Fans can watch the India vs. New Zealand cricket match live online as the teams face off in the second One-Day International match of a five-match series.
In the first ODI, New Zealand struck a 24-run win against India thanks to some short-pitched deliveries that forced four of India’s top six — Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni — to tall to to balls which they struggled to hook or pull.
The second ODI between New Zealand and India begins January 22 at 14:00 local time, 1:00 GMT. The match will be available for live streaming thanks to ESPN3.
Fans who watch the India cricket match live online will see whether the second ODI fares any better for the visitors, who have a lot on the line. India comes into its tour of New Zealand with its No. 1 ranking on the line, which it would likely forfeit to either England or Australia if New Zealand can take the series.
“The Indians are good players but at no point will we back away from a fight,” said New Zealand’s Mitchell McClenaghan. “We’re not going to be nice. We’re going to get in their face to let them know we intend to stamp our mark in the build- up to the World Cup.
“They’re the best [ODI] side in the world. Leading into a World Cup in our backyard we want to show consistency and demonstrate this is the best team we can muster. We’re not going to be taken lightly in 2015.”
