The ongoing Indian tour of New Zealand has witnessed the visitors completely dominating the Black Caps. With the victory at Bay Oval, the Men in Blue have already won the series and now look to be heading for a whitewash. On the other hand, the hosts have failed to exert much pressure on India so far.

After being bundled out for 157 in the first game, the Kiwis were routed by 90 runs in the next game. Even today, India didn’t have to face any trouble as they successfully chased 244. The opening conundrum consisting of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro have failed to prolong their stay at the crease. It has hurt the New Zealand prospects badly.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has bowled quite significantly in the ongoing limited overs series so far. The right arm pacer has taken four wickets so far at an economy rate of less than 5. However, Sunil Gavaskar had a funny question for 28-year-old bowler from Uttar Pradesh.

“So tell me is it a greater challenge to bowl to Indian batsmen in the nets than to ball to the New Zealand batsmen in the match,” Gavaskar asked Bhuvneshwar.

While the Indian batting lineup has been piling up runs at a consistent basis, the New Zealanders have failed to replicate the same. Bhuvneshwar didn’t give an outright answer. However, former Kiwi all-rounder Styris took note of the same and remarked that the Indian women’s team would have given better competition to the men’s side.

“You and I Sunny, are falling out here. It probably is. We are speculating in the New Zealand commentary box whether the Indian men’s team should take on the Indian women’s teams tomorrow instead. Might be much fairer contest,” Scott Styris was quoted as saying by India Today.
