All you need to know about India versus New Zealand series 

India versus New Zealand ODI series 2019

After a historic ODI series win over Australia in Australian soil, India will face a tougher challenge against the Kane Williamson led side in limited over series starting from 23rd January. It promises to be cracking series between two of the top ODI sides in the world.

With the World Cup 2019 coming up, this series provides an opportunity for both teams to fine-tune their team for the prestigious tournament that will take place in England and Wales. The Indian Cricket Team hasn’t won an ODI series in New Zealand since 2009.

In 2014, India lost the ODI series to New Zealand by 0-4 with 1 game tied. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the Indian Cricket team won their first bilateral ODI series in Australia. New Zealand whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0 in an ODI series at home at the start of the year.

With two top quality sides, the fans can expect a high voltage clash. After the 5 match ODI series, India will take on New Zealand in 3 match T20I series.

Prithvi Shaw Confident of Being Fully Fit Before IPL

Prithvi Shaw, who missed all of the Australia tour with an ankle injury, says he will be fit in time for the upcoming season of the IPL.

“I will be fit before the Indian Premier League and I am trying hard to reach full fitness. I am working on my ankle as well as on my upper body,” Shaw, who has been retained by the Delhi Capitals for what will be his second season, told India TV.

The opening batsman suffered a freak ankle injury while fielding in the deep during India’s practice match ahead of the first Test against Australia. He stayed on with the team hoping to be fit for the second Test, but was eventually ruled out of the entire series.

“We were playing the practice match in Sydney ahead of the first Test,” recalled Shaw. “I was standing at deep mid-wicket and Ash bhai (R Ashwin) was bowling and a catch came towards me. I caught the ball while jumping backwards in the air and my body weight fell on my left foot when I landed. It was a bit uneven there and my ankle got twisted 90 degrees and the entire body-weight fell on that. That’s how it happened.

“I was trying hard to play in the second Test and the physios too were trying to get me fit for the match. However, the more they tried, the swelling increased and it got more painful.

“It was an unfortunate incident and you can’t really do anything about that. It was my wish to play in the challenging conditions in Australia. I love the bounce there. But unfortunately, I suffered a leg injury. But that’s okay, I am very happy that India won the Test series. It can’t get better than this.

“I got full support of the team at that time because I was very disappointed with the injury. I had practised hard for the tour and had many things in my mind that I thought I would do there. So, it was disheartening. But yeah, now I am happy that we won the series.”

The 19-year-old was expected to be one of the openers, but it was Murali Vijay and KL Rahul who opened the batting in the first two games before Mayank Agarwal came in with Hanuma Vihari in Melbourne. In the final Test in Sydney, Agarwal, who scored 195 runs in the four innings he played, opened the innings with Rahul as India went on to win a historic series Down Under.

“It was a huge achievement for us as an Indian cricket team to win a Test series against Australia in Australia. It feels really good to win the Test series after playing so hard,” said Shaw.

India vs New Zealand | How Kiwi Middle-Order Plays Kuldeep, Chahal Will Dictate Series: Hesson

New Delhi: The high of a victorious Australian summer is still not over but Virat Kohli & Co are bracing themselves for sterner tests as the first of the five ODIs against New Zealand gets underway at Napier on Wednesday (January 23). India came from behind to clinch the three-match ODI series against Australia 2-1 but the Trans-Tasman rivals will pose a much greater threat under the leadership of Kane Williamson.

Historically, India have never traveled well to the New Zealand — winning just 10 out of the 34 ODIs — including a 4-0 loss in the 2013-14 series. This time around, the stakes will be much higher with India being the No. 2 ODI side in the world, just one place above the Black Caps.

Former Kiwi coach Mike Hesson believes both sides couldn’t have asked for a better dress rehearsal in the lead up to the World Cup.

“We have two of the top three ODI sides competing in this ODI series. In terms of preparation for World Cup, you couldn’t ask for a better dress rehearsal,” Hesson told CricketNext.

Hesson, who quit as New Zealand head coach last year, left behind a very imposing legacy as coach. His tenure included New Zealand’s first World Cup final appearance in 2015, seven successive undefeated Test series (2013-2015) and a record-equaling 13 undefeated Tests at home (2012-2016). He also became the longest serving Kiwi coach — six years in charge — surpassing the record of John Bracewell.

The former coach believes the biggest threat for India in the series will be Ross Taylor. The former New Zealand captain has been the second-most successful batsman in ODI cricket after Kohli since the 2015 World Cup — averaging 69.72 in the period. More significantly, he averages over 90 in the last 12 months.

“Ross Taylor is averaging in the 90s in the last 12 months, he is the New Zealand big gun in the middle-order. Apart from that the all-rounders (Jimmy) Neesham, (Colin) De Grandhomme, (Doug) Bracewell and (Mitchell) Santner will all be crucial. The four of them are vying for two spots in World Cup squad. From seam bowling point of view, who is going to back up Trent Boult is a big question. (Tim) Southee has been a good partner but he’s under little bit of pressure, certainly needs to step up,” Hesson, who will be coaching IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab this season, said.

The 44-year-old, who has also coached the likes of Argentina and Kenya, is impressed by MS Dhoni’s return to form in the Australia ODIs, where he was declared the man-of-the-series for three fifties on the trot.

“Dhoni’s runs just shows the value of experience. Most players in the world would have panicked considering the situation Dhoni was in but he looked calmer than anybody else. It suggests that he has been in this situation many times before and knows how to pace a chase. Challenge for Dhoni is going to be when the side is batting first, how hard he needs to go. In terms of chasing a total, which is still the hardest thing in cricket, he is a genius,” Hesson said.

The coach from Dunedin believes wrist spinners in both sides could hold the key to winning the ODI series. India have chinaman Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in their squad while the home side would field leg-spinners Ish Sodhi and Todd Astle in the series.

“Wrist spinners Sodhi, Yadav and Chahal as well as Todd Astle will definitely play a big role, more than the finger in Santner who can provide the all-rounder’s role for the Black Caps. I believe both Sodhi and Astle are in the running for World Cup slots with the kind of pitches what will be on offer in England that time of the year. India with Kuldeep and Chahal have got very good variety. The ability of the New Zealand middle-order to play the wrist spin will probably dictate the course of this ODI series,” Hesson felt.

Finally, on the conditions that will be on offer in venues like Napier, Mount Maunganui, Hamilton and Wellington, Hesson said, “In general, the pitches will be flat. For the wrist spinners, it will offer a little bit in terms of turn. There will be bounce on offer and both sides have good enough pace bowlers to challenge batsmen with bounce. It depends on whether the ball will swing. Hamilton and Maunganui is where ball will swing, so both sides will look to attack in the powerplays when the ball is swinging.”

ah. there’s more ODIs and T20′s after the big bash season. (all of them obviously gonna be at odd times, even if i do persist with kayo, there’s no way i’m staying up that late)
