India start as favourites says Shane Watson

Anis Sajan

Shane Watson said India would start has favourites in the must win game against New Zealand where both teams have lost their opening game to Pakistan. He believed this one week break would have done India a world of good and it would have recharged their batteries after the loss to Pakistan in their opening game.

He added that the fire power of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will come good against Trent Boult as they have the recent experience of playing against him in the IPL. Moreover , India is definitely going to bounce back and all their players would like to make amends for the mistakes they made in the first game against Pakistan. He would like to see Shardul Thakur ahead of out of form Bhuvneshwar Kumar not only for his bowling but also for his power hitting batting which will be a added bonus.

In a zoom interaction with Mr. Anis Sajan, a.k.a Mr. Cricket UAE, He expressed that “Varun Chakravarthy will be a big threat to all the New Zealand batters ad barring Williamson none of them have played the mystery spinner and will find him difficult to read his different variations. Also he added that the form of Williamson is a big worry and he needs to fire if New Zealand has to beat India.”

New Zealand has a good record in ICC tournament against India and find ways to beat India and will have to be ready and can't take New Zealand lightly in this must win game for both teams as whosever looses the game will have to do catch up in their last three games.

His final verdict was India will beat New Zealand because of the fire power they posses as compared to the Kiwis.
