India and New Zealand go head to head on Saturday in the 2nd ODI of the 3-match series as the tour moves ahead. Both teams will be looking for a win here.

Team India were quite good in the first ODI to win it against a strong New Zealand team but will require similar efforts in the crucial second game. They will be aiming to win the series.

The batsman will again be tasked with getting the runs. Bowling wise they will require to be restricting.

Coach and captain will have the game plan in mind and it is upto execution.

On the other hand, New Zealand will be disappointed after loosing the first game in which they could have won. But good efforts will definitely reap the rewards.

The Kiwi batsman will again have a huge task at their hands. While their bowlers will just need to be switched on.

Head coach will have the tactics in mind and players will have to follow it.

Coming to the wicket, it will be a balanced one.

Team news and possible lineups

There are no fresh injury concerns for both sides at the moment.

India XI : Kohli, R. Sharma (C), Gill, S. Yadav, H. Pandya, Sundar, Kishan, K. Yadav, Siraj, Shami, S. Thakur.

New Zealand XI : Nicholls, M. Bracewell, Finn Allen, D. Conway, D. Mitchell, Santner, Shipley, Latham (C), Phillips, L. Ferguson, Tickner.


I think India will be the favoured side again given home conditions but New Zealand will come back hard and will be bend upon levelling the series. So a good game won by India in the end.
