IND vs NZ 2nd ODI: Umran Malik will cut this player’s card! Know how India’s possible playing XI will be
Umran Malik can replace Shardul Thakur or Mohammed Shami in the second ODI. Shardul has played his first ODI match for India this year, so it seems a bit difficult for him to be out.
IND vs NZ 2nd ODI Probable Playing XI: The second match of the 3-match ODI series between India and New Zealand is to be played today i.e. on January 21 at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur. This match is special for India in two ways, the first is that Raipur is hosting an international match for the first time, while the second is that Team India can win this match and capture the second consecutive series of the year. Let us tell you that in the first match played in Hyderabad, India won by 12 runs, Team India is leading 1-0 in this series. It will be a matter to be seen which 11 players Captain Rohit Sharma trusts to capture the series.

There are high chances of change in India’s bowling attack in the second ODI. In fact, in the first match against New Zealand, the Indian bowlers showed the way to the pavilion for 131 runs to 6 batsmen of the guests, but they spent 206 runs to dismiss the last 4 batsmen. During this, Bracewell had stopped everyone’s breath by playing a blistering inning of 140 runs. In such a situation, today we can see Umran Malik playing in the playing XI. Now the question is also which player will he replace in the team?
IND vs NZ: Who will get a chance between Thakur and Umran, players will be tested, know what coach Paras Mhambre said before the second match
Umran Malik can replace Shardul Thakur or Mohammed Shami in the second ODI. Shardul has played his first ODI match for India this year, his presence in the playing XI gives India the option of batsman till number 8, as well as his ability to take wickets at crucial junctures compels him to remain in the team. In such a situation, there is more hope of cutting the leaf of Mohammed Shami. Shami’s record in the last 10 ODIs is nothing special.
In the last 10 ODIs, Shami has taken 13 wickets at an average of 39.30 and an economy of 6.07. Talking about Shami’s strike rate, he takes a wicket almost every 39th ball. These figures do not suit any senior bowler of the team.
On the other hand, if we look at the statistics of young sensation Umran Malik, Umran’s economy is only slightly higher than Shami, but he is much better than this experienced bowler in terms of average and strike. Umran Malik has taken 13 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 25.25. During this, his strike rate has been 24. This means that Umran shows the way to the pavilion to a batsman every four overs. This speed of Umran can prove to be very effective to dismiss the tail batsmen as well.

In the absence of KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Akshar Patel, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishaan Kishan and Washington Sundar got a chance in the last match. These players definitely underperformed in the first match, but Rohit would still like to give them more chances. In such a situation, there is less possibility of any change in the batting order and spin department.
