Editor's Pick (ODI): India - New Zealand

India has leveled the series. Phew. Winning by six wickets, India came back strongly after losing the first ODI. So this is where we stand. Three ODI match series. One win by each team. Meaning the third match is the decider. It is always fun when you wait until the last match of the series to see who wins the tournament. It kinda keeps the tournament alive and filled with excitement and suspense doesn’t it? Course there are some passionate fans who care more about their team winning first. Suspense and all later. Where do you stand? If you are reading this, do drop a line saying so. It will be nice.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the calm and composed, tried to bowl with the new ball in good areas more than swinging it. His confidence helped him get the needed wickets. The fitter he gets, the better he plays; is his theory. Having the bowlers and fielders click give the team a wholesome morale boost. Dhawan struck the ball well and Dinesh is adding to the numbers too. It was a modest target in all fairness. India came out shining, getting the required 230 runs with ease in 46 overs. NZ captain feels it was the low score that got to them. It does matter, doesn’t it? The bowlers’ confidence takes a hit when they have to defend a low score.
