India vs New Zealand 2017: 5 Indian players to watch out for
These players will have more than a point to prove.
The Indian cricket team led by Virat Kohli has been on a rampage in the recent past across all the three formats. After having brushed Australia aside in the just-concluded ODI series, the hosts now await the arrival of New Zealand.
Considering the depth in the Indian team, they start as overwhelming favourites against New Zealand, a team which has been cooling its heels since the Champions Trophy and thus will be up against a team which has been motoring along for the past 15 months.
Here in this article, we take a look at five Indian players the Kiwis should watch out for in the upcoming series.
#5 Yuzvendra Chahal
The diminutive leg-spinner has become one of the go-to men for Virat Kohli in the short time he has been associated with the Indian team.
He has control during the middle overs, keeps things tight, and picks up wickets. Considering the struggles New Zealand had against Amit Mishra during their previous tour, Chahal can be more than a handful for them in the series.
Also, with Kuldeep for company, Chahal would want to cement his position in the side as a genuine match-winner for Kohli.
