After the conclusion of the three-match T20I series, team India and New Zealand are set to lock horns for yet another three-match series but in the 50-over format. Both teams are sweating it out in the training sessions and will hope to clinch the series which is scheduled to commence on Friday, November 25.
Amid one of the net practice sessions, a differently-abled fan had a moment to savour as he met with a few players of the Men in Blue and interacted with them. In the video, Divyaansh, was all smiles as he clicked pictures with the likes of Deepak Chahar, Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur, and Rishabh Pant among others.
Team India gear up for ODI series
After clinching the three-match T20I series under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, India will now be led by Shikhar Dhawan during the ODI series. Veteran southpaw Dhawan will hope to add another trophy to India’s cabinet.
The management is reportedly pondering over the idea of split captaincy across all three formats and following a template similar to that of English cricket. While many players such as Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Umran Malik, and Kuldeep Yadav will be gearing up to get a spot in the playing XI ahead of the series, it remains to be seen what transpires.
Speaking about their head-to-head records, the two heavyweights have contested in 110 matches where in the Men in Blue have emerged victorious 55 times and the Kiwis have won it on 49 occasions with one tie and five games yielding no results. BlackCaps skipper Kane Williamson, who missed out on the third and final T20I match due to a pre-arranged medical appointment is all set to feature in the ODI series for the side.
