Indian cricket team are scheduled to play the first ODI against India on November 25 at Eden Park, Auckland. As per the New Zealand tour of India 2022, 3 T20Is and 3 ODI matches between November 18 – 30.

Speaking during Pre-Match Coverage of Prime Video for the 1st ODI, Shastri said: “He’s vastly experienced. He doesn’t get the accolades that he deserves. To be honest, most of the spotlight is on Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

But when you look at his one-day cricket record, and you look at some of the innings he has played against top teams in big games, it’s an outstanding record.”

“A left-hander at the top makes a lot of difference. He is a natural stroke player, he has got all the shots to countertop class fast bowling, the pull, the cut, and the drive. He likes it when the ball is coming onto the bat, and I think his experience will be handy here.

There are a lot of talented youngsters around, but I think in this format of the game, his experience will be in value,” he added.

In the ongoing first ODI, Team India posted 306/7 in 50 overs after being asked to bat first. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson poses a great threat to India during their run chase where he and Tom Latham join hands and scored 110+ runs partnership.

As of now, New Zealand scored 199-3 wickets in their 307 runs chase.
