India vs NZ 2nd ODI: Hardik Pandya pranks field umpires, takes Karthik's place as striker
Indian batsman Hardik Pandya pulled a prank on field umpire during the 34th over when he stood on the strike confusing the umpires who thought that it should be Dinesh Karthik who should be batting. Indian bowlers looked in a better form than the 1st ODI and never let the Kiwi batsman breath freely. India are in a desprate need of a win to keep the series alive and also their campaign of getting number 1 position in all the formats of the game. Spin duo of Yadav and Chahal would also be key this match to tackle the Kiwis. New Zealand have won the toss and opted to bat. The Kiwis are unchanged. The Indians have made one change -- Axar Patel has replaced Kuldeep Yadav. India’s form at home that any defeat looks like a minor aberration.
