Highlights | IND VS NZ, 2nd ODI LIVE Updates: Match washed out as New Zealand lead series 1-0

India Vs New Zealand (ind vs nz) 2nd ODI LIVE Cricket Score and Updates: Team India, led by Shikhar Dhawan, will aim for a comeback win after being thrashed by 7 wickets in the first ODI in hands of New Zealandat Auckland on Friday (November 25). Indian bowlers looked listless before they appeared clueless as Tom Latham smashed a brilliant hundred, looking in no trouble throughout the innings. Good news for New Zealand fans is that their captain Kane Williamson has come back to form as well, as his 80-odd ensured they chased down India's 307-run target smoothly. Like it always happens, New Zealand batted like they do, with an attacking mindset, playing around their skipper Williamson. 

India may be forced to make some changes, especially when Shardul Thakur and Yuzvendra Chahal had bad games. There is Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav warming the bench and it will be interesting to see whether Dhawan plays them again or not. Chahar can move the ball both ways at the start. More importantly, Chahar adds that bit of an experience to the lineup which was seen missing in the 1st ODI. Not to forget, Chahar is no mug with the bat either. If needed, he can smash some big sixes and help build partnerships even.  

New Zealand, on the other hand, would be quite confident to play the same XI. There is no reason why they should be changing their playing 11 and fix something which is not broken. NZ should play with their winning combination in the 2nd ODI.

IND vs NZ 2nd ODI: India's predicted playing XI

Given the poor performances of Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur, India may be compelled to make some adjustments.

More significantly, Chahar brings a level of experience to the lineup that was lacking in the first ODI. Not to mention, Chahar is no amateur with a bat. He can even help form partnerships if necessary and can smash some big sixes.

IND vs NZ 2nd ODI: Shikhar Dhawan and Shubhman Gill need to play quick

Although Dhawan and Gill put on an opening partnership of 124 runs in 23.1 overs, they got off to a sluggish start since the pitch provided New Zealand bowlers with some seam and swing, which resulted in just 40 runs being scored during the power play. However, they were unable to combine their runs into a respectable total. The pair went on to each reach their respective half-centuries. Dhawan and Gill also played 46 and 38 dots in the game for dot-ball percentages of 59.74 and 58.46, respectively. Gill only had 44% of the boundary percentage, compared to Dhawan's 72.22%.
