New Zealand vs India 4th ODI – Rotobash Fantasy Cricket Tips
Both the teams are likely to make changes in their playing XI.
Updated - Jan 30, 2019 5:36 pm
The Men in Blue have already clinched the 5-match ODI series with an unassailable 3-0 margin. Team India’s objective now is to solidify the lead and attempt maiden clean sweep over the Kiwis in their own backyard. On the other hand, New Zealand will play for the pride and finish the series on a positive note.
It was expected that New Zealand will be more competitive than Australia, but all the matches played so far have been one-sided. In the previous game, the home team’s middle order particularly Tom Latham and Ross Taylor showed some character against the spin bowlers as they stitched a 119-run partnership, but once that stand was broke they lost their way and crumbled from 178/3 to 243 all out. Their bowling is also looking pale as baring Trent Boult no other bowler is able to give the team required breakthroughs.
Virat Kohli has been rested for the final two ODIs and Rohit Sharma will lead the team for the remainder of the series.
