Live Streaming of India vs New Zealand Warm-up Match

As I write, India are playing New Zealand in their second and final warm-up match to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. India won the toss and chose to bat first. Star Cricket is telecasting the match live. You can head here for information on the Live Streaming of the India vs New Zealand Warm-up Match.

For a team that chases badly, I don't know if that was the good thing to do. May be it would have been a better idea for Dhoni to test out his batsmen in a chase. That would also have helped him finalize his crucial finishers. At the moment there is a toss up between Raina and Yuvraj for a slot in the team. More importantly, India need to finalize their batting positions.

Coming back to the match today, Tendulkar and Sehwag got our early after getting a start. Tendulkar scored 17 while Sehwag scored 23. Virat Kohli has just got out after steadying the Indian ship. He scored 59.

For New Zealand, Oram took 2 wickets while Southee claimed 1.

The current score is 148/3 off 29.1 overs. So New Zealand would know that India are well on the way to 300. That might be a tad too much for the Kiwis to chase down so they would be best off trying to gain a couple of wickets at this stage and stopping India to something in the range of 250 to 270.
