New Delhi: Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team is all set to lock horns with New Zealand on Sunday. The Men in Blue, after loss in their first WC game against Pakistan, will go into the Dubai International Stadium with the intention of winning this match. Interestingly, like India, New Zealand have also been beaten by Pakistan in their WC opening game.
Both India and New Zealand will aim to register their first win in the tournament. Whichever team loses this match, the journey for them to make it to the semifinals will become more tough. Ahead of the much-awaited match, let’s have a look at top five Indian players to watch out for.
Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma had a disastrous outing against Pakistan as he was dismissed for a duck. opening the account. India were off to a poor start and ultimately they lost the match. Rohit is expected to make a big comeback against New Zealand, and play of the best innings of his T20 career to power India to a much-needed win.
Virat Kohli: In-form Skipper Virat Kohli scored the maximum 57 runs for India against Pakistan, due to which the team reached a respectable score. Virat will aim to not lose his focus and yet again play a captain’s knock for the win against heavyweights New Zealand.
Rishabh Pant: Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant played a blistering innings of 39 runs against Pakistan but failed to complete his job as he got out too soon. Pant, who is in tremendous bating form, is expected to play a quick-fire innings against New Zealand.
Jasprit Bumrah: Star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled some good deliveries but still could not pick a single wicket against Pakistan. The speedster gave away 22 runs from his 3 overs. It is very important for Jasprit Bumrah to return to form in the next match and if India’s mainstay delivers, India will easily win against New Zealand.
Ravindra Jadeja: Team India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also did not perform well with the ball and bat against Pakistan. He can prove to be an important player against New Zealand.
