IND vs NZ Series: After T20 World Cup 2022, now Team India is ready to play again. India and New Zealand had lost in the semi-finals and the teams were eliminated. Now a series of three T20 and three ODIs is to be played between these two teams. Its first match will be on 18 November. Team India had already announced the team for the series. And the New Zealand team has been announced today itself. Meanwhile, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has praised the fast bowler of the Indian team and Umran Malik, playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the IPL. Umran Malik plays for SRH only and this team is commanded by Kane Williamson. Kane Williamson said that Umran Malik is very talented. Spent a lot of time with him last year and pace is his strength. It would be wonderful to see him play at the international level.
Kane Williamson gave a big statement on two coaches in England
The England cricket team has also selected different coaches for its different formats. Teams of other countries are also working on this formula now. Meanwhile, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson believes that this can only be done if the talent pool is large. Williamson was referring to teams like India having a large pool of reserve players, which is not possible in a small country like New Zealand. England have Brendon McCullum as coach for the Test team, while Matthew Mott is the coach of the limited overs team. Kane Williamson said in a virtual press conference ahead of the T20 series against India starting on Friday that so much cricket is being played that it is challenging not only for the players but also for the support staff.
Kane Williamson said, playing cricket continuously is also a big challenge
He said that playing matches every two or three days has its own challenges. There is a need to strike a balance in different formats around the world. He said that some countries have a huge pool of players who can do that. You are always trying to strike a balance so that players stay fresh. Williamson, captain of the Kiwi team that lost in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup last week, was asked whether England has set new standards for playing T20 cricket. He said that there are many strong T20 teams and we saw in the tournament that there were many upsets. England played very attacking cricket which suited the balance of their team. Every team likes to work on their strengths and play accordingly. Three T20s and three ODIs will be played in the series against India, which will be important for the preparation of the ODI World Cup to be held in India next year. India’s senior players have been ruled out of the series but Williamson believes that the Indian team has enough depth to pose a tough challenge to the hosts. After the disappointing performance in the World Cup, many changes will be seen in the Indian team.
