India vs New Zealand 2017: 5 players to watch out for
After a successful campaign against the Aussies, India are up against New Zealand now, who had toured the country just about a year ago. This time though, the BlackCaps have chalked out an extensive preparation strategy as they have picked 6 players from the New Zealand-A side, which toured India recently.
With the Indians on a roll, it is certainly going to be a tough series for them. However, they are no pushovers and will give their best to win the series.
Let us take a look at certain players who could play an important role for their respective sides.
#5 Hardik Pandya
He has been touted to be the next big thing in Indian cricket for quite some time now, and his recent performances have certainly added weight to the expectations. If one player had to be singled out in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia, it had to be Pandya, whose performances helped the team on more than one occasion.
His six-hitting ability has never been under doubt, but what came as a surprise was his promotion to the no.4 slot, where he performed admirably. His bowling is a still a work in progress, as he gradually grows into a bowler who can give his captain the full quota of 10 overs.
Certainly looking forward to how he performs against the Kiwis.
