Ish Sodhi and Blair Tickner were recalled from New Zealand A squad to join the final ODI match against India tomorrow.
Initially, both Ish Sodhi and Blair Tickner were playing for the New Zealand A squad for the second unofficial Test against India A. The Kiwi players were called to join the international ODI squad for the final ODI match against India.
A number of Kiwi players are currently under the weather including Mitchell Santner and Tim Southee who are both fighting gastroenteritis, while Scott Kuggeleijn is miserable with the stomach flu.
In fact, Santner and Kuggeleijn weren’t included in the second ODI match against India in Auckland. However, Southee still made his way through his illness and delivered an impressive winning performance and took out Virat Kohli.
The New Zealand cricket team captain Kane Williamson was ruled out which led Tom Latham to stand in and lead the team. Williamson missed the last two T20Is and the first ODIs after sustaining a shoulder injury.
Now, Sodhi and Tickner are scheduled for training with the senior men’s squad at the Mount Maunganui. Meanwhile, Auckland Aces’ left-arm pacer, Ben Lister will be included in New Zealand A squad as a substitute.
India (-156.25) and New Zealand (+134) will continue the ODI series tomorrow at the Bay Oval, Tauranga, New Zealand. The Black Caps are leading with a series score of 2-0.
