India vs New Zealand live cricket score, 4th ODI, Ind favorite to win against NZ

India vs New Zealand live cricket score, 4th ODI, Ind favorite to win against NZ as they have failed to inspire confidence by repeated bad performances

Bangalore: India and New Zealand are going to meet in the fourth match of the one day international series and the only thing that people want to know is whether New Zealand is capable of winning a single match against a capable opponent like India.

I am bemused by the way New Zealand players have completely failed to deliver during their Indian tour.

If they came up with some good performances during the test series when some of the players performed well, in the one day series, they have completely given up without any fight at all.

They have lost three matches of the series and if we include the one day series disaster in Bangladesh they have already lost seven matches in a row.

Vettori has failed to inspire his team. Individual players too have failed to take their team forward and lift the morale. So far no player of the team has come up with any exceptional or match winning knock.

On the other hand the Indian bowlers have come up with terrific performances in match after match amazing both admirers and detractors. The best performers during the series is captain Gautam Gambhir and the emerging powerhouse of Indian batting Virat Kohli. Both have played well constantly and given a head start to their team in all the three matches.

Indian bowlers particularly Sreesanth, Zaheer and spinner Ashwin have amazed many in the cricket world with their dazzling performance.
