Fans can watch India vs. New Zealand cricket live online as the teams face off in the fifth and final One-Day International series with little on the line but pride.
New Zealand has already sealed a win in the series after winning three matches and drawing a fourth, knocking India out of its No. 1 ranking. For India, the stretch is part of a long slump dating back to their tour through South Africa, where they also failed to win any ODI matches.
The fifth ODI between India and New Zealand can be viewed live online thanks to ESPNcricinfo, which is offering live streaming video. The match starts at 14:00 local (1:00 GMT) from Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
The series may be out of reach and the No. 1 ranking isn’t returning soon, but with a win India could at least break out of its slump and gain some momentum and confidence going into the Test series set to start in early February.
After coming into the series hoping for simply a win or two, New Zealand is now looking to close out the series strong.
“It would be lovely. When we set out for this series, just a win would have been fantastic, but the way we have played in this series, to be as consistent as we have been, 4-0 will be a fantastic result,” said New Zealand’s Nathan McCullum.
Fans who watch the India vs. New Zealand cricket match live online will get to see if India can turn around its fortunes.
“I don’t think there is a big difference in what the sides are doing. It is about small things. We are making little errors,” said Ravindra Jadeja. “It is just that we panic a bit, and we have to reduce that percentage. I don’t think there is any major problem why we are not clicking in batting and bowling.”
