Virat Kohli’s men proved their credentials in 1st ODI against New Zealand in a 3 match ODI series after beating them by 8 wickets. Indian pace bowler Mohammad Shami picked 3 wickets while the spinner Kuldeep Yadav took 4 wickets.
In the batting department, Shikhar Dhawan shined playing an unbeaten knock of 75 runs.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for the last 2 ODIs. The 2nd ODI is on Saturday and here are some fantasy cricket tips for you –
#1 Take Ambati Rayudu – He will play at #3
Ambati Rayudu hasn’t been impressive at all off late. This will be the perfect opportunity for him to justify his place in the team as Virat Kohli has been rested for the last two ODIs.
You can even captain him if you are looking for differentials.
#2 Stick with Ross Taylor
There are no reasons for not sticking with Ross Taylor. He has been in the form of his life for the last couple of years. He is just behind Virat Kohli in terms of highest average in ODIs since WC 2015.
#3 Ish Sodhi might start – Keep an eye on him
The leggie had a wonderful series against SL recently. While The Kiwis opted for Mitch Santner because he can bat a bit as well, however, there are good chances that Ish Sodhi might start in 2nd ODI.
