So guys! England’s team’s performance has been somewhat off the card with Ashes trophy already lost and then another loss in triangular Tri-Series with New Zealand Australia. With just one victory in the Tri-Series. So, New Zealand vs England 2nd ODI to take place at Seddon Park, Hamilton
Talking of New Zealand, Bowlers like Trent Boult, Ish Sodhi and Tim Southee would have to work on their strategies to get the English batting lineup weak and slow. Ish Sodhi’s return has only helped in bringing morale of bowling lineup. While loss of Dawid Malan would be felt after his last contribution of 53 runs in 36 balls and a wicket.
New Zealand is on homeground benefit with favourable pitch. England will be disappointed after their loss in the first game as they had New Zealand struggling in the latter part of their run-chase.
However, the fact that the heavy dew on the ground made the ball wet and hence limited the effectiveness of the England bowlers should not be overlooked in New Zealand vs England 2nd ODI.
Venue: Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui
The wicket at the Bay Oval has generally been good enough for batting. And also since the last two one-day internationals at this ground have been won by the side that has batted first,The pitch is expected to offer more pace and bounce than the one in Hamilton.
