India to retaliate
In the stumps of the fifth day, India lost the wickets of the openers. Scored 64 runs for the loss of 2 wickets. Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli are in the fold. India currently has a 32-run lead. If we can hold out today, the game will go to a draw. With a lead of more than 200, India is likely to send New Zealand to bat.
Possibility of a tie
It is true that bowlers have the upper hand in the competition. Therefore, hitters are not likely to attempt an aggressive performance. It is better for both teams to hit carefully. But New Zealand is hopeful if India can get out quickly. The Kiwis will try to finish India’s second inning with a lead of less than 150 runs.
