Pressure Will Be More On New Zealand In Third ODI

By on March 7, 2009

Christchurch, Mar 7 (PTI) A confident India will look to continue their domination when they clash against New Zealand in the third cricket one-dayer here tomorrow, fully aware that the pressure will be more on the hosts who face a do-or-die battle.

Leading 1-0, a win tomorrow will ensure that India will not lose the series and they can push for the series-victory in the last two matches with a more relaxed approach.

But the two rain-marred matches at Napier and Wellington has not only upset the rhythm of the players to some extent, but has also put New Zealand in a tricky situation.

If the Blackcaps lose tomorrow’s crucial day-nighter at the AMI park, the door to a possible series victory would be shut on their face.

New Zealand have more at stake than India, who have gathered steam since their 0-2 rout in the Twenty20s.

Sehwag is in red-hot form and has already logged two half centuries (77 and 54) in the series and India will loom to him for yet another explosive start.

The Delhi master blaster has psyched Kiwi bowlers so much that except for Ian Butler and Danile Vettori, others are not sure where to put the ball. PTI
