IND vs NZ, ODIs: Three young players to watch out for

After the final ODI against Sri Lanka to be played on January 15, Sunday, the Rohit Sharma-led team India (IND) will take on New Zealand (NZ) for a three-match ODI series set to get underway on Wednesday, with the first ODI set to be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. 

Post a sepulchral outing in the 20-20 World Cup 2022, the Indian selectors are banking on youngsters and one has to agree that several young cricketers will be a part of the series. We decided to handpick three young players from countries to watch out for, given that it is they who are taking the team forward.

Fin Allen, the young Kiwi batter, is proving his prowess with every passing game and eventually made a significant impact for the Black Caps during the 20-20 World Cup 2022. Much to the delight of the New Zealand fans, the player is in red-hot form in the 50-over format as well. 

For the unversed, Allen gathered 387 runs in the 50-over format in 2022, including 4 fifties at a strike rate of 94.39, eventually proving to be a great find for the team. With a high score of 96, Allen averaged 38.70 in the ODIs last year and he could be threatening in the upcoming series as well.
