Pitch Report by Murali Karthik & Anjum Chopra
“It’s lovely day right here in Auckland. It’s a drop-in floor. It’s been below covers for greater than a day. We see a good masking of grass. The floor may dry up as the sport progresses. There’s one thing in it for the seamers. Common rating is 250. India shall be tempted to chase but it surely’s about countering the swing.”

Shikhar Dhawan forward of India’s match
“We guys have been performing properly for a time period. On the similar time, speaking about myself, I’ve to maintain performing. I do know until the time I carry out, it could be good for me. It retains me on my toes and retains me hungry.”
Gill as opener
Shubman Gill has proven his prowess as an ODI opener in a dozen video games he has performed thus far — he has a mean of 57-plus and a strike fee of 100-plus.
Who shall be India’s openers?
Dhawan shall be near 38 throughout subsequent yr’s World Cup. He has scored almost 1,000 runs in ODIs within the final two years. That is the one worldwide format he performs. Since T20 has extra priority, his appearances for India have been fairly sporadic. To place issues in perspective, each Kohli and Rohit have performed one-third of the variety of ODIs that Dhawan performed as they concentrated extra on Checks and T20Is.
India begins preparations for 2023 World Cup
After an extended and eventful T20 trip, the Indian workforce will get a welcome respite and grapple with the wants of a special format for the subsequent week.
