India in New Zealand 2019

We've had the ODI and T20 series between NZ and India start earlier today. I was surprised when we managed to restrict the Kiwis to 157, especially after the pitch report spoke about scores around 300. It was a good display by our bowlers once again. I just hope they aren't peaking too soon, though.

Kohli to be rested for the 4th and 5th ODIs and the T20Is.

I expected better fight from the Kiwis, but it has been pretty easy for the Indians thus far. Another comfortable win, and it is 3-0 now.

In retrospect, Australia massively overachieved winning one game and being competitive in another against India. Should have thumped us in all three.

Perhaps they're resting Kohli to make it more sporting. Though it seems New Zealand's problem in their batting, so far in the series they haven't made 250.

Perhaps NZ should first aim to bat for full 50 overs. Seems like the NZ batsmen are in T20 mode.

Good win for India - NZ are a pretty decent ODI team so mean feat to beat them so comprehensively away from home - but India tend to be pretty solid in bilateral series in white ball cricket (competitive in T20Is and excellent in ODIs).

The challenge is to produce when it really matters - they've consistently choked in the big games in the last few major tournaments. All that will be forgotten if they can do the business this summer, though hard to look past England really.

CONSISTENTLY choked? Facts please?

As far as i remember there was just one game in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 where India lost to Pakistan. However India was the only side in that tournament to not have lost any games before the loss to Pakistan in Final. Pakistan was comprehensively defeated in the same tournament in the earlier game.

Anyway, India has 2 titles of ICC Champions trophy which is equal to Australia.

Perhaps this summer England has the chance of winning their FIRST ever Cricket World Cup.


Even in 2018 India played won the two multilateral tournaments they participated in.

Well I was going to say, when it comes to choking in limited overs comps, England are by far the best. We've even managed to lose two finals in the Champs Trophy and T20 to the W Indies when we were well on top.

At the moment, England and India look miles ahead of everyone else. Which no doubt means we lose in a semi to Pakistan again.

England have played 7 limited over finals and lost 6 of them, at least 3 when they were favourites. Shows there's a problem somewhere.

India did lose to Sri Lanka in that tournament. Anyway, I don't subscribe to the choker thing.

Just a bit of green and bounce on pitch, no Kohli or Dhoni, and we see how 'good' this Indian batting lineup is! Absolutely poor batting, partly caused by some wonderful bowling by Boult and Co.

Sound thrashing, as expected. Not very good signs for the WC, if the ball does something in England.

So India were outstanding in the run-up to the final (not quite as outstanding as winning everything but close enough) but then got blitzed in the final. Is this really helping your point?

Look, you can call it a choke or anything else if you think there's a better word. I'm not really bothered by that, I'm more concerned that India have lost in the semi-final or final of each of the last four ICC tournaments (admittedly they've not always looked brilliant in the run-up). There's an issue there that the team needs to address if they have any dreams of winning this year.

By the way we've batted in the last couple of matches, we aren't much of a favourite.

Yes - I was about to say, getting knocked out in the group stages is certainly one way to avoid any debates on choking!

Also, the impact of no Kohli in 2 games just puts into perspective how tough it’s been for Australia over the last few months - and they’ve really not done terribly in the circumstances.
