Ind Vs NZ Highlights And Talking Points

Ahead of the five-match ODI series against New Zealand, India had a total of eight ODIs to cover all their bases ahead of the Champions Trophy next year. MS Dhoni, who usually cringes at any suggestions of ‘experimentation’, admitted the series was an opportunity to try out different players and fill a few slots. By the time India clinched the series 3-2 in Visakhapatnam, Dhoni would have been happy with the progress made on a few fronts during Ind Vs NZ Highlights.

When Tom Latham was first called up to play for New Zealand, in ODIs against Zimbabwe in 2012, the news came to him as a “massive surprise”. He had made a hundred for Canterbury but had otherwise played only a handful of List A games. Four years on, at the end of New Zealand’s tour of India this season, Latham was the side’s highest run-getter – 244 runs at a strike rate of nearly 90 – in the five-match one-day series.
