The weather in New Zealand disappoints Aotearoa and Indian T20 cricket fans. The India tour to New Zealand began on November 18, 2022, with the opening T20 match at Sky Stadium in Wellington. The game was called off due to bad weather. The second T20 match at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui gave India a victory. It won by 65 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the series. The final match of the T20 series played on November 22nd at McLean Park in Napier, saw New Zealand bat for the whole 20 overs while India’s batting was halted by heavy rains. The match referee declared a tie using the DLS method, and disappointed fans.

ODIs starts tomorrow (25.11.2022)
But not all is lost for fans as the two teams will face off in the One Day International (ODI) series. The first ODI is scheduled for tomorrow 25 November 2022 and will be played in Eden Park, Auckland at 2.30 pm. The 2nd and the final match of the One-day international series will be played in Seddon Park, Hamilton and Hagley Oval, Christchurch on the 27th and 30th of November 2022 respectively. All three games will be played at 2.30 pm New Zealand time.

Team line-up

India will be led by captain Shikar Dhawan. Some of India’s key players, though, have been left out of the squad. The ODI series against New Zealand will be played without Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ravindra Jadeja.

Kane Williamson will lead the Black Caps team with a strong line-up of players.

Weather willing
Even though it has been raining in Auckland, cricket fans are awaiting tomorrow’s match with bated breath. The hopeful message, for now, is that the weather forecast predicts a sunny day tomorrow.
