IND vs NZ Pitch Report for 2nd ODI: The young Indian team, which has traveled to New Zealand, won the first 3-match T20I series under the leadership of Hardik Pandya with a score of 1-0, and is playing in the next ODI series under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan.

In the first match of the series which started on November 25, India, who performed well with the bat and scored 306 runs, lost miserably as Latham-Williamson could not separate the pair in the last 30 overs. So, trailing 1 – 0* (3) early on, India will be in a life-or-death situation where they must win the 2nd match on November 26 to win the series.

Despite batting well in the first match, failure to score 30-40 in extras was a factor in the defeat. Also, the bowlers, who were the main reason for the defeat, can win the match only if they take wickets. Spinners in particular need to make an impact in the middle overs and take wickets.

On the other hand, New Zealand, who won the first match by a landslide, won this match with the same freshness and won the series and are ready to retaliate against India for their defeat in the T20 series.

Seddon Park

The winner-takes-all match will be played on November 27 at 7 am IST at the Seddon Park Cricket Ground in Hamilton. Established in 1950, this ground has been hosting international competitions since 1981.

  1. New Zealand has won 23 and lost 7 in 32 ODIs in the history of this naturally designed ground where 10000+ fans can lie happily on the green grass ground. 2 The match was abandoned due to rain.
  2. On the other hand India have recorded only 8 losses and 3 wins in 11 ODIs played at this ground. In particular, India faced New Zealand here in 7 matches and recorded only one win in 2009. Lost 6 matches. So it is necessary to play with great care this time.

  4. Virender Sehwag (125*), Shreyas Iyer (103) and Shikhar Dhawan (100) are the Indian players who have scored hundreds in ODIs at this venue. Mohammad Shami (8) and Anil Kumble (5) are the top 2 Indian bowlers who have taken most wickets as no Indian bowler has ever taken 5 wickets in a match at this ground. India’s highest score at this ground: 347/4, 2009.

Pitch Report

IND vs NZ Pitch Report: Seddon Park, the venue of the tournament, has historically favored batting. Also, this ground is smaller, unlike the Auckland ground where the first match was held, with equal boundary sizes on all four sides. As the outer pitches are fast here, aggressive batsmen can use the good pace and bounce available on the pitch to score big runs.

The ball comes onto the bat nice and quick. The average first-innings total at the venue in the last three matches reads 248. So this match could be a 280 – 300+ run match. At the same time, since it is an open field, the wind speed of 10 – 20+ km/h will favor the swinging fast bowlers more. Also, skilled spinners make a regular impact in the middle overs.

Since this is a day-night match and teams who have chased here have won many matches in history, the captains who win the toss and decide to bowl first can seed success.
