New Zealand shocked after Team India, this spinner is also out after star players

New Delhi: Ahead of the India-New Zealand ODI series to be held from Wednesday, January 18, where on the one hand, Team India got a shock due to the ouster of Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, the concern of New Zealand has also increased. The Kiwi team has also got a big blow. Kiwi team’s star spinner Ish Sodhi has been ruled out of the first ODI. Players like Kane Williamson, Tim Southee and Trent Boult have already been dropped from the New Zealand team. In such a situation, it will prove to be a big blow for the Kiwi team.

The New Zealand team will miss star spinner Ish Sodhi. New Zealand captain Tom Latham gave this information on the eve of the first ODI in Hyderabad. Latham said during the press conference before the match- “Unfortunately there is a setback for Ish. He will not be available tomorrow but hopefully he will be available for the next few matches.”

Bolt, Southee and Williamson will be missed

Latham also said that “the absence of Boult, Southee and Williamson will cost the team”. However, the younger players will get a chance to perform, he added. Everyone has played international cricket in the team. Which is a bonus. Now it is his turn to move on. We have Lockie Ferguson who has played a lot of cricket in India.”

Last chance to play in India before World Cup

The Kiwi skipper also said that this would be the last time for his team to play in India before the 2023 ODI World Cup. He also emphasized on his team’s victory in Pakistan and the similarity with India. He said- “We played a good game in Pakistan. Some players had never toured Pakistan.

It’s really good to come away with a series win. Here we will try to adapt to the circumstances as much as possible. The pitches will potentially be slightly better in India than in Pakistan. Every time we play India it is a competitive series.” Latham also acknowledged Virat Kohli’s return to form and said that his team will try to make things as difficult as possible for him. New Zealand had defeated India 1-0 at their home in the last ODI series in November 2022.
