India have secured the ODI series in New Zealand by winning the first three matches of the 5 match series. It was expected to be a tough series for the Indians as New Zealand are strong at home. However, they have made light work of the Kiwis so far. So here are the top three things that we learned from India’s ODI series win in New Zealand:
1) Dashing Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan has had a wonderful series. He has been consistent and helped India in getting fantastic starts. His partnership with Rohit Sharma has flourished and he seems to be finding the middle of the bat more often than not. This is an ominous sign for the rest of the world with the World Cup now not far away. Anyways, Shikhar Dhawan’s record in the UK is fantastic. So bowlers beware!
2) King Kuldeep
Kuldeep Yadav has become one of the cornerstones of this Indian bowling attack. His Chinaman spin has managed to dismiss batsmen consistently. He too has formed a partnership with his team-mate Chahal which is proving to be really beneficial for the Indians. New Zealand have failed to counter his spin and have given away wickets to him regularly.
3) Sensational Shami
Mohammad Shami has been one of India’s most underrated bowlers. He has the uncanny knack of picking up wickets at regular intervals. Not many people realised that he was the man of the match in two of the three ODIs that have taken place. His consistency is amazing and he can prove to be a major weapon for India in the World Cup.
To sum up, it has been a great win for the Indians. They are becoming stronger in overseas tournaments, which makes them a major threat for their rivals for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019!
