India vs New Zealand ODI Series 2023: There are two days left for the start of the ODI series between India and New Zealand. New Zealand team has come to India to play limited overs series. The first match of the series between the two countries will be played in Hyderabad on 18 January. If seen in the last few series, the Kiwis have done well in the ODI series. Last year, New Zealand defeated India 1-0 in the ODI series on their home ground. At the same time, Kiwis won 2-1 in the ODI series on Pakistan tour. New Zealand has so far defeated India and Pakistan, the strongest teams in Asia. But will the Kiwi team win the series even on India tour? This is a great question. Because New Zealand has not been able to win the ODI series on Indian soil till date.
Waiting for victory since 34 years
New Zealand is waiting to win the first ODI series on Indian soil. The Kiwi team has so far played bilateral series on Indian soil 6 times. But every time he had to face defeat. New Zealand came to India for the first time in the year 1988-89 to play ODI series. New Zealand has toured India 6 times in the last 34 years. But he did not get success in winning the ODI series even once. New Zealand’s best performance on Indian soil was in 2003-04. Then the Kiwi team reached the final of the tri-series. Where he was defeated by Australia in the title match of TVS Cup. Overall, Kiwis have been waiting to win the ODI series in India for more than three decades.
New Zealand’s dream may remain incomplete
This time too, the Kiwi team’s dream of winning the ODI series on India tour may remain unfulfilled. Because many senior players of New Zealand are out of India tour. Kane Williamson and Tim Southee, who came on Pakistan tour, are not part of the ODI series against India. Apart from these, Trent Boult has already been out of New Zealand’s annual contract. In such a situation, New Zealand’s difficulties will increase on the tour of India. Batsmen like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill will test the Kiwi bowlers. This time also New Zealand’s dream of winning the ODI series on Indian soil may remain unfulfilled.
