India's cricket team aim to bounce back after losing the first One Day International (ODI) of ongoing three-match series, when it locks horns with New Zealand at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday. India is trailing the three-match series 0-1 with Ross Taylor's superb century helping New Zealand cricket team chase down a target of 348 in the first ODI in Hamilton on Wednesday. Team India led by Virat Kohli would look to make some changes in its playing 11, especially in the bowling department. The team management might give a chance to leggie Yuzvendra Chahal over Ravindra Jadeja, who leaked 64 runs in 10 Overs and remained wicket less.
Chahal was not included in the India playing 11 for the first ODI and while Kuldeep took two wickets, he was also conceded 84 runs and was thus the most expensive among the Indian bowlers. On the other hand, New Zealand skipper Tom Latham would like to go with the same playing 11 from first ODI, given the bowlers and batsmen stepped up in crunch situations. However, Scott Kuggeleijn is ruled out of the second ODI due to illness while according to various media reports Auckland pacer, the six-foot-eight tall Kyle Jamieson is set to make his debut on home ground on Saturday, replacing Ish Sodhi in the side.
