Second Unofficial ODI Preview: India A vs. New Zealand A

New Zealand have their eyes on making a comeback into the series as they lock horns with the visiting India A side in the second Unofficial ODI of the three match series at Mount Maunganui. The first match of the series saw the India A side registering a thrilling four-wicket victory over the home side. Fifties from Vijay Shankar and Shreyas Iyer and valuable contributions from Manish Pandey and Shubman Gill helped them in chasing down a tricky target of 309 runs.

It was a bitter experience for the hosts as fifties from Hamish Rutherford, Tim Seifert and James Neesham went in vain. It was their bowlers who couldn't hold on to their nerves in the final overs and hence allowed the Indian batsmen easy runs. But they would like to mend their mistakes this time around.

Weather and Pitch conditions: Sunny. No chance of rain. Last match saw a total in excess of 300 being posted in both innings. The same can be expected once again.

Predicted Line Ups:


NZ A: George Worker, Hamish Rutherford, Will Young, Corey Anderson [C], Tim Seifert (wk), James Neesham, Cole McConchie, Doug Bracewell, Hamish Bennett, Lockie Ferguson, Seth Rance

IND A: Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey [C], Ishan Kishan (wk), Vijay Shankar, Krunal Pandya, Krishnappa Gowtham, Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini
