The third game is really important for India since they want to leave the tournament with a win. However, the weather forecast indicates that rain would probably interfere with the game at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval. Arshdeep Singh, an Indian bowler, spoke with the media prior to the last game and shared his thoughts on the two white-ball formats.
The youthful pacer, who is 23 years old, stated that he does not really distinguish between the T20I and ODI formats of the game. Even though the T20I format is rapid, a bowler must pay close attention to even the smallest aspects of the game in order to give his all in the allotted four overs.
I Attack In The Starting And Defend In The Last: Arshdeep Singh
Arshdeep Singh, however, claimed that he approaches both formats with the same mentality of attacking early and playing defence afterwards.
“As a bowler, I have not thought much that there is a lot of difference between these two formats. Just like now I am doing attacking bowling in the starting and defending in the last.
My aim is to take wickets for the team. So I have not yet thought that there will be some difference between these two formats. Wherever I get a chance to perform, I will deliver my best,” Arshdeep Singh explained.
The weather played a significant role in why the T20I and ODI series between New Zealand and India did not turn out to be as thrilling as some had anticipated.
Three of the five games that have been played so far on the tour have been affected by rain. Before the second ODI saw a similar outcome, the first T20I was abandoned and the third was washed out.
The rain threat is still present as Team India prepares for the final match of their New Zealand tour and hopes to tie the ODI series. The Men in Blue turned their attention to the ODI series after winning the T20I series by a score of 1-0.
However, India’s first two games did not go well as the second game at Hamilton was postponed following India’s defeat in the first game by seven wickets in Auckland.
