodhi is anticipated to be a formidable opponent for the Indian batters with his spin in addition to Mitchell Santner.
