Batting first after losing the toss, India set a target of 296 runs to win in front of New Zealand at the loss of seven wickets. In response, the Kiwi team won the match with 17 balls remaining. Let us know which five players were responsible for this defeat in India vs New Zealand ODI Series?
Fast bowler Shardul Thakur’s bowling was the worst. Shradul took only one wicket for 87 runs in 9.1 overs. During this period, Shardul’s economy rate was 9.49.
Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who is considered to be Team India’s death overs specialist, is not seen in his old rhythm at all. He is currently going through his worst form. Bumrah hit 50 runs in 10 overs in the last one-day match. During this time he did not get a single wicket. Bumrah’s form is extremely worrying for Team India.
The young bowler, who performed brilliantly in the last match, failed in this match. Saini scored a lot of runs. Navdeep Saini gives 68 runs in eight overs. Their economy was 8.50 during this period. In the second ODI, Saini made significant contributions from both bowling and batting. However, in that match too, Team India had to face defeat.
Indian captain Virat Kohli’s bat remained silent throughout this one-day series. Virat failed to perform as expected. Kohli, who scored only 15 runs in the last match, managed only nine runs in the last one-day match. In the first one-day, he played a half-century innings of 51 runs.
Mayank Agarwal completely failed in the three-match one-day series. He was included in the team in place of Rohit Sharma, but Mayank could not take advantage of this opportunity properly. Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the squad due to injury during the T20 match against New Zealand, after which Mayank was included in the team.
