The last match of the three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand will be played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore today. Team India has already won this series and now its eyes are on clearing New Zealand. But among all these, one special thing will be kept in mind in this match. That is, will another double century be scored on this ground? This question is coming to mind because a double century has already come in this stadium. The second reason is that at present there are three batsmen in Team India who have scored a double century.
Martin Guptill scored a double century for New Zealand. He did this work in the 2015 World Cup. But there is no batsman in the current New Zealand team who has a double century in ODIs. It should not be a surprise if this work is done on this ground. It will not be surprising even if a batsman scores a double century from Team India.
today’s big news
Sehwag scored a double
This ground is the ground where the second double century in ODI history came. The world’s great batsman Sachin Tendulkar scored a double century for the first time in ODI history. He did this work against South Africa in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. After this, Virender Sehwag, who considered Sachin as his ideal, scored a double century in Indore city of Madhya Pradesh. Sehwag scored a double century against the West Indies on December 8, 2011 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. These grounds of Indore are high scoring grounds where it rains runs. Rohit had scored a century in T20 against Sri Lanka on this ground. Looking at the pitch of this ground, even a double century can be expected.
Team India has guts
So far only eight batsmen have scored a double century in ODI cricket at the international level. Out of these eight, five are from India, the remaining three are Chris Gayle, Guptill and Fakhar Zaman of Pakistan. From India, Sachin, Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and Shubman Gill have scored double centuries in ODIs. Three out of these five batsmen are currently a part of Team India. Gill had scored a double century in the very first match of this series. Before that, Ishan Kishan scored a double century against Bangladesh. Rohit has done the feat of scoring a double century thrice in ODIs. In such a situation, if another double century comes out of the bat of an Indian batsman on the pitch of Indore, which rains runs, then it will not be surprising.
At the same time, there are stormy batsmen in the New Zealand team who have the power to score a double century. Among them, the name of opener Finn Allen is at the forefront. If Glenn Phillips gets a chance to play above, then this batsman also has the power to score a double century.
