Weather Forecast for New Zealand vs India and Eden Park Pitch Report. On November 25, India and New Zealand will play the first of three ODIs at Eden Park.
The three-match One-Day International (ODI) series between New Zealand and India will begin on Friday, November 25, at Eden Park in Auckland. After winning the T20I series, the Men in Blue will look to maintain their momentum and focus on winning the ODI series. While the Blackcaps will head by regular captain Kane Williamson, India will be captained by Shikhar Dhawan.
Many of the players that played in the T20Is will also participate in the ODIs, while a handful have gone home. The weather has been a stumbling block on India’s tour thus far, and the players will be hoping that the sky stays clear and the rains stay away. The first match of the T20I series was called off, while the third and final T20I was similarly called off midway, resulting in a draw.
Players like Sanju Samson and Umran Malik, who were unable to gain a spot in the T20I squad, would be hoping for some playing time in the ODI series. Apart from the skipper, India’s batting unit is formidable, with notable players like Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, and Rishabh Pant. New Zealand, too, has a formidable team, and the Blackcaps will be hoping to get the ODI series off to a good start.
Weather Forecast New Zealand vs India: No chances of rain in the first game
Even though there will be rain in the morning, the weather will be bright and sunny throughout the match. There is no indication of rain after 11 a.m., and with the match set for 2:30 p.m. local time, a complete 100-over game is expected. The match will begin at 7:00 a.m., according to India’s schedule.
The humidity will be at 62%, with a 20% probability of precipitation. The temperature will be 18 degrees Celsius at the start of the game and will decrease to 15 degrees Celsius by the completion of the battle. Eden Park’s surface is typically batter-friendly, making it tough for pacers to have an effect. However, as the game progresses, the pitch typically slows, allowing spinners to have a bigger influence later on.
