New Zealand vs India: Preview, Dream XI of second ODI

After winning the first ODI of the five-match series, India will be looking to take a substantial lead against New Zealand when they lock horns in Bay Oval.

The two sides face each other in the second ODI on Saturday. India dominated the show in Napier and Virat Kohli would hope his side can build upon their performance.

Here is a detailed match preview.

Gains

India will be looking to gain the maximum

India will be looking to gain the maximum

Kohli has been trying out several combinations keeping the ICC World Cup 2019 in mind.

India pulled off a 2-1 series victory against Australia and the idea will be to gain the maximum from the ongoing set of matches.

With Kohli set to miss the remainder of the tour post the third ODI, it is crucial that the visitors get a stronghold.

Aspects

India have most aspects covered

India's top three batsmen seldom fail in ODIs and at least one of them delivers the goods to get the team home.

The spinners and pacer Mohammed Shami have been in sync with the conditions.

MS Dhoni's form is a bright aspect. However, the number four batting position still looks unsettled. Ambati Rayudu needs to find form, away from home.

New Zealand need to play more sensibly

New Zealand need to play more sensibly

New Zealand were tested against a top quality side and some of their weaknesses were exposed in Napier.

It is a chance for Kane Williamson's side to show their strengths and play more sensibly in tomorrow's encounter.

Kiwis have several match winners and one would expect some changes in XI to bring in more balance. Their batsmen need to keep the side in contention.

Key players

Players to watch out for in second ODI

One would want to see Rayudu take his time and get much needed runs.

If he spends time in the middle, his confidence will surge.

Pacer Mohammed Shami has looked fit and is firing from all cylinders.

For the Kiwis, skipper Williamson will want to carry on his form at home against India. Ross Taylor's experience and aggressiveness could have a positive influence.
