Tourist New Zealand managed to register 19 runs victory in the fourth ODI of series to level it but it going to be their last match on this India’s 2016 tour. Hence Blackcaps will look to perform well in this final One Day at Vizag. However it is not easy for Kiwis to beat India in the last ODI as home team is playing really well with fresh bowling attack.
Batting has been sensational for Men in Blue and vice-captain Virat Kohli is batting superb the way he was doing in test cricket. He scored 85 runs in the first One Day of series and then smashed 154 runs not out in the fourth ODI that helped Indian team to win the matches comfortably. However he failed to score bug in previous match but can make it count on Saturday, diwali occasion.
Team management is likely to go with the same playing XI which played 4 matches of the series. Manish Pandey to play in the middle order just like previous four matches and Kedar Jadhav in the lower middle order. MS Dhoni to bat at number 4 position.
Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane will be opening for India once again in the fifth One-Day international. And this time great hopes from Rohit to play and perform well. Virat Kohli will be key player again at the top and will bat at number 3. Manish Pandey to bat at 4 meanwhile Hardik Pandya and Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be batting at 5 and 6 positions as per situation of the game.
MSD may come to bat again at fourth position if required just like Mohali and Ranchi One-Dayers. Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Amit Mishra will be key bowlers for MSD in the 4th match too. Hardik Pandya had great debut in ODI cricket and will look to repeat 3-wicket performance again in Visakhapatnam.
New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will be depending on his batting line-up which has shown some character in ODIs at some extent. Captain Williamson smashed century in the second ODI and became man of the match. Meanwhile in the last ODI, Taylor, Latham played good innings. Opener Guptill also played crucial knock in Ranchi ODI.
Meanwhile all-rounders Corey Anderson and Jimmy Neesham to bat well in the lower middle order along with wicket-keeper batsman Luke Ronchi. Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi and Santner will have to bowl really well to destroy team India’s batting line-up.
