Soon the cricketing world is shifting towards the 50-over format. 50 over the World Cup is on the verge. India will host this edition of WC in 2023. Teams are bracing up well and started their preparation for the world cup. Indian team is visiting the Kiwis for 3 match ODI series. India has whitewashed the t20i series against New Zealand.

India will see a comeback of old traditional players like Shikhar Dhawan who is leading the team and some newcomers like Umran Malik. It will be one the most anticipated one-day international series keeping in mind the 2023 WC. Unfortunately, India lost the first ODI even by posting a good total on board. As usual India’s batting department was up to the mark but bowling could not perform well. Umran did strike and got an early breakthrough but it was not enough. The second ODI got washed away due to heavy rains and now everyone is focusing on the 3rd ODI which will be a series decider. Kiwis have the upper hand and can whitewash the series but the Indian team can bounce back well.
