Bumrah drops Mitchell

Kuldeep was getting his game back on track.
He bested Ravindra twice, the batter’s attempts to go deep in his crease to flat bat some runs, and to come down the track and smash some, going in vain.
Those were two good wins for the bowler.
Then Mitchell (69 off 75) comes on strike and Kuldeep gets one over him too. A 114 kph change-up as soon as he saw the right-hander going to reverse sweep hits him on the arm and Rohit is in splits laughing.

The very next ball is an artful little googly. The line is wide. The spin takes it wider. Mitchell is a power hitter but when it’s that wide, he’ll have to reach away from his body, and that diminishes his power. Bumrah is at long-off. He runs to his right, he gets two hands to it, but it slips right through and goes for four.
The focus on Bumrah stays as he chases a leg bye off Ravindra to the third-man boundary and doesn’t put in a dive. He doesn’t put in a dive because he is wary of the outfield. He cannot get injured. He is India’s No. 1 asset. He cannot get injured for the sake of saving two runs.
India eventually got the breakthrough they’ve been searching for 152 balls. Ravindra launches a length ball from Shami down to long-on and walks off for a well-made 75. That left him only four runs short of being the highest scorer at this World Cup. It’s his first World Cup!
The partnership ends at 159, coming at better than a run-a-ball.

Where’s Bumrah?

Strangely, Rohit hasn’t brought Bumrah back in the middle overs.
You’d think he’s India’s best chance of a wicket, and once one falls, they can build pressure again.
Kuldeep will become effective again because he’d be bowling to a guy who isn’t used to the conditions here.
48Kuldeep has conceded more runs in just five overs today than he’s done in any of his previous games at the World Cup
One-way traffic – Mitchell vs Kuldeep in this game. NZ are 167 for 2 after 32 overs.

NZ earn their luck

India thought they’d broken the partnership when a cross-seam yorker from Siraj rapped Ravindra on the pads.
The on-field decision from umpire Adrian Holdstock gave it out but DRS – the two batters only went there because they knew how hard it would be for a new guy to come and deal with this two-paced pitch – and the replay eventually showed that the ball from over the wicket pitched outside the left-hander’s leg stump. No lbw.
A few balls later, in Ravindra Jadeja’s last over, Daryl Mitchell tried to go inside out and find a boundary over cover, but he made too much room and offered a fine edge to the wicketkeeper. But Rahul got up a little too early and he wasn’t able to get his gloves on it.
A little luck going NZ’s way. They’ve also earned a bit of that by absorbing the pressure from the early overs and transferring it back.
Even Jadeja, who is a banker, wasn’t able to get through this partnership unscathed. Mitchell was coming down the track to him, he was sweeping and reverse-sweeping him too, he wasn’t letting him settle easily

Siraj and the pitch

This is not a 300-350 pitch.
India has sensed that they cannot let this partnership give NZ the foundation to aim for a score in that region and they’ve brought Siraj back the bowler, to his credit, is making the most of the vagaries of the pitch
It’s slow. It’s two-paced. And every time he goes for his tricks – the cross-seamers, the bouncers, and the slower balls – it’s putting the batter off.
Daryl Mitchell, who is excellent against the short ball, was nearly beaten for pace.
Rachin Ravindra, looking to turn one just short of a good length, into midwicket connected only with his leading edge.
Lockie Ferguson hits these same short lengths in the middle overs. He’ll be taking notes.
India is expecting dew later in the evening and if that does arrive, the ball will start to skid off the pitch and come on nicely.
NZ will have to factor that in as well as they set this total

Ravindra fifty

257 runs and counting for Rachin Ravindra from five innings in his first World Cup campaign – the highest for NZ in 2023. He’s just got to a fifty against India at a strike rate of 89 after coming in at 19 for 2
He’s only 23 years old. His judgment of length is excellent, especially against spin and it caters to his strength which is his back foot game against slow bowling. His family living in Bangalore will be coming to see him when NZ shifts bases there for the next leg of this World Cup. They’ll be very proud

Mitchell at No. 4

8times that Daryl Mitchell has come out of his crease, and those trips have earned him 17 runs – two sixes, a four, and a single
He’s batting out there while NZ’s greatest No. 4 batter is in the commentary box.
Ross Taylor has been a huge part of this team’s success in ICC tournaments. When a player like that retires, it usually takes a bit of time to replace him.
But Mitchell has ripped that up. He has been so consistent, across formats, and it is because of a very simple method. He trusts his power and he focuses that power on hitting straight. Three of his four boundaries today have come in that direction.
This is the thing with New Zealand. They don’t crumble under a crisis. They take the blows – just like they did against Bumrah and Siraj – then they get themselves back up, back on steady ground, and then they punch back.
Mitchell’s also doing one other clever thing. He’s targeting Kuldeep on a pitch that isn’t turning a whole lot. He’s backing his reach to get to the pitch of the ball and his power to dominate the spinner. If he can mess with one of India’s bowlers – they’re only playing five today – that’d be a huge tick because Rohit will have no one else to turn to.

The NZ revival

50off 53 balls put on by Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell after coming together at 19 for 2
Kane Williamson had carried the drinks out to these two batters a little while ago. He’s the captain of this side and he’s only in a bib because he’s injured.
I’m going to take a bit of a logic leap here. Bear with me. NZ could’ve picked anybody else to run that bottle of fluid out. But they sent the guy who is a specialist at walking in at the fall of early wickets and navigating tough batting conditions. He does it across formats. He does it with almost machine-like efficiency. So maybe he was out there to figure out how to chart the rest of the innings.
NZ pride on making the most of the information available to them and their captain is one of the richest sources of it

Toss and dew

Nagraj Gollapudi: Dew, a natural phenomenon, has been a determining factor for teams at the toss in India. This is mainly because of the significant difference in temperatures in India between day and late evenings. However, to reduce the impact of dew, the BCCI groundsmen have been using a chemical APSHA 80 on the outfield in white-ball matches including IPL. This chemical is water-resistant and is sprayed once on the day before the match and then at least three hours before the toss. The chemical is not sprayed during the match as that will make the surface slippery.
The chemical ensures that once the dew comes, it doesn’t spread. However, groundsmen point out that dew is only minimized but not eradicated. Another way to curtail dew is by reducing watering the outfield at least a day or two before the match. The grass on the outfield also needs to be trimmed fine.
All this ensures that dew is not the dominant factor, even though it has come as early as 6 pm IST at some of the venues this World Cup.

Ravindra dropped by Jadeja

On 12 off 21, Rachin Ravindra is dropped by Ravindra Jadeja and it was a dolly too. Straight to him at point, at no great pace either.
This was just three balls after Ravindra had also used DRS to save himself from a caught-behind decision given against him.
A little while earlier, Rohit Sharma left the field, seemingly concerned for his little finger on his left hand. He was trying to slide on the outfield and slipped. Spent a long time staring at it before he walked off to get some treatment.
It’s safe to say it’s all been happening early on in this game.
And I forgot that India burned a review looking for Ravindra’s wicket when Bumrah, the bowler who created that lbw chance, said it was going down the leg side. He was overruled and the replays showed he should’ve been trusted

NZ stuck

34 the third-lowest 10-overs score at this World Cup
Bumrah’s economy rate after four overs: 2.75
Siraj’s economy rate after four overs: 1.75
Daryl Mitchell’s arrival at No. 4 changes the script a bit. He likes going to bowlers. His first act as a batter in the game against Bangladesh was to hit Shakib Al Hasan for a six. That little bit of proactivity messed with Siraj’s rhythm and in the end his fifth over ended up looking like this.

India’s pressure

19of the first 24 balls that both Siraj and Bumrah have bowled in this game have been dots
Will Young is itching to go.
But India hasn’t offered the release shot.
Even Siraj, who often goes searching for a wicket, bowling too full, has been impeccable with his length.
On a slow pitch – which effectively means batters can’t hit through the line or trust their timing for boundaries – with just a hint of movement still on offer with the new ball, both Bumrah and Siraj are tightening the noose.
They’re not going for the magic ball. They’re just stacking good balls up one by one and piling on the pressure. And it’s worked.
Mohammed Shami, playing his first match of the World Cup, comes in and picks up a wicket with his first ball on the back of all the good work his partners did earlier. Young is bowled. NZ 19 for 2.

India’s fielding

So this has been happening behind the scenes
And when Ravindra Jadeja took a smart catch against Bangladesh, he immediately signaled he deserved the medal.
Now when Iyer took this catch to remove Conway, he did the same, gesturing for the medal.

Siraj KOs Conway

He’s 0 off 8.
He gets one on the pads.
It’s pure relief. And maybe that dulls him just a tiny bit.
He knows it’s a boundary ball. He goes for a shot he plays well. The flick. He nails it.
But he hasn’t placed it. It’s too close to Shreyas Iyer at square leg and the catch is taken.
The celebrations are wild. Is it just because they’ve got an early wicket? Or was that a plan coming together?
Because Iyer was close, and just in front of square as well. He wasn’t an orthodox square leg. This is a slow pitch so maybe that’s why the position was different. On slow pitches, the ball goes in front of the square, as opposed to behind the square.
Anyway, dot-ball pressure matters. And this is proof. One of NZ’s big guns is gone early and gone for a duck.

The outfield

The players still aren’t completely comfortable with the relaid outfield in Dharamsala. This is the fourth match of the World Cup at this venue and right from the start there’s been a focus on its fitness.
Just now, in the third over, with Will Young retracting his bat after offering it to Jasprit Bumrah, and the ball just deflecting off it, went to the boundary because Siraj at third man didn’t seem confident about whether he could dive or not. He went for one in the end, but by that time, it was a bit too late. He doesn’t want to give runs away, but also he doesn’t want to get injured.
“Be careful with the outfield,” Ravi Shastri even said on the broadcast.
This, in the Indian Express today from Arun Dhumal, HPCA patron, and IPL chairman, on the Dharamsala outfield controversy: “I felt it was unnecessary controversy. Those who all played the game were fine with it. They said something before the game but when the same team scored 350 runs, they were fine with the outfield. There are two types of grass here, one is for cold and one is for summer. It has a different shade, one is rai and the other is paspalum grass. People thought it was different, there could be misunderstandings by seeing it. There was a shade issue in the outfield but everything is alright now.”

The Bumrah test

Bumrah is pristine to start.
The fact that he settles on a good length – the kind that forces a batter forward, but never gives him a drive – means he’s always in with a chance of early wickets.
Then there’s the swing he’s getting. He had Devon Conway flirting with a couple moving across him, and he had him fending when he went for the one that cut in.
Too good.

Toss: India bowl

India captain Rohit Sharma says India was at training yesterday and “dew started to come in pretty early”, so that’s the reason he’s taken the call to chase. With Hardik Pandya injured, there’s been some tinkering done.
Replacing a two-in-one cricketer is hard. Hardik walks into most sides as just a batter or a bowler. To compensate for his loss, India have brought in a batter – Suryakumar Yadav – and have sacrificed an allrounder to boost their seam stocks – with Shardul Thakur sitting out for Mohammed Shami. Even so, India is a bit light on the bowling front. Only five options as opposed to six. If one of them has a bad day, they have nowhere to turn to. This is why Hardik is such a crucial ingredient in this side. Without him, the balance doesn’t quite work.
India: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 KL Rahul (wk), 6 Ravindra Jadeja, 7 Suryakumar Yadav, 8 Mohammed Shami, 9 Jasprit Bumrah, 10 Kuldeep Yadav, 11 Mohammed Siraj
New Zealand: 1 Devon Conway, 2 Will Young, 3 Rachin Ravindra, 4 Tom Latham (capt & wk), 5 Daryl Mitchell, 6 Glenn Phillips, 7 Mark Chapman, 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Matt Henry, 10 Lockie Ferguson, 11 Trent Boult

The main attractions II

Both India and New Zealand have excellent top-order batters. But in this game, they may come up against the kind of bowling that’s figured them out in the past.
How Rohit Sharma and co deal with Trent Boult and co…
… and how Jasprit Bumrah and co deal with Devon Conway and co could be crucial to decide the way this game swings. For more such insights, enjoy our handy-dandy tactics board

Bond: NZ vs India’s top three could be the decider

The class of bowlers this game will feature is unreal.
There’s Trent Boult who has racked up 60 false responses (4th best) and 131 dot balls (2nd best) in the World Cup so far.
There’s Mitchell Santner who is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 11 wickets.
There’s Kuldeep Yadav who has only added to his mystery by upping his pace through the air
There’s Ravindra Jadeja, who as Sid Monga memorably noted, hits that good length area so hard he may as well draw water on some coastal areas.
Are New Zealand India’s bogey team in World Cups?

There’s Matt Henry, who not that long ago, was struggling to get into the NZ team. But he refused to give up. He lapped up every opportunity he had to keep playing cricket, whether that was with Canterbury back home or with Kent or Somerset or Derbyshire or Worcestershire in the English county circuit. He was the top wicket-taker in the Vitality Blast in 2023 – playing T20 cricket on perhaps the flattest pitch on earth, Taunton. This upskilling is the reason why he is keeping an all-time great in Tim Southee out of the team. Henry isn’t just a new-ball threat anymore.
And finally, there’s Jasprit Bumrah who does things that defy description (top for false responses and dot balls btw – 67 and 151). Put it this way. He’s as good at cricket as this lady is at skating.

Live Cricket Score of IND vs NZ: India opts to bowl against New Zealand in Dharamsala

 
IND vs NZ World Cup 2023 Live Updates: Over the past week, the Indian city of Dharamsala received the season’s first snowfall. As television cameras pan out behind the stadium, the Himalayan mountaintops are noticeable in their pristine white glory.



Temperatures are set to rise on Sunday, though, when the only two unbeaten teams at the Cricket World Cup meet. New Zealand and hosts India are 4-0 in the tournament, although the 2019 runners-up New Zealanders lead on net run rate. New Zealand began their tournament by beating defending champions England by nine wickets, and then made easy work of the Netherlands (by 99 runs), Bangladesh (by eight wickets), and Afghanistan (by 149 runs).



Those last three wins have come at a canter for the Black Caps and were never in doubt. The tougher part of their league campaign begins on Sunday, against two-time champions India, followed by Australia, South Africa, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.



Indeed, India have been steamrolling their opponents. They beat Australia by six wickets, brushed aside Afghanistan by eight wickets, beat archrivals Pakistan by seven wickets, and defeated Bangladesh by seven wickets.


Despite the difference in their styles of play, the winning records leave New Zealand and India separated only on that net run rate — New Zealand’s +1.923 ahead of India’s +1.659.


There is one common denominator — the use of fast bowlers in the middle overs.


New Zealand have used Matt Henry (nine wickets at an average of 18) and Lockie Ferguson (six wickets at 16.66) to good effect. Wrist spinner Ish Sodhi has been unable to get a game.


For India, it is much the same. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah leads the way and has picked 10 wickets in four games at an average of 13.40.


Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been ruled out of the game. He twisted his left ankle while bowling in Pune and has been sent to Bengaluru for rehabilitation. India hopes he will be available for its next game against England on Oct. 29.


Pandya has far better bowling returns (five wickets at 22.6) than Siraj (five wickets at 42.4). But his absence will be a bigger blow because he provides valuable balance to the side with both bat and ball.


Suryakumar Yadav is expected to get a game on Sunday and bat at No. 6. But India’s worry will be balancing out the bowling attack, as none of the top-order batsmen can reliably bowl.


Whether picking bowling all-rounder Shardul Thakur or pacer Mohammed Shami, India will only have five bowlers to choose from. It is likely to be inclined towards Shami to have the best chance to bowl 50 overs against an in-form New Zealand batting lineup.


The Black Caps continue to be without skipper Kane Williamson, and Tom Latham will once again be in charge. He has proven to be as inspirational as Williamson at the helm.


India and New Zealand have faced each other nine times in the ODI World Cup. Of these games, India has won only three times while New Zealand has come out victorious on five occasions, with one match being abandoned.


Both India and New Zealand are unbeaten so far in the tournament, registering four wins in as many games but the Kiwis are sitting atop the points table on account of a better net run rate.


So a win on Sunday will take both sides closer to the semifinals.
 
4:10

Bond: Kishan is better at the top but SKY perfect fit for No. 6

1win in nine matches for India against New Zealand in ICC tournaments since 1992. This is across all formats (excluding bilateral Tests in the WTC but including the final from 2021)
That stat, influential as it is, will go up against another that is equally compelling.
India is playing this ICC tournament at home, and at home, their record against New Zealand is 29 wins from 38 ODIs. That’s a win percentage of 76.
Tom Latham and his team might be rather more mindful of that second stat than the first. NZ maximizes its strengths by reading the conditions quickly and adapting its game to suit it. That was never more apparent than when these two teams met in the first match of the 2016 T20 World Cup when NZ picked three spinners and dropped both Trent Boult and Tim Southee.
India has done well to populate their side with failsafe. They aren’t reliant on their top order as much as they used to be. They aren’t reliant on their spinners as much as they used to be. They have battle-hardened talent who will know a little better now about what options to take when the pressure is on. They began this campaign by recovering from 5 for 3.
Dominance is fine but resilience is how you win World Cups and both these teams are pretty well stocked for that. This is a clash of the Titans and I get the pleasure of calling it for ESPNcricinfo. My name is Alagappan Muthu. Thank you for joining me.
