The men in Blues is scheduled to fly to New Zealand to play the Kiwis 5 One-Day International’s and 3 T20 International matches just after completing the Gillette ODI series against Australia. The tour will begin from 23rd January onwards the 1st ODI to be played at McLean Park, Napier. We present you the 5 Predicted Bowlers who can shine in the tour. The Match Predictions will be based on the performance of these bowlers.
1) Trent Boult
The left-arm swing bowler has the perfect pace and length as his weapon to destroy oppositions batting line up. He is one of the top class World bowlers and leads New Zealand’s bowling unit.
The 29-year-old last year in November got a hat-trick against Pakistan and can be a big challenge for India. We Predict he can be the highest wicket-taker of the tour.
2) Bhuvneshwar Kumar
The master of swing bowling is very useful with his in-swingers and generally is handed the new ball to get early wickets. As BCCI has rested Jasprit Bumrah so the significant pressure will be on Bhuvi to get breakthroughs. He averages 38.22 in 95 ODI’s he has played.
3) Kuldeep Yadav
Very rarely you get to see China-men bowlers like Kuldeep Yadav who have a demand in low score-defending total. He changes with his stock delivery and with his Googly.
He has been dominating in overseas tour against South Africa and England and was the highest wicket-taker in South Africa and England with 17 and 9 wickets respectively. He is going to be a key for India in upcoming tours.
4) Tim Southee
The vice-captain of New Zealand loves to bowl alongside Trent Boult and gets heavy on the opening pair. The 30-year-old outswinger has developed a vast repertoire of deliveries.
He can read the surface quickly and then adjusts his pace, line, and length accordingly. He will aim to take the wicket of his IPL captain Virat Kohli to release the blow off the Kiwis.
5) Khaleel Ahmed
The Rajasthan born pacer had made his first international appearance in the 2018 Asia Cup held in UAE. Till now he has picked 11 wickets from 6 matches at an economy of 5.08, as Jasprit Bumrah won’t be available Ahmed will be likely to share the new ball with Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
These were the 5 Predicted bowlers where we predict one of them to shine in the tour.
