With no all-rounders India is playing with 04 genuine bowlers and Washington Sundar whose late blitz with the bat in first ODI made India passed the 300 mark. Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav still not able to find their feet in ODI format.
Whereas Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer not letting go any opportunity to show their talent. Yooung Umran Malik impressed with the ball in his ODI debut and that extra pace of him definitely created some havoc in New Zealand batting lineup.

Players to Watch Out For in Today NZ vs Ind Match
For New Zealand, it will be Glenn Phillips will hold the key. Phillips was in extra ordinary form in the World T20 2022, where he scored a century. The shift of gears that we witness when Phillips bats is amazing and New Zealand would want him to continue from where he had left.
Shreyas Iyer missing out in T20I’s but his stats in ODI are more than outstanding. He is averaging 49 with strike rate of 98. His presence in the middle order not slowing India down and runs keep flowing but his short ball vulnerability can be cause of concern.
