New Zealand vs India Highlights And Cricket Score 2nd Match - ODI Summary

End of Over : 48.3 IND: 251/10

That ends a nerve-wracking game. A fine way to end your Saturday evening, eh? There is one more match left in this series. We head back to Mount Maunganui where the 5th T20I was played. The third and final ODI will be played on Tuesday, 11th February, 2020 at 3 pm local (0200 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

New Zealand skipper, Tom Latham, says that it's a great victory today. Mentions that in the last match the batsmen won them the game and today the bowlers did the job. Tells that it's always a funny wicket and sometimes 270 looks like 290 if you pick early wickets so he was okay with the total. Adds that the way his bowlers kept picking wickets throughout was really pleasing but he was never satisfied till the last wicket went down. On Luke Ronchi coming out to field, Latham replies that it was just about juggling as Tim Southee was not feeling well. Praises Kyle Jamieson for his debut game. States that winning 3-0 will be great but he wants to keep his fingers crossed.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, starts by saying that it's been two pretty good games and it's good to watch for the fans. Is happy with the way they finished after the top order flopped. Admits they gave away too many runs at the backend of the first innings. Praises the batting efforts of Jadeja, Saini and Iyer. States that it's a big revelation for them to see the kind of fightback shown by the lower order. Tells that they have nothing to lose now and can play expressive cricket that they are known to play and might hand out chances to some fringe players. Shares that there were no messages sent to Saini and Jadeja and they were following their instincts as Kohli feels that sometimes it confuses the minds of the batsmen. Also adds that the team wanted them to take their own decisions. Is pleased with the fightback shown by the lower order which also gives confidence to the middle and top order batsmen.

KYLE JAMIESON IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! The debutant says that it's a bit of a high at the moment and he is trying to sink in the feeling. Tells that it was nice to contribute with the bat and the ball. On the batting plans, it was just to try and stay there till the end. Adds that he felt relieved after getting a wicket in his first over. On the difference that international cricket brings, Kyle mentions that it's quite high intensity with a big crowd watching.

Coming to the bowling. Who lost their nerves more? Guess, India. They had the innings under control but just could not hit the yorker mark consistently at the death. Chahal took a 3-fer while Thakur got a couple. New Zealand were well on top till the 31st over but they nearly found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. All bowlers contributed but the ones who did most of the damage were Kyle Jamieson and Tim Southee. The debutant took the first wicket and also broke the 8th wicket stand to get rid of Saini, ending India's hopes while Southee dismissed Kohli and Jadhav, not allowing the middle order to fire. Please stay tuned for the presentation.

Nothing is over till it is really over. Jadeja and Saini proved that. Navdeep Saini proved to be the surprise package, as initially he took his time but then started to cut loose. He took on Colin de Grandhomme in the 44th over, smashing the bowler for three boundaries and getting India back in the run chase. Jadeja and Saini added 76 for the 8th wicket and almost took India home.

Surely 274 was not a big target on a small ground for the Indians. But it did seem like the pitch got a bit on the slower side. The visitors lost their openers cheaply and then when the floodlights took full effect, batting looked to be getting difficult. The middle order was blown away and all of a sudden, the tourists found themselves 153/7, needing 121 from 113 balls.

Let us start from how it all began. New Zealand started brilliantly after being asked to bat first and were 142/1 in the 27th over before collapsing to 197/8 in the 42nd. But Ross Taylor found an able partner in debutant Kyle Jamieson as the duo added an unbeaten 76 for the 9th wicket in 51 balls, taking the team total close to 275.

How did this match reach here? We were all looking at New Zealand 200 all out. Naah... debutant Kyle Jamieson had a different say. And then, with India reeling at 153/7, we thought it was game over. But Saini and Jadeja fought almost till the end - nearly taking their team over the line.

Phew! We get another humdinger. New Zealand and India games. Will they cease causing heart attacks? But what a game. A match of the fightbacks.

48.3 W

James Neesham to Ravindra Jadeja. OUT! Jadeja holes out. NEW ZEALAND TAKE THE SERIES! Neesham fails to land his attempted yorker and it's a low full toss outside off. Jadeja lines up for a big shot over long off but fails to pump it over the fielder. It falls straight down de Grandhomme's throat in the deep and NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 22 RUNS!

48.2 0

James Neesham to Ravindra Jadeja. That's flirting with the tramline! A full toss this time by Neesham, outside off, Jadeja swings his bat across the line but misses.

48.1 0

James Neesham to Ravindra Jadeja. Mishit! Neesham fires in a very full ball outside off, Jadeja winds up for a big shot but it takes the toe end of his bat and rolls in front of the keeper.

End of Over : 48 5 Runs 48.3: 251/9
47.6 0

Hamish Bennett to Jasprit Bumrah. A yorker around leg, Bumrah digs it out on the leg side. 23 needed off 12 balls and Jadeja should take it on himself now to finish this match.

47.5 W

Hamish Bennett to Ravindra Jadeja. OUT! Chahal is found short! A total mix-up but Jadeja is not at fault at all. Full and wide outside off, Jadeja squeezes this through the covers. He takes the single and is happy with it. There is a slight misfield and Chahal senses that opportunity to come back for the second. But Jadeja puts his hand out and clearly yells NO. Chahal does not hear that and is halfway down the track. He has to return and by that time, Neesham returns a good throw to Latham who whips the bails off. The square leg umpire does not even refer it upstairs. Replays show that it was a close call but Chahal was short. He smiles.

47.4 2

Hamish Bennett to Ravindra Jadeja. Too full in length on middle, Jadeja drives it straight back and Bennett fails to stop it in his followthrough. They complete a single and Chahal shows good awareness in turning for the second in time. They have gathered two in total.

47.4 wd

Hamish Bennett to Ravindra Jadeja. Wide! Bennett senses the batsman moving back to create room and bowls it way wide outside off. It's also outside the tramline as Jadeja reaches out and misses. The umpire stretches his arms.

47.3 1

Hamish Bennett to Yuzvendra Chahal. Yet another very full ball by Bennett. It's right in the line of the stumps and Chahal goes hard at it. The ball takes the inner half and rolls through square leg for one.

47.2 0

Hamish Bennett to Yuzvendra Chahal. Swing and a miss! Bennett offers width outside off, Chahal throws his bat at it but misses.

47.1 0

Hamish Bennett to Yuzvendra Chahal. Spears in a very full ball on middle, Chahal defends it back to the bowler. That's more the line and length they should be bowling, particularly to the tail-enders.

End of Over : 47 12 Runs 48.3: 246/8
46.6 1

Kyle Jamieson to Yuzvendra Chahal. The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total. 28 needed off 18 balls.

46.5 4

Kyle Jamieson to Yuzvendra Chahal. FOUR! Jamieson is not smart with his plans here. Bangs in a short ball outside off, Chahal picks it and cleverly tries to ramp it down to third man. The ball flies off the outside edge down to third man for a boundary. India are smelling a come from behind victory!

46.4 2

Kyle Jamieson to Yuzvendra Chahal. What a shot and what a stop in the deep! Short in length and outside off, Chahal plays a controlled pull shot over mid-wicket. It's destined to go to the fence but Chapman comes haring across to his left, dives full length and pulls it back just before the fencing. Saves two.

46.3 1

Kyle Jamieson to Ravindra Jadeja. Smart bowling by Jamieson! He follows the batsman down the leg side with a short of a length ball. Jadeja fails to work it away and is hit on the thigh pad. They collect a leg bye.

Summary

Some of their bowling and fielding frailties exposed in the series-opener, India cricket team will aim for quick course correction when they take on a resurgent New Zealand in the second One Day International (ODI) at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday. Flying high after the 5-0 whitewash of New Zealand cricket team in the T20 International series, India was brought to the ground after the hosts took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with a four-wicket win in the first ODI.

The Black Caps chased down their highest-ever total in ODI cricket at Seddon Park and the toss will be crucial once again at the even shorter Eden Park where the side batting second will have a clear advantage. New Zealand opted to bat here in both the T20Is, but India chased well in both instances albeit in different circumstances. India finds themselves in a familiar situation after the loss in Hamilton. But the visitors have come from behind against the West Indies and Australia to win their last two ODI series and Virat Kohli's men will look to do the same here.

The opposition batsmen took advantage to hit big and the Indian attack didn't have any answers. Like in Chennai against the West Indies, or in Mumbai against Australia, India's loss at Hamilton was down to their lack of ability to take wickets in the middle overs. In the first ODI, skipper Virat Kohli turned to Jasprit Bumrah every time he went searching for a wicket. This over-dependency is something India would want to address in their composition.

India's fielding too will be under the scanner. In each of those losses at Chennai, Mumbai and Hamilton, it was poor despite flashes of individual brilliance. The general fielding standards have gone down since the Bangladesh series and there is a need for a collective all-round effort from the visitors to bounce back. Generally, high catches are tougher in the windy conditions in New Zealand, and the odd lights at Eden Park won't help either.

At the nets, the Men in Blue on Friday had an optional training session. Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur both didn't just bowl, but also batted in the nets. Thakur was expensive in his outings at Eden Park during the T20Is, and he didn't impress in the first ODI either and India could think of replacing him with Saini. Perhaps it was due to the short boundaries. In that light, bowling Jadhav at Eden Park makes even less sense. It could merit giving Shivam Dube a go here, or even playing a full-time batsman in Manish Pandey. The other contemplation will be about Kedar Jadhav's role in the side. Selected primarily to bring balance to the playing eleven with his part-time spin, Kohli didn't give him a single over in Hamilton.

Rest of the batting line-up picks itself with the new opening pair of Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw settling in well in their first outing and the team management will hope the duo can add a few more runs than last time. For New Zealand, a change in personnel has worked wonders after their T20 whitewash. Stand-in skipper Tom Latham's batting in the middle worked for them, and Henry Nicholls confirmed he will continue to open the innings with Martin Guptill. Ross Taylor has been in rampaging form and he will look to continue the good work on Saturday.

Regular skipper Kane Williamson is still days away from fitness, while Scott Kuggeleijn is ruled out of the second ODI due to illness. Auckland pacer, the six-foot-eight tall Kyle Jamieson will make his debut on home ground on Saturday, replacing Ish Sodhi in the side.
