The Indian team will play in the second and third ODIs at Mount Maunganui. At the moment, India are 1-0 ahead in the five-match ODI series. New Zealand’s team could not face the spin of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in the first ODI while pace bowler Mohammed Shami prevented him from starting a good start. In such a scenario, India will also be the strongest contender for victory in this match. Talk about mount Maunganui’s ‘Bay Oval’ stadium, so far from 2014, so far 7 ODIs have been played. But here’s a new pitch for Team India.
Team India will play for the first time on this field. Talk about New Zealand, so here it has won 3 out of 6. This month at Mount Maunganui, New Zealand won their last two matches against Sri Lanka. The pitch of Mount Maungnui is considered as a paradise for batsmen and there are plenty of runs here. Earlier this month, two ODIs were played between New Zealand and Sri Lanka only. In the ODI match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka on January 3, the Kiwi team first scored 371 runs, including Martin Guptill’s 138 inning.

Team management brought all-rounder Vijay Shankar to McLean Park, but considering the situation, Ravindra Jadeja’s return is possible. Ambati Rayudu, who scored an unbeaten 13 off 23 balls in Napier, could get another chance. All the rest of the relief for India is going to return to Shikhar Dhawan’s form which is not as successful in Australia.
Dhawan scored an unbeaten 75 in Napier. Kohli will be given a break after the third ODI, which will change in the playing eleven on January 28. Shubhaman Gill can be given a chance. New Zealand had won the last home series 4-0 against India but if they did not improve their game in this series, the result could be reversed.
